The stars aligned the night Shea and Andy met. They knew about each other through a mutual friend, but didn’t meet until Andy drove to Calgary for a military course. He invited Shea for a drink and she accepted despite having classes the next day and plans with her brother, Cody, that night. It turned out classes were cancelled, Cody went on a date with his future wife, and Shea and Andy fell in love.
On a weekend trip to Fernie, Andy booked a spa date to make up for leaving Shea behind to golf with her dad. After an hour of pampering, the two were relaxing in the spa lounge when Andy left for a bathroom break. He came back with the ring “and said all of the things every girl wants to hear from the man she loves when he asks her to be his wife!” says Shea.
The Big Day
The couple held their wedding in beautiful Fernie, BC with a cozy reception at Elk View Lodge. They had a midnight taco and nacho bar to feed Shea’s nacho addiction, and honoured Andy’s military background by donating to the Royal Canadian Legion in lieu of wedding favours.
While they had fun dancing all night, their vows are what really mattered to Shea and Andy; “Promising our lives to one another was truly what our wedding was about.”
