Justine + Don // Oceanstone Rain Wedding

Photography by Jenn Nauss

Justine + Don travelled from Calgary to Nova Scotia to get married at Oceanstone Resort. It’s one of our favourite venues and the perfect location for an east coast celebration next to the water. When it started pouring the morning of the wedding (with no signs of things letting up), I wondered if everything would be moved inside. We love it when couples aren’t phased by the unexpected and when they fully embrace their day, no matter what happens … much like Justine + Don who weren’t about to let the Maritime weather alter the plan! So the bridal party changed from heels to rubber boots, everyone was given ponchos and umbrellas and down the aisle they went. Aside from the weather, one of my favourite moments was when Justine’s grandmother surprised Don by walking down the aisle as the flower girl (complete with a flower petal basket and tiara!) From their pre-wedding lobster boil, to sideways rain, a lot of cake face smashing and an incredibly fun dance party, it was truly an unforgettably beautiful, rainy wedding day at Oceanstone!
