How did you meet?

We both grew up in a small town where everybody knows everybody (Port Alberni, B.C.). We met through mutual friends while we were in middle school one summer at one of our many small town events, the Salmon Festival.

How did he propose?

In May of 2012, we went on a trip to Varadero, Cuba and we went out to a fancy dinner one night. After dinner, he asked me to go for a walk on the beach with him and he proposed while we were laying on a lawn chair looking up at the stars. Super cute!

Why the Canucks jerseys?

We both grew up on Vancouver Island so we’re huge Canucks fans. Even though we have both lived in Edmonton for 4 and 5 years now, we are still loyal to our Canucks and attend every single game that they play against the Oilers in Edmonton (in our jerseys, of course)!

Tell us about your upcoming wedding.

We are having our wedding at the Fairmont Banff Springs at the end of August. It will be an intimate wedding with 50 of our closest friends and family from near and far. We will be having our ceremony on the Outdoor Terrace with the mountains in the background – it’s such a breathtaking view! The reception will follow in one of the many ballrooms that the Fairmont has to offer. We are both so excited to celebrate our love with our closest friends and family in such a gorgeous setting. Thanks to some of our amazing and talented friends, it will truly be the wedding that I have dreamed of since I was a little girl!
