wedding date: 14th march 2020
73 wedding guests
High school sweethearts, Jesse + Joselyn first met in high school and became engaged 4 years after leaving school.
the proposal: One night while we were building our house, I told Jesse to meet me at the house (frame at the time) and I was there waiting with candles for him as a nice little romantic gesture, later that night he proposed to me …
What led you to decide on your Wedding venue? We had seen a few venues along the tweed coast and when we viewed them we felt like “another number” Osteria Weddings made us feel like we were the only ones in the world to get married, we just knew it was the place for us, plus the fact that thevenue is absolutely stunning, the communication was efficient, their prices were so fair for value + they just took the “hard work” out for us.
What was the inspiration behind your Wedding theme? We used alot of instagram for inspo, we wanted a laid back + relaxed vibe. We had been to many weddings before, all different themes, prices, styles ect and what we love the most was being consumed in the love, the good vibes, food and drinks, and of course the dance floor. We wanted to create an atmosphere that our guests would feel the same way.
Your most favourite moment of the day:
Jesse: Seeing joselyn walk down the aisle with her dad
Joselyn: I don’t have a favourite moment, the entire day was amazing, it
was everything I wanted it to be.
Favourite detail: The over all style of the decor and the “look” of the reception room was our favourite, also my bouquet, I loved that!
How was your dress/suit shopping experience overall?
Joselyn: My dress was the 2nd one I tried on, I specifically had the 1st one ordered in for me, I felt like it was going to be the one… it wasn’t. When I booked my next appointment at White Lily Couture, I wasn’t even looking for the style dress I ended up choosing. The assistant brought it out and convinced me to try it on and it was game over, I knew it was the one.
Jesse: Joselyn had seen my suit online and I wasn’t the biggest fan on it, but I said I’d have a look at the style once we got into the store. Turns out it was actually really cool – it was still simple, but had a ‘modern’ version of pin stripe which I really liked.
What does marriage mean to you?
Joselyn: Annoying Jesse for the rest of my life, just kidding.. marriage to me means growing together with the person you can be most vulnerable with.
Jesse: Marriage to me is having the person I love, being there by my side through my greatest challenges and whatever life throws my way
Any classic stories you want to share from the day? Well.. a world health pandemic was announced 3 days before our wedding.. so that was quite the story and topic of conversation for everyone, we love to look back and tell people when our wedding was and everyone is like oh my god thats crazy, I cant believe you made it.
– Don’t stress about what people will think, if theyre important enough to you to be invited to our wedding then they are there for you
– Don’t stress about the money, it’ll come and go, if you want to book that videographer then you book that videographer, you only get the chance to live in this moment the one time
– On the day advice – slow yourself down, its so hard to not get caught up and the day goes by and you don’t even remember walking down the aisle, take 5 minutes to kick back, have a moment with you and your husband/wife and look at the day you have created
Stand out vendors for the day:
We loved all our vendors, everyone made us feel so important and did whatever they could to go the extra mile and help relieve any stress, but I think a few most stand outs were our celebrant, even after the wedding she checked in and helped us with the name changing process, our photographers Florin Lane, they have been the coolest people from day one, we definitely felt like we created a good relationship with them which made it even better the day of our wedding, we felt so comfortable doing our photos with them.
