FROM JIL­LIAN: Ian and I ac­tu­ally met while

speed dat­ing. Who’d have thought it ac­tu­ally works? We sat across from each other and mulled over whether we should pick one another for a date. We were both in ad­ven­tur­ous and for­giv­ing moods that day, so we gave each other a shot. Our wed­ding

theme was mod­ern ethe­real. The whole at­mos­phere felt right for us. It was cool, smart and well cu­rated yet ro­man­tic and emo­tional. We re­fined our colour scheme by us­ing pas­tel blues and soft peach with gold ac­cents. Co­in­ci­den­tally, the blue and gold tied in per­fectly with the del­i­cate em­broi­dery on my dress. We both also liked the idea of us­ing fruit as an ac­cent, along with a min­i­mal yet thought­ful se­lec­tion of flow­ers. Sweet Woodruff de­signed a unique back­drop of asym­met­ri­cal blooms for the cer­e­mony. See­ing what they cre­ated for us was a stun­ning sur­prise. We chose “Rosie” by John Mayer as our wed­ding

song. It had the per­fect vibe for the first dance but the lyrics didn’t fit the oc­ca­sion. Ian, be­ing an am­a­teur mu­si­cian, se­cretly recorded his own ver­sion of the wed­ding song. He def­i­nitely earned enough brownie points to last him the rest of our lives.
