The wonderful Master of Ceremonies for Jessica + Steve’s wedding reception kicked off the festivities by letting everyone know that the Captain had put on the fasten seat belt sign and then proceeded to outline where everyone could find the emergency exits. In fact, there were more than a few flight jokes throughout their entire wedding day, but really that should have been expected considering that both the bride and groom (and several other guests) work for (and met at) Porter Airlines. And luckily, despite the shenanigans and general fun-nature of the entire wedding party, Steve only used his pilot voice for fun and didn’t have to whip it out to get anyone back in line throughout the day.
We had our first Porter Airlines wedding last year and I learned then that these people tend to be super fun! And the second I met Jess this fact was very quickly reconfirmed and then proven even more on the wedding day itself!! We had an absolute blast all day long and I am so grateful to both Jess + Steve for allowing us to be a part of their amazing wedding celebrations!
I have learned over the years that a large portion of my day during weddings is spent cat-wrangling. Whether its family or wedding party members, people tend to wander off from time to time and we take it on as part of our job to keep everyone together as much as possible and Dave is often sent to go collect anyone who has gone off to find the bar (seriously though, 9 times out of 10 that’s where they have gone). So given that our typical wedding party size is about 8-10 people, the fact that Jess + Steve had a whopping 20 people standing with them during their wedding meant there was a little extra herding needed throughout the photos portion of the day. But as soon as you saw the interactions between the couple and their friends you could see why they had so many people with them and how they couldn’t possibly narrow down the list! And as an added bonus, there were some really fun people who really knew how to put the party in wedding party!!
Huge thanks to all of the amazing vendors who made this day so beautiful.
