Back in September, I was fortunate enough to join Matthew and Kyla for their engagement session in what is one of my all time favourite photographic experiences. We took a helicopter to Sambro Island and got some incredible shots, you can see that HERE. We had absolutely beautiful weather for that day, not exactly what was forecast for their wedding day. With everyone calling for heavy rain on Saturday, we found an indoor alternative for photos to keep us all dry.
I started the day with Kyla and her bridesmaids as they finished getting ready. Due to Kyla’s involvement with figure skating, we made sure to take a photo of her with her 2 flower girls each holding one of her skates, definitely a unique and personal touch.
The ceremony was at the Bluenose Ballroom at the Delta, a great room with windows on 3 sides. We had a great view of the rain that wasn’t yet happening in downtown Halifax. After the ceremony, we went to our indoor photo location, and after the hour we were booked in there, we went outside to Purdy’s Wharf for a few shots before heading back inside for the reception. We managed to avoid the rain, mostly because it didn’t really materialize. The reception however did seem to go as planned with some great speeches, great food, and finally, great dancing. Here’s a little glimpse at Matthew and Kyla’s first day together as husband and wife:
