Marina & Luke
Together since Grade 12, this bride and groom had to scale their wedding back from 200 guests to just 50. This left them with a personal, intimate celebration that guests will remember as a time to finally celebrate, post-pandemic.
The best part: It’s tough to nail down the best part of a wedding day. Just ask Luke. “To be honest, the whole day was my favouite part,” he says. “The whole weekend together with family and friends, it was everything.”
Details, details: With such gorgeous décor, choosing a favourite is also difficult. “I would have to say the reception tablescape florals and design was my favourite. It blew me away. It was pure magic,” says Marina.
Making memories: “We think our guests will remember the venue and intimate feeling of our wedding as it was so different from the weddings we are used to,” says Marina. “Everyone had time to enjoy themselves as many guests were staying for the weekend, which gave them the opportunity to relax and spend time catching up with everyone.”
The feels: Marina says the ceremony was amazing. “This was the first time seeing everyone gathered together in over a year and half due to the pandemic. I had never felt so full of love and happiness in one single moment.”
Advice from the couple: “Enjoy every bit of planning together that you can – it’s half the fun!”
