Larisa and Zach’s Wedding at the Gates
“Hiring Alex to help us with our wedding was truly one of the best investments we made. Alex was able to make planning our Manitoba wedding a breeze, while my partner and I were both living out of province.
She has so many tips and tricks, she is always prompt with email responses when you need her the most and she is just genuinely such a kind person. We would recommend Alex and her company to anyone. Our wedding day was perfect, and Alex definitely played a huge role in making it that way!”
Larisa and Zach tied the knot along side immediate family at The Gates on May 8, 2021. With the COVID-19 pandemic, it was a wild ride getting them to the altar. Like many couples, Larisa and Zach chose to postpone their wedding from 2020 to 2021.
Leading up to the wedding I watched the news like a hawk to see what the Provincial restrictions would be in place. It was a nail biter the week leading up to the wedding. After the wedding rehearsal the officiant Deb and I huddled around my phone to watch the news announcement of impending restrictions. The restrictions announced would devastate the wedding industry from mid-May into June. With the restrictions going into effect on Sunday, Larisa and Zach’s wedding was able to go forward unhindered and they were able to have a beautiful reception dinner for guests.
Families come in all shapes and size. When Larisa and Zach tied the knot, they not only became a family of two, but three. Zach’s son, Maverick was the most fun ring bearer. My favorite part of the wedding was when Larisa and Zach not only said vows to each other, but to Maverick as well.
I know this time has not been easy for couples, but I am so happy that Larisa and Zach were able to celebrate their love with close family!
