Weddingbells (Toronto) - - DESTINATIONS HOT HONEYMOONS -

FROM SARAH: From the mo­ment we set eyes on our venue, we knew it was the one. We loved that it is ex­clu­sive and more unique than con­ven­tional ban­quet halls. It has a grand yet in­ti­mate charm, and you re­ally can’t beat the “wow” fac­tor when driv­ing in. It also over­looks Lake On­tario and is sur­rounded by beau­ti­ful trails—we couldn’t have imag­ined a bet­ter venue. Since we had a lot of guests from out of town, we wanted to get ev­ery­thing go­ing quickly, so we started early and had pho­tos taken be­fore­hand. We spent the night prior apart, and, in the morn­ing, af­ter get­ting ready, it was so ex­cit­ing to see each other for the first time. It was nice to share that mo­ment with­out hav­ing too many eyes on us. One of our favourite de­tails was the cake, which we didn’t se­cure un­til the very last minute. We love Fer­rero Rocher any­thing, so we had that as our flavour for the bot­tom layer of the cake, fol­lowed by a straw­berry short­cake tier and topped with a lemon cake. Af­ter din­ner and speeches, we had ev­ery­one on the dance floor— our DJ was killing it. Mid­way, the mu­sic stopped and ev­ery­one was di­rected to look at a screen. Our same-day-edit video played, and the tent erupted in cheers when it was done. We didn’t know what to ex­pect, but it was be­yond what we had imag­ined. It cap­tured our day so per­fectly—we haven’t been able to stop watch­ing it since.
