arl contacted me months ago to tell me that to celebrate his 25th wedding anniversary he was planning to surprise his wife with a vow renewal. He told me he wanted everything to be perfect for Paula. They flew from Australia to the Canadian Rocky Mountains.
25 years ago Carl and Paula eloped. They hadn't hired a photographer so they don't have photographs from their wedding day. This time Carl planned everything from contacting me to take photographs, picking a bouquet, choosing the officiant and the location. Their daughters went dress shopping with Paula knowing about the surprise, all the while Paula thinking she was buying a dress for an anniversary dinner out. They picked the perfect dress. They renewed their vows on the edge of the frozen Lake Louise with Victoria glacier as their backdrop and Kevin and I as their witnesses.
Carl and Paula raised 5 beautiful kids together and the first thing that becomes obvious upon meeting them is how proud they are of their kids and their love for each other. Carl and Paula are passionate about travel and have photographs from all over the world of their travels together...Canada was a dream trip for them and the perfect place to renew their vows.
