Things began with stylish elegance at the Hotel Le Soleil, right downtown. Up on the 11th floor of this sumptuous hotel we met up with the Bernadette and Robin who were both calm and relaxed. I am sure for them knowing that things couldn’t be more right (and the day well planned) they were totally at ease….and laughing as usual. We spent some time in the hotel with its European decor and Louis XVI style furniture creating some great images in a style that worked well with the classic elegance of our location.
Despite a dark and rainy evening, we went outside to take advantage of what must be the city’s finest examples of Art Deco, the Marine Building. We spent just a few minutes near the entrance, covered from the rain before hopping in a cab to The Alibi Room.
The atmosphere in The Alibi Room was warm and cozy where Bernadette and Robin entered to see 80 of their closest family and friends cheering and welcoming them. The relaxed ceremony was perfect for the evening- The Alibi Room making for the perfect backdrop for this urban couple. After the ceremony the guests mingled in the candle lit room, before heading downstairs for a few quick family photos and then on to a tasty dinner.
What a great night! With the cold rainy weather outside and the restaurant awash in candles, it was an evening of warmth among good company to celebrate this really great couple.
And what about the cookies? Well, the common myth of how these two met was officially laid to rest that evening. As far as some guests knew, the story of how these two met was at a coffee shop, where they both simultaneously ordered the last cookie and had to discuss who would be awarded the last tasty treat. A very nice story, but it was just a story. The real story of how they met was told that night, to set the record straight during one of the loving toasts by a friend, a story of what happened that makes perfect sense for this professional young urban couple: they met at a place Where Singles Click ;-)
To celebrate the great cookie myth, Bernadette and Robin gave all of their guests what were quite possibly the most delectable chocolate chip cookies to have ever been baked! Yum!
Great work you two on a fantastic evening and congratulations on your marriage, a marriage of two people who are so wonderful together. We feel like it was a real privilege to be involved so closely in your wedding and being able to get to know you both so well.
All the best,
steff and justin
