We love how our bride Abby let her personal style shine through with her bridal look- and the results are breathtaking! Find out more about this stunning mountain wedding, filled with personal touches and breathtaking views, from the bride herself:
"Ever since we met in a hockey rink in grade twelve, I've known that Levi is my forever. My best friend (who is also Levi's cousin) was sure that the two of us would make a perfect match, and started taking me to watch Levi's hockey games. Before I knew it, I was falling in love with this amazing, hardworking, country man. Levi's family loves the mountains and going horse riding and on camping trips there, and soon I was part of these incredible mountain adventures. Levi and I visit the mountains as often as possible, and it is a shared love of ours.
The past seven years with Levi have truly been the best of my life, full of so much love and laughter. After years of anticipation from our friends and family, last summer Levi asked me to marry him up in the remote mountains at Ice Lake- a place Levi has loved since he was a child and it quickly became my favourite place since he first took me there. It was one of the best days of my life. From that moment, I started to plan our dream wedding!
I knew we would get married in the mountains, and I needed a dress that would be as equally beautiful as our mountain backdrop. I immediately fell in love with the Galatea gown by Willowby. I had always heard such incredible things about Novelle, and had followed them on social media for some time. When I saw that they had the Galatea gown, I knew it was meant to be! I was fortunate to have Lydia as my bridal consultant, who showed me some other dresses that were stunning and quite the competition to my dream gown! But, Galatea was my dream dress, and I said 'yes!' Throughout the whole process, Novelle was incredible to work with. They made my shopping experience so enjoyable and it was truly a bride's dream. I am so proud to be a Novelle bride, and thank you for having my dream dress!
On my wedding day, I cried when I looked in the mirror and saw myself as a bride. Even as we look at pictures now of our special day, I tear up thinking about how beautiful it was. We had the most incredible team of vendors, and were surrounded by our closest friends and family in the place we love most. It was the perfect beginning to our adventure, and I can't wait to spend the rest of my life with Levi, making more memories in the mountains we love! Our adventure begins!
