As you can see from the collage above, Jackie, Matt & their wedding party are definitely a wild and crazy bunch and we had such an awesome time with them! One of the most fun weddings I’ve been to, but also lots of sentiment with touching speeches & a beautiful ceremony. Congrats guys, it was a great day! And any wedding with bright pink as the colour scheme always gets big points from me!
Describe the vision/theme you had for your wedding in 5 words or less: Fun, relaxed, full of love
What are you favorite memories of your wedding day?
Bride: When I finally saw Matt at the church, spending time together just the two of us at Spencer Hall before the reception, and celebrating with friends and family!
Groom: Seeing Jackie in her beautiful dress for the first time, having my friends and family together, and sandstorm!
Best wedding related decision: Having the reception at Spencer Hall..we love it there! Also having the McKenna’s sing live at the ceremony..they did a wonderful job!
Favourite detail: The pink shoes and tie were big hits!
Advice for future brides & grooms: Don’t sweat the small stuff because you won’t even notice what’s there on the actual day! All we really cared about was being together and celebrating with our friends and family. Also, spend some time alone together even if it’s just a few minutes to take in everything that’s happening..it goes by so fast!
Would you change anything if you could do it all over again? We loved our wedding! We just wish that we would have videotaped the speeches because they were great!
Best surprise of the day: Having Father Clare do our ceremony!
Favorite HRM picture from the day (and why?): It’s really hard to choose because they are all great! The one where we are coming out of the main part of the church after getting married is great..we look so happy! Also, pretty much any of the ones of Matt with groomsmen and groomswoman..especially the ones where they are all shotgunning beers..are pretty funny!
Anything else you’d like to add: Thank you to Heather and Niki..you guys are amazing and know how to get the job done! We absolutely love our photos and will cherish them forever!

Always a hilarious reception gag… all the men in the room were asked to return any items Jackie had left with them!
