So we all know that Ottawa is cold this time of the year. And therefore, whether or not you have been part of one, you could figure out that outdoor engagement session (or really outdoor sessions of any kind) could be a little more than uncomfortable when you factor in all the time spent without coats on. And that is why looking at indoor locations can be a really great idea for your session. So when Hannah + Curtis suggested doing their photos in and around the Canadian Museum of Nature, I was super on board!
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!
Their sneak peek was all about their four legged guest, Archer. And, in my opinion, he deserved the attention as he was just so awesome Jenna + Tim’s day. So cuddly, fluffy and soft and sweet as can be – and quite photogenic to boot! He wasn’t named Best Dog for nothing after all.
But the highlight of this wedding day really was the lovely couple themselves. Jenna + Tim are so wonderful and sweet.
The most important factor on any wedding day is the people. The lovely couple of course, but also the friends and family that help them celebrate their love. And when you are planning your day, you need to remember that some of the most important ‘people’ in your life have fur and four legs.
So apparently I never blogged the final images of the Make-A-Wish’s Annual Four Wishes Event, but that definitely doesn’t mean the event wasn’t absolutely amazing!
It was a bit chilly (thanks Mother Nature), and we definitely walked around the entire day with out coats and scarves on (okay, I wear a scarf all the time in non-Summer months, so saying I wore it the entire day probably doesn’t mean much), but it was oh worth it! We had so much fun and felt so lucky to be able to capture all of the amazing events that took place during the day.
