Jabulani Vineyard Wedding: Brittany + Mike

Jabulani-Vineyard-Wedding-Stephanie-Beach-PhotographyCan we talk about speeches for just a second? So there have been many times during my career as a wedding photographer where I have felt the pains of a long, drawn-out, boring speech. Or seen a fellow shy person struggle through a speech they really didn’t feel comfortable making. But the speeches at Brittany + Mike’s wedding were none of these things and instead they were utterly brilliant and so ridiculously funny! Every venue has house rules that get read by the MC before the night really begins, and although I have heard some entertaining versions before, never before have they actually been side-splitting funny!

Century Events Wedding: Kaitlin + Andrew

Century Events Wedding: Kaitlin + Andrew

Century-Events-Wedding-Ottawa-Stephanie-Beach-PhotographyI feel like every time I sit down to write a blog post for one of our weddings I draw a blank. And it’s not because I didn’t have a wonderful time at the wedding or anything like that, the exact opposite really – the day was so amazing and fun that I am completely lost for words!

So, since these two truly wonderful people will be getting their photos a little later today, I figured I should probably get this post done so I just started at the beginning (a very good place to start).

Orchard View Wedding: Miranda + Jason

Orchardview-Wedding-Ottawa-Stephanie-Beach-PhotographyThere are just some weddings that completely take your breath away. It when it does it isn’t because of any one thing but rather a combination of all the wedding day elements. The decor, the dress, the venue, the other vendors, the food, etc. – every little element coming together is what makes a day wonderful, but what makes it breathtaking is the people – and Miranda + Jason surrounded themselves with some of the best people and they themselves were an absolute dream to work with!
