Kaitlyn has always been a woman who knew what she wanted. She doesn’t lack decisiveness nor confidence. So one day, in 2011, when she saw one of the Smiley brothers walk into the gym at school, at the University of Lethbridge, she knew she found her husband. Unfortunately, she later saw her future-husband with his girlfriend and was super bummed… only to later figure out that it was actually his twin Samuel that she saw with his now, wife, Megan!
As luck would have it, Kaitlyn ended up being in the same class as Regan one semester and he was single. The first time she talked to him was outside of class, her classic opener was, “Is your name ‘Ree-gan’ or ‘Ray-gan?’” Haha! And the rest is history. They finished their degrees and later moved back to Calgary to start their lives together.
Regan (Ree-gan, just in case you were curious) proposed in their first home together, after living there together for about a year, on the living room floor. Regan had a really small window of opportunity to propose that evening and he had the ring for about a month before popping the question. Kaitlyn’s response was very memorable; she let out a big f-bomb hahah. ‘Are you f*ing kidding me!?’ – Of course, she said yes.
On February 17, 2018 as thick flakes fell outside of The Commons Calgary in the beautiful Hemingway Room, Kaitlyn got to the marry the man of her dreams, the one she had set her eyes on that day on the elliptical. Regan is not only athletic, but he is incredibly kind and dedicated- as Kaitlyn puts it “everybody loves him.” Kaitlyn is his absolute match with her outgoing nature, she is effortless to talk to and always makes everyone around her comfortable. Together they are this dynamic couple that are loyal and loving.
It was truly an honour to spend the last year getting to know these two and Im so excited to share their ‘highlight’ blog with you all today. Congratulations again, Mr & Mrs Smiley!! I adore you both so much and I can’t wait to see what is next for you!
