When Cataline reached out about his wedding, he didn’t have a venue locked down. However, he knew who he would be marrying, he knew the date and he knew it would be taking place in Liverpool, Nova Scotia. “I realize that I can get someone local… or I can perhaps have Mike Last work his magic… which I would be thrilled with!” Hard to argue with that level of confidence and the opportunity to travel to the Eastern shores of Canada for the first time.

A few months and a short flight later, we had reached Halifax and drove the Lighthouse Route along the coast to Liverpool. Fortunately these lighthouses and small fishing marinas continued right down the coast to the Mersey River, the backdrop for this stunning backyard wedding. With some time between the ceremony and formals, we made it to Western Head Lighthouse and Moose Harbour to create a gorgeous set of photos for the happy new couple. The rest of the night we enjoyed a BBQ feast under the big tent and dancing beneath the starts by the campfire.
