Sarah & Nick

The Coast - Halifax Weddings Guide - - Wedding Album -

High school sweet­hearts Sarah Rud­den and Nick Roach have spent the last few years liv­ing in Ot­tawa, but it was never a ques­tion that the pair would say their vows in their home prov­ince of Nova Sco­tia. “That’s where our fam­ily is, that’s where we grew up and we just feel the most con­nected to there,” says Sarah. The cou­ple, who had been to­gether for more than nine years be­fore they de­cided to get mar­ried, had a vi­sion for a ca­sual and re­laxed gath­er­ing.

Sarah orig­i­nally had some grand ideas about flow­ers and place set­tings, but she quickly re­al­ized the idea of a “Pin­ter­est wed­ding” wasn’t re­al­is­tic, and “as long as we end up mar­ried at the end of the day, it doesn’t mat­ter.”It took some ef­fort to so­lid­ify the guest list, which Sarah says “was the hard­est thing that we dealt with.” Both Sarah and Nick wanted to keep the wed­ding on the in­ti­mate side. Even­tu­ally, they were able to nar­row it down to less than 50 peo­ple who got to en­joy “a whole week­end of fun” in Pug­wash. “We just wanted to drink and eat good food, and we got all of that.” It’s the lit­tle mo­ments, Sarah ex­plains, that she’ll re­mem­ber most. One par­tic­u­larly cher­ished mem­ory took place the day of the nup­tials when both Nick and Sarah hap­pened to wake up early. They took ad­van­tage of the extra time for a ro­man­tic stroll down to their venue at the Thinkers Lodge, then to the beach. “Just like lit­tle, smaller mo­ments like that I think,” says Sarah, “I didn’t ex­pect to have those things.”
