A truly international love story! Lydia grew up in Port Dalhousie and Erwin is from the Netherlands; they met in 2009 at a bar in Sweden, and he proposed in 2014 in Portugal. At that point, we were living in Amsterdam, but selecting the wedding location was easy for them. They had always planned to marry in Lydia's homeland, and specifically in the Niagara vineyards where she grew up. The setting at Kurtz Orchards was absolute perfection, and their 85 guests, including 35 Europeans who flew in, witnessed a ceremony in the pear orchard and enjoyed dinner under twinkling lights strung through cherry trees. The natural beauty of the Niagara setting was a highlight. Of course the best part was being surrounded by family and friends from all over the world, together in one place.
