Real Wedding: It's All About the Guests

It's the long weekend and I finally had time to pick which gorgeous pics from Christina and Tom's wedding to post. The wedding took place at the Scarboro Golf Club in Toronto, featuring shades of fresh spring greens accented with tones of chocolate. Christina honoured both her Chinese culture and her husband's Korean culture by wearing traditional dresses in addition to her white gown. Thanks to our 'faithful' reader Christina for sharing your wedding with us!!

Her Wedding in Her Own Words:
Our wedding was the perfect extension of the dinner parties we host in our 648sq ft condo. Whenever we have dinner parties, we always obsess over little things we think our guests would appreciate, so we figured, why should our wedding be different? For my husband and I, the overriding theme was a simple dinner party...for 140 of our closest family and friends. Our venue was perfect for it. It was old and intimate, but large enough for us to have the ceremony, cocktails and reception all at one location. Smaller single-purpose rooms made the difference. The cocktail in the main sitting area equipped with a baby grand, the formality of dinner in the main dining room, and a separate ballroom for the dance set the tone for each stage of the day. A few little things we hoped they enjoyed: Guest boutonni√®res to honour everyone who came to celebrate; homemade jars of apple wine jelly favours that also doubled as table seating cards; four rounds of toasting the tables to make sure everyone’s glass was always full; a bride-and-groom speech that kicked off the reception so that all the formal stuff was out of the way and our guests were relaxed right when the first course was served.
