Sometimes, as a special day approaches, you keep your eye on the weather and just know that you’re in trouble. Well that was Kayla and Matt’s wedding day lead up in a nutshell. For the bulk of my drive from Nova Scotia to PEI, the rain held off with just a bit of drizzle, but that was going to change.
I met up with Matt and the boys for some photos at Matt’s parents house. We took some photos in and around the house and just as we were wrapping up, the rain began. By the time I had made my way to Kayla and the girls, it was pouring and there was no way we were going to be doing any of the bridesmaids photos outside. We made things work inside and before we knew it we were off to the Shipyard in Summerside for the ceremony.
The ceremony was held on the deck, and yes, it was covered. It was supposed to be held outside, but inside worked just as well. After the ceremony the wedding party hopped on a bus and we made our way out for photos. We made a run at the Marine Rail Park in Borden, but when we got there we found it too windy to be able to take photos despite the rain holding off. So back toward Summerside we went. Our indoor photo location was Kool Breeze Farms as their greenhouses were among the few places large enough to take photos of the entire wedding party during inclement weather.
It was suggested that we give the golf course a go as there was a deck with an overhang that was supposed to be nice. So when we got there and found the deck under construction we had to change our plans a bit. We got everyone a little bit wet, but managed to pull off some nice photos.
The reception was a lot of fun and topped off with a full dance floor. Despite of some crappy weather, Kayla and Matt had an amazing wedding day and a great start to their marriage. Here are some photos of their day.
