FROM AGNES: When the op­por­tu­nity came to ex­change our vows in the Ba­hamas, it was a no-brainer. We were one of 16 lucky Cana­dian cou­ples cho­sen through a con­test to have their wed­ding take place at 4 p.m. in 16 dif­fer­ent lo­ca­tions in the Ba­hamas. Our wed­ding celebration was very in­ti­mate—it was just us. We’re throw­ing a re­cep­tion party in the sum­mer for the fam­ily and friends who weren’t able to at­tend. On the day of our wed­ding, it looked like it was go­ing to rain. The wed­ding plan­ner told us if the ex­treme weather con­tin­ued, we needed a backup plan for the venue. We hoped the weather would co-op­er­ate be­cause we re­ally wanted to get mar­ried on the beach. Thank­fully the sun came out one hour be­fore the cer­e­mony. Ex­chang­ing vows was such a mem­o­rable mo­ment. I felt my heart rac­ing, and the ex­pres­sion on Travis’s face was full of emo­tion and sin­cer­ity. When we sat down to sign the wed­ding con­tract, a rain­bow ap­peared over our heads!

OUR WED­DING CELEBRATION WAS VERY IN­TI­MATE—IT WAS JUST US.
