FROM MEGHAN: Steve and I met five years ago. A group of my girl­friends and our friend, Mike, met at my place be­fore a Phan­togram con­cert, and Mike asked if he could in­vite his

friend. Steve showed up and prac­ti­cally bar­relled into my apart­ment with his bike. He was quite per­sis­tent in get­ting my at­ten­tion all night. Our day be­gan with

a mag­i­cal first look in Stan­ley Park. Steve waited for me in the trees. When we saw each other the feel­ing was in­de­scrib­able. It felt so nice to share a pri­vate mo­ment with my hus­band-to-be right be­fore the wed­ding. The wed­ding had a boho-chic vibe.

We had an earthy and dusty rose pal­ette paired with Moroccan ac­cents on the el­e­gant rooftop venue. The city lights and the fairy lights came to­gether per­fectly with rich jewel tones of pur­ple and bur­gundy. We had a lounge with ca­sual seat­ing that in­vited peo­ple to min­gle, and the ar­bour was cov­ered in the most stun­ning flo­rals that brought the whole wed­ding theme to life. We had live mu­sic through­out the cer­e­mony and re­cep­tion. Our friends played gui­tar, bass, drums, cello and sax to our favourite tunes, which in­cluded Ed­ward Sharpe, Dixie Chicks and much more! Alex Ma­her did an amaz­ing sax­o­phone ren­di­tion of our wed­ding song, “Ten­nessee Whiskey” by Chris Sta­ple­ton. It made the first dance sexy and soul­ful.
