Local couple Jason Stabler a friend of Fresh Mornings and Nicole Gagliardi will be married at the Pig’s Ear Tavern on Sunday April 9 at a private event. Stabler and Gagliardi met at Pig’s Ear Trivia in 2013 and continue to be regulars at the monthly ‘Family Open Mic’ nights with their 14 month old daughter, Adelena.
The couple had always imagined the Pig’s Ear playing a part in their wedding day, and approached owners John Punter and Lylie Ryder about hosting the marriage at the Tavern when they learned of its sale in January. “We’re really grateful to John and Lylie for making this happen for us before closing day,” says Gagliardi, “we’ll be tying the knot with equal parts nostalgia and joy, as we close out one institution and enter into another – marriage!” While the location may seem unconventional, Stabler says it was a natural choice. “People say that a wedding should reflect your personal style, and we are Peterborough people. We’re downtown people, Pig’s Ear people, so it makes perfect sense for us to get married there.”
That personal style will also be reflected in the couple’s fashion for the day. Both bride and groom will be dressed by Plush Boutique for the wedding, which will be featured in The Almanac 2018, a style forecast for Peterborough and the Kawarthas. “When you tell people you’re getting married, they immediately ask about ‘the dress’”, comments Nicole. “We’re not exactly white gown and tux people. We wanted something that reflects our modern, urban style, and we found that at Plush.” Stabler says working with the Plush Boutique team has been a great experience. “They know fashion and they know Peterborough. They really took the time to find the right style for us, something unique and personal that will be a perfect fit for our downtown Peterborough wedding.”
Best of Luck Jason and Nicole !
