Jasmine & Jason first contacted me in May of 2011. Shortly after that, we began the process of planning their wedding. What a dream couple to work with! After a year of planning had passed, Jasmine flew out for a weekend of planning together in NB this past May. We enjoyed some cake samples (reason # 127 why I love my job) and had an amazing taste testing at The Tait House in Shediac with her super sweet Grandmother. I knew their event was going to be special and I was not mistaken.
Jasmine warned me many times that she was "a crier". We chuckled in our attempts to find the perfect make up artist knowing her fate on that matter (with a few make up artist scares mixed in there too - all part of the planning fun). In the end, the happiest of happy tears were shed and as expected they both looked perfect.
The weather couldn't have been more cooperative for the outdoor ceremony! Their guests laughed and cried with them, hearing stories of their relationship and listening to their hand written, personalized vows for each other (Jasmine wasn't the only one tearing up, thanks a lot guys). I'd also like to take this time to thank Jasmine for getting me completely hooked on the song "Lucky Man" by Matt York (her entrance song). It's been on repeat in my car since July 28th. :)
Off to the beach with their gang in Shediac to enjoy the sun and photos with their baby Pipa, who I regretfully did not get the joy of meeting. One person I did have the pleasure of meeting and working with for the first time was their awesome photographer Heather Wilkinson. Check her out here: www.heatherwilkinson.ca
Caricature artist Marc Little joined the outdoor cocktail party and gave guests a nice take away portrait of themselves for those who were brave enough to have one done!
The cake, made by Karen Silliker of The Cake Box, was the talk of the entire reception! Not only was it stunning to look at from the front but Jasmine, as a surprise to Jason, had Mario & Luigi added to the back of the cake! I was on strict orders from Jason to make sure he got Mario and that his brother got Luigi "because he is always Mario". ;)
Thank you both so much for allowing me the pleasure of joining you on the journey to your wedding day!
