CAMILLE VERSCHOORIS & ANDREW LOUNSBURY

JUNE 11, 2016

Weddingbells (Toronto) - - REAL WEDDINGS -

FROM CAMILLE: Andrew pro­posed in Van­cou­ver where I grew up. We were walk­ing around my old neigh­bour­hood of Yale­town when it started pour­ing rain— hard! I turned around, and the next thing I knew, Andrew was on one knee propos­ing. We wanted our wed­ding to be full of two things: laven­der and chill, happy vibes. Laven­der smells so lovely, but it also served as a trib­ute to my mother, who loved the flower. Our venue, The Bur­roughes, was the per­fect place to hold the re­laxed, con­tem­po­rary cel­e­bra­tion we were en­vi­sion­ing— espe­cially its cool rooftop pa­tio. We had a va­ri­ety of mul­ti­cul­tural food and drinks at our wed­ding. The Thai food was de­li­cious, and the South African, French and Cana­dian wines and Chi­nese beers were a huge hit with the guests. We also had the best cof­fee from Box­car So­cial served at the end of the night; ev­ery­one loved it. The whole night was full of so many spe­cial mo­ments. We were for­tu­nate to cel­e­brate Andrew’s grand­mother’s nineti­eth and my grand­mother’s eight­i­eth birth­days, and our par­ents’ speeches were in­cred­i­bly touch­ing. The best part was be­ing sur­rounded by our clos­est friends and fam­ily mem­bers, many of whom had trav­elled so far to be there. It was un­for­get­table.
