FROM THE BRIDE:
1. Isaac and I are high school sweethearts! He was the new guy at school in our sophomore year and we quickly fell for each other after meeting at class and within a month of starting the school year he asked me out on September 23rd 2011. After that we were truly inseparable, spending every lunch break together walking around the school track field outside talking, laughing and falling more and more in love with each other.
2. Isaac and I continued dating for five years until he proposed on October 29th 2016 when he took me out on a special date that he disguised as a supposed early birthday present. Since we both love nature and used to ride horses when we were younger; he planned a day of horseback riding on a winding trail leading to a secluded beach by the lake near the Niagara area. The trail ride ended with a romantic picnic for two in the forest where he took my hand and got down on one knee and flipped open the ring box and asked if I would marry him and I, of course, ecstatically said yes!
3. The best part of planning our wedding was knowing that every detail we were arranging meant it was one step closer to celebrating our forever! It was a crazy exciting time, and I was so blessed to have both my wedding planner Kassia from Twelfth Night Events, who is a total perfectionist, and my best friend and fiancé Isaac playing an active role in creating this happy day as well as our closest friends and family all pouring in their love and support to us. One of the top priorities we had for our wedding was making sure that the day really reflected back on us as a couple. For our first home together we were planning to move to a farmhouse on one of Isaac’s family farms so we knew from the beginning we wanted to have a rustic glam feeling to our day. This was a celebration of us as a couple and our love so it was definitely important to us for that to be evident throughout the day. We wanted to make sure that we used our favourite colours, flowers, and foods - by doing ‘His’ and ‘Hers’ salads, having signature drinks, having an overlying blue colour theme (which our favourite colour), using our favourite hymns to sing in the chapel during our ceremony and of course having our reception in a barn were a few ways we really made the day our own!
