The ceremony was held at the Mariposa Garden, where the magnificent Aurora Ensemble performed as a string quartet. Their cocktail hour was on the El Mar patio, and the quartet played a mix of pop and classic favorites. Our amazing wedding planner was Rebecca Gigandet who made sure the entire day went perfect for Katharine and Christian.
During dancing, our couple made special song dedications to guests and special groups of friends and family - fast ones, slow ones, and even outrageously fun ones. We also played the Canadian National Anthem for the arrival of the late night snack - Poutine!
