LUCIA SANSONE & MICHAEL TRUDEAU
AUGUST 5 & 6, 2017
FROM LUCIA: Mike proposed at Quinta da Regaleira, a beautiful Gothic palace in Sintra, Portugal. I was taking pictures from the top of one of the towers and when I
turned around he was on his knee with the perfect ring. We wanted the wedding
to fall on the August long weekend. It was important we have a multi-day celebration with family and friends in Toronto before returning to London, U.K., where we live. After the church ceremony we had an intimate garden party at Michael’s family home to get the celebrations started and ensure we spent time with everyone. The wedding theme was inspired by The Great Gatsby. It’s a vibe that suits our
personalities, as we both love a bit of glitz and glam, plus it matched the decor of Malaparte. We chose silver, black and gold accents to complement the venue. The cake was as delicious as it
was gorgeous. Patricia understood our vision and tied it to the Gatsby theme. It was made with layers of salted caramel and red velvet, our favourite flavours.
We ended the night with a bang. Guests held up sparklers while we kissed on the staircase under the stars. It was amazing!
