A day of celebration and love was the perfect setting for Nancy and Mike to say “I do” in Etobicoke, Ontario surrounded by 135 of their closest family and friends.
Mike and Nancy first met nearly eight years ago when Nancy was invited to a small party at Mike’s house. They became online friends. Even though they lost touch over the years, about 3 years ago Mike sent Nancy a friend request on Facebook. They later realized they were both single, and decided to meet for dinner after work and “catch up.” Shortly after, they were a couple.
After dating for 9 months, Nancy knew a proposal was coming up. The couple had looked at rings and Nancy knew Mike had spoken to a jeweller, but she didn’t realize he had picked the ring. One Saturday morning in November, Mike suggested that they go to Niagara Falls for the weekend. When the two arrived at their hotel Mike was standing at the window and asked Nancy to join him to look at the beautiful view. Mike told Nancy how much he loved her and that he was excited for their future together. He reached behind him for the ring box on the desk, got down on one knee, and asked Nancy to marry him.
“My favourite wedding moment was when Mike and I were standing at the top of the steps in the church, facing our family and friends, and we were presented as Mr. and Mrs. Mike and Nancy Starcevic,” says Nancy. The bride and groom both recall how proud they felt while holding hands in front of their guests at that moment.
The couple’s favourite wedding details included their reception decor which gave their wedding that classic elegance feel. “Creations Decor did a beautiful job with the flowers and decorating the hall, but I especially loved my bouquet, a mix of white calla lilies and white roses, with a bling wrap holding it all together,” says Nancy.
