Wedding date: February 11, 2012
Wedding theme: Winter wedding
Best moment: “For me, I think it was walking down the aisle and seeing Jordan’s face for the first time. The sun had set, the candles were lit and the flowers were cascading all around us. It truly felt like we were the only two people in the room,” says Michelle.
Favourite detail: “There were so many fun details! Rather than a guest book, we chose a wish tree where our guest could hang their pearls of wisdom and well wishes; we displayed photos of our parents and grandparents on their wedding days at the entrance to the Great Hall so our guests could have a sneak peak at where we came from; we had a signature cocktail named for my husband; delicious cupcakes covered in silver snowflakes from Little Cakes Cupcake Kitchen; a piano playing DJ; and we gave our guests a taste of our childhood with fresh cookies, baked with love by our three grandmothers. We loved all the little details, which our fabulous photographer Barb Cameron captured beautifully; and thank goodness, if it weren’t for her photos it would be hard for me to remember all those wonderful details! But above all – we loved our flowers. We worked with Michelle VandenBosch who made the grey cement walls and large windows of the art gallery come to life,” explains Michelle.
Wedding song: “Harvest Moon” by Neil Young. “We didn’t think too much about it really, we had a few choices that we thought would work, but at the end of the day, it seemed the most appropriate choice. It’s a beautiful song and it complemented our personalities so well. The song is honest, caring, humble, cheerful, with just a bit of an edge,” says Michelle.
