A mother-daughter duo have an all out adventure around Peggy’s Cove

Helen and Lucy Early had an amazing adventure down at Peggy’s Cove, and they’re pulling out all the stops (in the travel sense)! It might not be tourist season yet, but these two are having their own staycation. Down by the Cove, it’s beautiful no mater the weather. (Having a cozy fire at night doesn’t hurt either!) Spoiler alert: they were staying in the Pines Cottages

Read all their travel tips, and see what the area has to offer for Nova Scotia residents.

There’s more than meets the Eye

When you live in an area, you often forget to appreciate your surroundings. You don’t think about spectacular natural beauty around you, or the rustic charms.

We’d like to challenge you to explore your home again. Explore Nova Scotia like you’ve never explored it before.

She’s glam, and he’s rustic. Oceanstone can do that.

Leroy & Kayla ‘s Story

When they first met, Leroy lived in Alberta, and Kayla was in Halifax. 5300 kilometers between them. Kayla eventually moved out to be with him, and they got engaged.

When the Fort McMurray wild fire broke out, Leroy helped battle the blaze while Kayla was evacuated. It was a harrowing time, and they separated again. That’s when they decided to move back to the Maritimes, & get married here. They’re close to Kayla’s family, and don’t have to worry about being apart.

Being here has allowed them to feel closer than ever as they build their future home together.

The Wedding

So begins their journey around Nova Scotia to find the perfect wedding venue! They partnered with Where to “I Do” and saw three gorgeous locations. They wanted a good blend of comfort and rustic for their special day. Leroy wanted to throw axes, and Kayla wanted their guests to be pampered, so the venue needed to be elegant and open. Of course, it also had to be by the sea.

And don’t forget that this is Nova Scotia, so you always need to have a rain plan!

In the end, they chose us at Oceanstone Seaside Resort, and the weather was gorgeous. We helped bring the absolute blend of their visions to life. It’s a destination wedding, but local! In the end, they get their private getaway with their friends and family surrounding them, and Leroy gets his axe throwing. Because that’s what we do here at Oceanstone.
