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 !

 Corey and Marijke are living their first year as husband and wife in Scotland. Corey Cowick is playing for the “Braehead Clan of the Elite Ice Hockey League “. What a great way to travel the world! We wish them good luck in their new lives as husband and wife.

We were lucky to have photographed their special day at the Evermore Weddings & Events in Almonte Ontario. The day was magical, everything was perfect. This venue is amazing and  the catering was done by ” Salt” . We highly recommend them both! The first dance was performed by their friends, the speeches were heartfelt and they were surrounded by great friends and family.  We have been honored to photograph Corey and Marijke’s wedding day. Here are some highlights of the day!

Rain or shine,  Leah and Andrew’s wedding day was nothing short of a fairy tale. The rain could not put a damper on this day. We started with the  bridal session early in the morning in Orleans.  The groom’s coverage was done at the VENUE: The Belvedere in Wakefield.  The ceremony, originally planned outdoors, had to be moved inside because of the rain…but, no worries, this venue has all the angles covered offering an indoor ceremony location with big windows and plenty of natural light. The groom and his groomsmen were wearing Michael Kors suits  from Tip Top.  The bridesmaids walked down the aisle in fashion with dressed by Amsale from With Love Bridal Boutique. All eyes were on the bride when she light up the room in her  Enzoani gown  from Baroness Bridal . After the beautiful ceremony from OFFICIANT : Keith Langille , the guests were treated to cocktails and hors d’oeuvres while we photographed the families, wedding party and couple. Luckily, the rain stopped long enough for us to take advantage of the breathtaking backdrops the Belvedere has to offer for wedding photography. We finished the session at the famous Red Wakefield covered bridge. A delicious diner, wonderful speeches, a photo booth and lot’s of dancing thanks to the  DJ: Pulse Entertainment was at the rendez-vous! The evening was filled with fun, happy tears,  laughter and love and went on without a glitch thanks to the wedding coordinator Jessica Davey.

To Leah and Andrew, we wish you a lifetime of happiness!!!

Stonefields Heritage Farm  is a beautiful venue for weddings in the nation’s capital!!!! The venue offers a breathtaking backdrop for the wedding ceremonies. Josee and Dan are a wonderful couple; they have beauty, kindness, love and amazing families and friends in their entourage. After the morning bridal session and the groom’s morning photo at the Brookstreet Hotel, we were off to Stonefields Heritage Farm for the ceremony and an unforgettable evening. Josee arrived in style in her father’s vintage classic car. The ceremony was officiated by the bride’s father’s best friend which added a personal touch. It was a very touching and emotional moment and Josee’s dad was there watching over them. The photos were taken on the property while the guests enjoyed the cocktails and amazing food served up by Thyme and Again Creative Catering. The reception followed and was blessed with great speeches, wonderful moments, dancing and partying all night long.   Joelle’s talent as a photographer really shines in vintage country chic weddings. Josee and Dan have beautiful artistic wedding photos that will help them relive the day over and over again. Here are some images from Josée and Dan’s august wedding…

Congratulations to the happy couple!
