NICOLE SCHAEFFER & ANDREW LIVEY
OCTOBER 1, 2016
FROM NICOLE: Andrew and I met while we were working at the same advertising agency. We were assigned to work on a pitch for Jackson Triggs, so I guess you could say wine brought us together, though not in the usual way! Several after- hours trips to the local watering hole, Bar Wellington, ensued, and the rest is history. Our wedding theme was rustic, country club chic. Andrew’s father is a member at The Caledon Mountain Trout Club, so we were very lucky to be able to hold our wedding there. It is a club rich in history, tucked away and preserved, and it was the ideal backdrop for the elegant, rustic affair we envisioned. The florals at our celebration were truly idyllic. Our florist constructed lush garlands for our harvest tables out of beautiful, fragrant eucalyptus with white floral accents. For the ceremony, she constructed a gorgeous arbour out of birch and decorated it with wildflowers, more garlands and white roses. All the flowers complemented the natural setting perfectly. We decided to do our first look in a wooded area on the grounds since it had been raining off and on all day. I could feel my heart racing as I walked up behind Andrew underneath a canopy of huge, magical fir trees. The expression on his face when he turned around and we both saw each other for the first time is something I will never forget.
