Wedding date: August 13, 2011
Wedding theme: Upscale garden
Best moment: “I will never forget as long as I live the moment Justin saw me for the first time. I met him in the woods by a swing my father had made me. He had his back to me until I told him to turn around. And once he did, he almost broke into the ugly cry. The look on his face, in his eyes at that very moment…I will never be able to describe it!” says Melanie.
Favourite detail: “The fact that our ceremony took place at the top of the waterfall, with all of our guests being able to look up and see everything, we knew that each person had a great view and wouldn’t miss anything,” explains Melanie.
Wedding song: “You and Me” by Dave Matthews Band. “The first concert we saw together was Dave in Toronto! It is the best song to describe us… it’s about exactly what it says… “you and me together… we could do anything”… Justin and I know that we can take all of these memories we’ve got and plenty more we are going to make, and turn them into the best story…as long as it’s our story and as long as we have one another. As soon as we both heard this song, we knew it was for us,” says Melanie.
Honeymoon: Prince Edward Island
