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.
