Every single time I watch this video my eyes fill up with tears.
I am overwhelmed with happiness and love, their love is contagious.
Their story is powerful, extraordinary and their love is unconditional.
Jennifer and Abraham, thank you so much for sharing your love with us wholeheartedly.
Jennifer and Abraham’s sweet intimate wedding was held at Bird’s Eye Cove Farm on Vancouver Island. Just a hop, skip and a jump away on a ferry and Jack and I found ourselves at this breathtaking venue nestled away in the Cowichan Valley. There you will find picturesque views, farm animal friends and all around natural beauty. I couldn’t have imagined a spot more fitting for these two as they shared their hand written vows in front of their closest family and friends.
It was perfect.
(P.S- Check out their sweet proposal story at the end of this post!)
From the Couple:
How would you describe your day?:
‘I would describe the day as absolute bliss. There was literally not one thing that I would’ve changed or hoped had happened differently. From the moment I woke up until I went to sleep I had a huge grin on my face and felt like it was the best day of my life. Since it was a small wedding and a short ways from home, we knew that everyone that was coming that day WANTED to be there and supported our love.’
What did you love about your venue?:
‘What did I NOT love about our venue hahaha… I loved that we were completely isolated and away from everything. It was just us and our family and friends. The rolling hills, the way the sunset hit the mountains and the fields of tall grass. The bar being outside and having the outdoor living area for people to relax and visit. How it was just a few minutes walk and we were completely encompassed in trees and solitude, and it was only Abraham and I for our first look. The stunning mountain views… it was completely perfect.’
What is your favourite memory of the day?:
‘Our favourite memory that we both agree on was our first look and the fact that we first said our vows when it was just the two of us in the middle of the forest and the sun shining down, that fact that we were away from all the craziness and it was just the two of us together. And then we LOVED the speeches, dancing, unreal food, unreal appetizers! And that we both went to bed at the end of it all (around 1:30am I think?) with the BIGGEST smiles on our faces and laughing in bed recounting all of our favourite memories from the day. It was perfect!’
What advice do you have for other couples?:
‘My advice for other couples is to make your wedding exactly what YOU want. Not what you think you’re supposed to do, what your parents want you to do, what the decorator thinks would look good.. make it yours. This is your one day to show a representation of you two coming together as one, let them see what that looks like! And on the actual day, SLOW DOWN, don’t be afraid to pass off tasks and responsibilities to other people (believe me, everyone wants to help the bride) because you want to ensure that you are experiencing EVERY moment. Take the time to sneak away with your new spouse later in the evening and just take a moment to look at how amazing of a party you put together… watch your friends take shots at the bar, your parents regaling stories about you and boasting to their friends about your accomplishments, take in the beauty of what you have created for that one day.’
“It’s almost as if Arya knew what was coming, because as soon as Abraham asked me to follow him out onto the deck she started to do her signature bounce and hop dance. I couldn’t calm her down! I thought Abraham was going to be showing me something outside, but instead he proposed on our back deck on a cold February evening under a clear sky full of stars with Arya at his side… it was an easy yes for me! And what makes everything even more special is the fact that those six small circular standalone diamonds in my wedding band are directly from my Mom’s wedding ring”
