FROM KATE: We were on a road trip to Banff Na­tional Park when Thomas pro­posed. His orig­i­nal plan was to pro­pose in a he­li­copter ride over the moun­tains, but it was grounded due to weather. In­stead, he popped the ques­tion dur­ing a hike on the Athabasca Glacier, and I said yes. The next day we went for the resched­uled he­li­copter ride and the pi­lot gave us an ex­tra-long ride as an en­gage­ment present. Our wed­ding theme was el­e­gant and time­less. I chose neu­tral colours that would stand the test of time and al­ways be in style, like white, nude, blush and grey. We also in­cor­po­rated rose-gold ac­cents to play off the colour of our rings. Sur­pris­ingly, one of my favourite mo­ments of the day was when we stopped at McDon­ald’s on the way to the cer­e­mony. The whole wed­ding party went in, fully decked out in our wed­ding at­tire, and we got a stand­ing ova­tion. Peo­ple came over to shake our hands, con­grat­u­late us and give us a lit­tle mar­riage ad­vice—it was so cute. Say­ing our vows dur­ing the cer­e­mony was so mem­o­rable. In that mo­ment, it wasn’t about the guests or the decor, it was about the love we felt for each other. At the end of the night we let loose and had fun danc­ing with our guests.

SAY­ING OUR VOWS DUR­ING THE CER­E­MONY WAS SO MEM­O­RABLE.
