A Whimsical Scottish Wedding in Hamilton, Ontario

  |   By Lisa Perri

Rebeca and Ed hit it off when Rebeca was an EMT student assigned to Ed’s ambulance station. The couple endured a long-distance relationship, with Rebeca in Mississauga, Ontario and Ed in Calgary, Alberta. The pair made it work with constant visits back and forth across the country. One evening while returning home from work, an unsuspecting Rebeca was shocked to come home to Ed, who she believed was back in Alberta, standing in her kitchen. “I couldn't believe he was there! He dropped down to one knee and began a speech he had practiced over and over again,” recalls Rebeca.

While the day was outfitted in elegant black and white damask, it was the personal details the couple included in their celebration that truly stood out. The men donned traditional Scottish kilts and revealed superhero shirts under their fancy garb. As a nod to their medical careers, the couple made "first aid" tins as guest favours and the wedding cake topper was designed to look like the couple dressed for their big day.
