Jonel + Matt’s Rainy Pictou Lodge Wedding Day

Jonel and Matt were married on August 18th, with a ceremony and reception at Pictou Lodge. 

Jonel and Matt’s Rainy Pictou Lodge Wedding Day

These two beautiful souls are surrounded by the best of people! Their love and warmth were so magical to experience, especially in contrast to the very Nova Scotian weather on their wedding day. It poured the whole day and never let up for a second! But despite the wetness, these two glowed. They embraced, loved, and cherished every minute of the day, despite what Mother Nature threw at them. Anyone watching them knew they were prepared to weather anything together.

Besides the weather, though, the thing that stuck out most in this wedding was the behind-the-scenes prep that they did and that the vendors put in. For example, Matt hand-picked all of the locations for their photos, adding a personal touch of their own history to the images. Matt had such an eye for beautiful, sentimental locations! We always enjoy the time we spend with my couples on their wedding portraits, since it allows them time alone to relax, breathe, and simply enjoy being together. But to go through all of those carefully-picked locations with them was even more special because of Matt’s good work!

Hannah from Elegant Productions also worked some serious magic behind the scenes. Having a professional handle your wedding is definitely worth its weight in gold—and Hannah went above and beyond to produce a perfect day! Also, as you can probably tell from all the stationery pictures, we were absolutely OBSESSED with the custom-made details from Elegant Paper Co.!

Of course, it was more than just the details that we loved. We can’t forget all the craziness happening on the dance floor. That made for the best stories around! 

Matt & Jonel, thank you for being an amazing example of standing the test of the Nova Scotian weather! Thanks also to Elegant Productions and Elegant Paper Co. for pulling together some truly astounding details!
