The Couple: Genevieve & Daniel

In the summer of 2014, Daniel stepped into the pizzeria where Genevieve had been working since high school. “I instantly had a crush on him,” she recalls. She waited on his table that day, and he began visiting more frequently. They found common ground and she learned he lived close by. Daniel asked Genevieve on a date, and they’ve been together ever since.

 

THE PROPOSAL

The bride shared a deep bond with her late grandfather, who had been battling cancer since 2019. He held a special place in both Genevieve’s and Daniel’s hearts, as Daniel had spent years working at her grandfather’s brokerage. When it was time for Daniel to pop the question, he recognized the significance of involving Genevieve’s grandparents in this pivotal moment.

So, on a sunny afternoon during a visit to her grandparents’ backyard, Daniel dropped to one knee and asked for Genevieve’s hand in marriage.

In September 2020, at the couple’s engagement party, Genevieve’s grandfather was present, and they shared a touching “first dance” together.


THE GOWN

Genevieve wore a wedding gown by Monique Lhuillier purchased at White Toronto, where a private viewing of Genevieve wearing the ball gown was arranged so that her grandfather could see her in her wedding dress before he passed. “The owner, Andrea, is one of the most kind-hearted women I have ever come across — I will never forget what she did for my family,” remembers Genevieve.


THE RECEPTION

A black-tie cocktail hour and reception à la 1950s glamour took place at The Arlington Estate, which was transformed into a botanical garden dream by floral and event designers COCO by Covers Couture.


The couple’s sweetheart table sat on an elevated platform beneath a canopy of flowers and crystal chandeliers.


Genevieve and Daniel entered their reception accompanied by Van Morrison’s “Into the Mystic,” performed by a live band. Genevieve’s Dad also wowed guests with a singing performance.

“It looked like a concert, and people pulled out their phone lights and lighters to cheer him on,” shares the bride. The non-stop entertainment continued outdoors with a fireworks display before the dessert table opened. “Most people told us we wouldn’t enjoy our wedding but it was quite the opposite. We had a blast.”
