Kara and Kyle met through mutual friends while playing on the same softball team, but it took Kyle over two years to hit a homerun and win Kara’s heart.
One year Kyle sent Kara on a scavenger hunt around their home and neighbourhood to find her Christmas present. The last clue was to find the comfiest bed in the house; Kara ran into their bedroom to find Kyle down on one knee. “My Christmas present that year was Kyle… Forever!”
The Big Day
The couple wanted to hold their wedding in a place near and dear to them: their own property in their hometown of Edson. They exchanged rings in a beautiful riverside ceremony officiated by Kara’s aunt, then danced the starry night away to a live band under a white tent. Their 230 guests were treated to cotton candy, a spectacular fireworks display, and watching the couple cruise around in their 1986 Rockwood motorhome.
Kara: Seeing Kyle’s face when she walked down the aisle and being pronounced husband and wife.
Kyle: The combination of gorgeous weather, their favourite people, and marrying the love of his life.

Advice from the Newlyweds
“Stay calm and don’t worry about the small stuff. The day is over before you know it. Hiring a wedding planner can really help to make sure the day runs smoothly without putting unnecessary burden on family and friends.”
Looking Forward to Most Now Being Married
The newlyweds look forward to traveling, raising children, and growing old together. Kara particularly enjoys knowing they get to spend every lazy Sunday cuddled up on the couch watching Netflix.
