What do you do when the love of your life is diagnosed with cancer? Well, Chris decided to marry her! That's not quite the order as Chris and Gloria were engaged to be married when she was diagnosed with cancer. With wedding plans well underway, deposits paid and guests expected from out of town they decided to go for it! Gloria courageously went through her aggressive treatment all the way up to the wedding date. They didn't know if she'd have the energy for a wedding celebration and had a tentative back up plan for a more intimate wedding at the house if she didn't have the energy for it. Thankfully, love persevered and they were able to have their wedding surrounded by close family and friends at the beautiful University Golf Club. Despite having lost all her hair as a side effect to the Chemotherapy, Gloria wore an attractive wig for the big day. As a sign of confidence and grace, Gloria removed her wig and danced to her favourite dance songs played by our DJ. They had a morning wedding and luncheon reception but still enjoyed a great daytime dance party to celebrate. Their wedding perfectly suited their personalities. They are very down to earth and personable and not flashy at all. They did away with many of the traditions and focused on the love, community and family & friends that attended. It was raw, emotional and very powerful. We felt so honoured to be a part of it and felt a tremendous amount of love and respect for Gloria and Chris' journey. We are thankful to have been a part of it. Congratulations on your courage and strength which will carry you both forward in your lives together.
