On a warm, blue-skied day in the Halifax Harbour two people met to exchange vows. Aboard the Tall Ship Silva, the stood face to face, ready to reveal the words they had written to explain why they chose the one in front of them.
They were the same words.
"When you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible."
Although Billy Crystal made those words famous, it felt like the phrase was written for Steve and Katie. I've never seen two people so excited to see one another, completely giddy to get the 'I do's" finished and begin their lives as husband and wife. After the ceremony, guests were treated to a harbour cruise around George's Island before docking back on the wharf.
The bridal party took leave and found their way to Gahan House, where they bumped into a few guests. A family affair at The Lower Deck, followed by a reception at The Halifax Casino made for a day that was half relaxed, East Coast hospitality and half raucous celebration. The kids owned the dance floor, the speeches were earnest, and Steve and Katie have started their life together - as soon as possible:)
