Weddingbells (Toronto) - - IGNITE SOMETHING -

FROM MARYANN: The pro­posal was a to­tal sur­prise and was com­plete with a party to cel­e­brate with fam­ily and friends, and a trip to Paris. Rob had planned the en­gage­ment for weeks with my sis­ter. He booked a suite at the Ritz- Carl­ton and lined the hall­way with rose petals and pic­tures of us. I was so sur­prised to see him in a black suit and tie that Rob had to re­mind me to keep walk­ing to­ward him. Our wed­ding theme was a fu­sion of The Great Gatsby and The Os­cars with a flare of vin­tage in­spi­ra­tion, since we both loved the Gatsby re­make and the style of the times. Plus, we’ve al­ways shared a fond­ness for movies, and I have a hid­den pas­sion for fash­ion, es­pe­cially watch­ing the red car­pet at The Os­cars. The cer­e­mony at St. Joseph’s church was ev­ery­thing we had both dreamed of. It was grand and beau­ti­ful, full of many laughs and a few tears of joy. After­ward, we had a pri­vate shoot with our pho­tog­ra­pher with just a few mem­bers of the wed­ding party. This was a great op­por­tu­nity for us to ap­pre­ci­ate our new bond while shar­ing laughs with a more in­ti­mate group. The evening took off when DJ Fombi (a.k.a. Rob) lit up the dance floor for a solid 20 min­utes. I was by his side, the dance floor was full, and it was just an in­cred­i­ble mo­ment to share with all our friends and fam­ily.
