Amélie & Luc Say I Do At NeXT Restaurant – OTTAWA WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

Amélie and Luc’s wedding day was absolutely picture perfect. Their home was beautifully decorated and offered a perfect backdrop for bridal photos.  Amelie looked absolutely stunning in her “Mikaella wedding gown” and Luc, so handsome in his blue “Paul Betemly” suit.   Everyone was so great and helpful, it made the morning photo session a breeze!

After the groom and bride’s getting ready photo sessions were done, we made our way to the Tropical Greenhouse (Central Experimental Farm) to capture the first look and the wedding party photos . It was the perfect location as we practically had the whole place to ourselves. Beautiful weather, beautiful couple and beautiful everything!!! It was a fantastic adventure!

Our final destination was Next restaurent. The ceremony was performed by Lynne from the amazing team of Lynne & Keith Exceptional Ceremonies .  It was a unique interactive ceremony where she got the guests up on their feet and 100% invested in their union. It was so refreshing and gave us a lot of great photo opportunities. During the cocktails, we left the restaurent for a short time to take  family photos and some more couple photos! The reception followed  and  NeXT restaurant once again were a big part of making this wedding day a success.

Lavender was the colour, love brought them together, happiness forever! Congratulation Amélie and Luc!!!

Shilpa & Alex – Reception at the Hilton Lac-Leamy

We are now at PART THREE – The reception at the Hilton Lac-Leamy.

The room is transformed into a breathtaking, luxurious decor nothing short of what you would see on a movie set. The crab apple trees are the centre of the attention again as they stand on each side of the head table with a branch cascading above them to form the perfect setting fit for the happy couple. No details has been left out. Even the bride and groom’s monogram is on display on the walls on each side of the room. The vendors team  lead by Bharat Rudra has been on there “A game” for days. Seema Haider had the privilege to once again do the makeup and hair for Shilpa and her family. When we first saw Shilpa in her purple dress we were blown away by her beauty. Alex looked ever so handsome in his classic tux and bow tie look! But most important was how sweet, respectful, patient and totally in love Shilpa and Alex were throughout these busy days. They are truly a class act! Their families are nothing short of wonderful either! They treated their guests like royalty. From the cocktails and canapés , the breakfasts and diners, the chocolat treats, desserts  and entertainment, the guest felt like superstars for days. Both families, the Eastmen’s and the Goel’s,  greated each guest with the same attention. The wedding party along with their friends even prepared a dance and song number and made a hilarious reenactment of Alex’s proposal to Shilpa. The speeches were heartfelt, the couple’s first dance was amazing with Alex twirling Shilpa on the dance floor showing of her gorgeous gown.  Once the party started, it was nonstop. What a night…. In fact , what an amazing weekend!!!!

Here are some highlights of the reception. To see part one and part two, just click on the two posts below this one! Enjoy !

Shilpa changes her hair and make-up and put on a gorgeous Hindu wedding dress. Alex, also changed to get ready for the Baraat ceremony. With a team of professional musicians from Montreal and a crowd of 500 people, the Hilton Lac-Leamy parking lot turned into a big parade!!! It was amazing! After this, we took photos of the couple, wedding party and families around the Casino and the Hilton Lac Leamy. The Hindu ceremony was in the evening followed by Indian wedding games. It was an incredible day filled with laughter, love and happiness. Here is a look at a few of the highlights of the day. Stay tuned for PART THREE – THE RECEPTION.

Shilpa & Alex – Christian Ceremony at the Hilton Lac-Leamy

Here is PART ONE of this amazing wedding. I had to split this two day wedding in three parts as there are so many photos we wanted to share. The day started at 7h00 AM for us, so imagine how early it started for the bride and groom!!! The morning preparations were done at the Hilton Lac-Leamy.  The Presidential suite is breathtaking and offered the perfect backdrop for this luxurious wedding. Seema Haider makeup artist and her team did a wonderful job getting the bride, her family and wedding party ready on time. Bharat Rudra coordinated the wedding and made sure all the vendors, couple and family members knew exactly were to be at all times.  To bring the “mother nature” team indoors, the decorating team made replicas of crab apple trees in bloom. It was perfect with the white and blush colour palette. This was an early Cristian wedding to honour the groom’s family traditions. We took some additional photos of the family and wedding party around the Hilton. We then crossed over to the Ottawa side for more photos around the National Gallery of Canada. We were back at the Hilton for lunch and to get ready for the Hindu Celebration! (Thank you Shilpa and Alex for  being so amazing and for looking soooooo gorgeous. You two were so fun to work with and were truly a joy to photograph.

Stay tuned for PART TWO of Shilpa and Alex’s Hindu Wedding.

LEIGH-ANN & DEREK’S FAIRMONT CHATEAU LAURIER & NOTRE DAME CATHEDRAL OTTAWA WEDDING

Leigh-Ann & Derek got married at one of Ottawa’s most famous historic buildings built in 1841 , The NotreDame Cathedral Basilica. This church is so beautiful and for photographers, it is a true blessing! We also love to photograph outside the church and use the side doors in the background.

This sweet couple got ready at the Chateau Laurier, they both had rooms there so it was perfect and close to the ceremony site. Leigh-Ann has to be the tiniest bride I have ever photograph. She is so pretty and minute but has the biggest heart ever. Her natural beauty is so stunning, she looked amazing when she put on her wedding dress…wow. Derek is tall, dark and handsome. He is so thoughtful and has the nicest personality and smile!! They make a fantastic couple.   After the ceremony, we took couple and family photos around the church. When all the guests left for the cocktail, we left for a walk at Major hill’s park with the couple and wedding party. There are so many photo opportunities along the way, and walking on such a wonderful day gives time for the couple and wedding party to chat and have fun along the way! The reception was held in our favorite room at the Chateau, The Laurier Room. After diner, we took more photos of the balcony and were blessed with an amazing fireworks show. What an amazing day and evening!

To Leigh-Ann and Derek: You are beautiful, caring and perfect for each other. Congratulations !

FAIRMONT CHATEAU MONTEBELLO WEDDING – MARIAGE MONTEBELLO QUEBEC

This lovely couple tied the knot last fall. The day started on the Ontario side at both their home and parents home. The wedding was held at the “Paroisse St-Jacques” on Notre Dame Street, in Embrun,Ontario. This is a very majestic church in the middle of a small village that looks amazing visually, especially on photos!!! After the church wedding, we crossed over to the Quebec side to make our way to the Chateau Montebello. We love photographing weddings at Montebello. The scenery, the river, the marina, the chateau, the iconic fireplace, la maison Papineau, the stables, the trails in the woods… you name it, they have it. Let’s not forget to mention the staff at the hotel, always friendly and very helpful. The evening was filled with heartfelt speeches, lot’s of laughter, amazing family and friends and lot’s of dancing!!!

To Mauranne and Marc: It was a privilege to record the events of your wedding day! You are truly beautiful and we wish you the best in the new chapter of your lives together. May these wedding photos help keep the memories of your day alive and we hope you enjoy them for years to come!
