DAVID

educator + super producer + wordsmith + basketball extraordinaire + gamer + storyteller

When I first saw Jessica through the misty dance floor at Cheers West-Island, I knew that everything was about to change in my life. 8 years later, we are now ready to join hands and walk the journey of life together as a married couple. I couldn’t be happier or more grateful to spend my days with this incredibly kind beautiful specimen! We are very excited to be sharing our special moment with all our family, friends and loved ones!

MELISSA

maid of honor
crazy dog lady + adrenaline junkie

Ping Tao…. Where do I begin.
I remember it was love at first site, we took one look at each other and I knew… that you were going to be my thunder buddy. From Bull riding, to travelling in a cockroach infested sleeper train in Thailand, to tackling each other in the snow every chance we get, even passing out in a cirque du soleil show in Vegas. We’ve had some great times together. We’ve learnt a lot together, and made some kick ass memories that I’ll cherish forever. Words can’t describe how honored I am to be by her side, while she marries the love of her life. I can’t wait for the big day and all the activities leading up to it. David I promise to still have her in one piece by then… hopefully…I Love you like I love hoarding my scene points.

LINDSEY

bridesmaid
ling ling + linsanity

I first met Jessica in the 9th grade, and I will never forget those purple pants she had on. I thought she was so cool and wanted to ask her where she got them from but I was so shy. I’m glad I did. I found out that she was the nicest, honest, most genuine and fellow lover of purple pants and CATS all in one. Cat lovers till the end. It’s been a friendship of 16 years and here’s to many more years to come. I could not be more excited to be a part of your big day xoxoxo

EVA

bridesmaid
bijoux + polska

Jessica was my very first real friend in Canada. Many years later, I am honoured to be part of her bridal party. I don’t know where I would be without this girl to talk to, share stories with and create so many precious memories. Some of my favourites memories include our trip to Plattsburgh – we never made it, instead we ended up on a farm petting animals. This soon to be Mrs. Hodges is the sweetest and most compassionate person you will ever meet. Love her to pieces!

JONATHAN

best man
jj + brothers rock

“Piledrivers, tombstones, sharpshooters,” all the good things a little brother can experience right?! I just never got that 1-2-3! What an influence David has been! In so many ways his wisdom has kept me from slipping. It’s been amazing to be a recipient of his loyalty for so many years and I’m excited to see him become a great father and husband. There will never be another 1-2 punch like the Hodges brothers at WILBA. I’m proud to say that I’m the taller more artistic of the two. That said there is no beating David Hodges’ track record, he’s been my king since day one.
“The soul of Jonathan was knit with the soul of David, and Jonathan loved him as his own soul.”

CICILIC

groomsman
cj flavaz + so so slick

John Rennie high school grade 9,the year was 1999, two years after the death of famed rapper Notorious B.I.G. Coming from the hard streets of Ville Émard, I was quick to assume that David hodges wasn’t “real”. He walked the walk, talked the talk but something about him wasn’t convincing. After being involved with some of his hustles such as selling CDs and other stuff that I shouldn’t mention, I learned to understand that david took the hip hop scene to a much deeper level than I could ever imagine. David became my friend, took me under his wing, taught me the art of break dancing and made me an honorary member of the West Island Crew (W.I.C). Our friendship grew, and here we are 18 years later, celebrating this man’s wedding with his wonderful soulmate. I couldn’t be happier to be part of their special day. Cheers

SAMEER

groomsman
sam jam + zamir

Back in the day, sometime around ‘04, my first interaction with Dave was watching him running through the door at elementary school with a goofy smile and ball- he played basketball standing around 4ft tall, David didn’t act so small, he came up to me and told me he would dunk the ball. What a call, he missed and I rapped you’re dismissed. 10 years later, Dave and I shared a lot of one on one moments playing PS4, with hundreds of zombies on the floor. Late night blue Gatorade carpet stains yet no real gains. Finally 30 minutes at tims as we talked over things. Dave told me he would be getting some bling. I saw him put a ring on it with a smile so bright. She was his and he was hers. As his friend for life I knew this was love at first sight. Cheers! Dave and Jess, I wish you the best, looking forward to the big day. Sep 9, a day YUL never forget.
