Vaughan was away visiting family in Nova Scotia and Alysha was at a family’s house near Toronto. Turned out they lived two blocks away from each other. The Ceremony | Simple, elegant and quick was how Vaughan and Alysha wanted their intimate outdoor ceremony. White draping was hung from a large tree to frame the altar, meanwhile wine barrels topped with flowers decorated the start of the aisle. To keep things personal, the couple wrote their own vows and exited down the aisle to DJ Khaled’s “All I Do Is Win” to kick off the start of a great party. The Reception | For the reception, Vaughan and Alysha wanted guests to have a memorable experience that included amazing food, drinks and lots of laughter. Cold vodka shots were taken while chanting “Sto Lat!” (Polish for cheers) to honour the groom’s Polish heritage, and plenty of bubbles were included in the theme to honour the bride’s Italian heritage. Several members of the bridal party shared hilarious stories for the speeches. es. ELEGANT EDDING.CA 75
