If you had told teenage me that after getting married I would be moving abroad to live in a van with my husband… I’m pretty sure I would have done whatever I could to speed up the process.

Despite everything, the one thing that keeps us grounded and transforms our little van into a home, is the unbreakable love we share for one another.

A week into our road trip we found our dream wedding venue, a stunning beach house in Islamorada, Florida, and from then on out all arrangements, planning, crafting, even dress shopping, had to be done from the van..! I even hand/van-made our wedding invitations on a rainy day in Montreal using Canadian maps and watercolors!

Between the two of them some of the sweetest moments of our lives were captured and for that, we are forever grateful. So, without any further hesitation, we present to you a special collection of memories from our very special day, from sunrise to moon fall:

Rain, wind and freezing temperatures, it was completely out of the norm of the perfect blue and 72 weather Floridians live for in January. With the entire weekend’s events being outside on the beach, our wedding planner + family nearly begged us to get a tent, but after many prayers and the help of a few hopeful friends, we decided to go “no tent” and hope for the best. Well, the best is what we got:

Drew and I reminded each other to be conscious of this throughout the day, making sure to honor and feel every ounce of God’s grace and goodness given.

It truly allowed the night to evolve into endless fairytale it was meant to be.

We debated what to do for a while, but with the help of Terry Joe Banjo, our incredibly multi-talented Canadian rafting guide (whom we had met just six months prior, post here), we enjoyed a night of acoustic guitar/ukelele/banjo for all of our sweetest moments, mixed with an awesome DJ who played our carefully-chosen playlist. The results were EPIC. Terry Joe didn’t stop there though, he went above and beyond, leaving us starstruck, surprising us with the most thoughtful of gifts, The Ballad of Mr and Mrs Adventure:

Terry Joe also helped me surprise Drew by playing the guitar while I serenaded him with the beginning of our first dance song, La Vie en Rose.

Weddings are truly powerful, an incredible collection of people, passion, hope, faith and love all wrapped into one little night… take little moments for yourself and together. Cherish all of it.
