Wedding Bells (East) - - Real Weddings -

FROM JOSCE­LYNE: Our wed­ding theme was rus­tic bo­hemian meets mod­ern el­e­gance. Brass can­dle­sticks; lots of green­ery; geo­met­ric lanterns and vases; tall, large flo­ral cen­tre­pieces and grey gauze run­ners re­ally brought the en­tire theme to­gether. I ac­tu­ally re­ally loved all

the plan­ning. I love to de­sign, do crafts, sew and un­der­take any­thing artsy, so I took up the task of cre­at­ing al­most ev­ery­thing my­self—right down to sewing the drapes, mak­ing the grooms­men’s bow ties, brides­maids’ bou­quets, de­sign­ing the cen­tre­pieces… and the list goes on. The cer­e­mony had so many of my favourite mo­ments. See­ing my groom for the first time, stand­ing at the al­tar wait­ing for me, was in­cred­i­ble. It was also an amaz­ing feel­ing when they an­nounced us as hus­band and wife, and then we ex­ited the church to our favourite song, “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)” by The Pro­claimers. The one de­tail I’ll al­ways

cher­ish is my dress. I tried on more than 40 dresses in dif­fer­ent cities all over New Brunswick, and still could not find “the one.” Ev­ery­one told me I would cry when I knew it was the dress, and it wasn’t hap­pen­ing. I fell in love with a strap­less dress, but I wanted sleeves. Even­tu­ally I found an amaz­ing seam­stress who cre­ated the sleeves for me, and I ended up with the dress of my dreams!
