Alberta Cabin Wedding

Breanne + Luke: Alberta Cabin Wedding

Posted by Blush Magazine Posted on August 31, 2017

The West Coast played a huge recurring role in Breanne and Luke’s relationship, so it’s no wonder their DIY wedding had a laid-back vibe. They met during a hiking trip on the West Coast Trail, and Luke proposed in Sloquet near Whistler.

The Proposal

When he dropped Breanne off at the airport for a girls’ winter camping trip, he was the last person she expected to see in the mountains. After they arrived at their campsite, Breanne’s friend convinced her to hike to the river for a photo. Breanne got the surprise of her life when Luke managed to appear in the middle of nowhere and propose with his grandmother’s vintage ring. It turned out he hid in the backseat of her friend’s car for three hours!

The Big Day

They held their intimate wedding at Breanne’s family cabin to share the special place with close friends and family. The bride and groom shared a quiet moment during their first look, which put Breanne at ease and reminded her what the day was really about. She then walked past her childhood playhouse to the deck where she and Luke enjoy their morning coffee, then said “I do” over the glimmering lake. They wrote their vows separately, but they mirrored each other beautifully. “It was a symbolic reminder of how much we truly complement one another,” says Luke.

Advice from the Newlyweds
