Leah and Dan were married on a beautiful day in July last year at the gorgeous Hotel Fairmont MacDonald in Edmonton Alberta. This day was everything you would expect from Leah and Dan: a true celebration of love with only the closest family members in attendance. I was lucky to be the only non-family member there!
A few moments that really stand out to me about their day was their first look, the ceremony, and Dan's speech that he wrote for Leah. The first look was so special and such a sweet way to begin the festivities with lots of giggles and admiration of one another just quietly pouring out. The ceremony was simple but beautiful, truly celebrating their history and love for one another. And finally, Dan's speech of true devotion for Leah took her by surprise! (Check out each moment in throughout the entire blog post). It was the perfect way to end the day.
The common thread between all of these moments is the quiet love they share. They are not over-the-top sort of people but rather they have allowed each other to be completely themselves in one another's presence. That is a gift that you can not manufacture, it is just organically created over time, respect and devotion.
Congratulations again Leah and Dan! I am so thankful you included me on your special day!
