Jenny & Bob’s wedding was not short on elements that were unique to them. To start, Jenny had her two pups walk her down the aisle to her groom to be, they had a DIY floral bar where anyone could make their own bouquet — and let me tell you, the ladies LOVED this.
Instead of having a full dinner, they opted for a meal of soup and appetizers which were served non-stop from the end of the ceremony to the end of the night. And yes, they were delicious. Equally delicious were the cookies and apple cider we walked down through the rain to the Merrickville Ruins to enjoy. Totally worth it, I could’ve eaten every single one of those cookies myself.
While at the ruins, we ran into another bride and groom having their portraits taken and — get this — Jenny asked if she could get a photo with the other bride. If there was a definition of a chill bride, Jenny would be it. I’m telling you, this was not your average wedding.
Their reception was just as unique with never-ending appetizers, a beautiful pink lounge set from The Old Stone House parked next to the balloon display by The Balloon Bar, and a terrifying dinosaur who scared every single guest by biting them on the shoulder while they weren’t looking. No vendor credits available for that one.
The night ended on a less scary and much more romantic note though — with Jenny and Bob sneaking away to enjoy their first dance as a married couple only accompanied by my camera and the Edison bulbs strung up outside.
