Weddingbells (Toronto) - - REAL WEDDINGS -

FROM LORELLE: I met Scott when I was in Grade 12 and he was in first year at West­ern Univer­sity. I was vis­it­ing the school on a cross- coun­try re­cruit­ing trip, and let’s just say that af­ter meet­ing Scott, en­rolling there was an easy choice! We chat­ted on MSN all sum­mer, and then started dat­ing that Septem­ber when I moved to London, On­tario. We wanted a mod­ern but rus­tic venue that didn’t need much dec­o­ra­tion. Steam Whis­tle Brew­ing’s high ceil­ings, big win­dows, ex­posed brick and wooden beams were per­fect for our wed­ding style. Ul­ti­mately, all we wanted was a per­sonal cer­e­mony, a good meal and great mu­sic to dance to, and Steam Whis­tle de­liv­ered all of that. Scott was adamant about choos­ing “wood” as our wed­ding colour to “match the venue.” In the end, we de­cided on a pal­ette of a white, green and dusty pink. The brides­maids wore green and pink dresses, the bou­quets were white and green, and the cen­tre­pieces were made up of green­ery with white pil­lar can­dles on a live-edge wooden charger (for Scott). Walk­ing down the aisle with my dad was my favourite mo­ment of the day. Turn­ing the cor­ner to see Scott wait­ing pa­tiently, with all of our friends and fam­ily sur­round­ing me, was pretty sur­real. There’s re­ally noth­ing else like it!
