Nicole & William's Wedding
When we got engaged on October 21st, 2018, we quickly learned that venue shopping is similar to a competitive sport and had to act fast (choosing another venue was not going to happen after we had our tour at Hacienda!), so we chose March 21st.
You may be wondering, why March 21st? Drum roll please…. our date is just one day before this year’s spring/ vernal equinox! The first day of spring arrives on varying dates (from March 19-21) which means in the future, the first day of spring will fall on our wedding date!
You may also be wondering, why does this matter? Well, for those of you who love science as much as Nicole does, Equinoxes are special days during the year when day and night are equal. There are only two equinoxes, one in the spring and one in the fall. Equinox literally means "equal night" when the day and night are the same length. After all, marriage takes commitment and devotion from two “equal” partners! For those of you who need a little reminder, the spring equinox marks the first day of spring. It marks a spiritual celebration to honour of the change of seasons, and new beginnings - such as a new beginning for us as we enter our marriage!
While we are on the topic of Spring, it is referred to as the official season of love! Fresh buds bloom (a timeless symbol of beauty, fertility and love), animals awaken and the earth comes to life again. Every year on our anniversary we will be welcomed with a new beginning, building on the love we have grown for each other over every passing year. After reading all of that, think our wedding date is kind of cool? We think so too!
Lastly and most importantly, we are so thankful to have you here with us to both celebrate the start of our journey and celebrate the start of this year’s new beginning!
