Jordan and Adam met in math class on their first day of Grade 10 and started dating the following year on October 18, 2010. They ended up getting married exactly ten years, ten months and ten days later, although that wasn’t their original—or even secondary—plan.
During a weekend, Jordan stopped to take a selfie with Adam in the middle of frozen Lake Louise. Adam then wrapped her in a big hug before getting down on one knee. They shared this beautiful moment alone but couldn’t wait to celebrate with their friends and family. The onset of the pandemic, however, meant they would have to wait a bit longer than anticipated.
The Big Day
After their first two wedding venues fell through due to COVID-19, Jordan and Adam settled on their third choice—the brand new Always Occasions Event Space in Manchester Square. Theirs was the first wedding ever held at the space, and it turned out to be the perfect choice. The venue was large enough to accommodate 60 guests without feeling too cramped or too open, and the upstairs bar area allowed for a quieter space for people to hold conversations.
Jordan’s favourite moment was seeing her groom’s eyes well up as she approached the altar—something the typically unemotional Adam insisted would never happen. Adam was happy to have all their loved ones together after having to spend so much time apart. Now that the party is over, Jordan and Adam are excited to steer their lives in whatever direction they choose.

Advice from the Newlyweds
“Don’t sweat the small stuff. We decided on our must-haves for the wedding and everything else we were able to do was a bonus on top of it.”
