Weddingbells (Toronto) - - REAL WEDDINGS -

FROM LAURA: I can’t pin­point the mo­ment I met Tony, but I def­i­nitely re­mem­ber the mo­ment I fell in love with him. We were out on a date for Valen­tine’s Day, and nei­ther of us wanted the night to end. Sparks truly flew, and about a month later, I was sure I wanted to spend the rest of my life with him. Our wed­ding theme was classy and ele­gant with an added el­e­ment of sparkle. I love sparkles, but I also wanted the decor to ex­ude ele­gance, class and, most im­por­tantly, ro­mance. I think we were suc­cess­ful with that. Our colours were gold, black and white, along with pink ac­cents from the florals, and the brides­maids all se­lected their gowns in shades of gold, cham­pagne or rose gold. My grand­mother gave me aqua­ma­rine ear­rings and a match­ing ring for Christ­mas this past year, which I in­cor­po­rated into my look as “some­thing blue.” She re­ceived them as a gift for her wed­ding al­most 65 years ago in Italy, so they’re truly pre­cious as fam­ily heir­looms. I am so lucky to have worn them on my wed­ding day—they re­ally com­pleted my look. The short yet ro­man­tic walk home as new­ly­weds was the per­fect end to the night. The hall is only about 200 me­tres from our house, so my new hus­band and I walked home hand in hand in our fancy clothes. If the neigh­bours had been up they would have thought we were crazy, but we were just two love­birds start­ing our mar­riage off right.
