Melanie & Jackson • Wedding in New Glasgow

West meets East at this picturesque wedding in New Glasgow

As some of you might know, our (grown up) baby girl, Melanie, married her soulmate, Jackson, last weekend. It was a wonderful week of wedding preparations and getting to know our new family for this special wedding in New Glasgow.

Melanie moved out to Alberta in October 2015 to pursue her nursing career. She was fortunate to meet members of the Leussink family and was then introduced to Jackson. They knew it was meant to be from the beginning. At the reception, Melanie admitted:

“I had my wedding party picked out after two months of dating!”

Although Mother Nature didn’t quite cooperate with our plans of an outdoor wedding, that didn’t dampen any spirits.

“Looks like it’s going to be a cloudy day today, I think God should have a better view at the church, so we will see you all there at 2pm!”

The wedding ceremony took place at New Glasgow Christian Church, our family church we grew up with. It was a beautiful service with Barry Clark and Tim Edwards giving their words of love and encouragement. Jason and Katie shared an emotional song. And a new tradition of joining families with the Albertan and Islander dirt.

And of course, the Mustang burn out and send off of Mr. & Mrs. Leussink!

The wedding party headed over to Cymbria Lions Club in South Rustico for some pictures before the reception started at 6pm. The rain held off, so we were able to capture our pictures outside!

Cymbria volunteers were amazing and the roast beef and turkey dinners were great! As dessert came out, the touching speeches began from parents of the bride and groom, best man, maid of honour and brother of the bride. The reception would not have been as fun as it was without the great emcee skills of Martin Dutton!

For those of you that know Janet, you know that she is very talented in writing poems for special events. She did not disappoint for her baby girl’s wedding day. Read her poem below for their love story. 🙂

A few years ago Emily & Jason visited Prince Edward Island and knew right away that this is where they wanted to be married. They began to plan and found Sandpiper Studios as their PEI intimate wedding photographer.

We succeeded to capture some great images on a gorgeous sunny day, that at times was very windy.

They know how to travel in style! The Bride, Groom and family travelled between locations in a 16 passenger Prestige Limousine. From a gorgeous cottage, to the famous Swimming Rock in Cavendish and finally New London’s The Table.

The Wedding was held in the beautiful garden of The Table, followed by a delicious meal prepared by their talented chefs. What a unique experience and perfect for small weddings! What used to be a United Church, has now been repurposed into an Award Winning Culinary Studio.
