Katie & Serge Wedding

Boaden Banquet Centre

Boaden Banquet Centre is a quaint little wedding venue in Mississauga. But don’t let its simple exterior fool you. Inside it houses three completely independent reception halls and can accommodate weddings with a 250 guest count. This all-inclusive venue offers both ceremonies and receptions right on site. They even include quick turnovers of the two setups while your guests are free to mingle during cocktail hour. Katie and Serge’s civil ceremony and reception were both held at Boaden Banquet Centre.

McMillan Park

I first met this couple at Canada’s Bridal Show, when they bumped into my vendor’s booth. Right off the bat, they seemed fun-loving couple that were so laid back and up for anything when it came to pictures. They haven’t changed much since that first time we met and photographing their wedding was so much fun. The bride constantly had the biggest smile on her face during our portrait session at McMillan Park. The groom as a different story.

So it turns out the night before the wedding, the groom had an old back injury flare up which sucks. As someone who has similar issues with her knee, I felt his pain all day. And it’s not like the late autumn weather helps. So we took it slowly throughout the wedding day. No crazy poses. No jumps, no lifts, no twists. And definitely no dips. Since sitting seemed to help his condition, I utilized it as much as I could. And for the most part, we kept him standing upright as much as possible. Aside from the pain I knew he was feeling, Serge was such a trooper. He put a brave face on and seemed to genuinely enjoy the session and the company of his family and friends.

The bridal preparation took place at the Hilton Garden Inn in Mississauga. The room was flooded bridesmaids and excitement. Katie opted to include a bridesman as well. He was as into the hair and makeup experience despite not needing either service. The bridal party sported satin robes as well as custom identity socks. The hair and makeup team created such a lovely yet “weatherproof” look for Katie. It came in very handy when we were dealing with the heavy winds of their autumn portrait session.
