JENNIFER CHELL & ANDREW MURFIN
JANUARY 9, 2016
FROM JENNIFER: I’m a pretty unique and, admittedly, picky individual, so when Drew and I went ring shopping, I couldn’t find any I liked. Later that day during a hike, we were sitting down on a blanket when Drew pulled out a gorgeous solitaire he had designed himself. It was incredible! Instead of deciding on a particular theme or palette, Drew and I focused on how we wanted our wedding to feel. We knew we wanted guests to feel rested, refreshed and inspired at our wedding, and we used this as the guiding principle throughout the entire process. We chose to view the wedding as our first creative endeavour together. It was really inspiring watching our vision unfold exactly as we’d imagined. I wrote a poetic liturgy for the ceremony and we both wrote our own vows. It was incredibly moving. Drew is a musician (he’s in a band called Fever Fever) so he wrote the music for the wedding. Before we started dating, as an excuse to talk to me every day, Drew wrote a song each day for the whole month of February and sent them to me. I got a pretty good idea of his style, and I knew he’d be able to write something perfect for our first dance.
