Jess-Ann and Derric are one of those couples that you could just sit and chat with for hours. They are so genuine and laid back yet super fun. I really loved getting to know these two and feel a bit sad that their wedding is over now. Their wedding ended up on a beautiful summer day. They had an dusk wedding that was held in Jess-Ann’s parents back yard. Prior to the ceremony, Jess-Ann and her bridemaids had their makeup completed at The Make-Up Lounge and Style Bar. Followed by hair styling and getting dressed at Jess-Ann’s cousin’s home. Derric and his groomsmen were getting ready at Jess-Ann’s parents house. Jess-Ann and Derric wanted to have a first look. I absolutely love when brides and grooms choose to do this, as it is such a private moment they share plus people tend to feel less nervous. Derric’s face says what he is feeling perfectly. When photos were complete, they were ready for their marriage ceremony. In Jess-Ann’s parents back yard, they were surrounded with love by their family and friends. Jess-Ann and Derric are also super cute. They decided to write their own vows and they ended up writing very similar things to one another. Afterwards, cocktails and speeches continued in the back yard and afterwards everyone headed to Pense Community Hall for the party. Here is their blog post.
