FROM KRISTA: Grant pro­posed when we went on a trip to Italy. He sur­prised me at my favourite beach bar restau­rant on the Amalfi Coast, just be­side the Ital­ian vil­lage of Posi­tano. It was com­pletely un­ex­pected and in­cred­i­bly sweet. We got mar­ried on the rooftop of the Broad­view Ho­tel in Toronto. We orig­i­nally planned the wed­ding for the Toronto Is­lands, but it was flooded. We changed the wed­ding venue to the Broad­view just 10 weeks be­fore the wed­ding day—we signed on while it was still a con­struc­tion site. We couldn’t have been hap­pier with how it turned out! We wanted the theme to match the venue. The Broad­view is an ur­ban-chic his­tor­i­cal ho­tel with modern in­spi­ra­tion from lo­cal cul­ture, so we chose min­i­mal decor to let the venue speak for it­self. We loved tak­ing pho­tos in its Broad­view Av­enue and Queen Street neigh­bour­hood. The cock­tail party on the ter­race and amaz­ing din­ner were high­lights of the evening. We didn’t have some tra­di­tional el­e­ments such as a wed­ding cake or a first dance song. We wanted ev­ery­one to have good food and drinks and en­joy an evening of just be­ing to­gether.
