Hitching Post: Zakary Miller and Franny Rutchinski

Both born and raised in Toronto, Zakary Miller and Franny Rutchinski have made their home in Kentville, NS. Franny is a vintage and handmade seller, in the midst of launching a general store in Wolfville, and Zakary is a musician who plays Western and Canadiana swing.

Zakary and Franny were married on June 8, at a friend’s property in Blomidon, which they consider a sacred and special place. The ceremony was officiated by Sarah Anderson.

The bouquet was bursting with peonies, lilacs, and poppies in peachy pink and purple tones. The bouquet, as well as all the flowers at the wedding, were done by Two Birds One Stone Farm in Hall’s Harbour. The bride’s wedding dress was her mother’s (who passed away when Franny was 19), which was modified with a sheer long sleeved vintage blouse, with ivory flowers on it, but included the original skirt, which had a champagne silk slip and a sheer champagne overlay. The bottom of the skirt, which hits just above the ankle, was also covered in ivory embroidered flowers. The Rolled Oat Cafe as well as Jenny and Meagan Osborne catered the meal, which was served on vintage dishware collected by the bride.

The newlyweds plan to honeymoon in Newfoundland for a two week road trip, where they’ll camp at Gros Morne, stay in a cottage in Twillingate and a tiny house in Port Rexton, and enjoy St. John’s (where supper at The Mallard Cottage is a must!), and yes, Zakary has even booked a few gigs along the way!
