Julie-Ann and Jacob were in a long distance relationship with Julie-Ann living in Nova Scotia, and Jacob way down in Florida. With that in mind, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that I hadn’t met Jacob until the wedding, at the church no less, and what a church it was. They were married at the little chapel on the campus of Acadia University in Wolfville.
I had never been to the church before, but it certainly impressed with it’s wonderful light. Julie-Ann arrived to said church in a great vintage car, a 57′ Chevy, painted in classic turquoise. As Jacob later told me, it turned out to be one of his favourite old cars too, so he was thrilled when Julie-Ann told him she had it for the day. After the ceremony we made the most of the car and took a number of photos with it, and then inside it as we made our way down the strip on a busy Sunday to a number of cheers as people saw the happy bride and groom.
We drove around for a bit taking photos before returning to the church for the reception which was held in the basement. The couple had a buffet dinner, and handed out cake and cookies to their guests afterwards. The dinner was highlighted by a number of musical performances including some from Jacob himself. He busted out the guitar and sang to Julie-Ann. They also had a couple of songs sung, a friend play guitar, another play the saxophone, and another yet play the piano. It was the most musically diverse wedding I’ve ever been to.
With Julie-Ann and Jacob deciding to start their lives together south of the border, it will certainly be difficult for Julie-Ann’s friends and family, but what better way to have a send off than a wedding? I hope for the best for both Julie-Ann and Jacob in their future together, hopefully they make it back to Nova Scotia for visits often.
