KATIE & JON’S WEDDING -NOTRE DAME CATHEDRAL BASILICA & SALA SAN MARCO

        At Studio G.R. Martin, we love weddings!  We love to capture and record the events of the wedding day as they happen, but, we also love to help create wonderful moments. Katie and Jon are so great together. Jon is handsome and charming, has an awesome personality and a great smile. Katie is beautiful, sweet, kind and so generous. The day was well planned. We covered the groom at his parents house and the bride at her friends house in the morning. Then, tried to make our way on time to the Notre Dame Basilica church during race weekend. The road closed a few minutes before we got there, so, i jumped out of the car and tried to get police cars to escort us to the church on time. The two first cops were so nice and sympathetic, told me to wait 5 minutes for a vehicule to escort us and the limo………then, the big cop in charge arrived to say: NO,NO,NO….I tried, I begged, asked him if he was a romantic and that the bride would have a great story to tell her kids one day about the nice cop who got her to the church on time…….Well, he obviously was NO romantic, cause he told me to get back in the car and get in the traffic jam line like everyone else…:(  So, Katie got there late, but the priest was so nice about it and said not to worry cause he is always stuck in traffic too…LOL. The rest of the day went by like a charm and the reception at Sala San Marco was great. Katie and Jon are surrounded by great friends and a wonderful family. The food was excellent, from the sushi to the oysters, to the antipasto to the fancy hors d’oeuvre…And to top it off,  the 24 course meal :). I highly recommend this venue.

In conclusion, weddings are full of emotions and it’s our job to capture those moments on camera. During the wedding party photos, the sky started to change and dark clouds started rolling in. We took the couple in a courtyard full  of  crab apple trees in full bloom. The wind was blowing pink petals…it was magical. Moments like these are what we thrive for as wedding photographers. Here is a look at Katie and Jon’s wedding day!

Annyx & Martin – Ottawa Wedding – Notre-Dame Cathedral & Le Nordik Spa in Chelsea

What a wedding! Beautiful fall colors make the perfect backdrop for wedding photography in the nation’s capital. We started the wedding at the couple’s house in Orleans. Beautiful light due to large windows made the lighting perfect for the portrait session. They were both in the same house…but, never saw each other. It was fun to see everyone making sure they would not cross paths- they could only hear their voices…What a fun way to build up the anticipation of the groom seeing the bride for the first time down the aisle…and the aisle at the Notre-Dame Cathedral on sussex in Ottawa is one of the most beautiful ones in town. After the ceremony, we stayed around the church to photograph the families and the couple. We then took a walk downtown and kept on photographing this wonderful and fun couple. It’s so nice when the couple are exited about their photo session because we can do anything….Annyx was the best and her dancing background made her posing skills shine- she was really good…ok, so were you Martin … We made our way to the Nordik Spa in Chelsea for the reception and took advantage of the fall colors. The mature trees made this country spa setting breathtaking… What a perfect day!  Here are some highlights of this fairy tale wedding day!
