Mariage de Valérie + Cédrick – Casselman & Hilton Lac-Leamy Wedding

A great friendship grew since we first met Valerie and Cedrick for their wedding consultation. Valerie planned every single detail of her wedding day and she did an amazing job. Just to paint you a picture: Val would show up coffee in hand while we first talked about her wedding…and then, we all ended up talking about everything else!!!!!  From the engagement session to the save the date photos, from the invitations design  to the last minute details, from corporate business photos to wedding photos, our friendship grew and grew!!!  She holds a very important place in our hearts and, a special chair in our office, LOL. Her determination and attention to details made this wedding day one to remember!

The ceremony was held at the  “paroisse Ste-Euphémie” in Casselman. The family, wedding party and couple photos were taken at the National Gallery of Canada. The reception was held in the Mozart room at the Hilton Lac-Leamy.

Love was in the air! The weather was amazing, the decorations by Makin’it Lovely  and the flowers by Flore & Sens were beautiful, the service and food at the Hilton was excellent, the wedding cakes by The Girl With The Most Cake were scrumptious, the entertainment was awesome ” especially Cedrick’s original song he wrote and sang to Val!  This was a top shelf wedding!

Congratulations to Valerie and Cedrick!! Val, you are so beautiful, elegant and sweet!  Your wedding dress by Madison James fit you so perfectly. Cedrick, you are handsome, and a charmer!! The song you sang to Val was the highlight of the evening!  Your devotion  and love for each other is infectious. Here are some highlights of your wedding.

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!!!

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 !

ISABELLE & SCOTT’S BEAUTIFUL CUMBERLAND HERITAGE VILLAGE MUSEUM WEDDING

 Elegance, beauty and class in an organic country setting… This sums up Isabelle and Scott’s wedding pretty well. The museum is located on a 100-acre site in the Village of Cumberland and is home to a small number of livestock in the summer, a working sawmill, forge, carpentry and pump factory, and several other buildings of local historical significance as the schoolhouse, the church and the train station. This museum is an amazing venue for an outdoor wedding, it is only 25 minutes from downtown Ottawa and the scenery and photo opportunity are endless!  We started the day with the groom’s coverage at their friend’s home followed by Isabelle’s bridal session at her parents home in Orleans. The ceremony and the reception was held on site at the Cumberland Museum. The ceremony’s location was carefully selected and designed by Stacey Price and Erin Charmichael from The Design Co. in an alley between two rows of majestic trees. It was breathtaking. When the flower petals where set, and Isabelle walked down the aisle, it was a beautiful moment. To view more photos showcasing the details, style and colour scheme from this wedding, visit The Design co‘s website. The weather was perfect, the guests mingled and visited the site while we took the wedding party and family photos. After the cocktail, we all made our way to the outdoor reception area and enjoyed nachos, tacos, pizza’s and salads from a variety of gourmet food trucks chosen by the bride and groom. Everyone partied on till the early morning!!!

To Isabelle and Scott: Thank you for allowing us to record the events of you’re wedding day. It is a privilege and a great honour to be a part of our couple’s most special day! You make a beautiful couple. We wish you happiness forever and love always!

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!!!

 Erica and Brennan planned their Ottawa wedding from their home in Calgary. It was important for them to come back home to be with family and friends for their big day! They are an amazing couple; genuine, down to earth, easy going and gorgeous inside and out. We started the day at  Les Suites Hotel in Ottawa for the bridal and groom’s session.
