FROM KATIE: The theme for the wed­ding was mod­ern clas­sic with Mar­itime charm.

It was im­por­tant to us to truly show­case P.E.I. with a real East Coast am­bi­ence through­out. Hav­ing an oys­ter shucker at the cock­tail hour, fea­tur­ing an il­lus­trated map of the is­land on the in­vi­ta­tions and host­ing an East Coast kitchen party for guests the night be­fore the wed­ding were just some of the ways we in­cor­po­rated is­land cul­ture into the cel­e­bra­tion. We were so lucky to get mar­ried on the red cliffs of P.E.I. with the Northum­ber­land

Strait as our back­drop. We were also blessed with the most per­fect P.E.I. weather. See­ing each other for the first time on our wed­ding day, just the two of us out on a cliff by the ocean, was a once-ina-life­time ex­pe­ri­ence. We flew our friends Rob­bie & Matthew from Toronto to P.E.I. to

per­form as the live band at the re­cep­tion. It turned out to be one of the best de­ci­sions we made in the whole wed­ding-plan­ning process. They had the dance floor packed the en­tire night and their beat­box­ing and mash-ups blew every­one away. Best wed­ding band ever!
