These two are so amazing together! Seriously! And their wedding day was adventurous, to say the least! We had rain, we had thunder and lightning, we had an exceptionally muddy run back to the limo when the rain hit (particularly the bride), and Jessie and Phil were so chill about everything the day sent their way. In the end, the mud all came out of Jessie’s dress, we had beautiful light in between bouts of rain, and then the most incredible sunset light, and it all worked out just fantastically!! And, really, with the way these two looked at each other all day, it could have poured buckets non-stop and it wouldn’t have mattered. So blessed to witness your day, Phil and Jessie, and congratulations again!
As always, here’s a bit more of Jessie + Phil’s love story, in their words:
How did you meet?
Jessie: It was because of Phil that we met.
Phil: I was driving down the street and I saw her walking with a friend of mine. I thought to myself, “She’s beautiful, I have to meet her”. So I did & the rest is history.
Jessie: I thought he was cute & funny. I was drawn to him, it was strange. Words can’t really explain it.
Phil: I thought she was beautiful & funny. I kept thinking I wish I had dressed better and shaved, lol.
How did Phil propose?
Phil: We were walking on the shores of Newfoundland. I was really nervous. For the first time in my life I couldn’t find any words.
Jessie: He took off that day for a long time & I couldn’t figure out why, until we went for a walk & he pulled out the ring.
Why did you pick your venue?
Jessie: We both chose my dad’s house in Kamloops, because we just fell in love with the view. We both thought it was perfect!
Phil: Aside from the ceremony, it would have to be the speeches. They were heartfelt and very funny.
Jessie: I would have to say dancing with my dad. I had never danced with my dad before. He chose the song so it was that much more meaningful.
