Jen and Adam Lowe were married 08.13.11 in front of their family and friends at the beautiful Hockley Valley Resort. It was there at Hockley that Jen and Adam met many years ago - it is where they first learned about their mutual love of snowboarding. Unknown to them at the time, their love for each other would blossom as they both continued to pursue their love for snowboarding.
So naturally when it came time to choose a theme for their wedding, Jen and Adam knew instantly that it must involve snowboarding somehow. It began with the way Adam proposed on a snowboard - right on the hill. Written across the hill was “Jen V Marry Me?” as Adam snowboarded down to a tearful but happy Jen.
The theme continued as Jen and Adam spent an intimate day at the hill on their boards for their engagement shoot. Christine Reid Photography spent the day at Caledon Ski Club with Jen and Adam as they stole moments and showed off their skills during a beautiful winter day.
Guests were sent ski lift tickets as save the date cards created by a good friend of the couple; Cameron Ward, owner of Award Design. Following up with invitations that gave more detail and showed more of Cam’s creative talents.
A unique touch that guests are still talking about were the snowboarding magazine themed itineraries (another of Cam’s creations) created for the couple on their special day. Filled with stories written by the couple, letters from friends and family and photos from their engagement shoot, the magazines were an ingenious way to provide the guests with details of their special day . Designed after snowboarding magazines; VILO (a combination of the couple’s last names.. Vivian and Lowe) was a special wedding addition!
Once the wedding formalities were complete, friends and family walked to their tables and were greeted with individual, personalized “ski names” designed to look like ski signs. Taking a twist on the table numbers, each table was named after a ski hill or ski resort; like Caledon and Whistler.
All in all their wedding day was perfect, complete with a cake made by Ayoma Cakes, including a personalized, unique cake topper. Created to mimic Jen and Adam on a ski lift in their wedding attire.
Jen and Adam proved that true love is out there and that a wedding day is meant to be about the couple’s true passions. Jen and Adam combined their love for snowboarding and each other - and with the help of those who matter most to them created the perfect day.
