about our wedding

We want our day to be mellow, relaxed and simple for everyone. A day filled with the ones we love most. Come as you are - dress however you please - nothing stuffy, overly formal, or uncomfortable required.

The Ceremony- 
Time: 4:00pm
We spend a lot of our days hanging out at Sandy Beach. It's a beautiful park along the Elbow River that offers the perfect getaway from the big city. We all agreed this would be a wonderful place to get married! Our wedding will be officiated by Sue Saunders, a great family friend who is sure to make our special day extra special.

Sandy Beach Park is just off of 50th Avenue and 15a Street SW - drive down the elbow river pathway and look for our signs to point you in the right direction.

PLEASE NOTE: the ceremony will be quick, but it will be outdoors- rain, snow or shine. Please select your party pants with this in mind. Also, the terrain might be a little 'out doorsy', so your footwear choice may want to reflect that.

Finally, the fun part! Right after the ceremony we will hurry on over to the Scandinavian Cultural Hall.
