Weddingbells (Toronto) - - REAL WEDDINGS -

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.
