Bianca and Gary’s wedding is a beautiful combination of romance and classic elegance. It’s rare for a wedding to incorporate a dreamy cherry blossom scene with a historical setting, but this combination certainly formed an unique wedding theme for the lovely couple, and it’s absolutely stunning. Every image captured by the talented Brandon Scott Photography portrays love and joy – the natural interaction between the couple, the loving family bond, and all the neat little details. Join us as we share Bianca and Gary’s wedding story below.
The love story
Bianca: Gary and I grew up nearby each other, only a few streets away. We attended the same schools throughout, but ironically didn’t actually meet until after graduating university! We shared many of the same interests and activities, and quickly formed a strong bond. We dated for 5 years before Gary proposed in October 2011.
Bianca: Gary proposed to me during our vacation to Montreal. We had finished dinner at a restaurant and were strolling through the city, when he stopped on the steps of the famed Notre-Dame Basilica and asked for my hand in marriage. It was the perfect setting, and a private moment for us.
Thoughts from the couple
Our vision for the wedding was that of classic elegance. The venue for our ceremony was on the manicured lawns of a late 19th-century Italian Renaissance style building, and the reception hall overlooking the riverfront. The weather couldn’t have been more perfect for a May wedding in Canada! The flowers and trees were in full bloom, and our photographers took full advantage and incorporated it into the wedding photos. We couldn’t have been any happier with how the day went, and are so thankful to have shared the experience with our families and friends.
Thoughts from the photographer
Brandon Scott Photography: Gary + Bianca’s wedding was in May and in the small 1.5 week window when the trees are in full bloom. Their outdoor ceremony was held at one of the most historic buildings in Windsor. Incorporating the soft pinks and whites with trees in bloom worked perfectly.

The bride’s favorites
Best wedding moment: During Gary’s speech he promised to do whatever he could to make sure I was always happy, including getting me a puppy! Over the years I have always wanted a puppy however Gary had been reluctant to agree. This was an exciting surprise!
Favorite wedding details: Instead of hiring musicians, we asked my uncle to play the guitar at the ceremony. Over the months leading up to the wedding this became a family affair and along with my uncle, my aunt and two cousins all learned music to play at various parts of the ceremony. This was a great personal touch!
