Movie followers yell ‘motion’ on a double-feature wedding ceremony

In 2013, Teagan Chevrier met Tyrell Lisson on Fb, the place the 2 started chatting in a bunch for incoming first-year college students to Brock College and observed they’d related pursuits: each had been movie research majors and loved listening to Fall Out Boy and Deliver Me the Horizon. They agreed to satisfy up in the course of the second day of orientation week to wander round campus – and ended up spending the following eight hours collectively. “We had a lot in widespread, it was spooky,” Chevrier, a movie editor, says. “The time simply flew by.”

The 2 shortly bonded over their mutual love of pop-punk bands in addition to films and status tv. She launched him to “A Nightmare on Elm Avenue.” He confirmed her “Breaking Dangerous.” Inside per week and a half, they had been formally an merchandise.

The couple held their second wedding at the Elm Hurst Inn & Spa in her hometown of Ingersoll, Ont.

At first, Lisson was drawn to Chevrier’s punk aesthetic. “After we met, she was sporting cut-off jean shorts and a band T-shirt, and I believed, ‘That’s cool,’” Lisson, a movie producer, says. And he shortly realized her temperament completely complemented his. “She’s the yin to my yang,” he says. “I can get fairly wound up about issues, and she or he’s there to floor me.” Chevrier felt like she had lastly met somebody she might speak to without end.

They usually’ve been speaking ever since. After six years of relationship, Lisson determined to suggest whereas in Hawaii on a trip with Chevrier’s household. On the second day of the journey, whereas the remainder of the household was watching hockey playoffs, Lisson steered they take a stroll on Waikiki Seashore; he remembers desperately attempting to masks the silhouette of the ring field in his swim trunks by shoving his hand in his pocket. Uneven waves crashing onto the shore saved Lisson from getting down on one knee, however he clinched the “sure” regardless.

They selected 10/10/2020 as their wedding ceremony date as a result of Chevrier appreciated the symmetry and chosen The Elm Hurst Inn & Spa in her hometown of Ingersoll, Ont. because the venue as a result of, she says, “we didn’t wish to do one thing that was ‘fashionable metropolis,’ however we additionally didn’t wish to go full-on ‘wedding ceremony in a barn.’”

The bride is a film editor and the groom a producer, which explains the clapboard.

As a result of pandemic restrictions, the Elm Hurst pushed their wedding ceremony into 2021, however somewhat than wait, the couple opted to maintain the particular date they’d already picked out. They reduce down their visitor listing from 150 to 25 and hosted an out of doors wedding ceremony in Chevrier’s mother and father’ yard. Chevrier sourced classic mismatched glassware from flea markets and thrift retailers to keep away from drink mix-ups and served particular person picnic baskets full with a single serving of prosecco. Her Kleinfeld gown didn’t arrive in time, so Chevrier discovered a classic Seventies wedding ceremony gown on Kijiji, which her grandmother altered right into a two-piece set. Lisson wore an H&M swimsuit he already owned, and the couple exchanged last-minute $70 rings from Mejuri. Although little went as deliberate, Chevrier says, “it was an ideal day with no stress as a result of it was so low-key.”

The spotlight of the ceremony concerned handfasting, an historic Celtic custom by which a knot is tied across the couple’s fingers to suggest their intent to marry. (It additionally occurs to be the origin of the phrase “tying the knot.”) Chevrier was drawn to the custom due to her Scottish heritage and since she “appreciated the concept that if the scenario isn’t good, you’re doing this for now with the understanding you’ll revisit it and make it official.”

On Oct. 30, 2021, a bit greater than a 12 months later, the couple made it official, as their authentic invitees descended on the Elm Hurst. Their second wedding ceremony was virtually a “carbon copy” of the primary, says Lisson, with the identical florist and photographer – solely this time issues went in line with plan. Chevrier wore the Kleinfeld gown and Lisson wore a brown tweed swimsuit he had custom-made for the event. The Ingersoll Pipe Band carried out “Highland Cathedral” as Chevrier walked down the aisle. Although the couple had been legally married at their first wedding ceremony, they carried out the handfasting ceremony once more to satisfy the promise they’d made to one another the 12 months earlier than.

The ceremony included handfasting, an ancient Celtic tradition involving a knot.

On the second wedding ceremony, they employed an revolutionary manner for the friends to request the bride and groom kiss with out clinking glasses: answering film trivia. Chevrier, who wrote questions for every desk considering there wouldn’t be a lot curiosity, didn’t count on the aggressive showdown. “Tables had been combating different tables to get the solutions,” she says.

The marriage was an impromptu live performance when groomsmen took turns taking part in songs by the Band and the Proclaimers. A good friend wrote the couple a track as a marriage present and carried out it for the primary dance – and had it pressed onto seven-inch vinyl so they may treasure it without end.

Now, the pair can cherish double the nuptial recollections. “We’re so fortunate we bought to have two weddings,” Lisson says. “Individuals frequently make the joke, When are you going to have a 3rd?”


The pair bonded over their loved of pop punk.
