We LOVED this couple. LO-OVED them.First impressions: The couple came to pick us up at the airport when we arrived in Edmonton. While Cam (the groom) waited in the car, Megan (the bride) came in to get us. All I knew about this couple is that both were lawyers. Naturally I was scanning the airport for a very serious looking woman with a subtle up-do, a grey or black pantsuit and sensible, black high heels. Then I heard "Hi guys!" from across baggage claim. I looked up to see this blonde bombshell with big hair, a tight, bright pink, ruffled dress and super high heels! Not the lawyer I was expecting. WAY better. Then we met Cam. Another not-what-you-would-expect lawyer. Cam has facial hair. Cam looks adorably young for his age. Cam loves the environment. Cam REALLY loves sharks. Cam will save all the sharks.
Besides being an incredibly smart and good looking couple, Megan and Cam are very passionate about helping the environment and helping people. They're one of those couples that make you feel like you've known them forever when you first meet them. It was obvious to us that Megan and Cam are the type of couple that everyone wants a piece of. WE want a piece of them! Megan had 4 very attentive and sweet bridesmaids supporting her all day while Cam had 6 groomsmen and one German doctor supporting him. Their friends really went out of their way to make sure everything was perfect for them and did everything from bringing them snacks to working crowd control at the first-look location.
This wedding was beautiful. The ceremony took place in the foyer of the law building at the University of Alberta where they both went to law school. The isle was lined with balls of baby's breath (Megan brought it BACK) and feathers (which looked awesome AND got stuck to everyone's shoes-including the grooms-which made it extra entertaining for sure!). An excerpt from the children's book 'The Velveteen Rabbit' was read, and the couple exchanged really heart felt vows that made the ceremony that much more special. The reception later followed at the Mayfair Golf and Country Club. Unfortunately for you, you won't get to see any of the reception as there was SO much heart in this wedding that we couldn't even fit the reception into the highlights!
Megan and Cam - we had an INcredible time at your wedding and loved getting to know you. Please call ANYtime you come to Vancouver and we will show you around our giant town. We wish you both all the best in your marriage and in your efforts to save the environment… and sharks.
