Peter proposed to Elisabeth at four o’clock in the morning on Christmas eve after the two came home late from a family party. “I was a bit sick with the flu, and was really tired and a bit grumpy,” Elisabeth recalls. Peter asked if she was too tired for her gift, and when she said wasn’t, he led her to their Christmas tree where he asked Elisabeth to close her eyes. “I sensed he was getting down on one knee and knew what was about to happen,” she says. Elisabeth opened her eyes to see Peter with a big smile on his face asking her to be his wife.
The couple hosted their special day at Baie de Beauport, where 150 guests celebrated the two surrounded by charming and rustic décor. Candles inside Mason jars alongside simple glass vases filled with roses adorned the tables while white paper lanterns hung from the rafters. Photos of the couple together were displayed on a clothesline, which added a beautiful and personalized touch to their reception. “The day was simple but magical,” says Elisabeth.
