Real Wedding - Jessica and Chris in Ontario, Canada

Jessica and Chris first met through mutual friends, but Chris happened to work with Jessica's Mom! Jessica and her mom moved to Ottawa so she could go to university, and Chris came with friends to help them move. It was then that Jessica discovered he worked with her Mom. The couple have been together ever since. 

The couple, who have been together for 10 years, had a quiet engagement in 2011. “Because we built our house before our wedding we had put off getting married for a couple of years,” Jessica says. “Once the planning started we had seven months to plan. We had a great time planning and we were both thrilled with having a full day to spend with our friends and family.”

Their venue, Orchard View, ran a contest to win the Ultimate Weekday Wedding and couples had to submit a photo of them showing off their love for each other. Jessica and Chris were the winners and the couple enjoyed their dream wedding in the evening sun. 

“We tried to incorporate our favorite things into the day,” Jessica says. “I love purple so I chose that for the girls dresses as well as calla lilies. We both really liked the classic look so we tried to keep everything simply designed and color coordinated.”

The highlight of the couple’s day was getting to celebrate with their families, some of whom had never met before: “Our friends and family all being at the same place at the same time was very special! Part of our families met one year before our wedding and the other part met on our wedding day.”

The couple are planning their honeymoon for 2015. Take a look at their special day as seen through Chantal Benoit Photographer's lens.
