Christine and David met the only place a video game designer and Toronto Bay Street lawyer with very different interests could meet – eHarmony!
David and Christine couldn’t have more different taste in movies. David likes cartoons and Christine enjoys crime dramas. Their taste in music, however, is similar. They both love acoustic pieces. When David picked up a guitar to teach himself simple songs, the Disney classic “A Whole New World” was at the top of his list to learn. He humbly and sweetly proposed to Christine after strumming his guitar and singing along to the classic Disney song on a Saturday morning over coffee in their Toronto condo.
For this couple, it was hard to choose a top moment of their big day because everything was so perfect, so here are the couple’s top three favourite moments. Firstly, for Christine, walking into the chapel and linking arms with her dad and realizing how much love and support surrounded them in the small chapel, made up of their closest family and friends.
Secondly, there was the moment alone that David and Christine took after dinner as the sun was starting to set and the couple stole a moment to walk to the far end of the grounds together. “It felt great to be able to take a quiet moment together and truly appreciate that we had just become husband and wife,” says the bride.
Lastly, the couple really enjoyed their first look prior to the ceremony. Christine remembers this big feeling of calmness come over her the moment she saw David standing there under the trees waiting for her to tap him on the shoulder.
Now as for the couple’s favourite wedding details, that’s an easy decision to pick. “Our flowers! From the centrepieces, bouquets, floral hedge, garland, floral chandelier and ivy hanging on the wooden beams – our florist perfectly brought our floral vision to life,” says the bride. “We wanted the flowers to compliment the already picturesque grounds at the museum, to look as though they had been handpicked from the garden and perfectly arranged. Everything about the flowers was perfect and really contributed to the feeling of an elegant whimsical garden party.”
