Lord nelson Wedding - Stephanie and Mark

I will always remember the first time I met Steph Brown! I walked into an almost empty hotel banquet room. I saw her delegating tasks and organizing the room. I wanted to say hello and let her know I was going to be photographing the day and her decor. Then apparently as I was frozen in my introverted self-conflict she turned around and saw me. The second I saw Steph smile at me I knew I had a friend. I'm certain that within two minutes of talking we were both giggling and making jokes like crazy. From there we have always been the greatest friends. 

So when Steph asked me to capture her wedding I was beyond thrilled! Though Steph is one of the funniest chicks I know and she is also a uber talented designer!  She runs, owns and operates Sky's the Limit Design. Her eye for color, design and beautiful aesthetic is unparalleled. We have worked on a few projects together and we even had this shoot featured on Burnetts Boards recently! 

Now back to Stephanie and Mark! 

With Mark and Steph's wedding the love shared for each other and the love for their friends was the highlight! Throughout the day we laughed our butts off and cried happy tears. Of course, this was all set in the prettiest backdrop of Steph's Design at the Lord Nelson. 

Steph and Mark's friends and family were all such a sweet bunch! It was no surprise that they were all as fun and welcoming as the couple themselves! This was just a day of great vibes all around. I wish you guys nothing but a lifetime of happiness and success together! I hope these images share just a fraction of the good times we had that day :) 

Also, just want to give some amazing shout outs to vendors involved in the day! 

First, is the Halifax wedding venue The Lord Nelson. All the staff were so helpful and couldn't do enough to accommodate us. Staff and management at the Lord Nelson were attentive and went above and beyond to make sure everything was executed perfectly. I can't say enough good things! 

For flowers we had Penny at The Blossom Shop!  Those flowers, thistles and greenery are just so gorgeous! The perfect compliment to the perfect wedding day. 

We also had the oh so lovely Chantelle Brown doing the makeup for the ladies. Luckily Ive had the opportunity to work with her a few weddings this year. The brides always look like a more gorgeous version of themselves! She is such a sweet addition to any day :) 

Later in this post you are going to see the most stunning dessert bar! Sweet Rae makes the most delicious cakes and treats! I cant recommend her enough. All these little treats were a big hit at the wedding. 

Tieing all the decor and prettiness together was the stationery of Andrea from Lupin Designs. Just check out all the custom items she created for Steph and Mark's day dabbled through the images! 

A big shout out to Steph MacKinnion who was the second shooter for the day! Can't thank you enough :) 

Though this crowd was all looking forward to kicking it on the dancefloor. There was Scott of True North DJs keep the crowd hopping. I swear this man has a super human ability of knowing exactly what song to play! To all the future brides out there definitely contact Scott if you want a bustling dancefloor!

This is just a small snippet of all the love we captured! I hope you enjoy Mark and Steph!!
