Wedding Bells (East) - - Real Weddings -

We wanted a bright and fresh pal­ette for the wed­ding. I just chose my favourite colours and de­cided I would make them work to­gether. Rose gold, navy, sage, blush and fuch­sia ended up be­ing a gorgeous com­bi­na­tion. We had a mixol­o­gist friend cre­ate a cus­tom wel­come cock­tail. It was a yummy, bub­bly, gin­ger-lemon­ade drink with a touch of sake, gin and spe­cial bit­ters. Peo­ple loved it and we were happy to add an ex­tra-fancy touch to the cock­tail hour. We took a lot of care in choos­ing the wed­ding-party at­tire. One of my brides­maids was amazed by how we en­sured their dresses matched the flow­ers and nap­kins. The grooms­men wore socks with fleur-de-lis on them be­cause we got mar­ried on Saint-Jean-Bap­tiste Day, a hol­i­day dear to Yvon’s heart. In the end, it all came down to ex­chang­ing vows in front of loved ones and join­ing our lives for­ever. It’s not an over­rated mo­ment. Dur­ing din­ner we took a quiet mo­ment to­gether to ap­pre­ci­ate how 200 peo­ple we care about came from all around the world to cel­e­brate with us. That was ac­tu­ally how we de­scribed it when we made the wel­come toast: it was “our love party!”
