Erin and Tony met in university when Tony took a trip to visit friends at the University of Western Ontario, where Erin happened to be attending school. While out at a popular university hangout, the two connected and realized they both grew up only 20 minutes away from each other!
While the couple was vacationing in Vancouver, they took a day trip to Stanley Park to visit the Siwash Rock. With the sun setting and a view of the Pacific Ocean serving as a stunning backdrop, Tony took the ring out of his pocket and proposed to Erin.
For their spring celebration, Erin and Tony had a day outfitted with the colours and flowers of the season, including a pale pink and purple colour scheme and pretty peony bouquets. Even their red velvet and chocolate truffle cake was adorned with pink rose petals.
“To end the night, Tony and I danced to one of our favourite songs, Coldplay’s 'Paradise' and it brought me to tears," says Erin. "It was such an incredible day -- one we will never forget.”
While Erin and Tony are planning on taking their honeymoon to Hawaii in April, they went on a mini ‘moon to Niagara-on-the-Lake following the wedding.
