Canada Elopement: Zack & Shawn
“We both admit that neither of us remembers a lot of the ceremony because we were both so nervous – funny, since it was just us,” Zack said of their Canada elopement. His favorite memory is from later in the day, after the officiant and hotel staff had left. “We went to a romantic dinner at a quiet romantic restaurant and I realized, for the first time, that I was sitting with my husband,” he said. “I would have done it no differently. The wedding was just for the two of us and that was priceless.”
