Featured Wedding: October 26, 2013Michaelle & Matt's Azuridge Estate Wedding

Posted by Blush Magazine Posted on August 29, 2014

It was a serendipitous encounter at Alloy restaurant in 2010 that brought Michaelle and Matt together. Smitten from the start, the two instantly felt a magical connection and started dating in 2011. They met, sparks flew—it’s truly as simple as that.

The Proposal

The fortuitous encounter was followed by a romantic proposal in 2012 on Matt’s birthday. The couple took a sunset walk at Fish Creek Park where Matt got down on one knee and asked Michaelle to give him the best birthday present ever—to be his wife.

The Big Day

The two planned an intimate and romantic celebration of love. The bride was escorted down the aisle by her son, while the groom was accompanied by his daughter down the aisle and had his son stand beside him as a groomsman. It was a meaningful and emotional ceremony neither of them will ever forget.

Following the ceremony was a whimsical reception. A Parisian-inspired sweets table complete with a cake topper from 1920s Paris (hand-painted by Matt) captured memories from the couple’s time together in Paris, while framed lines from the couple’s favourite songs, books and letters written to one another, on display throughout the venue, maintained the romantic atmosphere.

Favourite Moments

Michaelle: “Having my little guy walk me down the aisle, and give my hand to Matt’s. I was so nervous, and I know I was shaking. Matt just took my hands, looked into my eyes and whispered ‘I love you.’

Matt: ” My favorite moment of the day was the ceremony: first, watching Wesley walk Michaelle over the bridge then down the aisle. This being the first time I had seen the dress, and Michaelle looked absolutely stunning.”

Newlywed Advice

Keep it small and intimate and let your own joys drive you in planning. It’s easy to get swept away by the wants and desires of well-meaning friends and family, but at the end of the day, it’s your wedding, do it your way.”

Looking Forward to Most Now Being Married

As newlyweds, Michaelle and Matt look forward to facing life’s uncertainties together, goofing around and continuing to bring out the best in one another.

Featured Wedding: September 28, 2013Natalia & Mike's Enchanting Wedding

Posted by Blush Magazine Posted on August 28, 2014

The day Natalia planned to close her online account with Plenty of Fish, she received a message from Mike. She gave Mike a chance because of their mutual Polish heritage and after the first date, they both knew they’d found their match.

The Proposal

A few years later, Mike proposed in romantic fashion. He took Natalia to a dinner theatre and then surprised her with a room at the Fantasyland Hotel. Greeted by an abundance of candles, rose petals and photos of her and Mike scattered around room, Natalia was a little confused, but when she turned around it all made sense—Mike was on his knee holding the ring in one hand and his speech in the other. With overwhelming joy, Natalia said yes.

The Big Day

Emotions rose high on the big day, but a sense of calm washed over the two when they joined hands at the altar. The DIY décor added ample personal elements to the wedding and the enchanting atmosphere was dually representative of Natalia and Mike’s love. A special keepsake the couple will forever cherish is the high back bench from the reception. They opted to sit on a bench instead of two separate chairs to symbolize their unity. The bench now occupies space in their bedroom and serves as a memento from their first dinner as a married couple.

Favourite Moments

Natalia: “When I was walking down the aisle and seeing all of my friends and family and most importantly the most amazing man standing at the alter smiling at me. It was a moment I had always pictured when I was younger and I felt it was finally coming true.”

Mike:When she first walked up to me and I grabbed her hand.”
