Kelly Crosier and Devin Haywood-Farmer were wed in Farmer's Bull Pasture on North Green Lake Road on Sept. 1.

On Sept. 1, Kelly Crosier and Devin Haywood-Farmer were wed in Farmer’s Bull Pasture property on North Green Lake Road.

They met in the summer of 2007 in Fort McMurray, Alberta, where Kelly is originally from and where Devin, who was originally from Armstrong, was attending college. They met while playing on a softball team together. They started dating in 2011 and both were living and working in Edmonton. Devin grew up spending his summers at Green Lake, where his father, Stewart Haywood-Farmer, and his three sisters – Sally, Fran, and Cathie – are joint owners of the property Kelly and Devin were married on.

The property was given to them by their parents Frank and Betty, who still spend their summers there. Devin proposed to Kelly last summer at Green Lake and it was quickly decided that it was where they wanted the wedding. The newlyweds will continue to live in Edmonton for the foreseeable future but continue to visit Green Lake.

Families united

On Aug. 31, Terri Bregg and Christopher Davey joined hands and were wed on the bluff overlooking Green Lake at the home of Terri’s grandparents – Aaron and Gail Bregg.

The sun shone down on the happy couple as they stood under the arch facing the lake and Terri’s and Christopher’s guests watched as the couple exchanged vows.

Guests were treated to a wonderful dinner, which was prepared and served by many family members and neighbours under a tent with a spectacular setting of white and blue. Tables decorated with jars of local grasses, pine cones and fairy lights completed the Cariboo fantasy scene.

The groom’s parents Curtis and Tammy Davey travelled from Manitoba to help the happy couple celebrate their wedding. Other guests came from various parts of British Columbia.
