It seems like ages ago that we were studying psychology at Saint Mary’s University in Halifax. That’s when we first met Miriam. She was also finishing her degree and, like nearly everyone around, was scratching her head about the next ‘life move’. The fork in her road was between psychology and the military. Though in the images below you’ll see a very elegant, petite and gentle looking Miriam, I’ve seen her in her camouflage and stomping boots. You get the sense that her personality is too dynamic for just one career. Brad, who we met later, shares this with Miriam. He obviously has a head for business and a huge heart. His sincerity is as wide as his smile and his love for Miriam is just as obvious. He’s rapidly learning Arabic, embracing Miriam’s Lebanese culture, and looks at her very tenderly.
The wedding was a fantastic blend of Nova Scotian and Lebanese culture. During the reception entrance, for example, the groomsmen dramatically trotted under the Nova Scotia banner, while the bridesmaids danced in waving the flag of Lebanon. The music for the remainder of the evening flip-flopped between Canadian and Lebanese.
We are thankful to know these two amazing people and were very honoured to be hired on to photograph their day.
