There was definitely no shortage of white at this wedding.
Jeremy and Sarah Landry planned to tie the knot last weekend at a winter wedding at St. Joseph’s Lakeside Community Centre in Antigonish, NS. For the most part, the day went off without a hitch. Vows were exchanged, food was eaten, people danced and guests laughed. The snow that was falling that day even made for some fanastic wedding photos, taken by Lisa Delorey Photography:
But soon, it became more apparent that the snow wasn’t going to stop. The CBC reported that about 60 cm of it fell on the wedding day, and eventually, it started covering up people’s cars.
“When I went outside, I realized how much snow had fallen. At that time which was around 9:30, the cars were all covered–just side mirrors and windows were showing and it was up to our knees,” Jeremy said. “At that moment what was going through my head was just concern for the people travelling and hoping I can make sure they reached their destination, and not get stuck and stranded or slide off the road.”
While some guests attempted to leave on their own, the ones without four-wheel drive mostly got stuck further down the street. Which is when Jeremy went full-Canadian.
The groom left his own wedding and braved the snow-covered streets to return home. Once there, he slapped a plow onto the front of his truck, returned to the reception and carved out an escape route. Then he began packing the guests into several vehicles owned by his relatives, and carted them all back to their homes. Jeremy and Sarah even opened up their own house to six people who opted to spend the night, since conditions were pretty treacherous outside.
How’s that for polite?
And if you think the snowstorm somehow ruined the couple’s experience, think again.
“Our wedding day turned out amazing,” Jeremy said. “I asked my wife yesterday if she would change anything and we both agreed not a single thing.”
Looks like it was snow problem for the couple, indeed.
