Weddingbells (Toronto) - - IGNITE SOMETHING -

FROM ABI­GAIL: Jor­dan and I met at a ca­sual gath­er­ing at a friend’s place. I came over to play some games, and Jor­dan had just moved in with said friend and was new to Toronto. Af­ter that we saw each other of­ten. The sparks grew slowly, but steadily, un­til we re­al­ized we were more than just friends. On our first date, we went to the mem­o­rable Luma and walked around the city. Since then, we’ve been ex­plor­ing down­town Toronto to­gether. Pick­ing a wed­ding date was a happy co­in­ci­dence. Jor­dan and I both stud­ied math, and our wed­ding date cor­re­sponded to the first five dig­its of the math­e­mat­i­cal con­stant pi (3/14/15), a once- in- a- life­time oc­cur­rence. The soft blush and vin­tage gold theme was in­spired by our venue at One King West—the orig­i­nal head­quar­ters for the Do­min­ion Bank, built in 1914. With a gold- leaf- cof­fered ceil­ing and Corinthian col­umns, the space lent it­self to a ro­man­tic jazz-age-in­spired wed­ding. We in­cor­po­rated a lot of per­son­al­ized de­tails into the cel­e­bra­tion, but the band was our favourite. Hav­ing live jazz mu­sic through­out the night tied in well with the vin­tage theme, his­toric venue and my love of swing danc­ing.
