Tanis and Dennis are Fun In the Sun Weddings newest Newlyweds! This Bride and Groom might be a case for both ‘Love At First Sight’ AND ‘Love Conquers All’.
Here is their story…..
Tanis and Dennis met five years ago in a local bar, and the bride tells us she had joked with her friend at the time that he might be ‘The One’. Apparently, she was right.
A month after they began dating, Tanis became seriously ill with Meningitis, which left her with complications. This came back to haunt them when, shortly following the birth of their son, Ryley, she found herself in and out of the hospital for six months, and ultimately fighting her life in the ICU.
The Bride battled back with Dennis by her side and the unwavering support of her friends and family. Tanis tells us,
“This wedding was more than a union, it was a celebration of the journey we overcame together!”
Dennis proposed to Tanis in the spectacular Banff National Park, in Alberta, Canada. He threw her off the scent of a proposal by scheduling a surprise weekend getaway for her birthday. They pulled into a beautiful horse stable, where they had a white carriage for two awaiting their arrival. Tanis thought this was all set up for her birthday, so they headed along the river and there Dennis got on one knee and surprised the heck out of her by proposing!
Then they had a beautiful weekend celebrating their engagement, and the wedding planning began!
After a day of dress shopping with her favorite people around town in a motor home, Tanis still came up empty. She finally said YES to the dress a few months later at Bliss Bridal.
The bride and groom knew they wanted a destination wedding, and settled on a ‘Stay-cation’ event at the spectacular Watermark Beach Resort in Osoyoos, BC. And we were very fortunate to be asked to make a return trip to the homeland to capture their special day.
Their wedding went off without a hitch, and the couple sends a very special thank you to Lara Taylor of Coco Events and Weddings for her personal touches, time and effort.
We asked Tanis what was most important to her and Dennis when planning their wedding, and she told us that they wanted their wedding to be fun for everyone, with happy tears and lifelong great memories made. Everyone had a blast!
Tanis and Dennis, a huge congratulations to you both! We wish you every happiness, and good health, as you start this next chapter of your lives together!
