Natalie and Mario have known each other for ages. After connecting through mutual friends, they have been dating all the way since 2003. When Mario proposed, it was on Natalie's birthday. Earlier in the week, she arrived home early and found a package, thinking that it was the handbag she had been wanting. He played it off like the package was for his mom. At midnight of her birthday he gave her the mysterious package. As she was opening it up, to her dismay she found the big box empty! She then spotted a tiny box inside and looked to Mario who was on one knee. She may not have gotten that handbag but she got something even better!
Their wedding day began at the beautiful Granite Links on a bright sunny day. All the girls were getting ready waiting for the guys to show up to the door so they could embarrass them with door games. The guys completed all their ridiculous tasks with a smile and Mario was let in to see Natalie for the first time right before walking down the aisle. The ceremony was short and sweet with a quick peck and rose petals thrown as they exited.
The reception took place at China Pearl and the highlight of the night was the lion dance! Following that they had table toasts where each table created some crazy concoction to force Mario to drink. He let his groomsmen take the brunt of those and by the end of the night, everyone was laughing, singing Karaoke and dancing the night away.
