We are Jessika and Colin. We have been together 10 years and have 3 amazing boys! Eric is 9, Ethan is 7 and Ehden is 4.
We met because Colin did a favor for a friend and picked up my niece from my house. I opened my door, he said "Wow" and the rest is history!
Soon after meeting we became pregnant and parents to an amazing little boy! Seeing Colin as a Dad made me fall in love all over again. Watching him with his son, I knew that this was forever. That even though it was so fast, it was real.
Over the next 2 years we bought our first house and welcomed baby number two. We had no idea how to do this, but we were figuring it out together.
When baby number three came in 2010, he was so sick. He had a hole in his heart and went through so much at the start of his life. We almost lost him. Colin and I were each others rock. Two whole years would pass before we could finally breathe a little in knowing our baby was going to live a normal life and was cleared from the cardiologist. I don't know how I would have gotten though that time without him. Everyone has someone. He is my someone who reminded me that I needed to be strong for them, all the while he would be strong for us all. So selfless.
On a happier note. We FINALLY got engaged in April 2013. We set our date for July 1st 2016 as that's the anniversary of our first date!! Canada Day fireworks at Riverside Park, where were still go every year with our babies and sit under that same big 'ol tree and watch the fireworks together!
Then we were thinking and decided that we shouldn't wait. Why wait?!
We have been together for so long. I have been waiting for so long to be this mans wife, been though so much and we love each other so much more then you can begin to know and comprehend.. So we moved up our date to August 8th 2015, giving us 7 months to go!!
3 quirky facts about us. Oh gosh;
Colin has the biggest sense of humor and can laugh at anything, anywhere, anytime.. Where I, Jessika do have a sense of humor, but am not always a laugh out loud kind of girl, most of the time its not as funny as he makes it, where he is almost in tears laughing, you'll probably find me, laughing at him!!
Colin and my birthdays are exactly 2 weeks apart. My parents and his parents birthdays are exactly 2 weeks apart and our 2 oldest boys birthdays are exactly 2 weeks apart (and 2 years) Thought that was cool!! (meant to be, maybe!?)
Lastly and probably the most 'quirkiest' is that it was defiantly love at first sight when he showed up at my door that day and I cannot wait to be Mrs. Fawcett!!!
We would be honored to have Jono and Laynie photograph our Wedding Day because their images are breathtaking!! The cost of photography to get images like theirs are completely out of our budget. We are a one income family and are paying for our wedding entirely on our own. It would mean the world to be chosen for this gift.
