Kim & Ryan Miske of Team RD Fitness tied the knot at the end of the summer at the beautiful Brockhouse Restaurant . This venue overlooks the ocean above Jericho beach and features stunning mountain views and views of the city.
Ryan is my personal trainer (He’s the best, highly recommend him if you want to feel like a beast in the gym!). During one of our training sessions, I urged him to go see my friends at Broadway Jewelers to select her ring. He popped the question at Boulevard Kitchen and Oyster Bar to Kim, and boom, the wedding planning started.
Ryan and Kim selected Brockhouse pretty quickly. They loved the location, the views and how the venue includes a lot of items such as full service catering, bar, ceremony, reception and chivari chairs.

The Cherry Blossoms
The bride’s mom, Marina, had passed away before Kim met Ryan. Leading up to the day I worked with Kim and her mom’s best friend Laura to create a memory table to honour her and to remember her as a loving mother and wife. Marina’s spirit was present throughout the wedding day. Kim and her sister both spoke kind words and fond memories about her and Kim’s dad, David made a beautiful speech.
Cherry blossoms were a part of the decor and Kim’s cousin and the emcee, Justin was asked to say the following to the guests:
The cherry blossom represents the fragility and the beauty of life. It’s a reminder that life is almost overwhelmingly beautiful but that it is also tragically short. We’ve incorporating the cherry blossoms in our decor in honor of the brides mom, who passed away from cancer. It’s a reminder to always enjoy the moment, to always appreciate the simple things in life and never take our loved ones for granted.

Kind words from the couple
Kim: Thanks to this amazing wedding coordinator Tarina for making my day go super smooth and stress free! I honestly couldn’t have done it without her along with my other vendors, family and friends who helped out. If you need an event coordinator I would recommend her in a heartbeat!! I’m SO grateful I had her in my corner.
Ryan: Tarina was amazing, my wife and I could not have asked for more. Our wedding ran perfect, zero hiccups, and mainly because she was so organized. Tarina removed the stress from the process and kept an eye on every detail. Everyone at the wedding loved her, and we highly recommend using her services!
