Beautiful Venue

We had a lot of family and friends travelling from out of province, and wanted to give them a destination experience showcasing the best Nova Scotia had to offer, and Fox Harb’r was exactly that. The whole grounds is meticulously kept and absolutely beautiful, and our friends and families enjoyed all the available activities leading up to our wedding. Sometimes hard to get a hold of during the off season, the staff was very helpful and attentive once we were on site, and made our whole day go so smoothly.

Beautiful escape from the city!

Amazing place to get away from the city and enjoy everything NS has to offer. Beautiful modern accommodations, and the food was delicious (thank you chef)! Very professional and responsive customer service (thanks Charlene and Dawn!), the only hiccup we had was with the florist and the coordinators were quick to sort everything out! They were absolutely fantastic to work with. :)

Here in Nova Scotia, we are known for our love of a good party, with plenty of food, drink, music, dancing and "sociable" conversation. I've actually been part of bringing that warm Maritimes hospitality to Fox Harb'r and facilitating major resort events since before this oceanside landmark was even fully built.

One thing I've learned about weddings while helping make a hundred of them happen is that information, organization and planning things down to the smallest detail really help beforehand. Things may change. But knowing approximate numbers, like guest count and budget priorities, allows wedding vendors to tailor your event to you, right from the start.

Then, on the big day, it's time to let go and relax. Leave things to experts like me and the Fox Harb'r team. Enjoy the magic, and all those unexpected moments that make the best memories.

One pro tip would be to invest in a day-of wedding coordinator. Having a dedicated pro on board allows you both to truly enjoy every moment of the day and all your guests, without you, your wedding party or family being distracted by last-minute questions and tasks.

In the meantime, enjoy the wedding planning process. And if East Coast, low-key luxury and a ceremony by the sea speak to you, be sure to get in touch. I'd love to share some Fox Harb'r wedding magic with you.
