FROM MELANIE: We en­vi­sioned our wed­ding as a whim­si­cal fairy tale. I love the el­e­gance of green­ery and gold; we added sim­ple ac­cents and a mix­ture of rus­tic el­e­ments. A good friend and her mother made the wooden lanterns we had at the cer­e­mony and as cen­tre­pieces for the re­cep­tion. One of our favourite mo­ments was the speech made by Cory’s dad. It was way over the fiveminute limit, but it came from the heart and was worth ev­ery sec­ond. We had an awe­some candy and pop­corn bar—it wasn’t just a ta­ble with some items on it. This was in­side a big white tent, dec­o­rated with gor­geous emer­ald linens and fresh green­ery. There was candy ev­ery­where, pop­corn in bags, pop­corn to scoop, pret­zels…it was over­whelm­ing and I loved it all! The Danny Kramer Dance Band was amaz­ing. I can­not say enough about this classy band, their per­for­mance, the sound and how the dance floor was packed un­til the venue turned on the lights at the end of the night. Cory sur­prised ev­ery­one by jump­ing up to play the drums with the band. Cory loves play­ing the drums and has been play­ing since he was young. It was so much fun see­ing him be­ing spon­ta­neous. He and Danny Kramer did an ex­tended ver­sion of “Su­per­sti­tion” by Ste­vie Won­der.
