A Gorgeous Pink And Gold Wedding

Jessica and Misha’s wedding honoured the couple’s heritage and celebrated the strength of love and creation of a new life together. The couple both graduated from Queen’s University and tied the knot almost 10 years to the day they first met.

As a tribute Misha’s heritage, the couple said their I do’s under a traditional Jewish chuppah, and celebrated Jessica’s South African heritage with floral arrangements featuring king and queen Protea, the country’s national flower.

Wanting to pay homage to their gorgeous venue, Evergreen Brick Works, Jessica and Misha’s officiant compared the building blocks of a successful, sturdy marriage to the longevity of the historic quarry. “We felt the conversion of this former active quarry into a beautiful shared outdoor space and the symbolism of bricks themselves as a building material was a strong metaphor for creating our new life together,” Jessica says. “While we love nature, we aren't the most earthy people so we worked with our planner, Lexi Haslam of Lexington & Co, to bring some glam to the rustic space with chandeliers, velvet lounge furniture, and soft linens.”

To add some personal touches, their vows were inspired by a famous scene in the bride’s favourite movie, When Harry Met Sally. “We stole the 'I love that...' repeating structure from the final scene where Harry acknowledges his love for Sally on New Year's Eve, surprising each other with five things we deeply loved about the other person before making shared promises that varied from the sincere ('I promise to be patient and kind') to the silly but very important 'I promise to make the bed if I get up last,' Jessica says.

The couple made sure that their wedding was a night to remember. The newlyweds and their guests marched from the ceremony space to their reception with the help from a New Orleans-style second line parade, and performed a choreographed hip-hop number to keep the party going. “It was so fun to completely surprise all of our friends and family by running onto the packed dance floor in different outfits and breaking into 'This is How We Do It' by Montell Jordan,” Jessica says. “The compilation of four tracks ended with Misha sitting in a chair while I danced to Beyonce's 'Crazy in Love'. The crowd was losing it!”
