wedding date - july 14th, 2017
On her first day of university at UPEI, Hilary arrived late to discover class was full and there was only one seat left in the room. She hurried in and sat down right beside Mike, not knowing that one day this stranger would become her husband! The weeks and months went by and Hilary & Mike became good friends through class, but later parted ways when they both switched schools. Almost two years later they ran into each other in Halifax and spent the rest of the night chatting and catching up. Little did they know, their conversation that evening would never end!
Years later Hilary & Mike had travelled to see their favorite hockey teams play in Montreal. A few hours after arriving they hiked up to enjoy the views of the city from Mount Royal. Mike handed his phone to a stranger to take a photo of them and surprised Hilary by bringing out an engagement ring!
Having photographed the wedding of Hilary's sister Bethany and Brother in law Brad, it was special to be invited back into their family again and see it combined with Mike's side as well. Mike & Hilary's wedding day was a hot blue sky day in mid July. They were married close to Hilary's home in Bedeque and celebrated at The Shipyard later that evening. They wanted their wedding day to feel romantic, dreamy, & modern and it did just that. We photographed the majority of formals at McCallum's Point, a special place to the Waugh family where Hilary spent a lot of time swimming and playing as a kid. Standing on the cliffs laughing and enjoying ourselves with the ocean all around us was the best kind of PEI Summer day! To everyone involved in this wedding day, thank you so much for keeping the good vibes going all day long!
Congratulations Hilary & Mike!

"Stay organized throughout the planning process. Understand that there will be a light at the end of the tunnel and you will eventually miss planning for your "best day ever". So enjoy it and don't stress!"
