Jess & Shelton's Canada Day


I met Jessica in undergrad: we worked together on a team project and really hit it off. After I graduated, Jess pursued her dreams to become a French chef at Le Cordon Bleu and travelled to South Korea for half of her apprenticeship. Sadly, adult life got into the way and it's been a while since our last hangout.... until 2 and a half months ago, when she announced that she was engaged and had less than 2 months to plan her wedding! I knew Jess had a crazy, thrill-seeking side to her but planning an Asian-Indian wedding from scratch within 2 months? That's pretty darn ambitious! But I gotta say, they pulled it off and had a beautiful ceremony and reception. Jess and Shelton celebrated their love on July 1st and it couldn't have been more fitting date for families of two cultures to merge together on Canada's 150th birthday.

Shelton and Jessica have known each other since high school but it wasn't until a few years ago that they started hanging out one on one and seeing each other in a different light. I always find it amazing to hear these types of stories. To think that our soulmate was right next to us this whole time :P It gives me goosebumps hihi!
