Amy and Daniel met on eHarmony in February 2012. The first date turned into a second, third, fourth and fifth in the same week! From that point, they both knew that was it.
Roughly a year later, May 2013, Dan proposed to Amy at their favourite resort where they first travelled together—Dreams in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Amy was overjoyed and expressed the private moment between the two of them was absolutely perfect.
The Big Day
Wanting to tie the knot where Daniel popped the question, the couple reserved a date in May 2014 and began planning their wedding at Dreams Resort. Unfortunately, six months before the wedding, Amy and Daniel were informed the resort had been bought and all weddings after April 2014 are cancelled. “We were heartbroken,” says Amy, “but decided to move up the date because all that really mattered was getting married!”
The couple’s Great Gatsby theme wedding at Yellowhead Brewery went off without a hitch. The unique venue added character to the celebration and also fostered a cozy atmosphere for the intimate gathering.
Amy: “The first was our first look. Spending that hour alone with Dan before the ceremony was absolutely perfect and I’m so glad that Blake talked us into doing it. The second was our first dance together. We were surrounded by people who love and support us and love was just radiating throughout the room. We are so lucky to have such amazing families and friends.“
Dan: “My favourite moments were seeing Amy for the first time, spending time outside in the warmth for photos, and eating dinner – it was pretty delicious!”

Advice from the Newlyweds
“Enjoy it. The planning process is an experience almost as important as the wedding day and you only get to do it once. Enjoy the decision making and the time you get to spend with loved ones.”
Looking Forward to Most Now Being Married
As newlyweds, Amy and Daniel most look forward to finding joy in the simple things, such as date nights, and traveling as husband and wife.
