SHANTEL FEDYNA and SEAN KENNETT

Wedding Bells (West) - - Real Weddings -

FROM SHANTEL: I met Sean on Christ­mas Day in 2012. A work friend, Sean’s sis­ter, Heather, in­vited me to her house be­cause my par­ents were away in Hawaii for the hol­i­days. Sean and I were both dat­ing other peo­ple at the time, but there was an in­stant at­trac­tion, and seven months later we went on our first date. Our wed­ding theme was clas­sic, tra­di­tional and def­i­nitely unique. We both wanted a wed­ding that was truly dif­fer­ent and out of the or­di­nary; an event our guests would re­mem­ber for years to come. I was the last of my sib­lings to be mar­ried, so I re­ally wanted my par­ents to be proud of the celebration. For the decor we chose a pal­ette that in­cluded rose gold, navy and slate grey. We also in­cor­po­rated subtle pops of colour through the stun­ning flo­ral bou­quets, which fea­tured proteas, orchids, roses and plenty of green­ery. The hand­made rose-gold frames hang­ing from the venue ceil­ing re­ally tied ev­ery­thing to­gether and added an el­e­gant, mem­o­rable touch. I sur­prised Sean by hav­ing his wed­ding band en­graved with the words “For­ever my Strength.” He teared up when he saw it, and again when he said his vows. It was an un­for­get­table mo­ment!
