Our feature today is not your usual beach wedding. We’re so used to white or yellow sand beaches that whenever we have an album that has dark black sand like this, it’s a definite standout. Another unusual detail is that our couple’s wedding venue can only be accessed by water transportation. Destination weddings are very common with having the beach setup, but the common beaches used for events like these are easily accessed by airplanes, so having a venue as intimate and private as this one in Newfoundland, Canada is noteworthy. All in all, it was a beautiful wedding set in an equally magnificent island. Congratulations Heather & Adrian.
Heather and Adrian got married at Heather’s grandparents’ cabin – on a private island in Newfoundland, Canada. This island is only accessible by boat, but they had a full wedding shindig with 90 guests! Heather and Adrian planned a super day with lots of neat, gorgeous details using driftwood and natural elements, and with the help of their family built everything by hand. Adrian built the driftwood arch they got married under, and Heather’s mom and family built the benches and other details, and friends helped paint the signs, Heather’s friend made the cakes and together everyone helped to plan the wedding from away, with only a few days to actually make everything happen before the big day.
To top it all off, the following morning, Heather ‘took the plunge’ and jumped off the wharf in her wedding dress before heading back home.
