A Glamorous Old Hollywood Wedding at Billings Estate in Ontario, Canada
Victoria Pennell (27, Parliament Hill Police) and Mathieu Cornish (29, Public Servant) met online and starting dating immediately after they met. The couple dated for 18 months before they got engaged. Mathieu proposed when the couple took advantage of a Facebook offer giving out free couples photos for a day. "We had traveled together and when we had couples photos, he never looked happy when he smiled! When a photographer I followed on Facebook needed couples for a free photo shoot, I decided it would be a great opportunity for him to practice smiling for a camera. Well, before we left, he told me to wait a minute and he came back and got on one knee and asked me to marry him. So the photos we had taken turned to be our engagements photos!" Victoria recalls. The couple had an Old Hollywood theme for their wedding, with top hats and canes for the groom and groomsmen and vintage film reels used in the reception decor. A color palette of black, white and red also helped bring their glamorous, Old Hollywood wedding to life.
