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!
