FROM TIF­FANY: Steve and I met on­line. The funny thing was, once we started talk­ing, we found out my child­hood best friend went to the same ele­men­tary school as him. Also, we both at­tended Univer­sity of Water­loo, and at one point we lived three doors down from each other at off-cam­pus res­i­dences and never met. I at­tribute this all to a mat­ter of tim­ing and fate! We knew we had to in­clude our “fam­ily” of lob­ster plushies into the wed­ding. On our first va­ca­tion to­gether we stum­bled upon a shop win­dow filled with lob­ster plushies. Steve knew he had to get me one af­ter I fell in love with them—every year since then, he’s added a lob­ster plushie to the fam­ily. For our big day, we dressed them up in tuxes and top hats. My two dresses were a favourite part of the day. We broke tra­di­tion—Steve had pre­vi­ously seen me in my In­bal Dror dress but didn’t see the fi­nal prod­uct, veil and all, un­til I walked down the aisle. The sec­ond dress was my up­dated ren­di­tion on a in­spired by a Galia Lahav gown that wasn’t avail­able at the time. The seam­stress did a bril­liant job with this cus­tom gown re­quest. Both gowns were de­mure with just a touch of sex­i­ness. Stand­ing un­der­neath our chup­pah was a dream. DT Flo­ral and Decor was able to bring my min­i­mal­ist halo-flo­ral vi­sion to life. I wish we could have camped out un­der it. Dur­ing the cer­e­mony I re­mem­bered to look up and around at our sur­round­ings, and at the peo­ple we love who came out to cel­e­brate and sup­port us.
