Melissa and Martin have overcome many obstacles on their way to their beautiful Rocky Mountain Wedding at Canmore's Silvertip Resort. Their first obstacle was themselves, because they weren't interested in being setup by mutual friends. After Melissa was eventually convinced she told her friends they could give Martin her contact information and then excitedly awaited his message on Facebook. Unfortunately this lead to another obstacle, a $400 phone bill, because she excitedly checked her phone multiple times and racked up roaming charges while in the United States for a concert!
After that they had to overcome Melissa being a cat person and Martin a dog person. Easily solved by just having two pets! Then they grew stronger through a move from Winnipeg to Calgary.
They even got through the major obstacle of Martin being a huge football fan. Melissa watched YouTube videos to learn the rules and intricacies of football in order for them to watch the NFL together on Sundays! She now apparently knows the sport as well as Martin and even loved her NFL themed proposal that came with the help of the Huston Texans defensive line! (Martin's cousin is a defensive end for the Texans)
Through all these trying times Melissa and Martin have being such a strong couple who do an exceptional job of making each other happy.
Their beautiful wedding day at Silvertip Resort in Canmore was the perfect day they deserved. Perfect weather, kind and loving family members filling key roles to make the wedding day run smoothly and, of course, the majestic Rocky Mountains all around them!
I wish you all the best Melissa and Martin and I hope you love this little preview as much as I loved putting it together!
