That morning, I quickly learned that Cindy’s father is practically a comedian: he is filled with so much fun and is such a joker. Later, I discovered that Matthew’s father has quite the sense of humour too! Throughout the day, it was really refreshing to see and hear how affectionate both Cindy and Matthew’s parents are to their children. Loved that!
We needed some space to showcase Cindy’s gorgeous, flowing, white dress, so we started the morning off with moving around some furniture. That early morning sweaty workout totally paid off! Wedding dresses that feature sheer lace overlays and stunning details on the back are very popular this year. It’s elegant and timeless: a trend that I’m a huge fan of :)
We were able to access Casa Loma a few minutes before it opened to the public, so thankfully, we were able to enjoy utilizing some the castle and the gardens for photographs before it filled up with tourists! It’s too bad that we’re only allowed to utilize a few specific interior rooms as there are so many other photogenic spaces around such an expansive and historic estate. Regardless, the Conservatory was a beautiful sunlit venue for their ceremony. And I’m glad that “Bear” got to join in on the celebration too (since he’s been a part of their relationship from the beginning)!
As a fellow “foodie”, Cindy was super excited telling me about their amazing wedding cake! They had it custom made with an image from one of their favourite manga (Japanese comics) that takes place in a futuristic world and time modelled after Venice, Italy. Plus, the gold gilt detail on the cake was unbelievable!
Congratulations, Cindy and Matthew! Now, I MustEatMore! ;)
