One year ago, today, Nexxis and Andrew got married...
A beautiful wedding at the Hotel El Dorado in Kelowna BC
With sunglasses as favors for the rooftop ceremony, to a custom crafted paper flower LOVE marquee - this wedding was filled with fun details that brought the ambiance of the El's vintage charm and the brides desire for country rustic elements together in sweet simple harmony.
What I admire about Nexxis & Andrew runs deep - I have the utmost respect and appreciation for who these two are as young adults. And I say 'young adults' with awe for how young they actually were when planning their wedding, but without any tone or implication from the wisdom of my old-ass years.
During the planning process, I had assumed these two were in their mid to late twenties. They had an amazing (at the time, 2 year old) daughter, plans for building a house, were hard workers, and good solid country people with smart heads on their shoulders. It came as a complete shock when Andrew one day mentioned he knew my nephew - that they graduated high school together (wait for it)...in 2013 !!
Flash forward 1 year...
This couple now has 2 lovely beautiful daughters. Has just completed building their new home. And are clearly in love with a strong sense of family and real life values. Something we should all take lesson from.
Happy Anniversary Nexxis & Andrew!
