Temple’s Sugar Bush Wedding: Victoria + Nathan

Temples-Sugar-Bush-Wedding-Stephanie-Beach-PhotographyWe have been to a lot of great weddings, and a lot of weddings with absolutely hilarious moments, but I think Victoria + Nathan‘s wedding was the first where I actually paused to repeat the hilarity to Dave (which, in case you don’t know, is what I do when I find something really, really funny), because at the start of their vows, they went back and forth with their lines, and Rick-Rolled all of their guests!

Ottawa Library + Table 40 Restaurant Wedding: Sabrina + Jeff

Brookstreet-Hotel-Wedding-Preparation-Stephanie-Beach-Photography-details-love

We have been very fortunate to photograph wedding days in some of this city’s best venues. And as much as I absolutely love working with at all of those gorgeous places (and with all of our regular industry peeps), I also really look forward to getting to capture wedding days in atypical locations too. It adds a bit of variety to our season and allows us to incorporate things that really have meaning to our couples (as these atypical venues tend to be chosen for very specific reasons).

Sabrina + Jeff’s wedding ceremony choice of the Beaverbrook Ottawa Public Library out in Kanata was definitely not your regular wedding venue – but I honestly can’t think of a spot that would have been better suited for these two amazing people!

Red Pine Camp, Golden Lake Wedding: Mary + Adam

Red Pine Camp Golden Lake Wedding Stephanie Beach Photography 23A lot of brides use their wedding bouquet to help commemorate a loved one who isn’t around anymore, or to cherish a special moment or item.

But Mary’s wedding bouquet has to be one of the sweetest and most thoughtful ones we have photographed yet as it was literally made from notes the bride received from her mom over the years.

Lago Bar & Grill Restaurant Wedding: Jennifer + Kyle

Ottawa-Lago-Wedding-Stephanie-Beach-Photography-confederation-park-dows-lakeWhen I showed up at the Arc Hotel to start Jenn’s bridal prep I walked into a room of cool, calm and collected ladies (and one of the cutest flowergirls ever, who let me know exactly who her mommy was and that I was not to steal her). They were all just so relaxed and positive, it was an absolutely joy to be around. Mix that with the absolutely stunning details Jenn had set aside for me (look at those shoes!!!) and it was definitely the absolute best way to start a wedding day.

Red Pine Camp, Golden Lake Wedding: Mary + Adam, Sneak Peek

Red-Pine-Camp-Golden-Lake-Wedding-Stephanie-Beach-PhotographyThe drive out to Golden Lake, although long, was absolutely gorgeous. The sky was clear and oh so pretty and the temperature was just right (well according to me who loves the cooler weather), and the closer we got, the better the views got! The area is absolutely stunning and Red Pine Camp itself is such a great place, not only for camping and just generally having a good time, but also for a really relaxed and awesome wedding.
