Julia and Jay Get Married

September 11, 2012 § 3 Comments

Saturday September 8 was the best day of the summer. Possibly the best day of the year. Definitely the best day of Julia and Jay’s lives. It was the day these two lovely, brilliant, loving people got married.

The day started out with hair and makeup at the bridal suite at the Ivy Hotel.

Us ladies were soon joined by Rick the super wedding photographer.

After much primping, we were finally ready! But first, some shots of Julia in her dress before we leave for the church.

The most beautiful bride I’ve ever seen? Yes.

The ceremony and reception were both held at the Berkeley Church. The ceremony was beautiful. Obviously there are no photos from me (yet!) as I was lucky enough to stand up for Julia. The best part? When Julia started to get choked up saying her vows. Cathy, the maid-of-honour, was ready with a tissue for Julia, but Jay took out his handkerchief and gently dabbed away her tears. That’s the moment we all lost it and succumbed to our tears of joy for these sweeties.

After the ceremony, the wedding party had a little photo shoot then got to relax and mingle in the courtyard with the guests. It was so fun to see all of my friends all dressed up!

After a short while, we all headed back into the venue for the reception. After the bride, groom, and wedding party were announced, we sat down to dinner. Following dinner, Julia and Jay had surprises for each other.

Jay serenaded Julia with a Johnny Horton love song and Julia played Jay a surprise video she made for him. Did I mention this is a talented couple?

Nick didn’t get to sit with me since I was at the head table, but his seat was right behind mine at a table full of friends. I’m so lucky!

Our place cards were written on the back of Tattly temporary tattoos! Heart badges that read “loved”.

Paul did a great job as MC! He even got us to make barnyard animal noises between toasts.

We all had fun playing in the photo booth.

Photo booth!

Before long, the entire wedding turned into a giant dance party.

Oh look, it’s the best man in a beaver hat.

I think Julia had a good time.

All in all, a fantastic day. I was so happy to be part of the wedding, even though I no longer live in Toronto. Can I tell you how hard it was to leave the wedding that night, surrounded by some of my best friends in the world? Very hard! What wonderful people I have in Canada.

Congratulations again, Julia and Jay! Enjoy your honeymoon in Belize and your first week of married life! xo
