Wedding Bells (East) - - REAL WEDDINGS -

FROM JENNA: We were in­tro­duced by a mutual friend while at St. Francis Xavier Univer­sity. We moved to Cal­gary and then Hal­i­fax af­ter school. Cur­tis pro­posed to me on a re­turn visit to our old cam­pus— we planned the wed­ding for ex­actly one year later. Our eclec­tic wed­ding theme tied in three el­e­ments: sum­mer, wa­ter­colour and farm­ers’ mar­ket. The mar­ket as­pect was a given as the venue was the Hal­i­fax Sea­port Farm­ers’ Mar­ket! The wa­ter­colour and decor el­e­ments soft­ened the mod­ern venue and added a feel­ing of ro­mance. I loved the events lead­ing up to our wed­ding day. We were able to spend qual­ity time with fam­ily and friends who were vis­it­ing from out of town. An­other trea­sure was a video of well wishes from our near­est and dear­est that was made by my maid of hon­our. We watched it the morn­ing of the wed­ding and it was such a spe­cial mo­ment. We had a piñata guest­book—it was my favourite de­tail! I had this made in Toronto and it was stuffed with notes from the guests. We’re go­ing to break it open on our one-year an­niver­sary.
