“Justin and I didn’t want a traditional wedding, so we opted to host a daytime event,” Meghan explains. The couple’s ceremony took place first thing in the morning and was followed by a delicious brunch. “We included a personalized crossword puzzle alongside the menu to keep our guests entertained.” The afternoon consisted of all sorts of yard games including croquet, frisknock and horseshoes. The St. Norbert Arts Centre was the perfect venue for the festivities. “We loved the character of the old guesthouse along with the natural beauty of the grounds,” Meghan shares. But above all, Meghan’s most cherished memory of the day is her walk down the aisle. For the bride’s processional, Meghan and Justin chose “Dearest” by Buddy Holly, a song with utmost significance. “I went to Holland for a practicum during my last year of university, and Justin made me a playlist before I left with this song on it. It’s about longing for a lover who is a million miles away,” Meghan concludes.
