Real Weddings



The perfect spot for Andrea and Aaron’s vintage-inspired wedding was the rustic open space of her parents’ property. The altar, placed in a clearing reached by a winding path overlooking a small stream, had the forest as a backdrop and wooden benches for the 200 guests to sit on – handmade by her father and brother. Elements of the fall season were evident throughout the ceremony with leaves falling like natural confetti. Lawn games, giant chess, horseshoes and “The Andrea & Aaron Wedding Invitational ” – a 3-hole mini-golf course created by Andrea’s father – surrounded the reception that took place in a clear-top tent outdoors. After the sunset, spotlights illuminated the canopy of trees above. Tables were numbered by math equations, which needed to be solved in order for guests to access the buffet, and the “cake” consisted of three tiers of donuts (in honour of their first date at Tim Horton’s) made by Paulette’s Original Donuts. A candle-lit path led guests to a large leaf-covered clearing in the woods, encircled with lights, where everyone took part in an Irish Ceili dance. Find this wedding in the June 2015 issue of Toronto’s Elegant Wedding Magazine.
