Weddingbells (Toronto) - - Real Weddings -

FROM MARY: We planned the wedding from 5,400 kilo­me­tres away! Our wedding was in Toronto and we live in White­horse. The Yukon is amaz­ing in its pure, un­de­vel­oped beauty. We wanted to bring some of that love for the out­doors to Toronto, which is what in­spired the theme of “ethe­real wood­land” and a colour scheme of green, peach and bur­gundy. I did a lot of DIY for the day. I cre­ated the in­vi­ta­tions, all the pa­per goods and the guest map. My fa­ther is su­per handy so he made the arch un­der which we were mar­ried. He trans­ported it from his house an hour away from the cer­e­mony—that was such a spe­cial mo­ment for me, as it was a labour of love for him. Shop­ping for my wedding dress with my mom, sis­ter and one of my brides­maids was amaz­ing. We met in Van­cou­ver and spent two days hunt­ing for the one. I was so thrilled to find it, a de­sign I had en­vi­sioned wear­ing. Dur­ing the re­cep­tion we lost power for an hour and did our big en­trance to no mu­sic and can­dle­light. Our wedding was on the same day as the fi­nal per­for­mance of The Trag­i­cally Hip tour. There was a live broad­cast on gi­ant screens near the re­cep­tion and it blew a breaker. We rolled with it!
