“We both decided to go to university in Nova Scotia and within a month of school starting, we were officially dating,” Danielle recalls. “After graduating, we went to tour Europe for eight weeks before settling down in Toronto, but by then we had gotten a serious travel bug.”
Regarding the proposal, Danielle explains that Tyler’s parents planned a family trip for a month to Italy. “We decided to spend a week on our own on a small romantic island. As soon as we arrived, we went for dinner. After that, we walked to the end of the pier and when we were ready to turn back, I was shocked to see him down on one knee. I barely gave him time to ask before I started saying ‘yes’,” she admits.
“We really didn’t want to have a dreary winter wedding and started thinking of some cool destinations. We realized we could really do some unique things with a winter wedding and having it on a three-day weekend would give our guests a mini vacation in Mont Tremblant,” Danielle says. “Our wedding was hands down the greatest weekend of our lives. All of our best friends and family were with us and we couldn’t have asked for anything more. We wanted to show our family and friends a good time and thank them for travelling so far.”
“Tyler and I quit our jobs and went on a four-month-long honeymoon tour around Asia. We’re not headed back to Toronto after we’re done travelling, but to Victoria to make a new home out west,” explains Danielle.
