We met on April 20th, 2013 at The Hockey Shop. Our first date was on October 25th, 2013 when we went for bubble tea. On January 3rd, 2014 we made it official. Three and a half amazing years went by filled with hockey, travel, school, love, enthusiasm, and devotion. Jordan then made the move to China to play hockey on July 1st, 2017. After three months apart, Alannah joined him there on October 3rd, 2017. On November 14th, 2017, in Shanghai, Jordan popped the question and Alannah said YES! Well if we’re being honest, she forgot to even answer the question, but Jordan reminded her and then a “yes!” came out between tears.
We thought about taking the time to plan our wedding for 2019. But then we couldn’t think of a good reason to wait. We want to be married, so we’re getting married quick.
We have set our wedding for June 2nd, 2018 on Pender Island. We chose Pender Island for a few reasons. We wanted to be married at a place that had significance to us. We also wanted to be married outdoors at a location with a naturally beautiful backdrop. Finally, we wanted our wedding to feel like a weekend getaway full of fun for us and everyone invited. Pender Island checked off all these boxes. We have been visiting Pender for years and have made many good memories here. It’s likely that our wedding weekend will top all the other memories!
Explore our website to learn more about the event, the island and more. Please RSVP through your evite to let us know if you are able to make it to our celebration. We understand that traveling to Pender is asking a lot and not everyone will be able to make it. Please do not feel obligated to make the trip, but if you are willing we would love to have you!
