Amanda & Mike | An against all odds Nova Scotia wedding at Clover Cottage Retreat June 28, 2020
Well, when I chose my “brand words” of authentic, timeless and joy filled photography several years ago to help define both my shooting style and the type of clients I was trying to attract I had no idea how important they would become during what will be forever known as the Covid 10 wedding season. Most of my 2020 season clients have chosen to postpone to 2021 and preserve their big wedding day vision full of guests who have come from away, and where hugs abound. But there are a handful who are opting for whatever version of a small scale wedding can happen this year. Amanda and Mike are, as we speak, moving out west after Amanda’s last exam in medical school 3 sleeps before her wedding day. They decided to have whatever type of ceremony and small scale celebration health restrictions would allow on the day, and low and behold, 2 sleeps before the wedding day the “bubble burst” announcement happened in Nova Scotia and we were allowed to hug our close friends and family and gather in small groups. After staying the blazes home for months everyone involved, including myself, knew it was going to be a special experience. The emotional and logistical challenges the couple had to overcome, their ability fo focus on what mattered most instead of what they had to compromise on, and their commitment to each other led to a truly authentic, timeless and joy filled wedding day. Scroll down and soak in all the happy, it will fill your bucket up. I know it did mine and I thank you for that Amanda and Mike!
