OVER BEING TOLD WHAT TO DO?
But finding the right people to help you on your wedding day is a CHALLENGE.
Will they accept and support you and your relationship? What about your loved ones? Will they be treated with respect or whispered about when you're out of earshot?
How can you make sure your celebration has a minimal impact on the environment? How can you stay true to the principles that guide your daily lives?
Who will help make sure you have time to relax and enjoy your day? Who will actually enhance your celebration?
Take a deep breath. You're in the right place!
Because a better wedding experience is inevitable if we work together!
You are pumped to be engaged to the love of your life, and you are STOKED to celebrate!
Traditional American Wedding? Non-American Wedding? Blending cultures or religions? Interracial? LGBTQ+? No wedding party? Don't drink alcohol? Vegan? Don't want a first dance? The list goes on...
I can’t tell you how much I DON’T CARE. But, like, in a good way! ;)
What I do care about is that you are able to celebrate YOUR relationship and YOUR marriage YOUR way. After all, this ain’t your mother’s wedding!
Let’s combine your vision and my expertise to create and document the absolute best experience you can imagine!
Let’s start off with a lil statistic (I come from the world of mathematics, afterall!):
According to Wedding Pro, the company that runs The Knot and WeddingWire, 70% of couples want a more sustainable wedding.
Chances are, that’s you! And, you guessed it, I want to be a part of creating and celebrating more sustainable weddings!
Together, we’ll go after the big three the best we can: reuse, sourcing, and waste management.
No greenwashing. No judgment. Just the collective effort to do the VERY BEST WE CAN.
Here’s my hot take: your wedding should be fun and enjoyable to you, whatever that looks like!
Does an all out party with 300 family and friends sound like the most you? AWESOME.
How about a super intimate gathering with 1o of your closest people? AMAZING.
Something in between? Or maybe just the two of you? LET’S DO IT.
YOUR people. YOUR personalities. YOUR wedding.
Jessica was incredibly helpful and fun to work with!
My (now) husband and I were looking for a photographer that would help us create fun memories and make taking photos not feel like an obligation.
She helped us to be comfortable in front of the camera, and helped us to make a plan and set a schedule!
If we had any questions, she was happy to answer them. She was easy to communicate with, and we had no worries about photos day of because we felt we could trust her to take good photos.
She delivered the photos in a timely manner and they were incredibly easy to work with! I'm grateful she was on our team, and I highly recommend working with her!

Were you looking for personal info about me?
For starters, I am not Canadian...so why did I choose a maple leaf as part of my logo?
It’s a bit of a story — I grew up with a maple tree in both my front and back yards. The backyard tree had a tire swing on which I spent a decent portion of my childhood, and it also shaded our sandbox (which was actually a large tractor tire filled with sand). My sisters and I played with the helicopters in the spring and the leaves in the fall, and our golden retriever loved to run circles around it.
There is also a lovely maple tree in my front yard now, in my and my husband’s first home together.
In 2018, my dad kept talking about wanting a tattoo after watching my sister and me collect them over the years. The three of us decided to pick a leaf from my mom and dad’s front yard maple, preserve it (you know, like your 4th grade leaf project), and bring that to a tattoo artist. My dad, youngest sister, and I have matching tattoos of the same leaf from our family home.
When it came time to pick a logo, I felt that this maple leaf symbol was not only a representation of me and my family, but also of something I care deeply about — trees and nature. I am eternally grateful to the maples in my life — their shade, entertainment, and beauty.
So, while I am not Canadian, I feel connected to maple trees and decided to honor that by incorporating them into my business!
