A Spring Wedding at the Wyndemere Country Club in Naples, Florida
Patricia Hrousalas (29, an inventory and merchandise planner at Holt Renfew) and Dave (Dave) Armstrong (a director at Onex Corporation) met through a mutual friend and started dating soon after. Eight years later, Dave proposed while he and Patricia were exchanging christmas presents at The Ritz-Carlton in Toronto. “My first thoughts were I didn’t think this was ever going to happen then sheer happiness and excitement. Of course I said yes,” says Patricia. They had an outdoor wedding 16 months later at the Wyndemere Country Club. Patricia and Dave’s pink color scheme was inspired by their custom save the date cards designed with pink and white lettering by a friend. The eighteenth hole served as their ceremony space. With the help of Patricia’s mother, it was decorated with white chairs and a white fabric draped arch with small arrangements of hydrangeas and pink garden roses as accents. Similar decor was reflected in the couple’s indoor reception as white linen covered tables were accented with low white hydrangea, pink lavender, blush garden rose, orange hypericum berry and dusty miller centerpieces. Patricia, Dave and their guests enjoyed a buffet style dinner as the Pangea Band played in the background.
