Marissa & Mike

How did you meet?

We met in university almost 10 years ago. Although he did not attend the same university as me, we had many mutual friends and he would come visit often. We were friends for a few years before we started dating.

When did you know he was the one?

There was always something about him that was special, and for some reason I always had that feeling we would end up together. They say “you know when you know” and the first time I kissed him I knew he was the one.

Where did you fall in love with your dress and why?

Pearl & Dot Bridal Boutique in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. I had envisioned myself wearing something completely different. I tried on what I thought I wanted with no luck, until one of my girlfriends who knows me best said “I want to see you in something more classic: no lace, no bead work, and something a bit more fitted”. When I put Harper on and turned around everyone was speechless and had tears in their eyes, my mom even chimed in and said “that’s the one, start the car”. Harper was perfect, the way she hugged my curves and extenuated my features with the button detail and low cut front, sexy but oh so elegant. I loved her!

Where did you go to Honeymoon?

We flew to the UK and spent a couple of days on the coast in Brighton, we then flew to Italy and back packed down to Sorrento, the Amalfi Coast, and Rome for almost 2 weeks. It was dreamy!
