Immanuelle ‘Elle’ Cawelti and Ethan Graham

July 22, 2017

One weekend when Ethan was home from school, he took Elle to Otto Lake to skate and “shoot pucks around,” Elle recalls. “On our way back to the truck, Ethan got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. Nothing too fancy, but perfect in my mind.” What the couple best remembers about their wedding day, says Elle, was “the amount of love we felt surrounding us from our family and friends – it was “unforgettable.” The guests may best remember when the couple set off a stick of dynamite after they exchanged vows. “Our guests absolutely loved it, and it was special to us since the Graham family always loved mining for gold at the property,” says Elle. A funny moment occurred at the end of the ceremony: “Our officiant almost forgot to let us have our first kiss as husband and wife but luckily I helped him remember.”
