The Father and Daughter Ball is a wonderful tradition here in Ottawa that has been around for a number of years now. But the area was definitely missing the other half of the equation – there really wasn’t a Mother & Son Ball, until now that is!
The Imagine Mother & Son Ball was complete with fun activities throughout the Canada Science and Technology Museum, great visits from some pretty special guests, a photo booth, great food (plus candy!) and of course dancing too! And it was truly a huge hit with everyone and if that wasn’t enough, it was all in support of one of our absolute favourite charities, Make-A-Wish Eastern Ontario!
If there is one thing I have learned while covering weddings and events, it is that events like these don’t just plan themselves. There is a lot of time, thought and energy behind that one gorgeous day or night and when it comes to a charity event, it definitely takes an extra special breed of person to be able to pull it off.
We have been so lucky this year to be a part of Make-A-Wish events already: Wine for Wishes, the 4 Four wishes event and of course, Griffin’s wish come true. All three of these were absolute amazing. And being able to capture a wish as definitely one of the highlights of our year, without a doubt.
And just to make sure our year was even more remarkable than it already was thanks to this amazing charity, they asked us to be part of the 10th Annual 3 Wishes Gala!!
I mentioned in the sneak peek that the drive up to Wakefield is so beautiful and is only going to get better looking as the trees fill with leaves (and think of how stunning this place will look in the Fall with all those amazing colours!). It is a wonderful drive and an even better spot for weddings, which is likely why Le Belvedere chose it for their fantastic venue and why our time spent there was not only a feast for the eyes, but a ton of fun also!
Even though the trees were a little on the bare side, the drive up to Wakefield Quebec this past weekend was still a stunning one and the area is only going to get more and more beautiful as the nicer weather comes around. It’s the perfect spot for a wedding!!
