It would be an understatement to say I’ve been looking forward to this wedding for a while. Not only was I revisiting one of my favorite churches in Calgary (Sacred Heart), but also finally checking out the amazing Hotel Arts for their reception. Honestly, the venues is why I do this. LOL just kidding. ;)
I remember when we first met, Jo and Henry expressed concern that I would be too energetic or crazy for them – but something must have clicked after all, haha! These two are incredibly athletic people, with Jo playing volleyball and Henry playing pro basketball in Europe for a long time leading up to their wedding. Jo had done a lot of traveling to see Henry play and to squeeze in as much wedding planning time as possible while she was there with him. I was very impressed with their organized nature in bringing everything together after being away from Calgary so many times for so long!
The one thing that really struck me was Henry’s enthusiasm and love for Jo. During his speech to Jo at the reception, there was barely a dry eye in the room (mine included). It was so genuine and unrehearsed; from the heart, suiting Henry’s personality very well. I can’t wait to see where this couple goes in the future. :)
