Sometimes a big festival wedding and celebration with you being the center of attention for three hundred people isn’t everyones cup of tea. Jon and Rhonda had never been to Newfoundland together, but thought it would be the most perfect location for them to escape and take the plunge. They had decided with the help of their close friends, they were going to elope on this beautiful rock of ours. I offered up a few locations for a ceremony location, and the moment they saw Fort Amherst they thought ‘Why not get married in old fort ruins on the side of a cliff?’ and it was done.
A few weeks before the wedding, Jon’s mother called me to try and hook up something unique and lovely for the couple on their wedding day. She wanted Newfoundland and she wanted over the top – so we settled on a surprise Newfoundland dog visit! Danny surprised them on their walk down from Fort Amherst, with a little note from Mom.
The last week in May an email landed in my inbox, Sheila was eloping on the 9th of June with her fiance Chris – and wanted to know if I was in.
Nothing gets me more excited than hiking up the east coast trail to shoot an epic elope in the morning. Be spontaneous, think outside the box – be you. This is your day, don’t forget it.
The fog was heavy, the sky threatened to pour but Brad and Nicole stood oblivious, in the bunkers on Cape Spear, staring into each others eyes with smiles from ear to ear saying I do. The location wasn’t the only beautiful thing about this wedding, it was only the beginning.
There’s no way to tell for sure, but we’ll let our hearts go with what they want… ♥ Even when those we love pass, they never leave your side.
A big thank you to The Franklin Hotel and the Last Drop for letting us take over for a little bit. 🙂
They kinda eloped on Cape Spear 4 hours ago…
