"My husband Tanner and I both grew up in Lacombe, Alberta. We call it a small town because it has that small town charm where everybody knows everybody. We always hung out with the same friend group, and actually dated for a bit in High School. Out of High School we found each other again, 12 years later, and rekindled our high school romance. Being friends for so long just made it incredibly easy to fall in love.
In April of 2021 we bought our first house together. In July 2021 I had won a couples photoshoot online and Tanner took advantage of that and got in touch with the photographer to set up a surprise proposal at my Grandmother's farm. I was completely taken off guard and it was the most amazing day...until my wedding happened.
My experience at Novelle was AMAZING. I had been communicating over email for a few weeks in regards to the style I was looking for. I fell in love with the Archie from Made With Love and the ladies made sure to have it ready for my appointment. It was of course the first dress I tried on. I had my mind set on it but my stylist found me some gorgeous options to try on as well. My appointment at Novelle was my first choice for dress shopping, and I was out within 45 minutes and had said YES to the dress!
We planned our wedding in a short amount of time and picked December 11th, 2021 as our date. We had it at a brand new venue just north of Lacombe called The Tin Roof. It was absolutely stunning, with peaked ceilings and tons of natural light made for a simple, elegant wedding.
We had our ceremony and reception at the same venue, but for cocktail hour we met at my bar in Lacombe called Ugly's Pub & Grill. We were really lucky at the time as COVID restrictions allowed us to follow the rep program and we had just over 100 of our closest friends and family attend.
Our day was absolutely perfect and I wouldn't change a thing."
