Weddingbells (Toronto) - - REAL WEDDINGS -

FROM NATALIE: Simon and I met at a New Year’s Eve party hosted by my room­mate. Call it cliché, but as soon as he walked in the room, I knew he was the man I wanted to get old and wrinkly with. We’ve been in­sep­a­ra­ble ever since. Simon pro­posed in New York City with a three- round trivia game. Each round of the game had a dif­fer­ent prize: the first round was tick­ets to a com­edy show that night, the sec­ond round was a trip to Ja­maica the next morn­ing and the third round was a love let­ter, in which he said I’m his best friend and he couldn’t think of spend­ing the rest of his life with any­one else, and I agreed, of course! Our wed­ding had a gar­den theme with an in­dus­trial edge. We wanted to have a beau­ti­ful but re­laxed party in an un­ex­pected place, so we chose District 28— an ur­ban event space with a su­per- hip vibe— as our venue. To match the unique look of the space, we chose a pal­ette of li­lac and deep plum, with lots of green­ery and cream ac­cents. The food was def­i­nitely a high­light of the day. Mark McEwan did an in­cred­i­ble job— ev­ery­thing was so de­li­cious! I espe­cially loved the amaz­ing lobster spoons.
