Britt & Andrew Say I DO – Ottawa Wedding Photographers- Chateau Laurier

Welcome to Britt and Andrew’s Ottawa wedding photography blog. This downtown Ottawa wedding has everything to inspirer any bride planning a wedding in the nation’s capital. We were also teamed up with some pretty incredible Ottawa wedding vendors:

Stacey Price from Marry Me Productions, Erin from Full Bloom Floral Design  , the wonderful event team at the : Fairmont Chateau Laurier as well as Kimberley Dunn, an amazing singer and pianist.

I can describe this wedding in three words; elegance, timeless and breathtaking!!! Britt is wonderful, beautiful and sweet and Andrew’s  handsomeness, east coast charm and wit landed him the girl of his dreams. Together, they gave a memorable emotional wedding speech that brought the house down in laughter and joy. The day was perfect, their family and friends were wonderful and the vendors made this wedding top shelf. To Britt and Andrew, we wish you the best in your new lives together!

Krystal & Shawn’s Edwards Ontario Country Wedding

Krystal and Shawn have a beautiful dream property with horses and a riding arena in Edwards Ontario. When they started to plan the wedding, there was no question in their mind their home was going to be “the wedding venue”. We started the day at the bride and groom’s home with Shawn and his family. We then made our way to the parent’s newly renovated farm home 2 minutes from the couple’s property. The farm house provided the perfect  rustic style and blended magically with the theme of the wedding. The ceremony was held outdoors next to the couple’s riding arena. They even built their own wedding arch out of distressed wood. The hanging flowers were in vintage medicine bottles… wow, this couple is so detailed oriented, they bring a whole new meaning to DIY weddings. They even had lavender in paper cones for the guests to throw like confetti for their first walk down the aisle as husband and wife! What a unique idea that gave us  breathtaking photos.  The couple photos, family and wedding party was done in their hay field. The weather was beautiful and their friends and family provided the perfect atmosphere! Love was in the air! The bride looked stunning in her Enzoani designer dress from Baroness Bridal Boutique.  The groom looked equally charming sporting a cowboy hat for the couple’s session. The reception was held inside their riding arena. The decor included vintage typewriters , old rustic wood barrels, hay bales, antique tea cups and antique wagons. A perfect decor for a country chic outdoor wedding! Here is a look at some off the images of their wonderful day! To Krystal and Shawn: Congratulations and we wish you the best!

We are happy to share photos from Charline and Yves’s September wedding.  No travel time was needed because the wedding was all  in one location. They invested countless hours in getting their beautiful property ready for their 2014 barn wedding .

This resulted in a totally relaxed atmosphere and a fun “no stress” day for everyone!!!  This lovely couple made their dream wedding a reality by doing everything themselves, one step at a time….!!!  This DIY bride thought of every single detail! She  handmade boutonnieres made out of  bullet shells and hand sewn fabric flowers for the bouquets. She even made custom beer bottle openers out of wood and nickels as favors! WOW! Team up Pinterest with Charline’s talent, this girl is now our poster bride for the DIY weddings!

To Charline and Yves, we wish you a lifetime of health, love and happiness!

We had the pleasure of photographing this lovely couple as bridesmaid and groomsmen at many of their friend’s weddings, but this time, finally as bride and groom :). Getting to know our clients and developing a great relationship is the key to successful wedding images.  Late September is our favorite times to photograph weddings. The vegetation is at its fullest, it’s not to hot, there’s usually a nice breeze and the sun set’s at the perfect time.

Jeremie was ready for his photo session when we arrived at their beautifully renovated home. (If you are looking to renovate your home, Jeremie Dicaire is your guy!!! His custom work and craftsmanship are amazing. The house, the furniture, the lighting and decor were perfect for photos… all the boys looked really handsome. Jeremie was the best model ever!

After the boy’s coverage, we went to Jeremie’s parent’s home in Orleans for Christa’s bridal session. Wow, she was gorgeous. Everything was perfectly laid out for us and the bridesmaids even had matching kimono robes. Christa is a beautiful, generous and kind person that always thinks of others first. Her personality is infectious and everyone just loves being around her.

