MY FAVOURITE WEDDING
Now? Right now?! This is happening right now? My exact words coming out of my mouth as my now husband knelt on one knee with the faint 2am light glistening on the diamond ring he slipped on to my finger. Three glowing pumpkins carved with “Will you marry me?” placed on the steps of our basement suite behind him. An image later to be shared as a full page spread in the local newspaper.
And so it began… months of preparation for our wedding day. From choosing our vendors (which is shockingly difficult when you’re a wedding planner marrying a wedding photographer), finalizing guest lists and schedules, pre-marital counseling, cake tastings, and designing our day to be the truest reflection of who were are, all the preparations were complete.
We were married on September 21, 2013 at Revelstoke Mountain Resort in Royce’s hometown. We exchanged vows and wedding bands engraved with the mountain in the background of our ceremony, Mount Begbie. Our guests took the gondola up to the mid-mountain lodge using lift passes with my husband’s ski photos on them. We served local draft beer with a burger and poutine bar and started the evening off with a shot ski on Royce’s late father’s skis. The first dance was performed by our former wedding client turned best man and the last dance finished with our closest friends by our side. The day was perfect. Truly us in every way.
When I fell asleep that night I was a wife and Royce, a husband. I can honestly say that waking up on your wedding day is amazing, but waking up every day after that is even better.
