Jesse and Jeanette are two of the most adventurous, genuine, and funny (punny) people we have ever had the pleasure of meeting. The day started with the girls drinking champagne, playing with kittens, and of course, getting all dolled up at J² 's residence, while the boys suited up at Jesse's parents. Once everyone was in proper attire the limo picked us up at our respective residences and we met at the Holiday Inn Express Downtown for J² to say their "I do's". It was a beautiful ceremony with both Jesse and Jeanette writing their own personal vows for one another. At the end of the ceremony, they sealed their vows, along with a bottle of wine, into a wooden box, which they will open on their one year anniversary. We love this idea and think that it is a great way to celebrate a one year together!!
After the ceremony we headed out for some bridal images and things got punny! Jesse, who is super witty, kept us all laughing throughout photos with his jokes and puns. The gorgeous and sunny afternoon flew by and we made stops at Victoria Park, the neon light district, and a quick rendezvous with the Wayne Gretzky statue outside Roger's place. It was a perfect afternoon with the best couple and a rad bridal party!!
Next we headed back to the Holiday Inn Express Downtown for the reception. Jesse and Jeanette are both teachers and they incorporated this into their decor; from apples and pencils to Scrabble inspired name holders, this wedding had a lot of CLASS. Jeanette made most of the decor herself and it was absolutely stunning! We love when our couples personalize their decor and make it their own. There was also a delicious candy bar with some of the cutest bride and groom cookies we have ever seen!
The night was wrapped up with some heartfelt and funny speeches that had the guests roller-coasting from tears to laughter...and back to tears...and more laughter. Following the speeches, an epic dance party ensued. This was lively group and the fun never stopped.
