Jamie Randell and Matt Kallio found love online in 2007. At the time, Jamie was living St. John's and Matthew in Wolfville, but after two years of chatting long-distance, they finally met in 2009, relocating to Halifax soon after. "As cliche as it sounds," says Jamie, "I knew from that moment, he was the one I was going to spend the rest of my life with." While Matt found work in Halifax with music—as a pianist, teacher and church music director— employment prospects weren't great for Jamie and after over a year on the hunt, they decided he'd move to Banff for the summer. Both the new job and the distance were trying on the couple, but during weak moments, just when Jamie found himself doubting all of his decisions, Matt popped the question over the phone. "He texted me a picture of an engagement ring and said that he was in this for the long haul, " says Jamie. When it came to their wedding day, naturally, the couple celebrated their love through music. They were married at the Maritime Conservatory of Performing Arts, where each moment was complimented with a song; Matt even turned Jamie's favourite (Journey's "Faithfully") into a classical piece with guest vocals from their friend Andrea. July 5 was full of the sweet notes of family, friends and togetherness. "As people filled the room, the sounds of Duo Tranquillo, harp and flute echoed from the balcony," Jamie recalls. "There was an unbelievable sense of love and acceptance in the room."
