The Proposal
“It was a beautiful September weekend when Casey proposed to me,” Cheryl says.

“We were up at Casey's parent’s cottage and we had gone fishing with Casey’s dad early that morning. Casey's dad kept saying, "this is a day you'll never forget."

“I was thinking he meant because it was so beautiful and the fish were plentiful – little did I know he knew about the upcoming proposal.” Read Cheryl and Casey's full proposal story

The Wedding Attire
Cheryl’s ivory satin A-line gown, designed by Essence of Australia, featured a strapless curved neckline, fitted bodice with corset back and chapel train. The gown was adorned with Swarovski crystals, diamante flowers and scattered beads and pearls.

Casey wore a black tux with peak lapel, two button black vest and a ivory dress shirt with an apple red fusion necktie.

The Most Memorable Moment
Cheryl says they had the most fun driving around Ottawa in their rented limo bus with the bridal party; five bridesmaids and four groomsmen and the photographers.

The couple had photographs taken at the Rideau Canal, The Canadian War Museum, Parliament Hill and Confederation Park with ice sculptures.

The most unexpected moment was when Cheryl's dad sat down after saying his speech at the reception and had a heart attack!!

Casey, being a paramedic had many friends who attended the wedding who were doctors and physician assistants – thank goodness – and Cheryl’s dad was well taken care of.

He did leave the wedding in an ambulance but Cheryl is happy to report he is now in good health, after having an angiogram and two stents put in to repair his blockages.  

Wedding Advice
Cheryl says, “Don't stress over the small details because no one will notice they're missing except you!”  

“Walk down the aisle slowly and enjoy it,” she says.

 “And finally, take a moment to take it all in, especially when sitting at the head table. Take a mental picture of your reception hall and all the people around you.”
