TELL US YOUR STORY: “Cody and I met through mutual friends back in 2018. We had both heard of each other many times but never acted on it until just after May 2/4 when we finally went on our first date. The date was perfect! Cody picked me up at my house, took me for dinner, and gave me my first-ever four-leaf clover. From that moment on, we were inseparable and I officially moved into his place in September. The following September on the 26th, 2019, we moved into our first home together. It was such a huge step for both of us but we were ready for the next chapter in our life. On October 9th, 2019, Cody and I went on a date night down at Spencer Smith Park just to get out of our reno/paint clothes and to dress up. We had a lovely dinner. After dinner, we went to the waterfront, and while standing in the middle on the compass, Cody got down on one knee and asked me to spend the rest of my life with him. From then until September 26th, 2020 there were many wedding shows and planning adventures as well as covid obstacles. We are very fortunate that we were still able to have the wedding of our dreams during this time and for a moment the world felt normal again.” – J

BIGGEST CHALLENGE: “The biggest challenge by far was COVID. There were so many ups and down with the ever-changing restrictions right up until the day of the wedding. We had a lovely planner who helped us through these tough times and at the end of the day we got through our COVID wedding perfectly. We had a plan from the beginning that no matter what we were getting married on this day, even if it was only 5 people. Thankfully it turned out better than we thought.” – J&C
