Wedding Bells (West) - - Real Weddings -

FROM AYLEE: Solomon and I wanted to get mar­ried in a gar­den rem­i­nis­cent of my child­hood-home back­yard. We en­vi­sioned an ethe­real and ro­man­tic look, but wanted it to have a bit of an edge. For this rea­son, we chose pale pinks, white, sil­ver and navy for our pal­ette. We had our first dance to a slow ver­sion of “Home” by Ed­ward Sharpe and the Magnetic Ze­ros. This song was per­fect for us be­cause we met in Toronto, where nei­ther of us grew up, and re­cently re­lo­cated to Scotts­dale, Ari­zona, which was also a new place to us. So the song lyrics “home is wher­ever I’m with you” re­ally res­onated with us. We con­sider our­selves to be food­ies, thus good food was a ne­ces­sity. The Four Sea­sons Ho­tel Van­cou­ver cater­ing team worked with us to cre­ate a highly unique and de­lec­ta­ble menu in­spired by dishes from our favourite Toronto restau­rants. Af­ter din­ner, ev­ery­one hit the dance floor to tunes by Side One. They kept the floor full through­out the night, in­cor­po­rat­ing many songs made by spe­cial re­quest. For the very last dance of the night, Solomon and I slow danced sur­rounded by a cir­cle of wed­ding guests linked arm in arm. The love from our fam­ily and friends was pal­pa­ble!
