AU­GUST 5 & 6, 2017

Weddingbells (Toronto) - - Real Weddings -

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!
