Calgarians Elizabeth Palmer and Cameron Nobles said “I do!” in front of a dozen guests Saturday at the place where their romance began.
With the pandemic pressing pause on their destination wedding, the couple decided to tie the knot in the café where they first met: Waves Coffee House, located at 1019 17 Ave. S.W.
“It’s been five-and-a-half years coming, and I’m just really happy that this day is here and he is my husband,” Palmer said linking arms with him.
“It’s a very big relief, to be super honest,” the groom chimed in.
The pair, who met online, previously told Global News their first impressions of each other.
“I remember walking in, and he stood up, and I was like, ‘Holy crap, he’s tall,’” Palmer said with a laugh.
“I looked at her and said, ‘Oh my God, look how gorgeous she is,’” he said.
COVID-19 disrupted plans for their wedding in Jamacia, where Palmer is from.
“I didn’t want to wait a whole year to be married, so we’re like, ‘Let’s just have a civil ceremony and do a religious ceremony next year with family and friends,’” the bride explained.
After celebrating in Calgary this weekend, the newlyweds are jetting off to Cancun on Monday for their honeymoon.
