Kyle and I met online 6 years ago! We talked for what seemed like forever! After I got enough courage to finally meet up with him, we have been inseparable ever since. We had been dating for about 3 years before Kyle proposed to me! It was the end of October and we were carving pumpkins with his family. Knowing that Halloween is my favourite time of year, Kyle had something pretty amazing up his sleeve that night!

When it came time to set our pumpkins up outside to light them, I was super excited and couldn’t wait to be outside! Kyle and his sister kept trying to get me to go back in to get shoes and a jacket, but I was stubborn and kept saying I was fine, I could see Kyle was getting a little annoyed so I went in for about a second! Luckily in that time Kyle had snuck an extra pumpkin on the porch! As I walked outside I noticed the pumpkin and stepped down from the porch to see it. The pumpkin was carved to read “Chelsea will you marry me?” and as I turned to look at Kyle he was down on one knee! It was the best moment and I was completely surprised! I started the wedding planning that night!

I chose to go to a small boutique called Heirlooms Bridal in Dundas, Ontario! I was there for about 30 mins, and when I tried on third dress, I knew it was the one!

We chose to have our wedding in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico with our closest friends and family! The wedding week was full of laughs and sunshine, we couldn’t have asked for better weather that whole week!

When it came to our wedding day I was full of emotions! I lost my mom when I was really young and not having her be a part of such a special day was really emotional for me, knowing she was there in spirit put me at ease and I couldn’t wait to marry Kyle! I was a blubbering mess trying to keep it together as I walked down the aisle! I finally looked up and noticed that Kyle was crying too and I remember thinking how much I love him!

The ceremony was quick and ended with champagne on the beach – we followed with pictures and an amazing reception at one of the restaurants on the resort! Everything about it was perfect and everything we ever wanted! Kyle and I are coming up on our 2nd year of marriage with a baby on the way! To me that is a perfect love story!
