Morgan + Jonny - Oceanstone Wedding


Morgan and Jonny were married on July 7th, with a ceremony and reception at the Oceanstone Resort in Nova Scotia.

These two soulmates rocked this day. The only thing better than their love, their day, and their amazing Oceanstone wedding was how freaking dapper they looked. Morgan’s dress was absolutely stunning, classic, and oh so perfect for her. And Jonny rocked his complementary cream suit!

This love story is spans continents. Jonny, a Nova Scotian boy, fell in love with Morgan, a beautiful California girl. She was the the laughter, the smile, the essence that he wanted to add to his life. Jonny was the man who hit everything on the list of the dream man, relationship and marriage. Just watching the two of them, it was clear that they could take on the world together. 

Morgan and Jonny’s Oceanstone Wedding

It all took place at the awe-inspiring backdrop that is Oceanstone Resort. I couldn’t think of a better place to capture the romance that these two shared, especially since it was the setting for the most authentic ceremony I have ever witnessed. They wrote their own vows; the whole thing was simply art! They dived into the heart, soul, and essence that was them. You could feel the raw emotion and soul of these two as a couple. 

When the golden hour came around, the maid of honour, Asia (who is also a super talented Californian photographer!!!), helped us to sneak out to the beach. As soon as we hit the sand, you could feel it: they were free. Free from the weight of the day, from the expectations, from all the work that goes into the ceremony. They finally got to relax, play, and frolic at the beach. As you can imagine, those images of freedom and joy are my favourites from the wedding.

Morgan & Jonny, I can’t thank you enough for letting me capture your day and for allowing me to be a small part of your story.  I feel privileged down to my very soul to have borne witness to your beautiful wedding vows, and I hope you look back on these pictures for many years to come!
