Jessica and Dave were married on the shores of her family cottage in Calabogie. From start to end, these two were so much fun and clearly belonged together.
We did Magic Time before the ceremony, which mean they got to see each other privately. I’m a big proponent of this for a few reasons, but here is how Jessica felt about it:
We drove to an outdoor location (separately, to build the anticipation). I arrived first, to take a hiding spot. Dave arrived and when came around the corner…it was really special to see each other for the first time and actually enjoy the moment. And despite our private “first look,” we were still emotional when meeting on the aisle! The ceremony was surreal, a blur, but we clearly remember our “first look” in that quiet moment, just the two of us.
We messed around in the barn for a bit longer…such a great location, how could we not!
Then it was ceremony time 🙂
This is what happens when you forget to put out the rose petals before the ceremony 🙂
After that, it was one big party. I don’t think Dave stopped smiling the entire day!
