From the jewelry to the invitations to the groom's tie to the adorable cream puffs, Susi and Michael's wedding was all about little, thoughtful touches that tied in Susi's Sri Lankan heritage with Michael's Canadian background.

As Susi says, "My husband and I were both born in Edmonton and my husband's family has been in Canada for a few generations but has European ancestry and my parents immigrated to Canada from Sri Lanka in the early 1970s so we were comfortable doing a mix of both Canadian and Sri Lankan traditions. The Sri Lankan traditions were mostly expressed through my Kandyan Sari and the layers of gold necklaces and some of the Buddhist traditions came through in the ceremony - like lighting of the oil lamp and feeding each other milk rice that my mother prepared that morning. The Canadian traditions were really everything else! We decided on Fort Edmonton Park for it's interesting history as a fur trading post, an aspect that many of our out of town guests enjoyed."

There were some lovely DIY bits thrown into the mix as well!

"I hand stamped the place cards and my husband made the table numbers. My mother-in-law made the centre-piece vases," Susi said.

We asked Susi if she had any advice for future brides and grooms. "Relax and enjoy," she said.
