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!

Here are a some highlights of the day!

Natalie & Mathew Tie The Knot At Calabogie Peaks Resort

This wedding is one for the books!  What a wedding! The weather did not stop this bride and groom from getting married, it just delayed it for a few hours giving them a story they would not forget!!! Natalie is a lifestyle  photographer from Chalk River, ON. When she told us we had the honours of photographing her wedding, we were faltered and so happy another photographer had put her trust in us! Who said a mix of sun, rain, thunder and lightning wasn’t going to help our creative juices flowing and help us come up with amazing unique wedding photos! We hope you enjoy looking at these wedding images! (For a full story on this wedding, scroll to the bottom of the page!)

This wedding was photographed at Calabogie Peaks Resort!

Katrina & David – Brookstreet Hotel Ottawa Wedding

Katrina and David had a wonderful wedding at the Brookstreet Hotel.  The hotel was perfect for the bridal sessions with large windows and plenty of natural light. Katrina had a suite with a very modern fell giving me great photo opportunities. A first look was carefully organized outside the hotel so David and Katrina could see each other for the very first time that day. All the photos were taken around Brookstreet Hotel! The ceremony and reception followed. The service and the food were exceptional. To Katrina and David, you two are amazing together. The love you share is so eminent and when you looked at each other, it was easy to capture true love. Congratulations again and thank you for allowing me to create wonderful memories of your wedding day!

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!!!

Melissa + Paul, Bean Town Ranch Wedding

This lovely couple  from Whitehorse, Yukon decided  to get married in this part of town!  Melissa is from Cumberland Ontario and we did their engagement session at the Cumberland Museum.  For their ceremony and reception venue, they choose the Bean Town Ranch. Everything was wonderful; the weather, the venue, the entertainment from pianist and singer Kimberley Dunn, the food. There were even fireworks accross the lake after diner. What a great day. The bride looked stunning in her Lis Simon wedding gown made from a Canadian  designer from Calgary. The groom looked evenly stylish sporting a dark grey suit. Together, they are one and proved that weddings are wonderfull and so worth the effort. Here are some highlight!
