Grace & Walied – Sts. Peter and Paul Melkite Catholic Church Wedding

What a wedding! Wow. Grace looked amazing and so did her handsome husband Walied.  The ceremony was at the Sts. Peter and Paul Melkite Catholic Church and the reception was held at the Hampton Inn. The family photos were done at the Kingsview park close to the church and the bride and groom’s photos were taken  around Ottawa at the Chateau Laurier. It was a dream wedding and one to remember. Congratulation to the wonderful couple. We are honoured that you chose us to be your wedding photographers.

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. Your beauty really shines throughout the lens and we wish you the best in your new lives as husband and wife!

MARIE & TONY TIE THE KNOT – STS. PETER & PAUL & ST. ELIAS IN OTTAWA ONTARIO

Marie and Tony’s wedding day was perfect. Everything was planned meticulously from the fashion choices to all the little details. We started the day at Tony’s house. He was dressed in Hugo Boss and looked like a million bucks. After the groom’s photo session with his family and groomsmen, we went to Marie’s parent’s home for her bridal session. She looked AMAZING!!! Her hair stylist from Fadi’s Hair Salon did an outstanding job and she looked stunning in her dress from Amandalinas Sposa Boutique. Her bridesmaids wore pale pink dresses from  Alyce Paris. The wedding ceremony was at Sts. Peter & Paul Catholic Church in Ottawa on September 6.  The family and wedding party photos were photographed in a park on River Road followed by the couple photos downtown Ottawa. Marie and Tony are great models and we all enjoyed the photo session. We had fun talking, laughing and stopping for poses at Major Hill’s park, the Market, Chateau Laurier and the Courtyard.

 The reception was held at the  St. Elias Centre in Ottawa. Guests enjoyed great food from the St.Elias center, live performances from  The Ottawa Zaffeh Group and Dj Tonee and heartfelt speeches from friends and families.  The cake was from  Milo’s Pastry and a big thank you goes out to their wedding planner from Moonlight Events for coordinating the wedding day!

To Marie and Tony: You are both wonderful, beautiful and kind and we wish you the best in your new adventures as husband and wife!!

STEPHANIE + JAD’S JULY 2014 WEDDING – ST-ELIAS CATHEDRAL, OTTAWA

Welcome to all brides that need inspiration and ideas for their wedding day. Stephanie and Jad’s wedding was unforgettable! From the stationary to the individually hand wrapped sweets, from the custom made dress from Cyprus to the Calvin Klein’s Tuxedo’s, from the Badgley Mischka shoes to the decoration and flowers….everything right down to the littlest details was top shelf!  Stephanie and Jad are amazing together. Their chemistry will light up a room. Not only are they gorgeous, smart and have great personalities…they are very generous and kind to everyone in their entourage.

The wedding day started at both parents’s homes in the morning. We photographed Jad and his family first then went to the bride’s home. Stephanie got ready  with her brides maids while we took care of photographing everything around them. The house was full of families and friends and the entertainment was by the Ottawa Zaffeh  group. We then made our way to the St. Elias Antiochian Orthodox Cathedral to witness them say the big “I DO”. Everything after this moment was photo heaven:) We went downtown Ottawa for the bridal party and couple’s photos and had so much fun creating artistic photographs for Stephanie and Jad. They are so photogenic, the camera loves them…and Stephanie knows how to stare into that  lens helping us capture her true beauty.

  We returned to the St-Elias Banquet Center in Ottawa for the cocktails and diner followed by a night filled with dancing, love and laughter . We hope you enjoy our wedding day highlight. Congratulations again to the couple!
