Wedding Bells (East) - - REAL WEDDINGS -

FROM JESSIE: John pro­posed on Christ­mas Eve. He asked for my dad’s per­mis­sion on the an­nual fam­ily trip to the tree farm where we pick out our Christ­mas tree. John got down on one knee in front of my fam­ily, and we cel­e­brated af­ter­ward with cham­pagne. We wanted to high­light the clas­sic el­e­gance of the Château Lau­rier through the wed­ding decor. We chose white, blush, sil­ver and gold as our colours. We had cus­tom-cut mir­rored table­tops to re­flect all the light­ing in the room and to re­ally make it sparkle. The flow­ers were such an im­por­tant de­tail. The five-tiered cake was even more gor­geous thanks to real flow­ers be­tween each tier. We had flow­ers draped over the chan­de­lier above our sweet­heart ta­ble, and the orchids and large cherry blos­som trees with trail­ing wis­te­ria added a touch of el­e­gance. The church cer­e­mony was the best mo­ment of the day. We got mar­ried in the church our fam­ily has at­tended for gen­er­a­tions. The cer­e­mony was so sen­ti­men­tal, and the of­fi­ciant was the same pri­est who mar­ried my par­ents 35 years ago!

THE FLOW­ERS WERE SUCH AN IM­POR­TANT DE­TAIL.
