About the couple
Bride: Laurie Karras
Groom: Adam McLeod
How they met: “We met during the summer of 2007 when I was living in Regina and Adam was a soldier stationed at the Canadian Forces Base in Shilo, Manitoba,” explains Laurie.
Engagement story: “Adam was deployed to Afghanistan during the winter of 2008 and we decided to meet in Bali during his leave,” Laurie recalls. “Adam met me at the airport and we were obviously ecstatic to see one another after being separated for months. The whole taxi ride to our resort we kept looking at one another and laughing and giggling as we were so happy to be together once again. Once we checked into our resort and Adam broke out a bottle of Dom Pérignon to celebrate our reunion. Adam kept walking around nervously and out of nowhere suddenly got down on one knee and asked me to marry him.”
