Chris & Melissa
Chris and I worked at an English pub downtown together for just over two years. When we finally went on a date and kissed for the first time that night we became inseparable. I had finally found the person I was meant to kiss for the rest of my days. A year went by, and we found out we were pregnant and had our son. We often look back at the time of us working together and the harmless flirting that persisted to this new foundation of love, honesty, and laughter we have formed
The moment he kissed me on our first date.
I was eight months pregnant in July, and Chris took me camping in the mountains in Jasper, AB. He took me to Lake Maligne, and we sat on the rocks watching the water. He walked away for a minute, and I saw him go into his backpack. He came up behind me and gave me the box with the most beautiful ring I have ever seen. He didn't need to say anything because my answer has always been yes.
I ordered a swatch for the Zoey 2.0 dress. When I received it only after a few days, I knew this fabric was legit! The stretchiness and comfortability was exactly what I was looking for.
I was soooo nervous! When I put it on, I bawled my eyes out, of course. It was perfect.

We got married outside at Quarry Lake Park in Canmore, Alberta. The Three Sister Mountains were behind us.
I walked down the aisle to the Elvis cover by Haley Klinkhammer: Can't Help falling in love with you Vance Joy: Your Mess is Mine And we didn't have a reception, we simply went to a pub after!

GET A PLANNER! It was so stress free, not having to worry about a thing!

Congratulations Chris & Melissa!
Wishing you the best today and always.
How did you meet the love of your life?
We went to college together! There was one night where our college put on a stargazing event. We both went and met through mutual friends. After that night, we began talking more and more frequently, studying together, having meals together, we established a really solid friendship before we started dating. We dated for a little over a year before we got engaged. Our dating relationship was really hectic, we finished out college, went to Europe for three months after graduation, he moved to Kauai while I stayed in California for about three months after our trip to Europe. I finally made the move to Kauai at the end of 2018 and he proposed a month later.
How did you come across Wear Your Love?
Pinterest! Years before Dylan and I were even engaged. I had pinned the Ellora dress and it had stolen my heart from the beginning. After getting engaged I spent months trying on gowns, enduring the uncomfortable moments of trying on dresses that everyone else wanted me to try on. I just couldn’t shake the Ellora from my mind, and I knew I had to have it.
