Last Minute Venue Swap

From the Bride:We had a number of things suddenly change during the planning process that made us have to re-adjust our desired theme and overall look & feel. One of those (not so minor) things was having the restaurant the reception was scheduled to be in close down a few months before the date.

We had chosen the particular restaurant because it had a very soft, warm, and romantic feel to it, which we both loved. We moved the reception to the Lobby Bar in the Thompson hotel, and were thrilled with the results, but it meant having to modify our romantic theme to a more modern venue.

Traditions Aren't A Must

We forewent most traditions – no cake, no garter/bouquet toss, and only one person each in our wedding party – because we felt they just weren’t us. Instead, we opted for quirky and personal vows and to show off our love of cats with hand painted gold cat nametags. We also gave our guests mini packages of our favorite candy brought home from Germany in my suitcase as favors.

Expect and Plan for Delays

From the Groom:The only thing I would recommend to those about to get married is book your photographer for as long as possible in advance. We had our incredible photographer booked for several hours and we still ended up needing to keep her for additional time as the timeline got a little delayed, as can often happen with weddings.
