John was raised in Hong Kong, that’s the life he knows. Cheryl was looking for an adventure and headed over to work there for a year…. to her mother’s dismay, Cheryl still lives in Hong Kong, four years later.
She has found her adventure with John.
When John proposed to Cheryl he told her they were going to the Four Seasons in Hong Kong for dinner with his co-workers. They arrived at the hotel and used a room key to access the elevator, not clueing into the fact that dinner quests don’t require a room key, she followed him to a room in the hotel.
When they entered the room, she noticed the view, the flowers, the toiletrees he had lovingly packed up for her along with an overnight bag. Still not clueing in as John began telling her how thankful he was for her and how much he loved her. It wasn’t until he got down on his knee that it hit Cheryl: this was it. He was asking her to spend her life with him. After saying yes, John pulled out the laptop and had her family on the other end waiting via Skype to hear the news.
John and Cheryl decided to make their wedding destination Ancaster, Ontario, Canada, where Cheryl was raised and her family resides. They scheduled the wedding around the changing autumn colours in the trees to delight their guests, most of which travelled from Hong Kong.
They found the perfect venue. The Tamahaac Club in Ancaster, a private Social Club, surrounded by Carolinian Forest. The outdoor ceremony overlooked the city and the guests enjoyed games and hors d’oeuvres on the lawn, while being serenaded by a harpist and cellist before entering the club.
With fall inspired decor, inclusive of hot apple cider and an entirely local, seasonal menu, the day could not have been more perfect.
