An unexpected wedding proposal and a dream of a summer garden wedding meant we needed to get into planning mode immediately and that started with finding the perfect dress. Maggie at The Bridal Gallery was so calm and reassuring about the process of selecting a gown just for me. Leading up to the big day was - I'm not going to lie - stressful, but once breakfast was served and our wonderful hair and makeup team arrived to pamper my best friends and I, it was smooth sailing. Slipping on my dress was an experience I'll never forget; it was completely surreal to see myself in the mirror all primped, manicured, and feeling fabulous before heading off to say our vows at the UBC Botanical Garden. Rings were exchanged, everyone cheered, and it was time to sneak away with my new husband and our photographer, Mikaela Ruth, for some intimate post-ceremony photos and a few glasses of champagne! Overalll it was an incredible wedding day and I couldn't thank all of our vendors enough. From the initial visit to The Bridal Gallery to the fabulous dinner reception at L'abbatoire Restaurant, everything fell into place just perfectly!
