Drew & Jess | Halifax Wedding Photographer

As soon as I sat down at Second Cup with Drew and Jess I could tell just how much they cared for each other and just how excited they were for their wedding day. They planned a beautiful wedding ceremony at Blomidon Estate Winnery followed by an amazing reception at a Boathouse in Windsor, NS.

As the wedding day approached I kept watching the weather and it was calling for nothing but rain. When we arrived at Jess’s place for the getting ready photos and I asked her what the rain plan was since they had an outdoor ceremony planned. She simply told me “Umbrellas”. At this point I knew we were in for some fun! If she could handle the weather then I knew we were going to have a great day. It poured and poured and as we neared the ceremony site you could see the rain slowing. It was like a small miracle. In a day full of rain it stopped just long enough for their ceremony at the winery and some family photos to follow.

These two had an amazing wedding party who were up for anything…… even for wedding party photos in the rain! It was completely pouring and everyone was super excited to do these photos, I was beyond thrilled that Drew and Jess would have these memories captured even if it was pouring.

As we drove from the ceremony to the reception the rain again stated to taper and we were able to do another full set of photos at this beautiful boathouse and along the dock and winding river.

Jess, Drew and their families didn’t leave out any details and their reception shows just how much love and work went into this pintrest worthy wedding! Aside from how gorgeous it all looked, the love you could feel in this room was incredible. I am sure you will be able to see it in these photos. Please enjoy a snapshot from this beautiful day!
