Wedding couple brightens dreary December day in Chemainus

New Year’s Eve an anniversary date neither of the Millers are likely to forget

No conventional June wedding for this Chemainus couple.

Jordan and Krista (nee Doumont) Miller bucked the trend by getting married on New Year’s Eve at the Miller family household on Henry Road.

“We thought it would be fun to have a New Year’s wedding,” said Krista, as she gracefully moved from the couple’s accommodations for the night with bare arms exposed to the cold in her glorious wedding dress and into a waiting car driven by Jordan to be transported to the reception.

“We thought why not do something a little different and give everyone an extra reason to celebrate,” she added. “I am also bad at remembering dates so I gave myself something easy to remember. It will always be easy for Jordan and I to find something fun to do on our wedding anniversary.”

Krista also really loves the holiday season, she said, and their friends are always game for a good time on New Year’s Eve so they put two and two together for the magical wedding date.

Recent winter storms made conditions a little worse than normal so there was no surprise garden wedding. Everything was definitely “indoors,” Krista said.

Krista and Jordan are both 24 and graduated from Chemainus Secondary School in the same 2012 class. Krista will be well-known to many residents from the time she worked at Chemainus Foods.

The Millers currently live in Victoria. They have honeymoon plans for later in the year.

“We are going to Europe this May for three weeks,” noted Krista. “We will be visiting Berlin, Amsterdam, Paris and Barcelona.”
