One Friday night after Jessica left the office, a limo pulled up at her side. “The door swung open, and Darren was there – ring-in-hand,” Jessica recalls with a smile. After Jessica accepted his proposal with tears in her eyes, the limo whisked the couple, bubbly in hand, away for lovely evening in Niagara Falls.

Jessica and Darren’s day had a romantic, elegant ambiance befitting of this fashionable couple. Their historical church venue was decorated with gorgeous peach, pink, ivory and navy details and a host of DIY elements. From the handcrafted cake topper to the sepia-toned framed family photos, Jessica and Darren put a personalized spin on their classic theme.

The two chose "Home" by Phillip Phillips for their wedding song. “We are each other's home, no matter where we are,” Jessica explains. As the upbeat tune played on, Jessica and Darren brought their parents, followed by their bridal party, onto the dance floor. “It was a beautiful moment,” Jessica says.
