“I had my two best friends and my sister as my bridesmaids,” the newly-wed bride told the Huffington Post. “My sister was living in Australia, and Jess literally poured herself into my wedding. She planned a full trip to Montreal for my bachelorette, hosted an incredible shower and just did a lot leading up to the wedding.”

Jess’ husband was already thinking of proposing, so Jessica had the amazing idea for the proposal to happen at her own wedding.

“He told me, ‘I don’t want to take anything away from your wedding trip,’” the bride said.

But then, the two had a brilliant idea. My sister said, ‘what if you didn’t throw the bouquet, but you passed it to Jessica, and Adam was waiting behind, down on one knee?’” she said. “And we just lost it.”

When the time come for the bride to toss the bouquet, everyone was excited but especially Jess’s husband and sister who knew what was going to happen next. And Adam obviously.

“The very last ‘wedding’ duty of my day was to have the bouquet toss. Nobody knew but my sister, and the photographer and my husband, James.”

“So then we had the song change from ‘Man I Feel Like A Woman’ to Bruno Mars’ ‘Marry Me.’ I started walking to Jessica, and there was a moment where we locked eyes, and as I went to pass her the bouquet, she started hysterically sobbing, saying ‘no, are you serious?’”

“I said, ‘yes, turn around!’”

The wedding photographer Ross Dance, captured the amazing moment.

“I was looking forward to that all day. Even walking down the aisle I was so excited about it happening.”

“Just her face alone, her reaction alone was worth it. I was like, I’m done, she can have it from here on out.”

According to Jess weddings are about love and sharing that love.

“The way my husband and I looked at it was sometimes the actual concept of a wedding gets lost. It’s to marry your best friend and spend the rest of your life with them and celebrating love and sharing your love with everyone else.”

“My best friend was starting her love story — I didn’t even think about that being me giving up my day. I have love and I want people close to me to have that love too.

I like books, flowers, makeup, and long walks. That pretty much sums me up.
