A Vibrant Garden Wedding – Jackie & Matt

Jackie and Matt met “the old-school” way: through mutual friends. Introduced to each other by their matron of honor and best man, Katie and Brian, they quickly became friends but waited a few years before dating. That drove Katie crazy, as she always said they were a perfect match. She has since been proven right, and the couple is now husband and wife.

On the night the couple was going to celebrate Matt’s birthday, Matt suggested he and Jackie take their dog, Westley, for a walk on the beach before dinner. Little to Jackie’s knowledge, Matt had much bigger plans for the evening. He eventually led Jackie and Westley out near the water where he got down on one knee and proposed. To add to the surprise, rose petals, candles, and champagne were placed on a bench up the hill – the same bench from when they had watched the sunset during one of their first dates. Instead of going to Matt’s birthday dinner, they cancelled their reservation and invited family and friends out to reveal the big news.

From the very start, Matt and Jackie wanted their wedding to be bright and colourful to reflect the couple’s adventurous and fun energy, which is why they were drawn to a colour palette of turquoise, fuchsia, and tangerine. Additionally, since Westley wasn’t present for the wedding, they wanted to honor him in a big way with puppy-themed decorations, DIY photo-booth props, and doggy-bag wedding favors, filled with cookies. From the gorgeous peonies to the photo display of family, Matt and Jackie loved everything, especially their custom-designed wedding invitations by one of Jackie’s bridesmaids, which were all hand-illustrated with the couple and their dog on the front.

There were a lot of special moments that the couple cherished. For Jackie, it was getting to walk down the aisle with both her mother and father and for Matt, it was seeing Jackie walk down the aisle. But together, their favorite part of the day was their first look, as it was one of the few times they were able to be with one another without an agenda.
