Halloween-Themed Wedding at Nottawasaga Inn Resort in Alliston, ON

Shannon + Jeff were introduced to us through their good friends, Victoria + Dan, who’s beautiful wedding we captured last year at Belcroft Estates.

We immediately liked Shannon + Jeff, not only because they are die-hard Maple Leafs fans who bleed blue (Go Leafs), but because they are an amazing couple. Jeff voiced it perfectly in his vows, when he said that they are soul mates. We couldn’t agree more.

Shannon + Jeff were married this past Saturday at the Nottawasaga Resort in Alliston, ON. Since their event date was so close to Halloween, they thought it would be a great idea to throw a Halloween-themed wedding reception. When they first told us of the concept, we didn’t know what to expect but we knew it was going to be unique. And it was! In fact, we couldn’t have imagined a more fun-filled party.

At one point during the evening, we can recall walking past the entryway to the reception hall and remarking how inviting the room felt. The lights twinkled overhead within the beautifully designed archway to greet the guests, the candy buffet beckoned in the distance, the music was pumping and everyone was decked out in costume. People were so creative with their festive attire! We were thoroughly impressed at Shannon’s decorative skills and her ability to create such an entertaining atmosphere.

Once the bridal party entered the room with their highly anticipated Grand Entrance, Shannon + Jeff went straight into their first dance. Jeff gracefully dipped Shannon, then the music stopped, the room went dark, they hopped into place and joined their bridal party for a rousing surprise musical number of The Rocky Horror Picture Show’s “Time Warp.”

That was only the beginning of the fun dance selections throughout the evening. One of our favourites was the Bride and Nephew dance between Shannon and her nephew, Sam. They started off together, then branched out to encourage all the guests to get out on the dance floor and move to the music.

It truly was an awesome celebration! Thank you for inviting us to your Halloween party. We had such a fun time!

    Paul and Melanie,

    Thank you so much for the beautiful blog! I didn’t cry on the wedding day, but teared watching the video and seeing our sneak peak of photos. You two are truly the best, and we couldn’t have picked a better photo/videography team.

    So many guests complimented you as well, and i gave them your information for their events. (My MOH said she WILL pick you when it’s her turn!)

    Thanks again for everything. Words simply cannot express our gratitude enough.
