HUMANISM is an ethical philosophy of secular living, stating we all share a duty of care, to lead ethical lives of compassion and respect, for each other, and for the world we all share. Humanist Wedding Ceremonies are simple, meaningful, non-religious legal marriage ceremonies written specifically for each couple, which reflect your wishes, your values, and your story. We also provide humanist ceremonies for baby-namings, memorials, and other life events.

Toronto Island Rectory Cafe - lovely wedding, and pix on the boardwalk

What an entirely wonderful lunch wedding on the patio of the Rectory Cafe at Ward's Island - feels like the proper start of summer.  They can handle a big event, but this was just family and friends, so we had our own ceremony area under the tree, and they set up the bar and dining tables for the wedding party and guests.  Wedding ceremony AND reception all in one place, with absolutely wonderful scenery and food.  The weather was BEAUTIFUL, so here we are on the boardwalk!

Peter Pan Bistro - small family wedding downtown

Peter Pan Bistro, 2nd Floor
Had a lovely smallish family wedding this weekend for about 40 people on the 2nd floor event space at the Peter Pan Bistro, on Queen West.  Here's the space (we held the ceremony by the fireplace in the front window, then flipped the room for dinner, while they set up a bar in the back space). 
The staff was wonderful, the post-wedding cocktail hour was yummy (crab cakes, cheese straws and fun things). I hadn't eaten at the PPan for 30 years or so, so it was really fun to see it transformed.
