Sean and Melissa first met one another in the fall of 2005, while they were both enrolled the University of Victoria's business program. Years later, on the front steps of the Parliament buildings on a crisp winter evening (which was also Melissa's birthday) Sean asked her to be his wife.
They decided on a summer wedding, and held their ceremony on the stunning property at St. Ann's Academy in Victoria. They kept the feel of their big day simple and classic with a gold and white colour palette.
"Our wedding day was filled with laughter and love, but most of all, so much fun!" says Melissa. "There was champagne popping, 12 bridesmaids, a party bus, endless singing and dancing, amazing food, great music, and lots of kissing."
