Destination Wedding In PEI

Toronto photographer, Marc Koecher, had the pleasure of photographing this beautiful destination wedding in PEI last summer.

Ali and Mike live in Toronto, they decided to get married at Ali’s family cottage in PEI where she spent her summers, and she and Mike vacation often.

When Ali’s dad got wind of the plan, he immediately went over to their neighbour, Jim, to find out if an invitation to the wedding / lobster cookout, would be enough to borrow his front lawn to pitch the wedding tent. From the photos below, I would have to assume, Jim was happy with the deal.

The neighbour on the other side was, Rodney, of the famed Rodney’s Oyster House here in Toronto. He also did not to disappoint by supplying the bride with fresh oysters while getting ready, and jovial and witty stories about the world of oysters.

Ultimately, Ali and Mike’s goal was to host a lobster dinner for their 25 guests that made the trek to the island to celebrate with them. With a lot of help from family and friends, and Mother Nature, who provided the beautiful Island sunset, their day was exactly what they envisioned.
