JODI-LYNN + KEN | MARRIED

I've known Jodi since elementary, we'd walk to school in the mornings, our first jobs in high school were together at the hardware and her mom and I would gossip every dentist visit. She'll always be my beautiful spunky friend that grew up a street away! I wouldn't want anyone else shooting her wedding day. Three kids later and buying a home with Ken, here they are! Jodi talks to me about Ken like we're still back in high school, so in love like we're 16 years old, and Ken looks at Jodi like she's the only person in front of him. You can see it yourself in these photos. It's relationship goals.

There's no right way or wrong way to hold your wedding but in my humble opinion Jodi + Ken did their wedding in all the right ways. They held a private ceremony at their home, with their immediate family, 3 children and 2 dogs in attendance. They prepared the barn for the ceremony site, which will soon become their chicken roost, decorated with an illuminated sign which they made themselves. They both dressed in the house and approached the ceremony together with their dogs. Jodi's engagement ring has a blue sapphire and her wedding shoes were cowboy boots. The kids got to watch their parents give their vows, then wandered around the property with us to take pictures. We ate cake and the couple whisked off to their honeymoon in Niagara. Perfect, from start to finish, in every way.

Congratulations J+K!! All of my love!

'Espresso Your Love'

I'm thrilled to announce the project that has been a true labour of our love for months. Myself and a brilliant team of creatives banded together to generate an unforgettable vision heading into 2017. Our beloved espresso inspired event takes shape in this entry.

Katrina Schaller of Deka Events speaks on it's concept: '‘Espresso Your Love’ captures the pure essence of a country themed brunch wedding with a boho and modern edge. Located in the heart of Hudson, Deka Events conjured up local entrepreneurs and artists to collaboratively showcase their talents while creating the epitome of the coffee lovers’ dream. Accented with bold and rich coffee coloured tones and complimented with copper elements throughout; it is reflected from the table top accessories, to the delectable desserts, all the way down to the thoughtfully designed stationery.'

Our locally renowned barista, Elizabeth Glazier of Mikko Espresso & Boutique writes, ‘Our mobile services will meet your next event with a coffee menu designed to suit your tastes. From corporate events to weddings or seasonal fairs, enjoy a range of hot and cold espresso beverages, served by our passionate baristas.'

Also proudly showcased: Handmade boutonnieres, Mr. & Mrs. coffee cozies, a wildly spirited florist, beauty team’s opus, down to the savvy craft beer brewers.  All this charm took place in the rustic atelier where many old and unique items are given vitality.
