I first met Amelia and Jon over Skype when they were living in England, and you could tell just from our consult that they were incredibly kind and down to earth people.  One of the suggestions Amelia had for their engagement session, was meeting them out at the farm her horse (Tanis) was kept at.  Being an animal lover, it was a no brainer.  When I showed up, I met Petunia (the miniature horse), as well as some llamas, Tanis and puppies. Incorporating them into the shoot was so fun (except for the llamas who wanted nothing to do with us!).  What an amazing way to spend the evening, surrounded by animals and two incredible people!

How did you and your fiancé meet?

We met in highschool, but didn’t reconnect until about 7 years later when Jon texted and said ‘Hey I don’t know if you remember me, but this is Jon and I was wondering if you would be interested in going to a concert with me?’.  I was going through chemotherapy at the time, so I couldn’t go, but we started a friendship from that and eventually started dating.

What are you most looking forward to on your wedding day (aside from marrying your spouse)?

We were both looking forward to the speeches!

Tell us a little bit about your wedding!

It’s a jumble of all the things that we like.  From the music to the Star Wars cake, scrabble decorations and Harry Potter influences.  Although the general then is rustic, it’s really infused with non sensical things that make us, us.

What’s been the funnest process of planning your wedding so far?

We aren’t big on planning and organizing.  More so we liked picking out colours and decorations.  I loved dress shopping with my mom and Jon and I went suit shopping together which was a wonderful day.
