REAL WED­DINGS

Wedding Bells (East) - - CONTENTS -

FROM CARO­LINE: Luke pro­posed dur­ing my birth­day week­end in Toronto. I met his sis­ter for lunch and upon re­turn­ing to the ho­tel we were greeted by her boyfriend, dressed as a gi­ant rose. He es­corted us up to the room where Luke was wait­ing—the room was dec­o­rated with roses and can­dles. Luke asked if I wanted to hang out for the rest of our lives, and I said yes! We chose to have the wed­ding at a fam­ily-owned water­front property in the Thou­sand Is­lands. Hav­ing an out­door celebration was very im­por­tant to us, and we feel so for­tu­nate to have been mar­ried at such a unique and mean­ing­ful place we can re­turn to for years to come. Our wed­ding cake was amaz­ing. We chose a lemon cake with but­ter­cream and lemon mous­se­line, plated with lo­cal sea­sonal berries. It was the first and only cake we tasted and it was de­li­cious. We were re­ally lucky to have a caterer with a fan­tas­tic in-house pas­try chef. It was very im­por­tant to us to have live mu­sic at the wed­ding re­cep­tion. We both come from mu­si­cal fam­i­lies and truly ap­pre­ci­ate how much live mu­sic brings to any event. The Sway Band’s tal­ent, reper­toire and abil­ity to keep the dance floor go­ing for hours blew us away. They were truly the life of our party!
