If you look at this wedding and think – “hey that couple looks like loads of fun, I bet I could be friends with them” – then stand in line sister – I found them first. They are mine, all mine! I was so enamoured by these two – that I accidentally showed up a day early to our first meeting.
Tommy is a top notch chef who has worked in some of the world’s best restaurants. You can currently find him kicking ass and taking names as the new Executive Chef at Gusto 101 in Toronto.
Emily is a unicorn – she is legendary, one of a kind and all around awesome. There were times when she would email me and her emails would have me laughing so hard that the laughter was silent. You could clearly see that I was laughing but no sound would come out. It would be at a decibel level that maybe only unicorns and Bill Murray could hear. I would then click “reply” and stare at the blinking cursor – how on earth could I match that. Sometimes, I would have to wait a day or two before emailing back because I had nothing. All retorts seemed like Saturday Night Live when it was bad and she was always Saturday Night Live when it was great.
Because of Tommy’s epic chefness – he knows all the right peeps in Toronto. Their ceremony took place in the wine cellar of Barberian’s on Elm street. Magical, intimate and surrounded by the best wines and your nearest and dearest – you cannot go wrong. The reception, cocktailing and dancing all took place at splendiferous Splendido – where Tommy recently worked and also happens to be one of Toronto’s top culinary spots. Chef Victor Barry and his unbelievable staff were incredible. The service is literally on a different level then anything we have ever seen. It was an art and a science and we were in awe. Did I mention that Tommy’s sister in law is Nadege – yup, like in mouth watering macaroons and perfect patisserie on Queen Street West Nadege. She created the dessert table – just in case you weren’t jealous before.
So if you are looking for new friends who happen to be able to rock a kilt like nobody’s business, can have you skip the line up at Gusto 101, have mad hookups with the best macaroons in the city and will have you believing in unicorns again – then you better keep looking because I don’t think they exist.
