BlueBridge Events Centre Wedding | Alicia + Cary


Alicia + Cary shared their beautiful testimonies of their special day.
Alicia- “It was absolutely pouring when we woke up, but it made our morning very calm, quiet and peaceful before we went our separate ways. I felt calm and peace all day. Cary and I had intended not to see one another again until our first look, but the rain pushed Cary’s group close to the main venue, so we actually saw one another on and off throughout the day and it ended up being so special to check-in and see the venue come to life together. All day we had heard how rain on your wedding day brings luck, so now we’ve got bucketsful of luck as we start this next chapter, and got an advance on that luck when the rain stopped and we were able to feel the warmth of the sun as we said our vows.”
Cary- “The ceremony is the event that I keep thinking back to, weeks past the day. I was so nervous standing up at the altar waiting to see Alicia, but all that simply disappeared when I took her hand. After that, I had eyes only for her, and honestly didn’t really notice anyone else throughout the entire ceremony. And the absolute cherry on top of that wonderful experience were the vows. There wasn’t a lot of the wedding that we didn’t plan or talk about together, but our vows were a complete surprise for the other. I definitely couldn’t hold it together reading my vows to her, but I’m happy that she was able to hear those words spoken with my true emotion behind them. Of the ceremony, hearing her vows and her words that she wrote, just for me, while staring into her eyes, is the single moment that permeates every memory that I have of the wedding. Her vows are the foundation and prism that shades and colors the rest of the evening, and it was absolutely perfect.”

Congratulations to the lovely couple!
