The Wedding Album: Lisa & Nick’s city hall ceremony and Jamie Kennedy-catered picnic reception

Lisa & Nick | August 14, 2011 | St. Lawrence Market

The Wedding Album | Lisa & Nick

It was only fitting for illustrator Lisa Harrison, 31, and cartoonist Nick Wolfe, 32, to plan an unconventional wedding; they met when a mutual friend invited them to play cosmic minigolf. As circumstances had it, they wouldn’t see each other again until two years later at the same friend’s wedding. On that evening, the pair exchanged a few items of clothing: she wore his jacket, and he wore her scarf. They were a couple by the end of the night. It would take six years of living together with three felines before they contemplated marriage as the logical next step. “After that many years and that many cats, it had to happen,” says Lisa. No need for a proposal. “There was no moment. It was just a natural thing.” The couple decided on a small ceremony at city hall with a few family members and close friends, followed by an afternoon picnic at High Park. Jamie Kennedy came on board as the caterer and proposed a menu of classic picnic fare (barbecued chicken and devilled eggs) presented to each guest in an individual basket with handmade linen napkins and biodegradable cutlery. The planning was going swimmingly until three days before the reception. Faced with a grim weather forecast, Lisa and Nick decided to move the reception to their backup location on the second floor of the St. Lawrence Market. Still, the picnic theme endured: guests arrived in summer dresses and seersucker, and chef Kennedy went the extra mile, arriving with unexpected baskets of fresh peaches and loaves of homemade bread, still warm from the oven.
