The Wedding As Told By Sinead Dubeau Photography

When Rachel and Kevin met, they connected immediately - little did they know, a chance meeting at a party, just days before Rachel moved back to her home country of Ireland, would result in an exchange of vows in front of their nearest and dearest! After dating long distance for some time, Rachel and Kevin moved to Halifax, Nova Scotia to start their life together. 

Rachel and Kevin tied the knot this past Saturday in an intimate celebration, with personalized touches inspired by their home countries of Ireland and the Philippines. During the ceremony, which took place in a quaint country church in East Chezzetcook, they paid homage to their family's cultures with a candle lighting ceremony, traditional prayers and well wishes, and songs sung by Kevin's younger brother Tristan. They also created a delicious cocktail for their reception, incorporating ingredients from both countries, their gift bags for wedding favours were handmade with fabric printed with their national flowers (sampaguita outside, shamrock inside), and even the florals corresponded with their nation's flag colours! All of this was tied together with a Nova Scotian Thanksgiving-style dinner at the reception (hosted by Eliot & Vine in Halifax).
