Wedding Bells (West) - - Real Weddings -

FROM LIND­SAY: We spend ev­ery Christ­mas in Lac des Arcs, Al­berta, with my fam­ily, so Cameron thought it would be the per­fect place to pop the ques­tion. Af­ter talk­ing with my fam­ily about propos­ing, Cam hid the ring in a tree or­na­ment on Christ­mas Eve. Once all the presents had been opened on Christ­mas morn­ing, Cam an­nounced there was one more gift for me to open, got down on one knee and asked in front of my whole fam­ily. We’ve al­ways thought of our love as a fairy tale, so we in­cor­po­rated spe­cial de­tails into the decor to sym­bol­ize that. The wed­ding cake had a glass slip­per on it, and be­tween us at the head ta­ble was a twin­kling glass vase hold­ing a turquoise rose. Get­ting cre­ative in the Dreger fam­ily work­shop al­lowed us to per­son­al­ize and bring our vi­sion to life. All the time we spent build­ing and paint­ing the frames, cen­tre­pieces, can­dle­hold­ers, sig­nage and more was re­ally spe­cial, and made the process lead­ing up to the wed­ding so much fun. I loved all the sen­ti­men­tal touches at the wed­ding. I wore my grand­mother’s wed­ding dress, our cousin of­fi­ci­ated the cer­e­mony, and our fam­ily dog, Peb­bles, walked down the aisle with the bridal party.

I LOVED ALL THE SEN­TI­MEN­TAL TOUCHES AT THE WED­DING.
