Pete and Mel are two of the coolest, most adventurous and passionate people I’ve ever met. They travel a lot together so it was pretty fitting that their wedding day felt like an adventure exploring Halifax and the Dartmouth waterfront with their friends and family. Saying their vows with the setting sun and Halifax skyline in the background was pretty incredible. Right after the ceremony everyone hopped on the ferry for a sunset singalong while heading back to Halifax for food and drinks at East of Grafton. It was definitely something I’ve never experienced at any wedding before and it was my absolute favourite part of the day (with many close seconds).

How did you meet?

Pete and I met at an “orphan Easter” potluck party, put together by our friend Alaina, who worked with my best friend Heather, and who is married to Pete’s best friend. Despite the fact that neither of us were living in Petawawa, we both found ourselves at this gathering and unable to stop talking to one another. Even when others tried to interrupt the conversation, we kept finding our way back to each other.

How long have you been together?

We met in March 2013.

Who proposed? How did it happen?

Pete proposed over Christmas holidays in Nova Scotia, at one of the harbour look-offs I had taken him to during his first visit, years before. Pete romantically recounts that our first trip to this point was one of the first moments he knew he loved me. So, he brought us back to this point, by surprise I might add, to ask me to spend my life with him. Given my love for stories, he annotated our relationship and the proposal in storybook form, pictures and all.

After struggling to even read this amazing story because I was crying too hard, Pete nearly fell off the cliff as he got down on one knee.

What’s your favourite thing about her?

Pete says his favourite thing about me is the fact that we are such great partners, in so many ways. We are partners in crime, adventure buddies, and life navigators. He says that I taught him how to truly love someone.

What’s your favourite thing about him?

My favourite thing about Pete is that he always has my back. He is my person. On top of always being there for me and encouraging me to be my best self, he is so funny and always manages to make me laugh in the middle of a mouthful of wine.

Describe your relationship in three words:

Partners in Crime

Honest

Passionate

What was your favourite part of your wedding day?

All of it. No joke, it was the best day of our lives. From singing in the sun on the ferry, dancing to an East Coast band until we could not walk, to drinking until 3am surrounded by only our closest friends and family, IT WAS PERFECT.

What are you looking forward to now that the wedding is over?

Life.  Adventures. Our next party.

I met Peter and Jessica working at a grocery store another lifetime ago and I may have even had a little something to do with setting them up. One of the best parts of my job is connecting with old friends and being there to document big moments in their lives. It’s incredibly special to know where a connection between two people started and to see how far it’s come. I’m so proud of these two and it was an absolute honour to document this day for them.

How did you meet?

We met working at superstore! Me (Jessica) as a front end cashier, Pete worked grocery. We basically started talking through text then did supper and a movie with friends Caitlin and Ryan.

How long have you been together?

10 years last October. It took 9 years to get engaged and just short of our 10 year “dateaversary” we got married in September.

Who proposed? How did it happen?

Peter proposed after I sent 95 thousand photos of the engagement ring I wanted. He said he wanted to go get food in eastern passage then we stopped at a look off point and he literally just kneeled down and said will you marry me!

What’s your favourite thing about her?

He says my sense of humour…I am pretty funny.

What’s your favourite thing about him?

Work ethic, I’ve literally never met someone so determined and hard working, when he sets goals and wants something he works until it’s his.

Describe your relationship in three words:

Best friends
Uncomplicated
Food lovers

What was your favourite part of your wedding day?

EVERYTHING !
Still obsessed with everything…the ceremony, the food, the venue, Pete in his suit. But one memory that I’ll forever remember is making everyone and I mean everyone, come dance to “shout” from wedding crashers. It’s my favourite wedding song and it made me so happy to have all my friends and family having fun dancing with us!
Pete says seeing me in my dress for the first time.

What are you looking forward to now that the wedding is over?

Down time from planning the wedding, getting back to our chill normal lives. Looking at wedding photos everyday. Everything about the wedding was perfect but it’s a relief that it’s all over and we can start our lives as the LaChances!
