Shannon and Joe were married in a quaint backyard ceremony in Hubbards at Shannon’s family home, and if that wasn’t personal enough, they even had a friend preside over the ceremony. We had a bit of rain and mist leading up to the ceremony and we were all concerned that we might be in trouble, but we were fortunate that the rain missed us, and we even had some sunshine. Shannon and Joe had a musician play before, during, and after the ceremony and I thought he sounded just like Ray LaMontagne, even when his speaker turned off during the ceremony when a breaker tripped (which may or may not have had something to do with me stepping on an extension cord).
We had some great photo locations including the property itself and downtown Halifax. They had a fairly large wedding party and they were all a lot of fun and easy going, we didn’t have to worry about anyone not paying attention during photos. We wrapped up photos at the Keith’s Brewery before heading to Niche for the reception. When in came down to speech time, they were all speeches I wouldn’t want to follow, especially Joe’s brother’s emotional speech. Shannon and Joe had a great sized wedding with their closest family and friends and despite it being a Sunday, no-one seemed to be holding back. I can only imagine that productivity was low on Monday morning for most of the guests, but it was all worth it to celebrate Shannon and Joe’s big day. Here are a few shots from their wedding;
