A Blue and White Outdoor Wedding In St. Andrews, New Brunswick


Pauline and Matthew met during their first year at university but it wasn’t until their second year that they finally had their first date. Fast-forward nine years to when Matthew surprised Pauline with an engagement ring. “Matthew managed to fool me by saying that he was going to Toronto for a boys’ weekend, and it worked, but that night there was a candle lit outside our apartment door and there was Matt, dressed up in a suit with flowers, candles, wine – the whole deal,” explains Pauline. “Nine years of dating and he still had the ability to surprise and wow me,” says Pauline. The couple planned a beautiful rustic outdoor wedding with burlap table runners, flower box centerpieces and cones filled with flower petals. “Our guests are still telling us how great of a time they had,” says Pauline. “My cheeks hurt from smiling and laughing so much! There was a moment during the dinner where I thought, ‘this is perfect’.”
