Kayla and Adam met on Xbox Live playing Rainbow Six. He lived in Texas, but she drove all the way there to meet him. He took her to his favourite Mexican restaurant and she was so nervous she dumped a glass of water in her lap. Over the next ten years, they built their lives together, relaxing with video games, sitting outside by the fire, and travelling. They welcomed a son and daughter to join them in their adventures. They got engaged, but were just busy enjoying life and taking their time making any plans. One day they received some unsettling news: Kayla’s mom’s cancer was back. Kayla couldn’t imagine her wedding day without her mom by her side every step of the way. They planned their beautiful Elk Ridge wedding for the fall.
All weddings are about family, but Kayla and Adam’s day truly embraced it. Their two-year-old daughter Piper was an adorable flowergirl (although this whole wedding business really messed with her plans to spent Saturday morning watching Paw Patrol with a bowl of goldfish crackers). Their five-year-old son Lukas totally rocked his best man duties, taking his job very seriously all day long before tearing up the dance floor with his grandma at the reception! Adam’s family made the journey from Houston, less than a week after Hurricane Harvey, to be by his side. And Kayla’s mom absolutely lit up the room with her humour, strength and positive energy, making it crystal clear where the rest of her family gets it from.
Kayla and Adam’s Waskesiu wedding day was a true celebration of the family they created and the families they have joined together.
