There was so much to love about Jessica & Phil’s wedding. First, of course, their stunning attire. That Berta dress literally took my breath away when I first saw it (and it still does). And Phil’s maroon suite with the cute detail of the one purple flower in Jessica’s bouquet to match it. While we are talking about flowers…OMG, I just adored the creative flowers at their ceremony and reception. Slow-clap to Filosophi and Our Little Flower Factory for transforming the Vancouver Convention Centre. It magically had this light and airy feeling of an outdoor garden party.
But all these beautiful things aside, what I loved most at their wedding were the speeches. All the speeches were either down right funny or so very touching. I love when people take this opportunity to express their love and thankfulness towards their friends and family. There’s no doubt that I had some tears in my eyes at this wedding. And last but not least, Phil’s surprise to Jessica of playing a song on a giant piano, straight out of the 80’s hit, BIG. Just typifies how fun and thoughtful these two are towards each other, which is so sweet to see.
