Any other unique details or stories about your wedding/love story you want to tell us?

"When we met at the party 11 years ago, I was instantly attracted to him like it was love at first sight. Me and a friend got into his car to go up to the store, and when he looked at me, he immediately smiled and blushed away all coy like. That is why I started off my vows with, "When I saw you I fell in love, and you smiled because you knew." In his vows, he also referred to love at first sight upon meeting me, and how he knew I was something special."

One of our favourite things about Celine + Nate's wedding was all the DIY touches.  Her attention to all the little details shined through on her wedding day and we adore it.

How did your fiancé propose? (from the brides point of view)

"It was a typical night, nothing much going on. We were cooking pancakes together for dinner, laughing and enjoying each others company. He wasn't acting out of the ordinary, so I didn't suspect anything. After we were finished eating, I got up to start cleaning but he suggested that we just sit together and talk (this is when I started to feel something was up, cause normally after supper he would just go and play his video games). I sat back down, and he got quiet saying, he had something to tell me, but don't know how. I repeated "What" a few times feeling anxious as he was still quiet. In a flash, he pulled out a box from his sweater, placed it in front of me, opened it and asked if I would marry him. My body was in such a state of shock, that it felt like I was having an out of body experience. Still in shock mode, I kept saying "OMG, are you for real" before saying yes, of course gushing and squealing."

How did you propose? (from the grooms point of view)

"We were having pancakes for supper, I had the ring in my pocket. After dinner, I told Celine that I had something to tell her, but that I didn't know how. I got really nervous, pulled out the ring and asked Celine to marry me all in one motion. When she was done saying "Are you for real" She said yes."
