Ok, I'll admit it. I've had wedding photos sitting on my hard-drive for a week now. They are lovely and pretty and make me oh-so-happy when I look at them, but the task of going through them to do a proper wedding post seems a little too daunting at the moment.
So here's the plan, over the next few Fridays I'll post my favourites here on the blog along with some charming details about our wedding.
The venue and the pies!
As many of you know, Big Chuck and I got married at Toronto City Hall in a civil ceremony in front of our families. After the ceremony we headed down to Queen Street East to my friend Rob's wonderfully charming café, F'Coffee. Rob was such a dream to work with and the space was beautiful (I'll dedicate a post to his great place, with photos, in the coming weeks), just think exposed brick, beautiful lighting, old wood floors and a huge back patio. I know, heaven in the middle of the city. If anyone is looking for a great place to have a party, let me know and I'll pass along his details.
Rob's café also lent itself perfectly to our pies instead of wedding cake idea. We displayed them on cake stands in the front window of the café and they looked so sweet (pun intended!). Not only did we serve Ontario Sour Cherry Pie, but we also had Niagara Peach, B.C. Raspberry, Ambrosia, Strawberry Rhubarb and Wild Blueberry pie all courtesy of the most delicious pie shop in Toronto, Wanda's Pie in the Sky. We had six pies! Everyone loved them and and I thought they were the perfect finishing touch to what was a truly wonderful evening.
I'd also like to thank our wonderful photographer from 280dg, Rob Bava. He was a dream to work with as well and managed to capture the feel of our wedding perfectly. Rob was our hero, taking the job only 3 days before the wedding when I changed my mind about not having a photographer (what was wrong with me?).
I hope you enjoyed this little peek into our wedding!
Have a wonderful weekend!
