Wedding: Katie & Sheila

From the brides: After a crazy year of being hounded and ultimately outed by our conservative university (where we met!), we finally decided to show the world that love truly does win. Sheila had to go back to Canada for the summer due to immigration issues, but before she left, she proposed to Katie by a trickling stream with an opal ring from Etsy. The plan was to be married in August upon Sheila’s return to the States, and when Katie came up to Canada to visit, she surprised Sheila with the most tenderhearted, gorgeous, sandy-beach, ocean-side proposal. We both finally had our special rings and were officially, 100% engaged.

As mature college students, our budget was tight, but our wedding turned out simplistically beautiful. Our church family rallied around us, and friends and a little bit of family from far and wide came to support us and surround us with love on our special day. We couldn’t have asked for a sweeter group of people around us and had so much fun dressing up in colors while our bridesmaids wore white. We just don’t do things by the book.

Looking back, all we can see is the joy, even in the midst of the family chaos around us and the challenges we have and will face. We love each other more than ever and are so excited to spread that love.
