They Are in the Same Career Field
While it might be a nightmare for some of us to picture working with your significant other, it has worked amazingly well for Kidder and May. The two are both Green party politicians meaning that you know they share the same views of the world.
They Got Married on Earth Day
What better way to show their love for each other and their love of the world than to marry on Earth Day? In Victoria, B.C. the beautiful ceremony took place that included a mix of Indigenous and Western symbols.
Not to mention, May looked gorgeous in her white gown and flower crown.
It Was the Greenest Wedding Ever
Not only was the wedding green due to both the bride and groom's careers; but it is also being declared as one of Canada’s greenest weddings ever.
According to the National Observer, the couple planned on taking a train for their honeymoon in Toronto and Ottawa. During which time, they will be without access to cell service for a full week.
The dynamic duo also tried to keep the event as low-carbon as they could that indued emission-fee shuttles, re-used flowers, potluck reception, and locally gathered centrepieces.
They Are Both Incredibly Successful
May has served as the leader of the Green Party of Canada since 2006. Kidder is married to one of the best-known faces in politics but that doesn’t mean his own career has taken a back seat.
Kidder has deep connections in the Green Party. In fact, he was one of the founders of the provincial Green Party of B.C.
If anything, the two help each other prosper as they have perfectly matching views on everything.
Their Love Story is Worthy of a Disney Movie
According to CBC News, Kidder met May through politics five years go. At the time, he was running as the Green Party candidate in the B.C. elections in the Fraser-Nicola riding.
May offered her help with the campaign and the rest is history. Kidder even told CBC that "she was so gracious and so charming and so lovely that I was kind of carried away.”
After crossing paths several times throughout their career, the couple connected again in September while in Vancouver for a Green Party convention.
After a month, Kidder proposed because he “couldn’t help himself."
Just Look at Them
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that these two are madly in love. They are utterly adorable together and May even said she was “deliriously happy” after marrying Kidder.
