Stephanie + Chad: To be bound

0

Stephanie and Chad have already gone through many milestones together, including the birth of their son, Ashton. Yet, what they’re about to embark on will be one of their most memorable experiences of them all – marriage.

 

WHAT HAVE BEEN THE MOST EXCITING PARTS OF PLANNING YOUR WEDDING DAY?
“Dreaming of our life together as a married couple. Beyond the venue, the flowers, the food, and the stationary, I think the most exciting part of planning a wedding is planning your life together. Planning to grow old together. Planning our forever.”

HOW DO YOU THINK MARRIAGE WILL CHANGE YOUR RELATIONSHIP?
Steph: “We already feel extremely committed to one another since we have a beautiful son together, so I’m not sure that it will make us more committed. I think becoming parents already did that. To be honest, I’m not sure that our relationship will change much at all. It seems pretty perfect as it is. It will just be nice to share our love with everyone and for us to become bound in a spiritual union.”
Chad: “Steph will have another piece of jewelry that Ashton (our son) and I have to keep track of!”

WHAT DO YOU MOST LOOK FORWARD TO ABOUT YOUR WEDDING?
Steph: “I am probably the most excited about the ceremony and seeing Chad waiting for me at the end of the aisle.”
Chad: “Seeing Steph walk down the aisle.”

WHAT ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT THINGS THAT WILL CREATE A LONG LASTING AND LOVING RELATIONSHIP?
Steph: “I think selflessness is the most important aspect of a marriage. You now have someone that you should always put before yourself, and someone who deserves the world from you. If you’re both selfless in your relationship, it is bound to last. I think that is true for every relationship in your life.”
Chad: “Laughter. Laugher helps. Laughter, support, and more laughter.”

WHO ARE THE VENDORS THAT YOU WILL BE WORKING WITH ON YOUR WEDDING DAY?
“The only vendor that we are sure we want is Forged in the North, the amazing photographers that took these photos. Ryan and Heidi are beyond talented, and some of the kindest people that we’ve met. They don’t just capture images, they capture raw emotions; working with them was incredible. Beyond that we’re not sure, but we think we’d like to have a balloon artist… a balloon artist, festival lights, a campfire, and lots of peonies.”

WHO HAVE BEEN YOUR FAVOURITE WEDDING DRESS DESIGNERS?
“I absolutely love Anna Campbell and Jenny Packham in the designer world. I’m also obsessed with BHLDN’s entire line of dresses. I love anything vintage, lacy, boho, and delicate.”

WHAT SPECIAL WAYS DO YOU EXPRESS YOUR LOVE TO EACH OTHER?
Steph: “I think what makes our engagement so unique is that we already have a two year old together, so one of the most beautiful things that we see from one another is our parenting. Chad is incredibly selfless when parenting, he does everything for our family, and to me, there’s nothing he could say or give me that would show his love more than the way he treats Ashton (our son) and I every single day.”
Chad: “Be thoughtful, supportive, and embrace each other’s interests. With love, comes an open mind.”

WHAT ARE YOUR FAVOURITE WAYS TO SPEND TIME TOGETHER?
“Some of our best days are the days that we don’t leave the house. The days where we spend two hours making breakfast and then watch cartoons in bed together (with our two year old, of course), create tents, play hide-and-seek in the house, and just relax as a family with no pressures. I guess an engagement is very different when you have a toddler running around. But we wouldn’t have it any other way.”

WHAT’S YOUR RELATIONSHIP ADVICE FOR COUPLES PLANNING THEIR SPECIAL DAY?
“Try to focus on what a wedding truly is, and don’t get lost in the details. Enjoy the process. I am an artist, so I’m obsessed with everything beautiful and a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to planning events. It really has been important for me to take a step back and remember that this is more than a wedding. A wedding is one day, but a marriage is a lifetime.”

WHAT’S THE BEST RELATIONSHIP ADVICE ANYONE HAS GIVEN YOU?
Steph: “Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible”
Chad: “Have fun growing together.”
