Issue No.1

the story of jayne + connor

"We lost touch until one day him and his sisters happen to wander into the restaurant and were sat at my table. This time around he made sure to ask me out before he left and we went out on our first date later that night."

We met in april 2011 - he was a starter on the football team and i was a trainer for the Men's basketball team. We met for the first time at the year-end varsity athletics gala, and got to talking - he even went out of his way to seek out club soda from a corner store when my late night pizza ended up on my dress.

We exchanged numbers that night but as final exams geared up we lost touch, until one day him and his sisters happened to wander into the restaurant I was working at and were randomly sat at my table. This time round he made sure to ask me out before he left the restaurant and we went out on our first date later that night.




the proposal

We had such a busy summer working and traveling that we decided to throw an end of summer BBQ with our friends and family, little did I know Connor had an ulterior motive in mind. While I was busy party planning, Connor made other secret plans of his own;

"He drove out to my Mom's house to ask for her permission to marry me and then let her in on his plan."

She was so excited and surprised that all she could say at first was, "oh shit!"  believe me, it takes a lot to make my mom swear.

On the day of the BBQ, everything seemed like just another fun party. As the sun set Connor suggested we make a little speech to thank everyone for coming; everything started out normally until suddenly he started saying things "Jayne's such an amazing part of my life, and I don't know what I would do without her" and then he got down on one knee in front of everyone and proposed. We always joke how Connor managed to convince me to plan my engagement party without me even knowing it!

"Jayne, over the past few years, we’ve built a wonderful life together. One filled with laughter, love, great friendships and adventures. I promise to be there for you and put your needs before mine because from this point forward, we are an inseparable team.

Our wins and losses, our elation and our pain are measured together."



"Side by side, I know we will live life to the fullest and not let nothing stand between us. Together, we can accomplish anything. It is my privilege and my joy to be at your side for the rest of my life."




first dance

TIME: 9:00 PM





Before this moment you have been many things to one another — acquaintance, friend, companion, lover, dancing partner, and even teacher, for you have learned much from one another in these last few years.

Now you have said a few words that take you across a threshold of life, and things will never quite be the same between you. For after these vows, you shall say to the world,

this is my husband,

this is my wife.
