Weddingbells (Toronto) - - DETAILS REAL WEDDINGS -

FROM KLARA: We chose to have the cer­e­mony and re­cep­tion at Re­flec­tions at Ho­tel Ge­or­gia. We had a dif­fi­cult time pick­ing a venue ini­tially be­cause I had al­ways en­vi­sioned an out­door wed­ding, but with Van­cou­ver’s un­pre­dictable weather we needed a con­tin­gency plan. We went to a few venue meet­ings be­fore we picked Re­flec­tions. We loved the laid-back yet glam­orous vibe. Also, they had an in­door and out­door space. Our wed­ding vi­sion was to have guests walk around and min­gle while en­joy­ing some of our favourite foods from places we’ve vis­ited around the world—we didn’t even have as­signed seat­ing. Each dish we served told a par­tic­u­lar story about our trav­els. The best mo­ment of the day was when Bryan, one of the grooms­men, sang our first-dance song. The guy went all out—he even booked stu­dio time to prac­tise. He sang Ed Sheeran’s “Think­ing Out Loud,” which em­bod­ied ev­ery­thing we saw in our fu­ture. A favourite de­tail was the cake by Anna El­iz­a­beth, who was amaz­ing to work with. In­spired by Milk Bar’s ce­real milk ice cream, one of Nick’s favourite flavours, Anna ex­e­cuted a sim­i­lar flavour with the right amount of malty, crunchy good­ness.
