Hey Everyone! I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. It's a rainy Sunday here in Toronto and I'm taking full advantage by hibernating inside :) I am finally able to announce the venue for our wedding since we finally signed the contract and are all set to go! We are both super excited since we'll be getting married next winter in front of a fireplace at .... HART HOUSE (at the the University of Toronto)!!!
As I mentioned earlier, the fiance and I met when we were both students at UofT. We spent a lot of time together on campus and both have many memories of the times we spent at Hart House (both together and separately). When we visited the venue we knew almost immediately that it would be where we would get married. It was pretty funny because I had basically decided that Balzac's would be perfect and didn't want to go for our tour of Hart House. That all changed when I realized that the room we would get married in had two fireplaces and is basically perfect for a winter/xmas wedding. I love xmas and think that there is something really romantic and magical about winter. I can't wait to be photographed in front of the gothic style-buildings on the UofT campus. I'm picturing a candlelight dinner and hot chocolate! I'll definitely be doing a post soon about my inspiration and vision for the wedding.
|Don't worry, we won't be using these ugly floppy chairs lol!|
We went back and forth on our decision for a few weeks but this had nothing to do with the venue and was more about finances and budget than anything else. We are both happy with our decision and feel like a huge weight has been lifted now that we have a venue and a photographer! Not bad given the wedding is still over a year away :) I am excited to move forward with the planning and it all feels so much more real now that we have a date!
