i can only imagine what it might feel like to watch as the person you love walks towards you on such a significant day… does time slow down? does it stop completely for that second when you make eye contact? it’s a beautiful moment that might pass in an instant, yet last for a lifetime.
jan and heather celebrated an intimate and memorable wedding this summer at copper point resort in invermere. they invited their most important people to share in a beautiful ceremony and a fabulous celebration. Lucky in love wedding design was there to help coordinate the details and ensure that the day ran smoothly. Leanne brooks always does a such a great job, it was a pleasure working with her on jan and heather’s wedding day.
i was only there for a short time during this special day, but it was enough to hear just how much jan and heather are loved by one another, by their kids and by their families and friends. i was immediately touched by the way both jan and heather were walked down to the ceremony site with their son and their daughter on either arm. everyone was quite emotional as they approached from opposite sides of the opal patio and met in the middle of the aisle.
both jan and heather were absolutely aglow and looking beautiful. it was obvious that this wedding has been a long time coming but i also got the sense that the timing was perfect. they had decided to get married on the third day of the seventh month at 5:00pm. this was because 7:35pm was the time on the clock when they realized that this was it… they were in love… so 7-3-5 became a precious symbol of love, of commitment and of life together.
the ceremony included a vow that was shared between the two families, where the children of both jan and heather agreed to love and honour one another as part of this family. it was really lovely to see the kids standing up for jan and heather. they looked so proud of their moms.
jan and heather, thank you for sharing your wedding day with me. thank you for asking me to capture this moment in time for you and thank you for allowing me to see just how beautifully you have brought your families together. i wish you so much love, joy and happiness for years to come.
