Lea's dad rowed his daughter, the bride, to her wedding ceremony in a distinctly Canadian manner. Arriving at Ryan's family property via canoe on Kootenay Lake, the bride and groom wed beneath an arbor on the beach as waves lapped the shores.
Lea and Ryan's getaway was equally memorable.  Their party waved them off - and the bride grabbed hold of her veil - as they took off in a gold Torino GT convertable.  They hugged the windy shoreline over the big orange bridge for a 1-car parade into Nelson with custom soundtrack, boot & beer cans trailing, to the waves and shouts of delight by passerbyers and pedestrians, many of whom know Ryan as a local businessman.
But this day, he was just a smiley, celebratory groom as he drove around town with his arm around his new bride.   See their premiere post HERE, 1st look HERE and more chapters to follow.
