MELISSA TORPE and KOREY GALLANT

Wedding Bells (East) - - REAL WEDDINGS -

FROM MELISSA: Korey and I met in gym class and con­tin­ued to date all through univer­sity. Our en­gage­ment took place in the fi­nal days of build­ing our first home. Korey got down on one knee in the liv­ing room of the new house and told me he couldn’t wait to spend the rest of our lives to­gether! The wed­ding colours were hunter green with gold ac­cents. We en­vi­sioned our wed­ding hav­ing an el­e­gant gar­den theme. We wanted ev­ery­thing we chose to re­flect the sea­son and the New Brunswick venue. The flow­ers were one of the most stun­ning de­tails. We went with flow­ing, gar­den-style bou­quets, ar­bour ac­cents and cen­tre­pieces. I loved the white gar­den roses, freesia, lisianthus, and both the seeded and sil­ver dol­lar eu­ca­lyp­tus. Our florist helped bring our vi­sion to life with prac­ti­cal sug­ges­tions and ev­ery­thing was per­fectly ex­e­cuted. I’ll never for­get the mo­ment we fi­nally saw one an­other at the be­gin­ning of the cer­e­mony. We chose not to do a first look, so the an­tic­i­pa­tion was build­ing up in­side us. I couldn’t stop the tears flow­ing down my cheeks as we got closer and closer to­gether as I walked down the aisle.
