WEDDING | TARYN & ANDY

You know two people are madly in love when they're just as excited for what comes after their wedding as they are for the big day itself. Taryn and Andy confessed that as much as they were looking forward to their wedding they couldn't wait to just live life together after they tied the knot. And of course, they were eager to soak up some sunshine on their honeymoon in the Bahamas.

But I'm getting ahead of myself! On their wedding day, Taryn got ready in their beautifully decorated (and immaculately tidy!) home with her mom and bridesmaids, along with her two dachshunds, Lupo and Sully. After suiting up, Andy sat with his closest friends on the terrace at Burlington Golf and Country Club, overlooking Lake Ontario, waiting patiently for his bride to arrive.

Their outdoor ceremony was bright and cheerful, bathed in the bright light of the summer solstice. After they exchanged vows, they each held a key and turned them in unison to lock an engraved box that would stay sealed until a special anniversary. Such a cool tradition!

When their party began, they danced together gleefully as silver tinsel swirled around them. Their toasts were particularly memorable, as Taryn's sister "drafted" Andy into the family with the help of an amazing video with the comedic commentary, personalized messages and well wishes of many Canadian sportscasters, including Don Cherry and Ron Maclean. It was an evening filled with many laughs and so much love.

Taryn and Andy, I'm so very happy for you two. I've loved getting to know you, from our first conversations, to our shared love of dogs, to all the fun of your engagement session, to now designing your wedding album together. It's a privilege to know you and I can't wait to see what magic life brings you both.
