When border guards Stephanie and Chris had something to declare, they celebrated a romantic wedding bursting with beautiful details. “I’m known as quite a girly girl and many people are surprised at my profession,” says Stephanie, who always envisioned a timeless wedding. The two were unable to write their own vows for their traditional Catholic mass, so they decided to meet beforehand and exchange love letters instead. A friend sang “Ave Maria” during the ceremony and an Italian opera piece at the reception, where 75 guests (more than a third of whom were officers!) were treated to lobster grilled cheese sandwiches and individual chocolate peanut butter cheesecakes. Stephanie and Chris included their pets in the festivities by donating to a local animal shelter in honour of their friends and family.
