Melissa and Ben's Outdoor Celebration in Shediac

While I typically relish in the warmth of summer, the heat and humidity of the August long weekend was overbearing. It did however, make for an incredible atmosphere and stunning light throughout the day. I had never been to Shellac before but Melissa knew it inside and out - we started at Webster House, a gorgeous estate with all the amenities for an outdoor ceremony and perfect prep shots. From there, we explored some of the most famous New Brunswick tourist destinations, including the giant lobster and Shediac Waterfront. Captain Dan’s was the backdrop for the rest of the night, poised perfectly alongside the marina where we could get a few more couple photos before the night got funky.

Melissa and Ben were absolutely magical together - as you’ll see in the images below. Their wedding was a long time coming, as they have been together for some time as a young family with their nearly 2 year old son Harvey. I think my favourite moment (aside from the utensil-less cake demolishing) was the brief release of stress and emotion immediately after the ceremony. Their embrace and Melissa’s expression had me holding the camera in front of my face for a few extra seconds to recover…..

I’ll shut up now, but please, enjoy the story below!
