Stephanie and Chad met one Saturday night during their second year of University. Stephanie was dancing with friends when Chad approached her. Like a true gentlemen, Chad asked Stephanie if she would like to dance and Stephanie said yes immediately. Even though Stephanie didn’t give Chad her number, he managed to get it and called her a few days later to ask her out for dinner.
Five years later, Chad proposed to Stephanie at 4:30 a.m. inside Pearson Airport while on their way to New York City. After travelling so much together over the years, Chad said, “I couldn’t think of a better way to start our next trip together.”
The bride’s favourite wedding moment was walking into the ceremony room and seeing Chad waiting for her. “Seeing him smile ear to ear made everyone and everything going on around me disappear,” says Stephanie. “It truly felt as if it was just the two of us there in that moment.”
As for the couple’s favourite wedding detail? “If I had to pick one thing that stood out the most, it would be our wedding party and guests,” says Stephanie. “They are all truly beautiful and amazing people and we could not have pulled it off without their love and support.”
