The Couple: Robyn and Francesco

Robyn and Francesco first crossed paths while working at a restaurant owned by Francesco’s family. As coworkers, the pair developed a friendship and eventually fell in love. Four years later, with a ring already purchased and burning a hole in his pocket, Francesco spent months discussing how he would pop the question with friends and family. Grand gestures aside, he ended up surprising Robyn one evening as she stood in front of the mirror, getting ready to go for dinner. He proposed on the spot, making it a completely unexpected and authentic moment. 

 


Robyn wore a gown by Pnina Tornai paired with a tiara by Eden Luxe. Francesco wore a dark green suit from ESCO Clothiers and a Hermes tie.

THE RECEPTION
The “Romantic Garden” floral and event design was inspired by the couple’s vision of bringing the outdoors, in and the atmosphere of European piazzas. With that in mind, Wild Theory Floral and Event Design Wild Theory Floral and Event Design has been serving the Greater Toronto Area since 1998... More | Message brought the vibe using towering green centrepieces of salal, Italian ruscus, and leather leaf sprinkled with soft blush-coloured roses and romantic twinkle lights. Being a foodie family meant that a decadent dinner menu was served along with late-night wood over pizza, wedding cake, and a large sweets table featuring croquembouche, macarons, mini cheesecakes, Sfogliatella, lemon balls, mini tiramisu, and much more. After dinner, the accordionist and a guitar player gave a 45-minute performance, getting everyone out of their seats and dancing to classic tarantella music. The family joined in with the band, playing the tambourine and maracas.

THE HONEYMOON
Fittingly, for a couple that fell in love at a restaurant, their honeymoon was entirely food-motivated. They flew to Bologna, rented a car, and traveled around the Emilia Romagna region of Italy, trying all the local cuisines and specialties before finishing their trip in Modena at Massimo Bottura’s world-famous restaurant,
Osteria Francescana.
