North Vancouver Budget Wedding: Jen + Jamie

North Vancouver Budget Wedding: Jen + Jamie

Jen + Jamie - Melissa Montgomery Photography I’m excited to feature Jen and Jamie’s wedding, as submitted by their photographer and Vancity Vendor Melissa Montgomery Photography. The couple envisioned their September 6th wedding with a rustic theme, earthy tones, and they executed it beautifully for under $20,000. I love all the details they had from the adorable bow ties to the photo wall and the fact that they held their wedding at both sets of parents’ houses. How much more personal can it get? You’ll just have to keep scrolling to see for yourself. Here are some thoughts from their photographer:

“I love their story. They first met in the same grade 2 class! Can you imagine?…fate would definitely bring them together. :) I loved the intimacy of their wedding. The ceremony was held at the bride’s parents’ house where she grew up, in their backyard and the reception was held at the groom’s parents’ house in their backyard.  They live about 10 minutes apart from each other so it was an ideal venue for them. Jamie+Jen also wanted to get married in North Van because that is where they grew up. With simple, elegant and rustic décor, the wedding was beautifully done creating an earthy theme. When Jen spoke at the ceremony, there was not a dry eye in the place, reciting their own vows, making it so personal and intimate.”

The couple wrote a letter to each other and sealed them inside a wooden box with a bottle of wine. On their 10th anniversary, they will open the box and read the letters while sharing this fantastic bottle of wine. How neat!
