Ben and Sheila first met during high school. "His friends hung out with my friends, so we saw each other quite often," Sheila explains. "It happened to be during grad that I first showed interest in Ben. We went on our first date and it just clicked—I knew he was the man I was going to marry!"
For their wedding, the couple chose a soft colour palette of dusty blue, blush pink and gold. "I chose these colours because May is a rainy season and nothing looks more elegant than soft pastels," Sheila explains. "I saw my flowers for the first time the morning of the wedding—they were perfect and exactly what I wanted!"
Sheila says one of her favourite parts of the entire day was wearing her veil. "It made me feel like a princess. I kept it on all day—I didn’t want to ever take it off! I was so happy with it, and our photographer got some amazing shots," she says.
