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!

Shannon + Matthew: Married

You may remember seeing S+M on my blog a little earlier this season for their engagement session in St. Henri. Their wedding came and I can't believe already went, this season has been a whirlwind. I had a great time revisiting it for today's blog post.

I love Shannon's stunning, modest and equally breathtaking, decision to wear a dove grey two-piece dress, layered with a lace top. Their style mimics my own in so many ways! I'm not married but I can only imagine.

The boutonnieres, bouquets and flower crowns were handmade using a variety of fabrics. They were the perfect colour pop over the nudes and neutrals that the bridal party wore.

Matt wrote vows that should be published and read by all groom-to-be's. Beautiful words that would give all future husbands a reason to be worried when it comes time to write their own. Shannon and Matt are kind, creative and lovely humans. You'd know it if you were there like I was, so I'm honoured for it.

Congratulations Shannon + Matthew!
