Meet Marilynn and Alex, two of my favourite people! Their first date was an impromptu meet at Starbucks/Chapters. They were supposed to have another more planned out first date, but both we eager, and after all - it was Valentines Day. Must have been a good date, since four short months later, she had a beautiful ring on her finger! Mari dreamed of a wedding near the beach, so a beach wedding Alex gave her. They wed in the late afternoon (after a casual day of playing in the pool!) on the lawn of The Royal Lahaina Resort in Maui overlooking the sand and the Pacific. Her Groom walked her down the isle to calm her nerves. The perfect gesture. The sun shone and the skies were blue. Her son the ring bear, her mom - maid of honour, his dad the Officiant. And then suddenly, they were Mr and Mrs. Toews.
