I woke up this morning to a wonderful email from Wedding Bells magazine . I was thrilled to discover that the editors (who now hold a warm place in my heart) had just featured one of my weddings!!
Dallas and Todd were married July 25, 2010 at the  Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel. It was an amazingly beautiful wedding full of the regality reserved for royal couples.
Todd was so handsome in his Royal Canadian Mounted Police red serge, Dallas so beautiful in her Maggie Sottero gown. Dallas' father, a retired Vancouver Police officer proudly escorted his daughter down the aisle.

A Gorgeous Red and White Wedding

I asked them how they met....
She said: "Todd and I met at St. Paul's Hospital in Van. I was working ER and he was doing security prior to getting on the RCMP. I walked up to him and told him I needed the patient restrained and he said no problem, then told me he'd seen my profile on facebook. At the time I had a picture of myself in this red turtleneck and braids from when I was about 6 years old. I told him to add me and the rest is history.........
I think what attracted me to him was that he was a nice guy. Here was actually this really sweet guy. I loved that and loved his eyes.
He said: "I had seen her working before in the ER and knew her name, thought she was really good looking and saw she was friends with some of the same people on Facebook. As Dallas mentioned her little girl picture with pigtails was on the site and thought it was hilarious that someone would put their childhood photo on there so let her know that I saw it. She said to add her, I said I would when I got home, she said, "What you'll poke me and I won't even feel it..." and well as she mentioned, the rest is history. I really love her smile and her sassy, witty humour and demeanour.

I know you were curious to see the photo!
