The couple begin their wedding ceremony on their private dock, while the event was streaming live to one of Mimi's children in South Africa.

David and Mimi decided they didn't want to wait until the pandemic was over to commit themselves to one another for eternity. Just prior to quarantine, they had moved into a beautiful home on a private lake in Madoc, Ontario. As five of their children had been quarantining with them, they felt that the best place to have their wedding was at home.
