A Modern Winter Wedding In Alberta

  |  By Virginia Mashingaidze

Alberta wedding- bride and groom

Su and Sean first crossed paths during a 6am spin class. For weeks they saw each other around the gym, until Sean finally took matters into his own hands. "Sean found out my name through a mutual friend and he was able to message me through Facebook," says Su. "After exchanging several messages over a period of weeks, we decided to go on a date."

When it came time to pop the question, Sean had another family member deliver the ring. "Bruce, our dog, slowly strolled out to the couch with a ribbon and black box tied around his collar," remembers Su. "Bruce played his role to perfection, delivering the ring with conviction."

For their big day, the couple decided on a modern winter celebration. For their ceremony, a stunning red carpet lined the aisle and Su wowed guests in a dramatic, tiered Lazaro gown with a jeweled belt.

Following their wedding ceremony, Su and Sean got the experience of a lifetime braving the frigid temperatures to capture some gorgeous wedding photos. "It was magical and felt like we were on a movie set walking through deep snow," says Su.
