Allison & Jeff's Dartmouth Wedding


On a cold, winter day in January, I got to hang out with an absolutely lovely group of family and friends while we celebrated Allison and Jeff as they tied the knot in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. Sometimes, you’ve just got to hand it to modern central heating! 

A Tailored Wedding Experience with Sky’s the Limit Wedding & Events

The day started off with Allison and her family inviting me into their beautiful home to capture the intimate and romantic celebrations of her and Jeff's special day. The had hired a fantastic wedding planning service called Sky’s the Limit to come into their home and transform it into one of the coziest, wedding-ready celebration venues I have ever seen!

This wasn’t Sky’s the Limit’s first rodeo. They were established in 2009 by owners, Stephanie Brown and Mark Jones. Stephanie had been involved in the wedding industry for years and decided to branch out on her own to build the company of her dreams, Wedding Events by Sky’s the Limit! She is a certified wedding planner through WPIC and has become an award-winning wedding designer. Needless to say, Allison and Jeff were in great hands and the day couldn’t have been any more perfect! 

Cozy Wedding Celebrations captured by Chantal Routhier Photography

This was just such a gorgeous wedding to be a part of. Beautiful place settings with hand-written calligraphy from Allison and wonderfully put together garlands and flowers by Koko Mod Florists made the dining table look spectacular! And the pops of red colour added throughout the home just made it that much more magical. This includes the main course — Lobster!

Most of all, what shone through was Allison's heart. She even brought in blankets for all her guests to help brave the cold weather outside for the ceremony. Allison and Jeff’s’ hearts are so big that you can see why all of their family and friends truly adore them!

One thing that made this night very special was the nighttime ceremony! How unique and refreshing it was to watch these two say their wedding vows in the dark of night. Allison and Jeff even braved the cold a little while longer for some stunning night time portrait shots. I loved how adventurous this couple was! I can honestly say this wedding will stay with me always. 

To Allison and Jeff, I’m so happy for the both of you. You really brought warmth and light to this cold winter day and I’m so thankful you allowed me to be a part of it as your wedding photographer. Cheers, you two!
