About the Dragons

Mrs. Dragon is a newspaper reporter, and Mr. Dragon is a graphic designer. The two met and started dating after Mrs. Dragon moved to Northern Ontario to work at the same paper where Mr. Dragon was employed.

After a year and a half of dating, the couple embarked on a 10,000-kilometre cross-Canada motorcycle trip, during which Mr. Dragon proposed at an unscheduled hotel stop when rain forced them off the road in Valemount, British Columbia.

Planning the Wedding

The Little Details

What to Wear?


Vendors and Friendors

The Dragons worked primarily with friends and family instead of professional vendors:

  • Mom Dragon worked her magic and created all of the floral elements for the wedding.
  • The bride and groom opted to forgo hiring a baker and made their own cake, along with a dessert buffet. Miss Dragon had a hard time finding a decent icing recipe.
  • Mr. Dragon's talented co-worker and photographer, Brent Wesley, took their mountaintop photos.
  • Mr. Dragon's dad, an ordained minister, was their officiant.
  • Mrs. Dragon's college friend took the wedding photos.
  • Instead of a DJ, the Dragons decided to have an iPod-powered ceremony and reception. They used an awesome app to make it happen. All of their playlists can be found here.
  • Dad Dragon and BIL Chris created a scrumptious Southern-style BBQ meal.
  • There was no makeup artist in sight.

Road-Trip Honeymoon

The Dragons had to drive to Brockville for their wedding, so they used the return trip as an opportunity to enjoy a mini-honeymoon. They started out in lower Michigan, visited Mackinac Island, then finished things off in the U.P, Wisconsin and Minnesota.
