Private Residence, Ottawa Wedding – Jenna + Rob

Oh where do I begin with this wedding! Jenna and Rob decided to have their wedding at the farm where Jenna grew up. Her dad had built the farm so it was full of sentimental history and the perfect place to exchange their vows. With the help of their friends and family, who were even working away hours before the ceremony, they worked on the property to ensure it was perfect for the day. Since they are both very laid back people they wanted to ensure their wedding felt like them. They opted for hand-made details, a family-style dinner, and a first-look so they could spend as much time with their guests.

That laid back feeling was carried throughout the whole day. Jenna and her bridesmaids hung out in the backyard with champagne while dancing to JT. Guests were greeted with champagne before the ceremony and for a toast when they were married. Their dog, Lucy, made numerous appearances all day and night. Each speech throughout dinner was sentimental yet hilarious. And to finish it off, they had a taco stand!

I didn’t want to leave at the end of the night! The dance floor was packed and everyone was having such a great time – and did I mention the tacos! Jenna and Rob, you know how to throw a party! Here’s to two genuine, appreciative, and amazing people. Congratulations!

Jenna had a mini first look with her dad where she surprised him with personalized cufflinks and handkerchief.

Jenna and Rob both love California – it’s also where they got engaged – so it was perfectly fitting to have a guestbook inspired by the state.
