wedding date - june 8, 2018.
Jess and Alex travelled to PEI from the United States looking for a peaceful and inclusive place to celebrate their marriage. They felt welcomed right away by Prince Edward Island and their hosts Melody & Val at The Steeple Cottage in Point Prim - a unique venue with a dramatic and beautiful beach on the rocky shore of Point Prim.
I showed up that cool and rainy day and suggested the pair hang out and enjoy a little time together before the ceremony. Alex played guitar and we enjoyed the warm cottage before heading out to meet the marriage commissioner Melody & her partner Val. We took our chances whether it would start to rain again and traveled down the steps to the red rock beach where they said their vows. Although the rain did come on strong during their ceremony, everyone was still laughing and enjoying the moment. After a retreat back to the cottage to dry off and warm up, we travelled to the nearby Point Prim Lighthouse for more photos. Just before we said our goodbyes we stopped at one last field of dandelions that were white and turning to seed. The sun broke through the clouds at the perfect time, glistening off the flowers and creating one of the most amazing pink sky sunsets that I’ve ever captured. A perfect ending to a lovely evening.
Congratulations Alex & Jess - it was a true pleasure meeting and working with you!
