@mzlouis2b: Wow, I LOVE those bouts!!! They seriously look like they’re done with a thin leaf, not cord. Those are AMAZING. I think some of my favourite bouts ever. I’m also very intrigued about your cake topper. Can you break your rule and post it?? Oh hang on, you didn’t post a photo of the two of you!!

So here we are:

Okay, my favourite things:

One: This tree my friends decorated for me. It turned out better than I expected! The tree itself a friend hauled out of the wood somewhere, it’s a corkscrew hazel. I bought the orchids and moss, which my girlfrieds wired on one by one. They put the votives I wrapped in lace around the bottom and it looked like a fairy land once it got darker. It was right behind our sweetheart table and I LOVED it.

Two, the silver teapots I collected at thrift shops. We used them for our centrepieces and our florist did such an amazing job filling them. They were so elegant and I love that each one was a little different.  My sister, mom and my mom’s neighbours helped me polish them all (40+ teapots and 60+ cream and sugar pots, plus candle stick holders!!!). It was awesome having everyone chip in and made it all the more meaningful 🙂

Three: The food. Our caterer was out of this world!!! (And he’s pretty cute too, LOL!) He used organic, local food (including the meat) that was in season. This was an heirloom tomato gazpacho with a lobster salad. Omg. My stomach is grumbling just thinking about it.

That was SO hard!!!!

@KoiKove: I am so jealous of your yay flags! They are so cute. I had planned to make some for our wedding but as the date approached, I said eff it! Wish I had followed through! Would have made for some adorable pictures.

@bakerella: I love everything about your wedding. But I’d love to see pics of that tree from when it got darker out. Do you have any?

Ok. Here’s mine. A pic of us and pics of my 3 favorite things from the wedding.

#1 – LOCATION. Getting married on the pier was the most fun ever.

#2 – Getting to ride the ferris wheel with my new husband right after the ceremony.

#3 – Getting serenaded by DH’s childhood buddies. (They do this at every friend’s wedding. They pic a song the day off, sit the bride down in the middle of the room, and sing to her. They chose MJ’s "The Way You Make Me Feel" for me. It was AWESOME.)

@bakerella: I LOVE those centerpieces! So creative!

This was really hard. I have so many favorites! I love the picture of my parents walking me down the aisle. And the picture of our officiant announcing us as husband and wife makes me so happy everytime I look at it. We both were so giddy throughout the entire ceremony.

@KoiKove: What a fun post! I love love LOVE your boutonnieres they are so different and beautiful.

@bakerella: Love that tree your friends made for you it’s beautiful! I wanted to do something like that for my escort cards but lost the will to do it a couple months before the wedding LOL. The escort cards just sat on a table 🙁 – boring yet functional.

@Theresa90405: I love your short dress it is so fun and you look beautiful in it!

Picture of us:

My favourite thing of all for the day was my pink crinoline peaking out from under my dress:

Our Toronto Maple Leaf themed garter toss. Mr. M dressed up in his hockey gear, TML jersey and got the garter while the old Hockey night in Canada theme song was playing. And as a surprise to him the garter was TML themed as well!

And finally our first look. This gorgeous park was where our ceremony was supposed to be but the rain forced us to use our back up plan. Luckily we still got our first look pictures done in the park despite the rain.
