It was Kelly and Justin’s main wedding day mission to have a fun day with family and friends without breaking the bank. Considering they managed to come in under budget, I would say – mission accomplished!

Bride, Kelly, has shared the details of her big day… 

The Proposal 

“We were in Wanaka – New Zealand. Justin thought it would be a great idea to walk up a mountain for our 9 year anniversary at -1 degrees. I wasn’t impressed and let him know about it all the way up. When we finally reached the top Justin proposed.”

True Love

“We met in highschool and have been together for 11 years. Justin always makes me laugh. We couldn’t imagine being with anyone else.”
