It’s not every day a groom shares a little about his wedding. It’s also not every day that you marry the one you love.
Betsy and Henry exchanged vows here in Toronto at The Burroughes Building, a gloriously restored structure built in 1907 that was once a department store. Now, its lovely exposed brick walls, beam ceilings and airy spaces bear witness to heartfelt promises and celebrations.

How did you choose your gown?
“The first thing I looked into after I got engaged was my wedding gown, as I knew I would treasure that garment for the rest of my life. I tried on a dozen dresses from several boutique wedding gown shops in Toronto, but I couldn’t find the ‘perfect’ one – something was missing. Finally, I went to my appointment at Lea-Ann Belter. I was blown away by the variety of styles, superior quality and the best customer service (Ginny was beyond amazing!). After I learned that they can do practically any customizations I wished for, it was settled. The airy and elegant organza, the delicate lace and the unique design on spaghetti shoulder straps, when it all came together, I looked myself in the mirror and whispered ‘I am really getting married!’
FROM THE GROOM’S PERSPECTIVE:
Describe your wedding day in 5 words or less:
“Carpe Diem. No truer words.”
Three words that best describe Betsy:
“Perfect. To. Me.”
Any advice for future brides/grooms?
“The perfection and wonder of your wedding day lie within your hearts and minds – do not worry too much about things going according to plan. Enjoy that day like it’s your last and share your love as if you will live forever.”
Where did you go on your honeymoon?
“Spain (Madrid, Barcelona, Seville).”
