Jessica & Robert A Romantic + Modern Banff Springs Wedding

September 16, 2018

Wow, what an incredible day. On the drive home from Banff I knew that when it was time to sit down and write about Jessica & Roberts (most refer to him as Bobby or Bob) wedding day, I would have a hard time narrowing it down and keeping it short and simple. But here I go!

First, Jessica met Bobby when she was serving at a local bar in Calgary after moving from Winnipeg. Bobby went there on a Thursday when she was working and they exchanged their number, clearing hitting it off with their natural chemistry. His first impression was that she might be a party girl but as he got to know her he realized she was super smart, strong, and could banter with him and his humor and put him in his place. He liked that. At the time Jess wasn’t too sure on living in Calgary and was only a week away from moving back to Winnipeg but then Jess made the first move by sending him messages on snapchat and Bobby, who was out of town, decided to fly through a hurricane to get to her. There was something about her that he couldn’t shake, he never thought he would find ‘the one’ but he had a really good feeling about her. They officially went on their first day at the Keg on August 29, 2017. Jess never ended up moving back home. 

They had a short dating life and a quick engagement. Bobby knew she was the one especially after she met his Mom, Kim, who is very close to Bobby and instantly loved her. He proposed in Punta Cana, Mexico on January 28, 2018 where he planned a beautiful dinner with flowers. After dessert he got down on one knee and proposed. 

They got married at the Fairmont Banff Springs hotel. The rain cleared over night dusting away the smoke and allowing for the most glorious sunshine to come through so you could see the beautiful Rocky Mountains as their back-drop as they exchanged their vows. Everything was gold, blush, and cream. Jessica wore a stunning trumpet styled dress from Galia Lahav with a hand-made 16 foot veil. 

Don’t let Jessica’s incredible bride style and impeccable taste convince you she isn’t the most down-to-earth bride. She is so sweet, chill, humble, easy-going, and fun. I love how Bobby always makes her belly laugh and nose crinkle, its so sweet. She is so quick to smile and down for anything. Once she has made up her mind up on something she goes for it. When I wanted to have her perched up on a rock but the water levels rose too high to walk there she hiked up that stunning Galia Lahav wedding dress and walked through the glaciar water in HEELS without hesitation. She climbed those rocks better than I did with flats. I am so utterly impressed with her boldness and love of life. Oh and did I mention that she requested chicken finger and fries for dinner while everybody else had stunning plates of steak and chicken? haha. Bobby always affectionately rolls his eyes at her cute little antics, he is so smitten with her. 

Bobby is incredibly charismatic, surprisingly sentimental, kind, and sensitive. Jess loves that she knows he would drop everything for her, take care of her and put her first. Bobby is a man who is loyal and takes after his mom in that he is nurturing and takes care of those he loves. I loved in his moms speech how she talks about making room at the table for all the people Bobby loves in their new home. I have no doubt that they will always take care of the people they love. Their hearts are so big.

Congratulations Mr & Mrs Jones! xo So happy I got to witness all the magic of this stunning day!
