Michelle + Emerson
How did you meet?
We met when I was a cocktail waitress and he was a patron at a popular steakhouse in Victoria, BC. I wasn’t his server but he asked my coworker who I was (he caught my eye as well), and then I joined him at the bar for a drink once my shift was over. This was the night of his 30th birthday and we ended up spending the entire weekend together. The rest is history.
When did you know they were the one?
I knew there was something special about him the night I met him. After we spent the weekend together when we first met, I called my mom and told her that I think I just met my future husband.
What are your three favourite attributes of your partner?
His sense of humour, how genuine he is and how fun-loving he is.
Who proposed and how?
He proposed to me in Banff after dinner one night. We went snowboarding that day and spent the night in Banff. We ended up getting married in Banff.
Where did you fall in love with your dress and why?
I came across Scottie V2 and MWL on social media. I wanted a dress that included pearl details, since pearls were my mom’s favourite (she passed away from cancer in 2019) and I fell absolutely in love with the pearl stitching on the Scottie V2. I was visiting my best friend on Vancouver Island (which is where I met my husband) one weekend and she suggested we go to a bridal shop where they carried MWL since I had my eye on Scottie V2. It was the last dress I tried on that day (saved the best for last) but once I tried it on, I knew it was the one. It’s reminds me of my mom and that’s very special.
What was the best moment for you at your wedding?
When we were announced husband and wife. It was time to celebrate and enjoy our day with our guests!
What were your favourite details?
The beautiful scenery of Banff and the perfect weather we had that day.
What advice would you tell other brides?
Have fun and don’t stress about things out of your control. The big day goes by SO fast so enjoy every minute of it.
