Jeff & Kim found us like a lot of people do through the internet. That was followed up by a phone call, then a consultation appointment was set which ended not being a good day and we tried to plan for another but it never worked out. The main problem being Kim was planning this wedding from another country!  We never ended up meeting until the day of the wedding. By then we had spent quite a few hours on the phone and felt like we knew each other.

Since Jeff is from the USA and that is where they met and live, he needed the day to not be too Canadian.  His brother in law had other idea’s, like giving Jeff’s father a Canadian hockey team Jersey!

The day was perfect for a wedding! They had decided to get married by the water at the Bear Estate in Collingwood. They also had many friends and family who were able to join them from all over the world. Which I know made their day.
