Jamie and David fell in love at first sight when they met at a party, but it took another two months before they saw each other again while attending the Calgary Stampede with friends. David made it blatantly clear that he wanted to date Jamie and wouldn’t leave her side the entire night—despite her efforts to test his resolve—and they fell fast and hard for each other.
David used their flooded apartment as a good excuse to whisk Jamie away to Banff over her birthday weekend. They planned a day of cross-country skiing, but when the trail to Moraine Lake hit a dead end and they found themselves alone, David proposed.
The Big Day
Jamie had always wanted to get married at her family’s lakeside property, and the couple loved that it felt like a destination wedding but was still convenient for guests. Right after their vows the bride and groom paddled their canoe to share a peaceful moment together on the calm waters. Everyone enjoyed a family-style dinner of burgers and fresh salads using local ingredients, and handmade chocolates for dessert. The guests kept the DJ playing until the happily exhausted newlyweds sent him home at 3 a.m.
