( wedding: leah & matto)


we built this city.  we built a place for love and community.  down in the valley amongst red winged blackbirds, fox, rabbit, lily pads... we now wed. 

the brickworks has grown ever more wild, brimming with hope and promise.

i can't imagine a more meaningful place to tie a knot, to hold the hand of the one who compliments you, reflects for you, sees you for the beautiful person you are and who you continue to become year after passing year.

leah & matto are a generous gift to each other and to all of us.  they share a passion for the soil under our feet and the air we breath into our lungs... and they will actively champion for a rich, prosperous planet earth... for you, for us, for the children yet to be born.  

i thank them for caring so deeply, for creating a wedding celebration made with hands and hearts. the groomsmen made their own boutonnieres, the bouquets too, made at home, the pear butter made in boston while completing PHD's in environmental policy, hand written note cards given to guests as an invitation to open hearts and minds, to move through the gathering making new friends... hearts opening.

soma chocolate, the stop food community food centre, ontario wines, upcycled, recycled, borrowed... beautiful.

cocktails with tequila / lime / grapefruit / vanilla / tarragon + cucumber / lime / mint / pink peppercorns / gin / tonic.

family style dining.  dancing.  joy.

( Pre-wedding: leah & matto )

this saturday leah & matto will wed at the beautiful evergreen brickworks.  these two incredible people are wild crazy about each other... but also our planet (they are both working on their environmental policy phd's at MIT & Harvard... i am in awe).  as you can imagine their wedding celebration will embrace all things sustainable in the most wholehearted way.  their guests will dine on food prepared by The Stop, whose mission is "to increase access to healthy food in a manner that maintains dignity, builds health and community and challenges inequality." they've made homemade jam too.  blessings on you both, leah & matto.  i feel very fortunate to have been invited into the fold this coming weekend.  let the celebrations begin. x rebecca
