JENNIFER ROMEO and REID GALLANT
JULY 2, 2016
FROM JENNIFER: Although we are both nurses at Health Sciences Centre in Winnipeg, we actually met at a music festival in August 2013. It was love at first sight, and we both tried to prolong the evening so we could keep talking. Two years later Reid proposed on the first night of a trip to Mexico—he was so excited he couldn’t wait! We chose the Qualico Family Centre in Assiniboine Park as our venue for its natural beauty and architecture. We loved the light that streams in from the large windows, and the park made a beautiful backdrop for our reception. The service was excellent, and everything went off without a hitch. For the decor, we took inspiration from summer garden flowers and the lace on my wedding dress. We chose blush pink and dove grey as our colours to complement the beautiful florals. They were the highlight of the wedding for many of our guests, and I especially loved the tall centrepieces and the ceremony arch. Our wedding cake was one of my favourite details. Reid and I are regulars at Jenna Rae Cakes, so we knew she would deliver something spectacular. We chose a coconut cake with coconut buttercream, which was almost too beautiful to cut.
OUR WEDDING CAKE WAS ONE OF MY FAVOURITE DETAILS.
