Season For Love

Barb & Garrett Manto


A chance encounter at Stella’s nightclub in St. Catharines had the sparks fl ying for Barb and Garrett back in 2008 and the couple have been enjoying the party ever since. Garrett used the occasion of their two-year anniversary and the backdrop of Niagara Falls, asking for Barb’s hand among the mist and natural wonder. He held his breath as Barb’s fi rst response was: “Are you serious?” only to exhale, when she followed that with an exuberant “Yes!” Located at the foot of the Niagara Escarpment, the Lincoln Garden Banquet Centre offered an ideal setting of breathtaking fall scenery, with leaves changing colour and mums in burnt oranges, deep reds and yellows. Even the bridesmaids celebrated the season in fern green dresses. With great music, eight fl avours of cupcakes and gorgeous centrepieces, this couple celebrated just as they had met, with dancing and laughter. However, it was the moment of getting to kiss her husband that solidifi ed this momentous occasion for the bride. In the end, it was a harvest season themed wedding to signify the change, growth and future for this wonderful couple. - LAUREN THOMAS
