FROM ADENA: JJ and I first met in class at univer­sity. I walked in on the first day of my third year and no­ticed him im­me­di­ately. We went on a cof­fee date a few weeks later and he sealed the deal by buy­ing me a fresh-from-the-oven choco­late chip muf­fin on the way out. I would de­scribe our wedding as a mod­ern fairy tale, with a quirk! From the old-world charm of the venue to the bright flowers and whim­si­cal de­tails, the cel­e­bra­tion felt so un­be­liev­ably au­then­tic. Ev­ery­thing had mean­ing, from the colour scheme of blush and gold with a pop of berry to the se­quined table­cloths that added a dose of fri­vol­ity (which I’m all about!). Dur­ing the first dance, the whole world stopped. It felt like it was just me and JJ, slow-danc­ing in our liv­ing room. I was so en­tranced by our wedding song (“Un­chained Melody” by the Righ­teous Brothers), his em­brace and the over­whelm­ing joy I felt. Our sta­tionery suite still has me swoon­ing. I plan to in­cor­po­rate it into a gallery wall. From the ele­gant font—which JJ and I spent hours mulling over— to the del­i­cate, wa­ter­colour paint swoosh, it’s the em­bod­i­ment of both our per­son­al­i­ties: him, a clas­si­cist at heart, and me, the quirky cre­ative!
