Stephanie and Gerard have such a unique and beautiful love story. The two first met over coffee to discuss U.S. taxes. Stephanie was running late that day. Gerard was waiting for her at the base of an escalator when he was struck by the beauty of a blond woman who was heading his way. He hoped she was his coffee date, and it turns out she was!
Gerard and Stephanie soon realized just how much they had in common. Both were Canadians who were living in New Orleans and working for the same company. It wasn’t long before the sparks began to fly between the two and their romance became a hot topic at their office.
Since they first got together, Gerard and Stephanie have travelled around the globe and they now live in Malaysia. Despite their love of travel, they decided to return to Stephanie’s Nova Scotia roots for their wedding.
The couple were married on a warm and sunny day in July. The ceremony took place at a farm in Summerville overlooking the banks of the beautiful Avon River. Guests from around the globe travelled to this destination wedding, sitting on bales of hay to watch the pair tie the knot. The wedding also included glamping for the guests, offering cute little tents for them to stay in.
We were constantly struck by the love that Stephanie and Gerard share as we filmed their wedding day. While they posed together for photos and video, they kept sharing sweet kisses, taking moments to look into each other’s eyes, but they also were quick to share a laugh. Everything about this couple is magical, including one of the surprises they planned for their wedding day.
After the speeches were finished, the pair took to the dance floor to surprise their guests with a choreographed dance. Gerard and Stephanie spun around the pole barn to a cover of Ed Sheeran’s dreamy “Thinking out Loud.” Their dance was perfect. If you’d like to see it, definitely check out the trailer from Stephanie and Gerard’s wedding, which is featured below.
Gerard and Stephanie are an amazing couple and we are so glad we were able to capture their special day.
