Married on Mar 12, 2016

How do you describe to someone your most perfect day ever... you can tell stories, show pictures. But describing that feeling of joy and excitement, knowing you get to spend the rest of your life with your best friend, is nearly impossible.

The entire week before our wedding was rainy, windy and very cold. The weather forecast for our wedding day was set to be a very stormy one, and that would make any bride nervous. So the very first thing I did waking up on the day of our wedding was rush to the window to check the weather, and it was such a beautiful, warm sunny day.

The day before the wedding some of our family and friends helped with the setup for the big day. Through all the chaos and stress, it was actually such a fun day. You really come to realize how many people you have in your life that loves and supports you when everyone just wants to help with the setup to create the perfect day that you always dreamed of.

And it was. It was everything I dreamed of and more.

We chose Glenburn Lodge as our venue because we both love nature and Glenburn Lodge has the most beautiful, lush green gardens with little waterfalls everywhere. The staff was so friendly and helpful, and the food was to die for!

At the ceremony we replaced the traditional 'unity candle' with a unity painting. The canvas is up in our house and will forever be a reminder of the day we became one.

Our reception was like a chapter from a fairy-tale. Fairy lights everywhere, food fit for a king, laughter, and our first dance was in the clouds!

If I could ever go back and do it all over again, I would do everything exactly the same. But the best part about our wedding day, is that we got to laugh with and celebrate the most perfect day in our lives with all the people that are close to our hearts.
That, is what makes a wedding day special!
