A Romantic Outdoor Wedding at Herald Provincial Park in British Columbia, Canada

Natalie (30, a Specialty Leasing Manager) and James (29, an HSE Manager) met through mutual friends. Seven years later, James proposed to Natalie on a hot air balloon! "He is always straight to the point and it was a simple 'Will you marry me?' and I of course said yes while bawling my eyes out," Natalie recalls. The couple got married at Herald Provincial Park, and made a pit stop at a local ice cream shop between the ceremony and reception for a sweet pre-reception treat. "It was so nice to have some ice cream once all the nerves were settled and we just relaxed," Natalie says. After ice cream, the wedding party headed back to the park for a BBQ dinner. Natalie loves the color pink, so pink dominated many aspects of the decor--from the pink kissing balls to the bridesmaid dresses. Her bouquet also had pink gerbera daisies as well as blue spider mums--a flower that was always in the bouquets James gave to Natalie when the pair was dating. The couple left their wedding with a brilliant sparkler sendoff.
