This couple appreciates all the right things about each other, from joyful spontaneity to the importance of top-notch grilled cheese sandwiches. And their event certainly reflects their easy adaptability to planning, as well as their love of family and friends. Hartley and Reg decided to get married on Lake Ontario, where they both grew up. In fact, they were even married in the same church that hosted her grandparents' wedding day! "That sense of history was important to me," Hartley remarks.

Thank you to Kate Ignatowski for sharing this sweet wedding day with us!
