Weddingbells (Toronto) - - IGNITE SOMETHING -

FROM TANG: Ry­lan and I had been dat­ing for 10 years be­fore we got mar­ried. He asked me out on MSN back in the day. He pro­posed in the back­yard of the house his grand­par­ents had lived in, where we were liv­ing. The wed­ding was re­ally mod­ern, laid-back and ca­sual. I think the theme and sta­tionery worked well around the blue lake, red ca­noe and red dress. The brides­maids wore blush and cham­pagne to avoid clash­ing with my red dress, and the men wore navy blue and white with black bow ties. From the very start, our wed­ding had a chill vibe be­cause nei­ther of us were stuck on a spe­cific vi­sion. I just knew I wanted to be mar­ried out­side in the sun­shine. The view from the din­ing room at the Drake Devon­shire was per­fect: It was a sunny sum­mer day, and there was an amaz­ing view of Lake On­tario to set the mood. I put off buy­ing a wed­ding dress for a while, past the eight-month order­ing time, so I took a chance and or­dered a cus­tom dress on­line. The red dress was a real hit and a sur­prise for ev­ery­one, be­cause I didn’t tell any­one I would be wear­ing red. In­stead of hav­ing a tra­di­tional dance floor and speeches, we de­cided to go with the flow and have a very re­laxed re­cep­tion where ev­ery­one could just chat, eat and en­joy the mo­ment.
