Anne Marie + Jamie
Both Houston residents with Western Canadian roots, Anne Marie and Jamie met by chance at a backyard barbecue in Spring. “Toward the end of the barbecue, he got my number and told me he’d ‘call me tomorrow.’ At exactly 12:00 am the next morning, I received a phone call from an unknown number. When I answered, it was Jamie. His words exactly: ‘It's tomorrow.’” From then on, the couple was inseparable, returning, eventually, to Western Canada, to wed at the beautiful Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel, joined by 165 of their closest friends and family. With its bagpipe serenade (the bride surprised her Scottish groom for the ceremony), late-night poutine bar (a beloved Canadian comfort food) and Texas touches (the couple flew in their favorite Texas guitarists to play for the ceremony and cocktail hour), the couple’s wedding was the perfect reflection of their backgrounds and a true “wedding to remember,” says the bride.