The ceremony was at the museum of Cumberland. The outdoor setting was perfect and Christa and Jer hand made all the decorations and accessories that made this country wedding look so “chic”. The defining moment of the ceremony was when Jeremie saw Christa for the first time in her wedding dress…there was not one dry eye in the audience. During the ceremony, a big bull made its way close to us and started ” mooooooing” really loud after the exchanging of the vows, kinda saying he approved..lol. After the ceremony, there was a photo opportunity with the bull, we’ll, if you look at the photos in the post below, the bull really liked Christa and especially her bouquet…all in good humor, no one got hurt and it just gave the guests another story to talk about during the family and bridal party photos. Everywhere you looked, there were photo opportunities at the Cumberland museum…it is such a wonderful venue for wedding photographs. The sunflowers were gigantic and we used them as the backdrop for a lot of photos. When we were finishing the couple’s session, the clouds rolled in and it started pouring rain. We only had one series of photos left to do on the museums train track and we convinced the bride to get “a little wet”. We are all so thankful it was such a beautiful sunny day until that moment.
The reception was held at “The Ottawa Hunt and Golf Club”. Christa and Jeremie are surrounded by amazing friends and families. The speeches were so wonderful, emotional and funny, and, to top it off, the wedding party offered a show stopping performance of a ” wedding rap” to the famous fresh prince of Belair music. The maid of honor Avery and Jeremy’s brother and best man Jasmin wrote the lyrics to this hilarious rap about the lovely couple.  I could hardly focus because I was laughing so hard…High five to the wedding party, this was the best performance from a wedding party ever !!!…
To Christa and Jer, thank you for trusting us to take your wedding photographs. You two are wonderful, perfect for each other, smart, beautiful, and beyond kind. We wish you the very best !!!

 Sarah and Matt tied the knot on a beautiful summer day. The venue was amazing. For a short time, the  Carleton University in Ottawa accepted to do weddings and Sarah and Matt were fortunate to be amongst the very few that got the chance to use this new conference center in Ottawa. Sarah looked radiant, beautiful and elegant in her McCaffrey designer dress and Matt, so handsome.  The wedding ceremony  was on the Carleton University terrace overlooking the park and river. It was a beautiful setting. To make it even better, Keith Langille, from exceptional ceremonies preformed the ceremony and made it original, unique, and added just the right amount of humor to keep the guests and family totally connected from beginning to end!

The family , wedding party and couple photos were done on the terrace and Carleton University grounds. Here are some highlights of the wedding day.

Congratulations again Sarah and Matt. You are perfect for each other. We wish you the best!

Kim and Justin met in 2002 while they were both still attending high school. Justin was in grade 12 and Kim was in grade 10. Although they both went to the same high school (St. Matthews), they did not know each other before they started dating. They met each other for the first time when Kim was invited to go to Justin`s house with a mutual friend. That night Justin asked Kim for her number and they quickly began dating. Justin officially asked Kim if she wanted to “make things official” on October 9th, 2002 and they have been together ever since!!! 

The wedding day started at the groom’s house in Ottawa. Then, we made our way to the Arc Hotel where we photographed Kim and the girls getting ready (she had the cutest flower girls ever) The rest of the wedding day was at Stanley’s Olde Maple farm in Edwards, Ontario. The venue is great for photos, the staff is very helpful and the weather was blazing hot- actually, it was the warmest day we’ve had so far all summer. On another note, Earl from Stanley’s Olde Maple farm went above and beyond for the couple as Kim wanted a photo with her favorite tree, the weeping willow. Since Earl did not have one on his property, he drove around Edwards to find one for Kim. That is great service!  Kim and Justin, you are perfect for each other!!! During the whole day you both were so happy, relaxed and spontaneous that photographing you was such a pleasure… Here are some highlights of your wedding day.
