Danika and Nick's Gatsby garden party-themed wedding was inspired by the brides elegant dress - with the men wearing three-piece suits, glam decor throughout, and coupled with a laid-back  atmosphere complete with lawn games, a tent reception, wild flowers, and the ocean as background.

Love Story

We met on the first day of university. We lived in the same residence and had mutual friends. We didn't get along at first, but then we became friends. Two days before the first day of second year, we chatted at a party and went on our first date shortly after.    

Proposal

Nick surprised me with a plane ride over Toronto, pointing out our favourite spots, when he proposed. He thenhad a wonderful meal planned and beautiful hotel room for the weekend. Since we have been living together for so long, he really went out of his way to make this occasion as romantic as possible.  

Wedding Theme / Inspiration

Inspired by my dress, we chose the theme of a Gatsby Garden Party. The men wore three-piece suits, my dress and the reception decorations were very glam, while the atmosphere was laid back with lawn games, a tent reception, wild flowers, and the ocean as background.
