A Parisian-Inspired Wedding in Halifax, Nova Scotia


High school friends turned sweethearts, Christena and Brad decided on their Parisian-themed wedding after Brad’s Paris proposal. On a family trip to France, Brad took Christena for an early morning walk through the Luxumbourg Gardens and popped the question. The couple purchased a a celebratory bottle of champagne in France but vowed to save it for a special occasion, which turned out to be their French-inspired wedding day! During the night, the couple snuck out with their photographer to take some stunning shots with the Canada Day fireworks on the Halifax Waterfront as a backdrop. “It not only produced amazing photos but it also gave us a chance to relax and enjoy a few wonderful minutes alone after a very busy day,” Christena shares.
