Brad & Rose | Elegant Saltlik Calgary Wedding

Brad and Rose met through their mutual friend Cheryl, now dubbed "the matchmaker",  from Toronto. After an incredible first date and then another, where they talked for hours, suddenly- Brad fell off the face of the earth (well, not actually, I like hyperbole) and Rose, disappointed, wrote him off; so much so that she deleted him out of her phone! A few months later, Brad got the courage to message Rose again. 

And like they say, the rest is history! There was no question, they knew they found their person in each other. When Brad proposed he sent Rose on a little treasure hunt. At the end was their little friend (Malcolm the stuffed hippo) and a tiffanys bag. Brad then came out of hiding and proposed to Rose in their home. 

Their wedding day was full of so much incredible laughter with family and friends coming from all over the world; south africa, hong kong, vancouver island, new york, houston... It was a bit chilly for March but they took the weather with stride and had their first look outside down-town. Rose teary-eyed and Brad with the biggest grin on his face, they just couldn't wait for that moment where they got to walk back down the aisle together officially as husband and wife. 

The evening was full of memorable and hilarious speeches, Rose yelling "holla!" with her hands over her head like the "preach" emoji and keeping their speech short so they could really get the party started and start dancing the night away.

Rose and Brad cherish their friends and family so closely, you can really feel that when you are around them, whomever crosses their path is drawn in like a magnet to their full-of-life energy and down-to-earth personalities. Brad brings a soft side to Rose's fiery charismatic nature and Rose brings out Brad's enthusiasm and zest for life. Together their value of family is at the forefront and together they would do anything for the people they love. They wonderfully balance each other out while simultaneously coming together over the things that matter most. 

Congratulations again you two! Thank you for inviting us in to your circle and for treating us like family, we were so honoured! xo
