For Alanna and Ryan, there was no doubt they wanted to use Alanna's favourite colours for their summer wedding. "All my friends and family know I love black, but I knew I had to soften our wedding palette," Alanna explains. "I chose pink and gold as our wedding colours to create a classic look."
The bridesmaids’ dresses were gold, but Alanna didn't know that Ryan’s suit jacket would also be gold. "He kept it a secret until days before the wedding," she smiles.
One of Alanna's most memorable moments was entering the ceremony room. "It was breathtaking," Alanna says. "I can still recall how I felt and remember what I saw as the doors opened. We had so many candles along the aisle, which created a cozy and romantic atmosphere, and the room was filled with our closest family and friends. I felt so much love."
Alanna says the speeches were definitely another highlight of the night. "It was evident that everyone put a lot of time and thought into them, and had gathered all our most special, funny and important moments together," Alanna says. "I remember looking around and taking everything in as they were speaking—the decor, the laughter—and everyone was having fun, which was our main priority for the night."
