For their summer celebration, Dana and Brett settled on a country wedding with bright pops of colour. The couple started their day off with a heartfelt ceremony at Bawlf Lutheran Church filled with memorable moments. “One of our best moments was having our five-year-old daughter, Chloe, hold the rings on her necklace, then bring them up to the altar for us as we said our vows,” Dana shares. She admits that another highlight was the salute she and Brett were given by Brett’s coworkers during their recessional. “It was amazing to walk out of the church and have the entire firefighters’ staff give us an honourguard to walk through,” she explains.
The couple complemented their country wedding with a reception filled with rustic decor and lovely blue accents. Dana admits her sweet table was definitely a reception focal point. “Our cake was exactly what we wanted and just looked stunning. The candy bar was a huge hit and we worked really hard to make it look fancy and authentic,” she explains.
