A Country Chic Wedding in Ottawa - Bride and Groom

Lee proposed to Jessica on New Year’s Eve, two minutes before midnight in front of all of their friends. “I will never forget the night Lee proposed to me. It was so much fun to have all of our friends there to celebrate with us–and what a great way to ring in the new year!” Jessica says.

For their wedding, the couple decided to choose a country chic theme to encompass both of their personalities. “As much as I love and appreciate all things country (like my husband), I still needed some glitz and glamour in there too. We mixed chandeliers with chalkboard signs, which surprisingly worked! Merging our two styles made our wedding feel so much more personal,” Jessica says.

The bride and groom agree that their first look was one of the highlights of the day. “It was so private. I loved that we had time to ourselves; to be with each other and get excited for all that was to come on our wedding day,” Jessica explains. The second most memorable moment of the day? The dance party, of course! “The dance floor was epic. We had so much fun with the guests (who really know how to dance!)—from line-dancing to Dirty Dancing lifts, everyone was having such a great time and we loved it. We had the time of our lives!”
