Happily Ever After is the perfect description of Abby and Braeden’s wedding at Arbutus Ridge Golf Course. They met in Schladming, Austria, 6,000 miles from home in the Fall 2017 season of Tauernhof Bible School. They bonded on a missions trip to Romania where they saw each other shine in leadership & service and they continued to grow closer over the course of the semester. They were both smitten with each other & began a long distance relationship after the school was over, Only eight months later,  Abby moved to Calgary from Victoria to attend the University of Calgary, and that Christmas, Braeden popped the question at Butchart Gardens in Victoria.

Newlyweds on foot bridge in garden of red and yellow bushes on Vancouver IslandThe ceremony was the epitome of a beautiful garden wedding.  Gorgeous colours surrounded the bride and her father as they walked down towards the waiting guests. The couple stood before a naturally beautiful backdrop of mountains and water which was framed by a wooden arch covered in floral. 

The bride wore a spectacular white gown with flowing train and swirling skirt complemented by a bouquet of white roses. The groom sported a grey suit and was surrounded by his dapper groomsmen. 

The newlyweds celebrated their nuptials with a walk along the ocean where Braedon and Abby were able to capture some epic photo moments. The reception was filled with lovely moments and fun filled memories. Congrats to this Happily Ever After couple!
