Christie and John planned an intimate wedding on the beach at her parent’s cottage where she grew up. It made for such a personal setting to exchange their vows and they put so much thought into the decor as no detail was overlooked with all their hand-made touches. Unfortunately, about an hour before the ceremony, the skies turned dark and a severe thunderstorm started. With the help of so many friends and family, everything was rushed away and they decided to have their ceremony at the local church. It was still as sentimental and beautiful as being on the beach and afterwards guests went to the Kincardine Beach Pavilion to enjoy some cocktails. The bridal party headed to the beach for some photos in-between the rain – there were even breaks of sunshine! These two have some of the most wonderful friends and family, they were supportive throughout the entire day and everyone had smiles on their faces enjoying the moment.
Christie’s parents were celebrating their 41st wedding anniversary on the same date. When they first got engaged, she asked her them if her and John could share their date with them. During her father’s speech he expressed how kind and considerate Christie is and how much she values sentimental moments. The reception continued with heartfelt speeches and laughs and the dance floor was full the entire night. No one was phased by the rain, hail and intense winds happening outside, they were just excited to be celebrating these two amazing people and their marriage. Christie and John, if the superstitions are true that rain on a wedding day brings good luck, then you two officially have a lifetime of it. Congratulations.
