Jessica wore a Tara Keely ballgown, purchased from Bisou Bridal with an intricately beaded bodice and tulle skirt. We love that Jessica added crinoline beneath her skirt to really capture her fairy tale vision!

The ceremony was held on the sweeping lawn of Cecil Green Park House. The stunning floral arch, under which the couple became husband and wife, was created by Stephanie at Balconi Floral Design Studio.

Modern Romance photographer, Ruby, describes the couple's ceremony choice perfectly 'The ceremony venue was picked to transform the couple's dream of having a fairy tale wedding into a reality. The overall style design was inspired by their trip to The Butchart Gardens in Victoria and Jessica's love of the color lavender.'
