We love to do things a bit differently at LoversLand, and this amazing LL couple proved that adding a little shock value to your big day can result in pure magic!
"The best part of the wedding planning process was keeping the secret from everyone!" Heather and Michael tied the knot this past October, surprising friends and family who thought they were attending an engagement party!
Held at Bricco Kitchen and Wine Bar in Toronto, Heather and Michael felt at ease with all of the help they received from Bricco's staff. "We [also] fell in love with the space, modern white brick walls and a great layout with upper level."
"To announce the wedding, Michael and I gave a small toast (primarily Michael, as I was WAY too nervous). We talked about the different stages in our relationship...and then [shared] that it was actually happening ‘Here, tonight with all of you.’ Some family and friends thought that Michael, being the joker he is, was goofing around after a few drinks. Little did they know, we were serious. Once they saw the wedding officiant and my brother with the rings, everyone realized they were in for more than they bargained for."
"We were very lucky to work with such great professionals from day one! Almost everything (from finding the venue, to dress shopping to ordering the exquisite desserts) was such an easy process. Almost too easy of a process - we thought for sure something is going to go wrong. [But] nothing did!"
"It was honestly perfect and we would it all again, if we could!" Heather and Michael got down to business, planning their celebration in just five months. We applaud their organization and creativity!
The pair had the help of some pretty incredible vendors who are close the our hearts here at LoversLand!
Heather and pal Lisa Ho did all styling and decorating day-of.
"The day after our wedding we stayed in, enjoyed each others' company and kept it classy by ordering pizza. There was no way to top our wedding!"
Heather wore A la Robe's Juliette silk gown, paired with the Rue de Seine Grace Blouse and Jaclyn Jordan's Anne veil.
