So excited to be sharing Sheila and Jamie’s wedding story. Sheila always dreamt of getting married in the backyard of her childhood home and on her wedding day she got to do just that.
How did you meet?
Jamie and I met at a country night at a local bar. I wish it was a more romantic story! He proposed over thanksgiving weekend in 2016. We spent the day at the Norwood fair (a family tradition). Then we went for a drive to his family cottage to see the beautiful autumn leaves. We went out on the lake in the boat, and went to shore to watch the sunset. It was a complete surprise when he proposed! We rushed home to tell our family and friends.
What are your top 3 best moments that happened during your wedding day and why they are your favourite?
We discussed our top three wedding moments, there are so many to choose from! We both agreed that the ‘first look’ was our favourite moment (I’m so glad you encouraged us to do it!). It was so special to have a moment just for us before the wedding began. Our next favourite moment was the ceremony. It was really special to us to be married in our church in front of our community. We also look back fondly on celebrating with our friends and family. We had such a great time dancing with everyone. I wish we could relive the day over and over again! Some of our favourite wedding details would have to be my dress/Jamie’s suit, the flowers, and the lights that we had up at the barn and tent. At night they made everything look so magical.
A piece of advice for other couples getting married.
I asked Jamie what his advice would be, and he said “take every moment in, it will go by way too fast.
