TELL US YOUR STORY: “Patrick and I met in October 2016 when we were both living in Toronto, focused on our careers. We met at a rugby game we were separately attending, and we quickly realized we had mutual friends. He was very persistent and tracked me down after the game and asked me out to dinner. We began to spend more time together and became really close, quickly. He told me he loved me after a few pints on St Paddy’s Day and the rest is history. We spent years living in a loft size apartment in downtown Toronto, enjoying city life together. When the pandemic hit, I wanted to move back to my hometown in Nova Scotia and live on the ocean again. We found a beautiful home in the woods, facing the sunset over the ocean. We have been here for over two years and couldn’t be happier.” – J

BIGGEST CHALLENGE: “Envisioning our property as a venue. We also had no rain plan! The weather in June in Nova Scotia isn’t guaranteed, so we were crossing our fingers it would work out! We went through multiple set-up plans to determine which was the best configuration with the day.” – J

BEST MEMORY: “Arriving by boat with my dad and sister. I looked up at our property and saw our families smiling down at us. Pat was more handsome than I could have ever imagined. As my dad helped me off the boat and walked me up our dock towards Pat, it was the most special moment of my life.” – J 

ADVICE FOR OTHER COUPLES: “Once you have a photographer, DJ/band, caterer, and venue the rest falls into place really nicely. The day goes by so so quickly, try to take a quiet moment and look around at everyone celebrating and having fun. Don’t sweat the small stuff, it doesn’t matter. It’s your day, try not to get influenced by what others may be suggesting.” – J&P
