Like so many before them, Lesley and Paul decided to wed at The University of Toronto’s Knox College. But unlike so many before them, it wasn’t just the hauntingly beautiful Gothic archways that drew the couple in. Nor was it the enchanted, columned walkways that enticed their hearts. For Lesley and Paul, Knox’s allure was more than picturesque; it was personal. Three generations of Lesley’s family have tied the knot at Knox: Great Aunt and Uncle, Grandparents, parents all. And if history wasn’t promising enough, who better to bless their marriage than Lesley’s own cousin: A recent graduate of Knox College, and Minister of the Presbyterian Church, cousin Reuben was most assuredly the minister at her and Paul’s ceremony.
Knox College’s official colour is purple. Purple has long been known as the colour of wisdom; the colour of faith; the colour of distinction. Lesley and Paul have aptly set themselves apart; a little faith in history is all they really needed to pave the way to the future.
