    So I got back from a fun mini-holiday to Halifax, on the East coast, on Sunday. FI and I went to a friend's DW out there! It was a great excuse to go do some sightseeing and have some time on our own. :)

    We flew Porter airlines from Ottawa, which was fab - free food and alcohol (!) - as it's a relatively new charter airline.
    We arrived on Thursday and picked up our rental car (which was enormous) and drove to Lunenberg. I've always wanted to go there. It was so romantic...

    Cute little horses - horse rides around town with people wearing top hats... LOL!

      It would have been fun to go on one of these shark fishing tours...

        The bride walked alone:

        The worst thing was that we could not hear the ceremony at all! I've never been so frustrated.... I'm not sure if it was because it was outside and there was background noise or if they were speaking really quietly, but it was so frustrating

        She looked beautiful though. :)

        What a pretty place to have a wedding at. I went there when i was a little girl, don't remember much though unfortunately. That photo of you and Kev is so sweet!

          The MOH's little son. Isn't he adorable? :)

          Getting emotional after the ceremony. She had really pretty white/green orchids in her hair:

          The reception was at the Halifax Club - a very old club that was really beautiful. Linens were gorgeous... not sure if you can tell from this pic.

          It was a very no-frills wedding. Very suited to the couple.
          FI and I had a good time on the dance floor, trying to dance salsa and meringue to regular songs. :)

          Me and the bride. I look huge compared to her. She's so tiny! Must-get-reduction! (and lose pounds...)

            Thanks, Raeka :) He was so cute this trip. Well, he always is

            It was gorgeous. But the noise (lack of noise) factor really threw me off.
            Now I'm wondering if our wedding on the beach will have microphones.
            I think it must be worse not to be able to hear a ceremony than to hear it through a microphone...

              Nova Scotia has a lot of beautiful locations for weddings and honeymoons, for anyone interested!
