Andrea and Nathan were married in a super laid-back and relaxed ceremony at the Rocket Room on Water Street. So many of their friends and family had traveled to join them for their big day that they wanted the day to be fun for everyone and went as far as to organize a scavenger hunt around downtown for them while we went off to do photos. Here are my favorite images of their big day…I love when couples don’t just get caught up in going to the popular spots for photos. Nathan visits Fixed every day for his coffee break. It’s where we did our meetings too because it’s their favourite. So when we were going over the timeline for the day and we actually scheduled a coffee break, and it was for here, it was perfect! Totally them. And these are some of my the cutest images from the day!With a little caffeine boost, we headed off to Quidi Vidi. We had planned to go there but it was raining and foggy and incredibly drab. But we drove alone chatting about how we would make the most of whatever it was. Everyone quickly changed into more practical foot wear and we went on a little hike. I am SO glad we went. These are some of my favourite images from that area. It’s gorgeous there, but the fog just makes it so authentically Newfoundland. The way it hung around the tops of the hills was beautiful.
We were all pretty wet and chilly and decided to take a scoot by Andrea and Nathan’s place for a few minutes. I had been looking at a building near their house since I have lived in St. John’s and we were so close we stopped for a moment! It was fun to finally get to use it!
With our photo time drawing a close, Nathan (whose job sounds incredibly technical and involves boats) mentioned that a research vessel he dreams of working on was docked in St. John’s. We decided to take a pass through downtown to have a look. There it was! His dream ship. It was inside the very tall black metal fence, but we could see it there. On a whim, we hopped out of the car and Nathan some how managed to talk his way inside in the pouring rain. It took some more talking and a sympathetic second guard but 3 of us managed to get escorted inside so he could have some photos). Of course, I know nothing about the Neil Armstrong – but I know it was important to Nathan and the guests at the wedding were excited he got to get so close! It was totally worth it!And then it was party time! The meal was literally the best I have ever had at any wedding ever. Evvvver. If you haven’t been to Rocket Bakery, get yourself there and order the fishcakes. Order more that you think you will eat. You will eat them and be glad you did. Andrea and Nathan, thank-you for listening to Peter and Susan and choosing me for your wedding. There wasn’t a single minute of your day I didn’t love! I wish you all the best forever!
