FROM MELISSA: Our wed­ding day called for a 100 per cent chance of rain, so we pre­pared with pink rain boots and um­brel­las for the en­tire wed­ding party. We were hap­pily sur­prised when we saw sun­shine on the morn­ing of our wed­ding day. Mother Na­ture co-op­er­ated with us un­til we were done pho­tos—the rain didn’t start un­til we were safely in­side, mar­ried and par­ty­ing. In the morn­ing, af­ter we were all ready, Justin and I snuck away with our pho­tog­ra­pher for our “first look.” This ended up be­ing our favourite part of the day. Fol­low­ing the pic­tures, we had time to sit down to­gether with the bridal party and our fam­i­lies for a drink. Hav­ing that time with our par­ents, sib­lings and best friends in the mo­ments be­fore our wed­ding was def­i­nitely spe­cial. Our cer­e­mony was of­fi­ci­ated by Justin’s child­hood friend. It was his first time, and he did an amaz­ing job. The cer­e­mony was light and fun, which rep­re­sented us per­fectly. The Asian-fu­sion food we served was a huge hit with our guests, as was our venue Side­door’s amaz­ing dough­nuts and the sweet ta­ble cre­ated by my mom and friends. We fin­ished the night by walk­ing back to our ho­tel through down­town Ottawa in our wed­ding at­tire at 3 a.m.— we def­i­nitely at­tracted some at­ten­tion!
