Michelle and Harvey tied the knot last May.  The ceremony was preformed at the National Art Center. While the guests were enjoying lunch, we took the couple and the bridal party for a walk around the downtown core. The Chateau Laurier, the locks, the canal, and Major Hill’s Park gave us great backdrops as we took beautiful pictures of this gorgeous couple. Of course, it had to be the hottest day of the summer, with the weather reaching 38 degrees, but this couple did not let the heat slow them down. The photos continued at a Stittsville park after the couple changed for their wedding reception. The evening held at Next restaurent, was filled with fun, laughter, heartfelt speeches, awesome food and entertainment. (We were even treated to a solo signing performance by the bride’s father!). In all, it was a perfect day.

Michelle and Harvey, your wedding day was magical! Enjoy your time visiting the world and we will see you when you are back in Canada!  ottawa sikh wedding photographers

Chrystal & Mario Say “I Do” At Lago

Chrystal and Mario were a joy to work with. They are beautiful, kind, generous and so much fun! We learned to get to know them throughout the years at weddings and especially when they were both part of a wedding party we photographed in Jamaica. The day started with the boys at Mario’s parents home in Orleans. Just before leaving, we wanted to photograph all the boy outside in the middle of the street. Mario took so long to come out of the house that the guys had time to walk the streets and find a toilet for him to sit on! This was hilarious! We then made our way to the bride’s home for her bridal portrait session. Crystal was stunning! Wow, What a gorgeous bride!!! The bridesmaids, parents and family helped make the morning session go smoothly.  The wedding ceremony and reception was at the Lago Bar restaurent in Ottawa. The ceremony was performed by Alan Viau from All Seasons Weddings Ceremonies. After the group photo, we took family photos with Dow’s Lake as the backdrop. The formal couple and wedding party photos were done at the Experimental Farm. We finished under light rain, in the middle of the street, under the “Little Italy sign”.  A perfect ending to the photo session as the couple were headed to Italy for their honeymoon! The venue, the food, the atmosphere, the music (especially the first dance song performed by Mario’s Dad) were at the rendez-vous! What a memorable night.!!!!! Here are some photos that highlight the day! Congratulations to Crystal and Mario!!!

Kim & Matt’s NEXT Restaurant Stittsville ON Wedding with Chef Blackie

What a day!   This was like a fairytale wedding .  Everything was perfect.  The day started with the groom’s coverage  and the bride’s portrait bridal session before the wedding. Then, we all made our way to a private park for the bride and groom and wedding party photos. A first look was carefully organized and directed by us, and then, the magic happened, the first look was captured on camera as beautifully as it was felt between Kim & Matt. Kim looked absolutely breathtaking in her Rue De Seine gown from Loversland boutique in Toronto. All the bridal party looked fabulous, the gray and yellow color scheme matched perfectly with the Boho Chic theme of this wedding.  The ceremony and reception was held at the Next restaurent in Stittsville Ontario. Chef Blackie and the staff at the restaurant made sure the guests received top notch service and amazing food. The timeline, decor and details could not have been planned better thanks to the help of Joelle Martin. In all, this was a day that can never be forgotten. To Kim and Matt, we wish you the best in your new lives together as husband and wife. May all your dreams come true !

Erica & Brennan’s Ottawa Courtyard Wedding

 Erica and Brennan planned their Ottawa wedding from their home in Calgary. It was important for them to come back home to be with family and friends for their big day! They are an amazing couple; genuine, down to earth, easy going and gorgeous inside and out. We started the day at  Les Suites Hotel in Ottawa for the bridal and groom’s session. The ceremony was held at the charming St-Patrick’s Catholic church on Steeple Hill  in Nepean.  The family and wedding photos were taken on the church’s property before heading back to downtown for some photos of the couple around Major Hill’s Park and at the Byward Market.The reception was held at the Courtyard Restaurant. We love the unique colour palate the bride and groom chose for their big day. The yellow flowers added just the right amount of punch to each image. Thank you Erica and Brennan for allowing us to create beautiful wedding images for you. We wish you the best in your new lives as husband and wife.

Tania & Elie Ottawa Wedding – Sts. Peter and Paul & Hellenic Reception Center

Tania and Elie are such a lovely couple the wedding planning was so much fun with Tania. Every time she came to the studio we ended up talking about her wedding and everything else about life!!! Tania is a wonderful person, generous (thank you for those Baklavas, they were the best we have ever had) and drop dead gorgeous.

Tania looked stunning in  her  Manuel Mota wedding gown and Elie looked incredibly handsome in a suit from Stephano Menswear.  The ceremony was held at the  Sts Peter & Paul Church on North River Road in Ottawa. The family and wedding party photos were taken at Kingsview Park a few minutes from the church. We made our way to the National Gallery of Canada for more bridal party images and took the couple on a “photo walk”!   Our top photo venues included the courtyard next to the National Gallery of Canada, the Notre Dame Basilica Ottawa church, Major Hills Park and the Fairmont Chateau Laurier. The reception venue was at the Hellenic Reception Centre and looked amazing thanks to WEDECOR. Enjoy the photo highlights of the day! Thank you Tania and Elie for giving us “carte blanche” to creating all these beautiful wedding images.

Krystal & Shawn’s Edwards Ontario Country Wedding

Krystal and Shawn have a beautiful dream property with horses and a riding arena in Edwards Ontario. When they started to plan the wedding, there was no question in their mind their home was going to be “the wedding venue”. We started the day at the bride and groom’s home with Shawn and his family. We then made our way to the parent’s newly renovated farm home 2 minutes from the couple’s property. The farm house provided the perfect  rustic style and blended magically with the theme of the wedding. The ceremony was held outdoors next to the couple’s riding arena. They even built their own wedding arch out of distressed wood. The hanging flowers were in vintage medicine bottles… wow, this couple is so detailed oriented, they bring a whole new meaning to DIY weddings. They even had lavender in paper cones for the guests to throw like confetti for their first walk down the aisle as husband and wife! What a unique idea that gave us  breathtaking photos.  The couple photos, family and wedding party was done in their hay field. The weather was beautiful and their friends and family provided the perfect atmosphere! Love was in the air! The bride looked stunning in her Enzoani designer dress from Baroness Bridal Boutique.  The groom looked equally charming sporting a cowboy hat for the couple’s session. The reception was held inside their riding arena. The decor included vintage typewriters , old rustic wood barrels, hay bales, antique tea cups and antique wagons. A perfect decor for a country chic outdoor wedding! Here is a look at some off the images of their wonderful day! To Krystal and Shawn: Congratulations and we wish you the best!
