The colour scheme was shades of coral and guests were asked to incorporate the colour into their apparel, so that everyone felt as if they were a part of the wedding party. Florals were an abundance of coral and white orchids. Guests enjoyed a Jamaican themed dinner and were treated to live music and other performances. Everyone danced the night away poolside at the beautiful private villa.  It was an absolute pleasure to have planned this incredible day.

MainAbout Michelle & Tony
Occupations: Associate Producer // Professional Athlete
How they met: They first “dated” in 8th grade & saw ‘The Incredibles’ in theater; stayed friends throughout high school, but didn’t start dating again until Michelle was in her third year at Ryerson University & Tony was in his second year at Vanderbilt University.
What attracted him to her: Her smile
What attracted her to him: His fun-loving personality
What was the best advice you received as a bride/groom? Michelle: Don’t sweat the small stuff (type A) & remember the day is about you and Tony as a couple. (Our goal was to make the wedding actually feel like us). Tony: She’s always right.

1 2 3 4 5 7 8 1011Engagement story: So, it’s December 2015. I’m heading home for the holidays plus the show I was working on at the time had just wrapped for the season to start up again in February. I planned on staying in Nashville for the majority of that time with Tony and my family with the exception of a trip to Tulum, Mexico with two girlfriends from Toronto to get scuba dive certified. Well, as I’m at Pearson Airport, I’m sent to secondary questioning at the U.S. border and detained for four hours then basically blocked from the U.S. due to the one immigration officer’s opinion that I was planning on moving back to the U.S. and working illegally. Cue the disbelief (as I’d grown up in the U.S. from age 4-18) and waterworks. Tony came up to spend New Year’s with me since I was pretty devastated at that point. My friend, Julianne, was hosting an intimate dinner for eight of us and was having a NYE party afterward. At that point, Julianne had just broken up with her longtime boyfriend, I had just been blocked from entering the U.S., and on top of that, one of Tony’s childhood best friends had just died in a car accident. Needless to say, December had been a really tough month. So when we were seated for dinner, I suggested everyone go around the table and say something they were thankful for about 2015 and what they were looking forward to in 2016. (Basically, I unknowingly set Tony up for his impromptu proposal – he told me after I’m way too “curious” so anything he would have prepped & planned in Toronto, I would have suspected. He’s also right.) Next thing you know, Tony’s up and talking about his year, and BAM. He was on one knee, I was crying, pretty sure I briefly blacked out from surprise, and the rest is history!

12 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 2123The Wedding Day
Wedding date: November 9, 2017
Number of guests: 130
Wedding colours: Charcoal gray, blush pinks, neutrals
Her most memorable moment: Walking down the aisle towards Tony
His most memorable moment: First look
Advice to others: Things are going to happen, it’s inevitable something might go wrong or sh*t could hit the fan. Just be willing to roll with the punches & most importantly enjoy the big day! You’ve worked so hard for it and it’s celebrating your love as a couple, which is pretty awesome.
Favourite wedding detail: The aqueduct venue was incredible & we really loved our tented reception with lights.

33 24 25 26 27 28 30 31 32Most unexpected moment: We had asked our best friends, Alexa & Jack, that were in our bridal party to emcee the wedding reception. They had a hilarious intro/skit going over the “rules” of the wedding that were modeled after a flight attendant’s speech on an airplane. It was really well done & so funny!
Most romantic moment: Reading our own vows at the altar & our newlywed session right after the ceremony
Did you include any traditions in your wedding? Michelle wore gold brought over from her Chinese family for good luck
Honeymoon: We had a “housemoon” instead since we closed on a house 5 days after getting back from Jamaica! We’re planning on a one year anniversary trip to Italy next off season.
The day in three words: Magical, unforgettable, perfect (& insanely fun! – if we could have more than three)

34 35 35-b 36 37 38 39 41 42 43 44454647Wedding Details
Ceremony location: Aqueduct in Montego Bay
Reception location:  Aqueduct in Montego Bay
Why did you choose this location for your wedding?  Initially, we were planning on having our wedding in Nashville and had a venue booked. Once we realized how many people would be on our guest list, Tony wanted to look into a destination wedding. I was on the fence since I grew up going to the lake and had no interest in a beach-y style destination wedding. I saw a photo of the aqueduct ruins in Montego Bay on Pinterest and did some research to find out where it was. Once I saw it was off the beach but overlooking the water and how stunning it was, I agreed to destination!
Bride’s gown: Wtoo by Watters
Bride’s shoes: Vince Camuto
Groom’s outfit:  Custom 3-piece suit by Elevee (company in California)
Type of rings: My wedding band is a custom made eternity band, Tony has a black & silver tungsten band (mainly wears his Qalo)
Jewellery: I wore earrings my sisters gave me on the day of that were Swarovski with pearls & crystals then just simple 24karat gold bracelets from my Chinese family. Tony wore his cross necklace and his Breitling watch.
Bridesmaids dresses: I told the girls they could wear any dress they wanted as long as it fit the color scheme (blushes, soft pinks, neutrals, dusty rose, etc.) & had some sort of embellishment whether it was beading or a rhinestone belt, etc. to tie them all in together
Groomsmen attire: Our groomsmen wore grey suits they purchased from Men’s Wearhouse (can’t remember the brand, but I can call if needed, just let me know.)

49 50 51 52 53 54 55 565758Wedding song: Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You by Lauryn Hill
Favours: We brought approx. 65 pounds of candy for our candy bar with take home bags.
Music: DJ (*Tony would like it to be known that he created a bomb playlist)
Flowers:  Tai Flora
Photographer: Madi Flournoy Henderson
Videographer: Katherine Keene with Wild & Free Films
Hair: Resort salon
Makeup: Resort salon
Catering: Hilton Rose Hall

59 60 61 62 63 64 66 67 69Fun Stuff
Astrological signs (hers) and (his):  Gemini & Scorpio
What was old? My engagement ring diamond
What was new?  My dress
What was borrowed? My little clutch for the day
What was blue?  My underwear
What did you put in gift bags?  We had welcome bags that included custom embroidered Adidas hats, sunscreen, Advil, and a personalized deck of cards (along with the itinerary for the week)
Is there anything else that helps tell the story of the day?  The week before we got married, Tony’s team – the Houston Astros – won the World Series! So it added to how fun & how much of a celebration the week/day was.

70 71 72 73 74 76 77 78 79 8081Tell us about your experience working with LUXE: LUXE was one of the best decisions I made when it came to planning our wedding. Organizing 130 people’s reservations was not easy, but luckily Ashley was able to help me with that – including all the last minute changes our guests threw at her! In terms of the planning, Alexandra was above and beyond what I could have ever hoped for. She had ideas that I never would have thought of, she had already worked with the vendors in Jamaica, and she really helped pull our vision of the day all together in such a beautiful way. Additionally, we had a bit of a bumpy welcome & introduction to the wedding coordinator once we got to the resort in Jamaica. Thankfully, Alexandra & Meghan joined us down there a couple days later and totally took care of any concerns we had and made us completely comfortable. It was thanks to them and their hard work that Tony and I could truly enjoy a stress-free wedding day! Everyone we have spoken with since said it was hands down one of the most fun weddings they’ve ever been to and that’s largely in part to Luxe. Our wedding was an absolute dream that we both wish we could re-live over and over again!
