"When someone else's happiness is your happiness, that is love."
-Lana Del Ray
I like asking couples how they met and fell in love, and when I asked Chris and & Monique this question, Chris had the best response, he said "When we met there were fireworks!" And he meant it literally, because they first laid eyes on each other at the Global Fest Fireworks Competition, where they were introduced to each other by mutual friends. They've been together ever since.
They tied the knot at Olds College Rose Garden near Monique's childhood home, surrounded by the people who love them. And let me tell you this couple is loved by many, people came from as far away as Australia to help them celebrate! I could go on and on about this wedding, but I thought it would be fun to give you my top three highlights and let the photos tell the rest of the story.
1. The Bridal Party: these girls were not only sisters and friends of the bride, they were all competitive figure skaters who had travelled together and knew how to work as a team! #squadgoals This includes the brides amazing mother/wedding planner extraordinaire. They had seriously thought of everything (just wait until you see all the pretty details) and made sure the bride could relax and enjoy her day!
They were also a dream to photograph.
2. Two first looks. Before the bride and groom did their first look, Monique did a first look with her dad. It was the first time he had seen her in her wedding dress and such a heartwarming moment!
3. Chris and Monique's dance skills! This couples first dance was a show stopper & her gorgeous gown was made for twirling around the dance floor. It couldn't have been more perfect.
