That's why I'm extremely thankful for Emanuele's friend, who happens to be a wedding planner, who can basically just suggest something and all I have to do is nod. I'm also very thankful for my sister who is the complete opposite and loves all this event planning stuff. She's so detail oriented and on top of her game. So kudos to her for making my Toronto reception happen. Cause if it were up to me, we'd probably be celebrating it at a burger joint.
Don't get me wrong. I'm so excited to marry the best guy I've ever known. I'm excited to start our lives as husband and wife and I really do respect and appreciate the meaning of marriage. I just don't like all the fluffy stuff around weddings. All I care about is celebrating our big day with the people we love. Some of the advantages about doing it here? The food is ridiculously good in Italy, obviously. Also, where we live, people don't do a lot of the unnecessary stuff people do back home (ie. center piece games, speeches, rehearsed dances) which makes me very relieved.....and the best part for me, are the amazing backdrops to choose from. Since we booked our venue, I'll let the visuals speak for themselves.
