This mini celebration was part of a pop-up chapel event, in which several couples get married in the same space, with the same décor, throughout the day. It’s perfect for couples who want an intimate day to share with their closest family and friends.
Growing together: “Our love story can be wrapped up in two words: spontaneity and ambition,” says Keri. “We want to experience everything together and we want to push each other to be growing constantly.Throughout our three years of dating, I have graduated university, we have taken several trips chasing after good memories, gotten a couple matching tattoos, adopted a pup, bought a van to road trip where we can and moved across Canada.”
Favourite detail: The tiniest detail was the best of the day: a small pin on Brandie’s suit, with their dad’s face. He passed recently and it was a special way to have him as part of the celebration.
Make it you: Keri says, “I think with every decision made, we asked ourselves: is this us? We wore what we wanted, invited who we wanted, made sure to include everything that mattered to us. We had our guests dress in rock/punk aesthetic for us and had our party at an arcade bar.”
Wives: Keri says, “The best part of the day was getting coffee and tattoos after the ceremony. It was the first thing we did as wives, and it was just so authentically us.”"
