ALEX AND PAT’S WESTIN | 18 RESTAURANT’S WEDDING

It all started at the House of Barons, where the groom and his groomsmen got a clean shave. Since high school, the groom has worked at the Westin hotel. It was a perfect fit that both, the bride and groom got ready there. Alex found her dress at Kleinfeld in Toronto. She looked absolutely stunning! The couple’s first look  was photographed at the locks close to the National Art Centre. We were blessed to have an energetic, fun and beautiful couple,  a most amazing wedding party and great positive energy to make the photo session fun! The ceremony was held at the Eighteen restaurant on York Street in Ottawa and the intimate ceremony was performed by a friend. A cocktail style reception following the ceremony was held at the same venue and the bride and groom got to enjoy every minute of it with their guests. First looks are becoming more and more popular. That recipe makes the bride and groom totally stress free to enjoy every minute of the cocktail and reception! To Alex and Pat! Congratulations! Your wedding was a blast!

ISABELLE & SCOTT’S BEAUTIFUL CUMBERLAND HERITAGE VILLAGE MUSEUM WEDDING

 Elegance, beauty and class in an organic country setting… This sums up Isabelle and Scott’s wedding pretty well. The museum is located on a 100-acre site in the Village of Cumberland and is home to a small number of livestock in the summer, a working sawmill, forge, carpentry and pump factory, and several other buildings of local historical significance as the schoolhouse, the church and the train station. This museum is an amazing venue for an outdoor wedding, it is only 25 minutes from downtown Ottawa and the scenery and photo opportunity are endless!  We started the day with the groom’s coverage at their friend’s home followed by Isabelle’s bridal session at her parents home in Orleans. The ceremony and the reception was held on site at the Cumberland Museum. The ceremony’s location was carefully selected and designed by Stacey Price and Erin Charmichael from The Design Co. in an alley between two rows of majestic trees. It was breathtaking. When the flower petals where set, and Isabelle walked down the aisle, it was a beautiful moment. To view more photos showcasing the details, style and colour scheme from this wedding, visit The Design co‘s website. The weather was perfect, the guests mingled and visited the site while we took the wedding party and family photos. After the cocktail, we all made our way to the outdoor reception area and enjoyed nachos, tacos, pizza’s and salads from a variety of gourmet food trucks chosen by the bride and groom. Everyone partied on till the early morning!!!

To Isabelle and Scott: Thank you for allowing us to record the events of you’re wedding day. It is a privilege and a great honour to be a part of our couple’s most special day! You make a beautiful couple. We wish you happiness forever and love always!

Congratulations to the proud parents of two beautiful children and one more on the way! For an extra glimpse into their life, check out Isabelle’s lifestyle blog Demoiselle Isabelle!
