JESSICA IVESON & CURTIS ARMSTRONG
JUNE 27, 2015
FROM JESSICA: The goal of our wedding day was to make sure people had fun and felt they could relax, eat well and dance up a storm. We went looking for a venue to fit our style, which we found in Evermore. It was a new venue at the time and was still being built into a barn. When we saw the finished product, Curtis and I were speechless. All of the guests had nothing but great things to say about it. We put a lot of personalized ideas into our wedding, but one of our favourite elements was the dessert table and favours put together by Curtis’s family. Guests enjoyed a spread of a beautiful three-layered cake (it matched my dress!), tasty cupcakes and delicious cookies. Even the gorgeous cake stands were made by my father-in-law using birch tree wood. Another personal touch was our seating chart, which was made up of cards we created with a picture of each guest on the front. On the inside there was a personal note to each of our family members and friends. It was a great conversation starter and everyone seemed really pleased— no card was left behind. Our DJ, Steve from the Professional Entertainment Group, was on the ball. He set up a screen (unplanned) for videos—we didn’t know what it was for. It turned out he was using it to play the videos of requested songs. He managed to turn the dance floor into a MuchMusic dance party from the ’90s— in an awesome way!
