Jenny and Christian were married at Malaparte in downtown Toronto, Ontario, Canada on July 20. “Malaparte had everything we were looking for, but the venue’s location was key!” Jenny said. “It is located just two blocks from where we live, so we walked to our wedding.” The bride walked down the aisle wearing a sweetheart ball gown, accessorized with a jeweled sash, while the groom stood waiting, wearing a black suit, accessorized with a gray tie. Jenny’s favorite moment? “Standing at the altar and holding Christian’s hands, with everything else a blur but knowing that that moment was the beginning of our lives together,” she said. The reception followed inside the the 6th story of the TIFF Bell Lightbox with floor-to-ceiling cityscape views. Did you notice their ceremony was outside in an amphitheatre? Tables were decorated with tall floral centerpieces featuring yellow flowers, floating candles, and chewy lime sugar cookies at each place setting, which served as favors. “It was really important to us to highlight customs from my Chinese background,” Jenny said. “We had a tea ceremony, lion dance, and table-to-table toasting during dinner.” The cake was also a hit! It had two different flavors: passion fruit with fresh berries and salted caramel chocolate. Yum!

Aldrin and Mike were married at The Lighthouse at Chelsea Piers in New York City on February 16. “When we first arrived to the Lighthouse, it was exactly a year prior to our wedding day,” Aldrin said. “The sun filled the gorgeous venue, and the views of the Hudson were absolutely breathtaking. Mike and I had to book it!” The ceremony was officiated by the couple’s good friend, who also is a stand-up comedian. “Our guests kept complementing us on how different and personal it was,” he said. “We all laughed and cried — it was perfect.” They also placed three bottles of wine into a wooden box to open on their first, fifth, and tenth anniversaries to symbolize their unity. The reception started with their first dance to Beyonce’s “Love on Top.” “It was a great transition to what became a huge dance party,” Aldrin said. Tables were decorated with green hydrangea and pink orchid centerpieces, along with an navy blue embossed menu card at each setting. The newlyweds’ best advice? “Take a 15-minute breather in the middle of your reception – together and alone — to soak in the day,” he said.
