These two met in the old fashioned way back in 2012 at one of Nanaimo's staple restaurants - Original Joes (OJ's as its known!). After playing a round of golf, or hockey, Jeremy would often come in with his friends, and ready to greet them at the door was Cher, a fresh faced hostess. There was chemistry right from the get go, and they were both interested, but already in committed relationships. Over the next few years, they dated other people, but Cher thought she had missed her opportunity with Jeremy. Eventually, their paths crossed again, the stars aligned and it was love at first sight - but in a new way. Jeremy asked Cher to go for a drink, and they hit it off immediately! They were practically inseparable from that first date on!
Planning a wedding during Covid was definitely a challenge - it was moved, and then moved back, restrictions change, locations adjusted and new plans made. Its been NUTS. But their excitement for the big day never wavered, I mean, the SCHOOL BUS to transport the wedding party was already booked! And yes...it was amazing.
Theirs was a ceremony first for us as well - they tied the knot pond-side at the Nanaimo Golf Club and it was STUNNING! Framed with towering weeping willows, with a view of the pond, lily pads & Departure Bay in the distance, it could not have been more stunning. This year has been about seeing things from a different perspective, and going with the flow (in a massive way!). When the reception couldn't happen in its original location, Cher's mom offered up her gorgeous backyard with views of the Georgia Straight. Tables were layered in, the dance floor was improvised and most importantly, a good time was had by all! We lucked out in a big way on Cheremy's day - it was the first day that the wild fire smoke started to make its way into the blue island sky, but it stayed mostly clear right up until the end of the evening! BOOM! So many great moments from Cher & Jeremy's incredible day, and we were honoured to be a part of it!
