Ashley Sansone and Danny DeCicco
The wedding venue: Both the bride and groom fell in love with Hotel X. The bridal suite has a spectacular view of Toronto’s skyline, including the CN Tower, while the groom’s suite was outfitted with TVs and pool tables. Another favourite? The food, catered by byPeterandPauls.com.
Special moments: Some of the stand-out moments included the bride’s 5-month-old nephew entering the hall in a remote-controlled Lamborghini, the bride’s father singing an Italian song before the father/daughter dance, and the bride’s friend Laura Cavacece singing Faith Hill’s “There You’ll Be”. Plus, Danny’s family surprised the couple by travelling all the way from Italy to attend.
Wedding planning advice: Ashley says, “Enjoy every minute of your wedding day because it goes by very fast. But more importantly do not stress over the little things – everything will work out and if it doesn’t, you and only you will know.”
Spreading the love: So what was the best part? “The best part of our wedding were the friends and family who attended,” says Ashley. “The wedding was so much fun, and filled with so much love and support. We couldn’t have asked for a better day to be shared with the best people.”
