Nick is the most hardworking and strongest man I have ever met.

Chapter 1.

Once upon a time there were two beautiful people and one day they met each other...


Courtney:


We met on the doorstep of the apartment complex we lived in. His best friend and best man at our wedding insisted I gave Nick my number. Guess what...Three years later we moved into the next building over in an apartment together.


Chapter 2. The-Sparkle-Moment.

The sparkle appeared at that moment when we started traveling together and seeing new places, we took dreams we had on our own and made them into something absolutely special together.

Chapter 3. "Will you marry me?"

Courtney: We were in St. Lucia thinking about what excursions we wanted to do. Nick suggested we hike Gros Piton which takes about 3 hours to hike to the peak, however you have to have a guide and it was somewhat more expensive than what we wanted to pay. I told him it was a once-in-a-lifetime moment and we should do it if it was on his bucket list. So we decided to do it and Nick booked the excursion.


That morning we packed our bag with lots of snacks (I'm a type one diabetic), waters and sunscreen. I ate about 80 grams worth of carbohydrates and didn't think I'd make it to the top with my blood sugars dropping frequently. We passed many groups who were coming down and Nick asked every single one of them if they made it to the top, nobody we passed had made it. However, three hours after we started our climb, we made it to the top. At the top of Gros Piton Nick got down on one knee and asked me to marry him.


It was the most beautiful proposal I could have ever asked for. I was so elated that I had no issues getting down the mountain and wound up having to save the little water we had left for him. I survived on pure adrenaline for the way down.

Chapter 4. The Wedding


We love modern farmhouse/ rustic style with a touch up of classics. So I knew as soon as we got engaged that I wanted a rustic but modern venue.

As soon as I saw The Tannery Barn I knew it was my venue.

I had seen the burgundy and blush color palette and just fell in love.



The wedding dress was another easy choice for me, I cried as soon as they put it on me.

When they told me to try more dresses after I had found the one I was so stiff and disappointed until they put me back in the dress that I had loved.

These three choices were the easiest for me during wedding planning.


Seeing all of our loving family and friends that joined us was the most exciting part of the wedding! Many of our family is spread out, some of them a 6- or 12-hour drive away from us. Having everyone in one place specifically for us was absolutely magical





Dear Courtney & Nick, We're incredibly honoured to witness the celebration of your unique love story and capture your


Happily-Ever-After.


Fairytales are real.


Sincerely yours,
