Still on Cloud 9

Still on Cloud 9 1

We did it on July 15, so just 13 days ago... I'm still smiling from the memories. I was sooooooo relieved and thankful that our weather turned out well. In Toronto, it is so unpredictable, but it could not have been more perfect. Not too humid, light breeze, no rain in sight. I was watching the forecast like a hawk for 2 weeks leading up to it. I was so happy with every element of our ceremony, and surprised myself to find that I was calm, cool and collected throughout! Our reception was so fun. Instead of table numbers, we named our tables with TV shows that have iconic theme songs, and our MC told the guests that if they wanted us to kiss, they had to sing the theme song of the table they were at (and as incentive we offered a bottle of bubbly to the table we deemed the winners). We were unsure if people would play along, but they totally got into it and I think that really helped break the ice, and warm them up to have a good time. After dinner and speeches (and we only had 4 - the MoH, the Best Man, myself and my husband), we had our first dance (and my dress kept slipping a little when my arms went up so I just went with it and yanked it back up with a sheepish look on my face), and then my husband his groomsmen - who are lifelong friends who have had a "virtual" band together as they all live far apart - performed a song my husband wrote for me. Then we got the party started, and again, I was so very happy that the dance floor was hopping right until they kicked us out at 1 am. It was such a fun night, made all the more special that it was a family reunion after 2.5 years of pandemic. My only disappointment was that we lost 9 of our guests (15%) in the week leading up to the wedding due to covid or exposures to covid. But, we had 51 of our closest friends and family with us, and it was perfect!

I don't have my professional photos yet, but here are a few from attendees and my bridesmaid.
