Jessica & Elias Say I Do At Le Belvedere – Wakefield Grand & Belvedere Guesthouse

 We love LE BELVEDERE !!! Le Belvédère is situated on the edge of a cliff overlooking the spectacular Gatineau Hills just 30 minutes from Ottawa. We are so happy Jessica and Elias chose this wedding venue for their perfect day!

Elias got ready at the The Wakefield Grand. This venue owned by Le Belvedere is the perfect spot to photograph the boys getting ready. The outdoor pathway leading to the entrance and the curved brick walls are spectacular in photos! Jessica’s gorgeous gown was by Martina Liana for Essence of Australia. Jessica’s family and the girls got ready at Le Belvedere’s GUESTHOUSE.  The first look was done just outside the Guesthouse and at the Wakefield Bridge.

 The celebration and reception took place at Le Belvédère in Wakefield The ceremony was performed by Keith from Lynne and Keith’s Exceptional Ceremonies. They always puts just the right amount of humour and take the time to get to know the couple to make the vows extra special for them! After the cliffside ceremony, we were blessed with beautiful weather, delicious hors d’oeuvres and live music during the cocktail. After family and couple photos on site, we went in a field for additional photos with the couple and their wedding party.  Wedecor did a fabulous job once again at decorating the reception hall and ceremony. The couple’s first dance was under the stars with a beautiful display of sparklers. Thank you to Le Belvedere for coordinating this wonderful moment.

To Jessica and Elias: You are amazing together. The sparks fly when you gaze into each others eyes. Elias, when you performed your song and dance for Jessica, it was like we were at a concert, it was awesome!!! You have so much talent. Jessica, you were stunning in your wedding dress. Your grace and beauty is beyond compare. It was a pleasure to get to know you and to be a part of your special day. We hope you can relive your wedding day each time you look at your photos!

Martine & Marc’s Wedding At Le Belvédère in Wakefield Quebec

So much preparation and effort goes out into planning weddings. It takes a year or more to plan everything… up to the little details that make each weddings unique. We are proud to be a part of this process and to help our couples get as much  information possible. Planning is the key!  We are here to help as this is not our first rodeo. Since 1982, our studio has photographed well over 1300 weddings! We put so much effort in what we do and continue to offer a wide range of printed albums, photos and wall size signature collection portraits!  Weddings are rewarding to photograph and give us an incredible feeling of creative satisfaction!(especially when the couples get to see the photos for the first time).

 Martine and Marc’s wedding is a perfect example of why we love our job! When we found out how Marc proposed, we knew we had to documents their love story. This beautiful, sweet, totally in love, adorable couple gave us “Carte Blanche” to create beautiful memorable images for them. They had 100% confidence in us and we took the time to get to know them, and find out what style of photography they loved.  They choose the amazing Le Belvédère in Wakefield as their wedding venue. The beautiful flowers and decorations were done by Wedecor.

 To Martine and Marc: Your vows were so beautiful and emotional, there was not a dry eye in the audience (including us, at one point, we were hiding our tears behind the camera). The photography session during the cocktails went so well. It was so easy to capture the love you have for one another. Your wedding party was awesome and we loved photographing your families. Fast forwarding to the reception, the speeches were memorable, heartfelt and hilarious!!! Who knew your childhood memories could be so entertaining! Your siblings did a fine job at painting us a clear picture! You are blessed because you are surrounded by families and friends that love you so much. Congratulations!  (P.S.: To the bridesmaid who had the same cell phone we did… sorry for accidentally taking it during the whole reception, LOL…We are so happy we realized it before we left!)
