FROM AMY: From the be­gin­ning, we knew we wanted our wed­ding to be soft and ro­man­tic. Our venue, the Belvédère, is breath­tak­ing, so we felt it didn’t need elab­o­rate decor. In­stead, Charly and I de­cided to en­hance the at­mos­phere with lots of pink and white flower ar­range­ments. Erin from Full Bloom ex­e­cuted our en­tire flo­ral vi­sion— she even made an amaz­ing flo­ral col­lar for our Ber­nese moun­tain dog, Lucy. Our favourite mo­ment of the day was walk­ing down the aisle. We opted out of do­ing a first look be­cause we wanted to build the ex­cite­ment lead­ing up to the cer­e­mony. Fi­nally get­ting to see my groom at the end of the aisle— and Charly see­ing me in my dress—was mag­i­cal. The cake that Cather­ine from Cather­ine’s Cak­ery cre­ated for us was be­yond words. All the de­tails and sugar flow­ers were un­be­liev­able, and not only was it gor­geous, but it was the best (and fluffi­est) lemon cake we’ve ever tasted. The finest de­ci­sion we made was hir­ing Amanda from Pink Tuxedo Pro­duc­tions. She is a mas­ter at her craft and has the per­fect per­son­al­ity to be a videog­ra­pher. She was in the back­ground most of the time yet she cap­tured all the beau­ti­ful mo­ments of the day—and some that I missed! She pro­duced footage that we can re­live over and over again.
