A BIG Thank You!

I just wanted to thank everyone who was able to celebrate the best day of our lives with us and that includes the ones who were there in spirit. We couldn’t have asked for a better day. Truly a dream come true. I also wanted to thank everyone for all the wonderful wedding gifts and donations. For those of you who gave us money it has all been donated to our ChicagoLovesPits organization. That is a gift that will keep on giving so thank you so much.

This is just a quick and general thank you to all our guests but I am working on a more personal thank you that will be sent out shortly now that we are settling back into our Chicago home.

I hope you all enjoyed yourselves as much as we did and keep sharing your stories and pictures with us. We love it all:)



Our Chicago Engagement Party

 Yes we were lucky enough to have two engagement parties:) I guess thats what happens when you live in two different countries through out the year. Our Chicago family, which consists of our friends, our home away from home, held us a surprise party last summer right before we went back to Canada. Well it was some what of a surprise:) As it was being planned the boys ended their run at Lord Stanley so it was time to pack up and head out for the summer. Since they didn’t know when we would leave the beans had to be spilled. Spilt or not we were surprised and very excited. We had dinner downstairs at Prosecco in the wine cellar with a room all to ourselves. It was beautiful! After dinner we headed out for some drinks and was surprised to be joined by a few more of our friends. It was a great night and we couldn’t thank you all enough for putting that together for us.

We love you guys xox





The Search For The Perfect Dress Begins

The wedding dress is obviously one of the most important aspects of your wedding, so I took the liberty to find most of the top designers and link you to their websites.

I figured if you find a designer you like, we can search stores that carry their line.

Searching for..

Venues between Ottawa and Peterborough. Checked out Gananoque and Kingston. Not much there. The only thing that might be nice would be a cruise ship in Kingston that takes you around the 1000 Islands. Click HERE.

Found two sites that gives a list of wedding venues for Southern Ontario. Click HERE and HERE.
