Jessica and Marc got married at the beautiful Notre-Dame Cathedral in Ottawa and their reception took place at the Rideau Tennis Club. Their wedding was extra special for my family, since Jessica is my husband’s cousin and our daughter Julia was the flower girl!

What’s your favourite wedding day memory?

It’s hard to pick just one but the most emotional and favourite wedding memory was my brother’s speech. I never expected that he would bring up such beautiful childhood memories. He blew me away and brought me to tears.

Phil's speech

Marc’s dad gave a speech in which he called upon the two most beautiful women in the room. Everyone got worried when he was not looking at his wife. Everyone was relieved when he called up the grandmas and made them feel extra special.

Where did you go on your honeymoon?

We took a cruise Miami to the Bahamas and Turks Caicos.

What are you most looking forward to?  We are most looking forward to upgrading our home and starting a family.
