A Surprise Wedding!

Last Saturday we got to witness a beautiful union of one of the happiest, most head-over-heels, in love couples, that we have ever seen.

Earlier this year Keith surprised Fanta with the most fairy tale proposal ever.  She didn't even know she had time off work, let alone that she was headed to Paris for the surprise of a lifetime.  It was a masterful plan that Keith executed flawlessly, and she figured she had to surprise him right back.  He definitely met his match with his sassy, quick-witted little bride; they couldn't be more perfect for each other.

October 14th - he thought they were eloping, but really Fanta had planned a surprise wedding

She arranged for friends and family to meet at Peg's Kitchen (owned by Keith's parents, and a gem of a restaurant/ store/ catering company in the city).  We got onto a charter bus, and made our way to The Hotel Saskatchewan, where Keith and Fanta were on the steps.  We pulled up and Fanta had Keith look toward the vehicle, as family and friends started to pile out.  He was so surprised and shocked; it was awesome! 

She was initially in the dress that he had proposed in, and he didn't know she had a wedding dress.  She lagged behind a bit, as people kept Keith moving to the Blue Room in the hotel.  Fanta went to change, without Keith realizing, and when she walked down the aisle in her dress, his reaction was priceless.  Luckily someone captured his reaction on video 💜

The ceremony was short and sweet, and allllllllll about the vows, which made my heart smile.

Their wedding reminded me so much of when Christopher and I eloped.  You could feel their incredible excitement, and the love radiating from both of them.  The vows were raw, sincere, and from the heart.  You could tell that they were present in the moment, and that the words they were saying, and the promises they were making, were all that mattered.

Their words and their joy brought tears to my eyes; nothing makes me happier than true love, and it's beyond evident that what Fanta and Keith have is true, and will be everlasting.

There were a few dances, and some hors d'oeuvres (they were fantastic), and all in all it was a lovely evening celebrating a beautiful couple.

Congratulations Fanta and Keith! 

We couldn't be happier for you, and we wish you a lifetime of wild, intense, knock-your-socks-off, giddy, mad-about-you kind of love 💕😍💑
