My fiancé Jan and I are getting married on August 20th this year in St. Jacobs, Ontario. I love event planning and already have most of our wedding details all set! Our theme is inspired by our trip to Italy we were supposed to enjoy last year. He was going to propose to me there but Covid hit.

Happily married 🎉
