Personalizing Their Bird’s Eye Cove Farm Wedding By Including Their Loved Ones
We incorporated our family in many different ways. Our sweet little Louisa walked down the aisle before me. Chris got down on one knee, gave her a ring pop, vowed his unconditional love and protection, and asked her if he could marry her mommy. My dad had just rebuilt a 1950’s Chevy delivery van and I shocked him by asking if he would drive us to the altar in his new wheels. He was so, so excited! It was an extraordinary father-daughter moment. Growing up, my mom was a superwoman. She was our rock and our world. Even when I was in my teens, I always knew I wanted both my parents to walk me down the aisle. So my dad drove us up to the altar, where my mom was waiting for us, and I got to walk with them, hand in hand, to my fiancé waiting for me in front of an old barn to say I do.
Writing Their Own Vows Was Difficult But Worth It
The most memorable part of the day for me would, hands down, be saying my vows out loud to Chris. It was so unbelievably emotional. So powerful and magical. It brought up such intense feelings and memories and filled my heart with gratitude and love for the man I was about to marry. My vows didn’t come to me easily. I tried to write them weeks in advance but could never put thought to paper. It wasn’t until the night before that all the words came pouring out of me, and truthfully, they were the best vows I could have ever written.

Honoring Loved Ones Who Have Passed With The Bridal Fashion
My late fiancé Clinton (before Chris) passed away almost six years ago. Clinton is tethered to me in a way I can’t explain. He is such an important part of my existence and I am the person Chris fell in love with because of Clinton. I just needed to have a piece of him with me on my wedding day. In honor of Clinton, I wore his great aunt’s light pink double-layered pearl necklace. Putting this on was heartbreaking and mending at the same time. It’s a moment that means so much to me, and I will never forget it. Also, the bracelet wrapped around my bouquet belonged to my husband’s mom, who passed away when Chris was only three years old. This bracelet was given to me by Chris’ godmother, and it’s one of my most treasured belongings. Not having my mother-in-law in my life has left so many holes in my heart and world. I gripped that bracelet and my bouquet as if I was holding her hand. It felt like she was beside me, giving me all the love and comfort I needed and wanted that day. I’ve never met her, but I love her so deeply.

Maximizing Time With Loved Ones By Extending The Celebration
We rented the most extraordinary, jaw-dropping Airbnb in our hometown, which was perfect! Because we didn’t go right back to everyday life, it’s like we got to continue our wedding celebrations, and to top it off, we had our daughter and family members. That meant so much to us there. It was the best decision.
Embracing Being A Pregnant Bride
At first, I was confused about how I felt being eight months pregnant with our second child on our wedding day. It’s something I never dreamt of or envisioned for my wedding. But now, it’s one of my favorite parts. I am so in love and obsessed that our son was there, in my belly, and that I was a glowing pregnant mama bride. I couldn’t imagine it any other way now and just thinking about it makes me feel so smitten.

A Surprise Proposal On The Day Of Their Bird’s Eye Cove Farm Wedding
Chris proposed to me on our wedding day. We have a young daughter together and are expecting our second. Because the diamond for my ring was in Ontario and wouldn’t arrive until two days before the wedding, he couldn’t propose sooner. I had no idea that this was happening–that he was waiting on an heirloom diamond for my engagement ring. The morning of our wedding day, I got called out to the lower balcony of our Airbnb, where Chris was waiting for me. At first, I was confused, and then it all hit me. How could I be so nervous when we were already getting married? But I was. My heart started beating out of my chest as he got down on one knee and made me the funniest and sweetest promises for life.
