A Dazzling Anniversary Weekend

This past weekend Nick and I celebrated 3 years of marriage – which feels at the same time like it was yesterday, and also like we’ve been together forever!  Funny how that happens when it’s true love 🙂

Before the weekend arrived, we went on a late night date to Demetre’s for delicious anniversary desserts, check out my red velvet cheesecake torte with white chocolate ice cream!

That night we also watched our wedding video while enjoying some pink champagne, which has become a bit of a tradition!

We started off the celebratory weekend on Friday, and sped off to our destination – Niagara Falls.  Yup, the (surprising) honeymoon capital of the world, at least self-proclaimed as such.  I like that we try to get away from home and the city on these occasions, otherwise I’m kind of the type that would get caught up in errands and projects hehe!

So, Niagara Falls.  We stayed in a charming hotel, in their Scarlett O’Hara suite which had a heart-shaped whirlpool – and believe me, that was a dream!  It was so relaxing and amazing.

We went for romantic walks along the water and throughout the city…

And even did a maze of mirrors!

After a few days of beautiful relaxation and romance, we decided to stop at a winery on the way home on Sunday.  We drove out to Chateau des Charmes, which was a lovely place, and happy coincidence, we found the exact wine we had at our wedding here!  Check out the beautiful property and roses on the grounds.

There were a few other little treats too, like cupcakes chosen to harken back to our wedding cake, and Lindor truffles like we gave as wedding favours.  It was a magical weekend, and a beautiful celebration of 3 years of happily ever after!

Have you guys ever been to Niagara Falls, and if so, what’s your favourite thing to do there?

Any sweet or funny anniversary traditions you have?
