Kyle wouldn’t just walk to the ends of the earth for Katie; he’d gladly limp. The pair played in a rugby tournament during law school, and while Katie achieved glorious victory with the women’s team, Kyle broke his ankle in the first match. The teams planned a post-tournament celebration at a local restaurant and Kyle was not going to let his broken ankle prevent him from getting to know Katie. He limped to the venue and struck up a conversation with her, which continued throughout the week and eventually over dinner.
Katie suspected Kyle was going to propose during their two-month trip to Europe, but he had other plans. After they returned, their parents planned a private family dinner to celebrate Katie’s graduation from law school. Kyle chose that moment to pop the question just so they could celebrate with the people who meant the most to them.
The Big Day
Even though planning a wedding during a pandemic meant they would have to scale back their guest list, Katie and Kyle still kept their vision of a mountain wedding—and their original date. The outdoor enthusiasts chose Stewart Creek for its beautiful views of the Bow Valley and because the venue reflected their style as a couple. A close friend officiated their intimate outdoor ceremony, and after reading their personalized vows the bride and groom raised glasses of champagne to toast their new life together.

Try to enjoy it us much as possible and don’t sweat the small stuff! At the end of the day, no part of the wedding is more important than the marriage that will follow.”
