Patrick had to go with Plan B for his proposal to Jazz. Initially, he arranged an elaborate night of fireworks, a five course meal at a fine dining restaurant and champagne. However, the dinner took longer than expected, and the weather was so cold that the champagne froze into slush, so the night didn’t go as planned. But in the intimacy and warmth of their cozy home, he popped the question. “The moral of the story is, a Plan B is a great idea, but also letting things happen organically makes the experience uniquely yours,” Jazz shares.
For the bride, it was important to keep the wedding decor simple and elegant. She wanted the atmosphere to feel warm and relaxed yet sophisticated. To reflect this, she opted for tons of white flowers, lots of greenery, white lanterns, strings of fairy lights and candles to create a whimsical and magical ambiance. “It was vital for me that our guests feel surrounded by inspiring and inviting natural beauty,” Jazz says. “I focused on personalizing touches and details. It created an intimate and romantic setting that represented us.”
Throughout the wedding, there were multiple personal touches that made the day feel special. Patrick composed a song for Jazz to walk down the aisle to. “The number of hours and dedication he put into that piece was worth the wait!” she shares. Additionally, they had a personalized wax seal that stamped their marriage certificate, an engraved personalized ring box and hand-stitched handkerchiefs. The couple also hired an artist who painted a beautiful piece for them during cocktail hour for them to remember that special part of their day.
“Can’t Help Falling in Love With You” by Elvis Presley was the perfect song choice for the couple, as they wanted a romantic and classic song for the first dance. For the dance, Jazz’s father performed the piece on the acoustic guitar. “As a musician, his career, love and passion for music has had a huge impact on my life and is something my father and my husband really connect on,” Jacinthe shares. “I was thrilled to incorporate him this way on our wedding day.”
