2022 spoiled Eastern Ontario with an abundance of gorgeous summer days. Kelly and Lucas chose the 30th of July to say their “I dos”, in a gorgeous ceremony at Kelly’s parents’ home in Perth, ON.
Kelly and Lucas, both from Perth, actually met while they attended the University of Guelph.
“We both knew who each other was, and had mutual friends, but we didn’t meet until we were at University.” They would become and remain friends during University and met up for a drink in Perth the year after they finished University. Kelly and Lucas began dating shortly after, in 2011.

It was another really nice personal touch.” When discussing the flowers that would be included on the pieces, Kelly and Krista both agreed that the arrangement of the flowers on it would need to make a statement. Krista designed the arch pieces to make sure that they stood out against the trees and lush greens that lined the
