Mother Nature has been pretty kind to me all year so far, more or less, and this was definitely true during Jennifer + Phil’s wedding day as the forecast started off pretty darn gloomy but we ended up having some really great weather! We were even graced by a couple deer that passed by us during the Bride + Groom portraits.
You may think that after covering the Make-A-Wish Wine for Wishes event for so many years in a row that it would get a little redundant and boring for us, but boy-oh-boy would you ever be wrong! Wine for Wishes may have the same idea each year in that it serves scrumptious food, wine and beer from all sorts of local vineyards, breweries and restaurants, but each year offers us something new to cover (plus the idea of food and beverages is pretty foolproof, right?!).
My favourite moments during a wedding are always the private looks between the newlyweds. When the groom looks at his new bride and can’t help but smile from ear to ear, when the bride lights up when she catches his eye, and when they look down at their rings marking the start of their new life together with glee.
I love how kind the wedding industry experts are here in Ottawa! When I reached out to Stephanie and Kiley from Opportunity Knocks Events I knew our shoot would be great, but it was so much better than I had imagined and everyone involved was so awesome and inspirational. All of their hard work and talent really made shooting the session a breeze!
I know I mention that we are working on awesome stuff now and then and then never really get to mention what it is … well this time I get to share some of that awesomeness with all of you!
We got to spend yesterday afternoon with some super talented Ottawa wedding vendors putting together a gorgeous stylized session at Sidedoor Restaurant in downtown Ottawa.
