Featured - Sonja & Wade's Real Wedding - Flowers by Nicole
Well it's officially fall but I couldn't help but share one last beautiful summer wedding; featuring our lovely and talented vendor - Flowers by Nicole.
This wedding has a little of everything - from the beautiful florals to the GORGEOUS couple and wedding party!!! The vintage truck to the little details throughout, that reflect the couples love and style. It has it all. But what I love most about this feature is their love story. And I'm grateful that the bride shared a little about it with us! :)
Please enjoy this sweet little story and the beautiful photos documenting their most special of days... Full vendor list at the end!
From the Bride:
Wayde and I met in high school, and as we had a lot in common we ended up being good friends almost immediately. After high school we ended up staying in touch as we went our separate ways — me off to university and him away travelling the world. Eventually, one beautiful summer a few years later, we found ourselves in the same place at the same time, and fate took its course.
We quickly realized we were in it for the long haul. A couple of years went by when Wayde took me on a very normal-seeming walk around a beautiful mountain lake in Banff National Park. The walk ended up being anything but normal. Near the edge of the lake, as the spring snow began to softy float down around us, Wayde got down on one knee and asked me to spend the rest of my life with him. I obviously said yes!
We quickly started planning our dream wedding day for the next summer. We both wanted it to be a day filled with faith, friends, family, love, and a lot of fun. Our inspiration was a mix of styles and themes that we felt were whimsical and earthy. Our colors were a variety of spring-pinks and dusty roses mixed with earthy greens and gold. We wanted just the right mix of sparkle and twinkle-lights alongside earthy rustic elements.
It came together beautifully. Our day was absolutely perfect. The things we had worried about leading up to our wedding day seemed insignificant. We were surrounded with our friends and family enjoying such a beautiful day of celebrating our love and commitment. - Sonja
