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 !

Christina & Daniel – Notre Dame Cathedral Basilica of Ottawa Wedding

Christina and Daniel got married last September at the famous Ottawa Landmark Notre Dame Basilica. What a beautiful day. We can say it was perfect. When we got to the Bernado’s home for the groom’s coverage, we got a warm welcome from mom, dad , family and friends. The house was photo ready already!!! Mom was serving all the special appetizers and treats she had spent hours making and the boys were having a blast.  We then made our way to the Timpson’s home for the bridal photos. Christina was beautiful in her Mori Lee wedding dress. The ambience in the house was amazing…All the family and friends were there to see her walk down the stairs…let’s just say the party had already started! The ceremony was held at the Notre dame Basilica and the family photos were done on the church grounds. We then took photos around the church,  National Art Gallery,  Chateau Laurier and the locks at the Rideau Canal ( A big thank you goes to the young man that took a polaroid snap of the couple and gave it to them as a souvenir, it made a great photo!!!) The bride, groom and wedding party were the best models!!! We had so much fun during the photo session, it was a blast! The reception was held at the Centurian Banquet Hall on Colonade Road in Ottawa. The evening was filled with love and laughter while the live music and the  MC offered amazing entertainment….To top it off, Elvis even showed up to give a 30 minute show! Just when we were  leaving, the buffet was served. I have never seen so much homemade goodies at a wedding before. Everything was so good! To Christina and Daniel: May your lives be filled with greatness, love, health and lot’s of babies!!! It was a great memorable wedding and a pleasure to be a part of it!
