COUPLE: Jenna & Ethan

WEDDING DATE: July 22, 2023

GUEST #: 75

CEREMONY LOCATION: Private Beach – Port Colborne

RECEPTION LOCATION: Humberstone “Humberstone is a fairly new small event centre in the town of Port Colborne. It was the most fantastic venue for our Wedding Reception because it allowed us to have the non-traditional components of our reception that we were looking for! The owners, Kevin & Kyla, were amazing to work with. They listened to every request and had a suggestion to make it work! They truly made our vision come to life!” – J

INSPIRATION: “We had a beach inspired wedding. We wanted to pull from the natural elements of our beautiful beach venue to create an elegant, soft, and airy look. Eucalyptus paired with white roses made for a luxurious and natural bloom pairing for our bouquets. We tied in simple touches of gold in the decor to create minimal, yet naturally elegant look.” – J

PHOTOGRAPHER: Heart to Heart Photography “We found Stefanyie from Heart to Heart Photography at The Ring’s Wedding Expo in Hamilton! We loved her personality and friendliness from the moment we met! In addition to loving her, we won one of her giveaways at the event! Stefanyie was amazing to work with from the beginning to the end. She is detail oriented and amazing at managing people to get the best photos possible! We are obsessed with our wedding photos – and there are SO many!” – J&E

COLOUR PALETTE: Beach inspired wedding with eucalyptus & “Resort Casual” attire!

TELL US YOUR STORY: “Our love story is not a story from a movie. Ethan and I have known each other for the greater portion of our lives but we took our sweet time to develop a liking for one another. We played on volleyball teams together, had mutual friends and mutual adventures over the years. Our love was not “love at first sight,” but after our very first date, we both knew that we were forever. The relationship developed quickly after that date, and our conversations and laughter were unlike any we’ve had with anyone else.

Our time spent without one another decreased at record speed and we began making plans and arrangements for our lives that revolved around each others’ next steps and ambitions. It has always been, “Ethan & Jenna.” Ethan proposed on a beach in New Brunswick seven years later. During those seven years, we maneuvered and managed long distance, moving across the country.. twice, graduating university and navigating career choices and changes as a united force. We always knew that marriage was the next step and it was the easiest “yes,” I have ever said!” – J

BRIDE’S ATTIRE: Love Story Bridal

FAVOURITE MEMORY: “We exchanged private vows after our first look. It was absolutely magical and the most intimate and private moment from our day!” – J

ADVICE FROM ONE COUPLE TO ANOTHER: “Plan your wedding together as a united team! It will become all-consuming, but once it’s over you’ll be so glad you talked about everything and made choices to make your day a reflection of YOU!” – J&E
