Magical Moments


I've always been a person who dreamed and planned my dream wedding from young. Anyone that knows me know how I absolutely love weddings, my dream job would be planning weddings.

My Wedding day was everything I could have imagined and so much more.

There was so much love, laughter, joy and family bonding on that day.

Getting ready that morning, I couldn't believe the day was finally here, it didn't even feel real. My bridesmaids, my best of friends knew how I awaited this day. They were just as excited as I was!

The butterflies started once I put on my dream dress, which was designed for me by Hanrie Lues Bridal. This is when I things started feeling surreal.

Walking down the aisle towards my husband was one of the absolute best moments in my life. It was like the world shut off for awhile and all I could see was him looking at me in awe.

I am a big lover of Photography, so we hired the best, Lauren Oliver. We took a drive to one of the viewpoints in the valley of thousand hills. We took our creative shoot there and it honestly was like a movie. I wanted to feel like that forever.

At our reception we ate, we danced, we laughed, our families became one.

Oh what I would do to relive that day!
I miss being a bride, and I cannot wait for my friends to get married to help them plan a magical day like the one I got to live on the 7th of March 2020 ❤
