A Rustic Autumn Wedding in Okotoks, Alberta


After a week of dating, Kyle convinced his sister to let his new girlfriend, Melissa, join them on a trip to Europe they were planning to go on that spring.  “That trip pretty much sealed the deal for me, I knew Melissa was the one I wanted to be with for the rest of my life,” Kyle shares.

Kyle made it official two years later when he proposed to Melissa with his mother’s engagement ring on a romantic sunset walk.

For their big day, the two decided on a rustic autumn celebration, which featured rich gold and red accents and lots of lovely sunflowers. “Our favorite detail of our wedding was definitely the venue. It was the perfect backdrop for our special day,” Melissa shares.
