Wedding Party Luncheon

We could not have chosen a more auspicious day to have a wedding party kick-off luncheon. Not only was it a gorgeous (albeit windy) day, but it was also the last day and therefore the closing ceremonies of the 2010 Vancouver Olympic games. But more importantly it was the day of the legendary Gold Medal Hockey game between the most epic of rivals, Canada and the US.  Yay Team Canada!!

We are ever gracious for our wonderful host host – Don Hunter – who shared his home and put out a fantastic spread of fine cheeses, pasta salad, bocconcini and tomato salad, fresh deli sandwiches and baked Mediterranean salmon… YUM!

The wedding party got a chance to meet and mingle, share some stories and huddle about the events leading up to the wedding; bridal shower, Mayday! Honeymoon charity event on May 1st, and the ever popular bachelor party!!

For those that were able to ‘stick’ around, we watched as Canada lit the country on fire with a sudden death overtime goal that echoed as cheers and elated screaming from the balconies and rooftops in the area of Yonge & Eglinton. In that moment, whether you are a hockey, nay sports fan, or not, you didn’t need facebook, the internet or any technology to feel connected – all you needed to do was poke your head out the door and yell “WOO-HOO!” and immediately you could almost put your arms over the should of every other Canadian.

We got a lot of planning and great ideas flowing!!  Good Times!
