Joseph proposed to Kristina on their second anniversary during a weekend golf getaway. When Kristina went to retrieve her ball from the 18th hole on the golf course, she came across a special gold ball that Joseph had planted earlier that day.“I excitedly picked up the gold ball thinking it had been placed there by the resort, and that I had won a free drink!” Kristina recalls. “When I looked at the ball, on it spelled out in black were the words, ‘Will you marry me?’ I turned around and Joseph was on his knee holding out a ring box. ”
The couple opted for a vintage theme to suit the classic decor of their venue, One King West. “Understated elegance and beauty is what we had in mind for the overall style,” the couple explains. The black and gold colour scheme matched perfectly with the glamour of the chandeliers and lanterns that decorated the space, while white and peach flower arrangements added romance to the decor.
The day was full of amazing moments. “Guests couldn’t stop talking about how our dog walked down the aisle and signed a pretend marriage license!” Kristina says.
But one of the couple’s favourite moments from the day was the quiet moment shared between the two of them. “The first look was a moment in the busy wedding day where we had an opportunity to just pause and take it all in,” Kristina says. “We were able to just enjoy each other for a brief moment and to see the day we had been planning for months become a reality.”
