For Jordana and Jeffrey, their love of nature and family were centrestage at their July 14, 2012 nuptials. The woodland country-theme was fitting considering the couple’s love of the outdoors. It even set the stage for Jeffrey’s proposal – he popped the question in a meadow of wildflowers while the two were on a hike.
The couple’s favourite moment was driving up to the reception hall in Jeff’s 1979 Camero. “All the kids at the wedding ran out to greet us,” shared the couple. “The sun was starting to set and the hall looked exactly how we imagined it – it really felt like walking into a woodland.”
Almost every detail of the wedding, held at Grandview Acres, was done by either a family member or close friend, which made the whole experience so personal with each detail really representing a piece of the couple’s life.
