I’ve always believed that things happened for a reason…. Back in March, when my only July wedding had to suddenly cancel on me, I was sure I wouldn’t rebook the date. Another couple had inquired with me about that date, but because I was already booked, I referred them to another photographer. Fast forward to May 1, and I get a message from Lindsay, asking if I was available for a wedding July 12. I met up with her and Jeff the next day, as they happened to be in Miramichi (they were living in Alberta but recently relocated to NB). We chatted for a good while, and realized the people we had in common. I knew Jeff’s sister, and my cousin Shawn and his wife Natalie (who I went to school with since elementary school) were good friends of their’s. They told me all about their plans for the wedding, which was to take place in Grand Lake – everything was going to be outside, relaxed, fun… and lots of vintage props (Lindsay is actually getting into rental of these props, which you’ll get to see some of shortly). I knew we were on the same page as far as style of photography, and would get along just great – so I was pretty psyched when I heard from them the next day that I was the one they wanted to document their wedding day!!
Exactly one week before the wedding, Arthur blew through…. and did significant damage to most of NB, including the wedding location. Lots of people helped get everything cleaned up (and the power came back on the day before the wedding), and honestly, I wouldn’t have even known how bad it was…. everything looked so beautiful! I felt like I walked straight into something off of Pinterest, to be honest.
Lindsay and Jeff, I am so grateful that circumstances worked out for me to be able to photograph your wedding…. I barely knew you at all, but honestly you feel like old friends now. I wish you guys a lifetime of love and happiness!!! ♥
