Real Weddings 2013: a pink-infused party at the Gardiner Museum
Location: Trinity Chapel and the Gardiner Museum | Guests: 96 | Date: June 8, 2013
Lindsay Pringle, 30, suspected her boyfriend Tim Gordon, 30, was going to propose during a quick trip to Niagara-on-the-Lake in late March. “We had a perfect day: a perfect bike ride, a perfect dinner. But then it never happened,” says Lindsay, an accessories designer. Once she had given up and started getting ready for bed, Tim, who works in regulatory compliance for BMO, pulled out his guitar. “I performed a song that I wrote,” he says. “The last lines were the proposal.” For their wedding, the pair considered a few rural venues but ultimately settled on the gothic drama of U of T’s Trinity College Chapel, around the corner from their home. After the ceremony, a traditional Scottish pipe led the cheering and clapping guests across the street to Gardiner Museum. To bring a contemporary and classic feel to the reception, Lindsay opted for a neutral palette, but couldn’t resist a few pops of bright pink in the decor, candy table and cocktails. Tim also paired his suit with bright, patterned socks (his signature) and picked out a pink bowtie—a choice Lindsay insists was all his own.
