The summer in Toronto was pretty awful weather wise, but the sun was shining on July 12th! As you may know, Matt and I tied the knot in beautiful Utopia Ontario a small town outside of Barrie that was founded and established by Matt’s great greats. It was the perfect place to get married, full of significance and memories to the Smith family and now to mine also. We had a small-ish celebration that ended up being bigger than we had originally envisioned but the day couldn’t have been more wonderful! We had great sunny warm weather, great food, family and tons of laughter! Here are a few photos from our day:
It was a really fun celebration but the day flew by so fast! A word of advice to anyone getting married soon, take any help you can get! People want to help you and they will offer in sincerity. I am not so great at delegation and ended up so busy and more stressed than I needed to be on the day of. Also, I planned everything myself from start to finish so there was a lot to keep track of. If you can afford it, hire a day-of coordinator. I had some lovely folks helping organize on the big day but I would have preferred to have those guests relax instead of work. Still, the stress vanished right after the ceremony and the fun began! It was a lovely celebration and we couldn’t have asked for a more memorable wedding day.
