Strathmere Inn Wedding: Diana + John

Strathmere-Inn-Ottawa-Wedding-Stephanie-Beach-PhotographyThe rain never had a chance of dampening Diana + John’s wedding day!

Strathmere Inn Wedding: Diana + John, Sneak Peek

Strathmere-Inn-Ottawa-Wedding-Stephanie-Beach-PhotographyI cannot even begin to properly explain just how perfect Diana + John’s wedding day was as the start of our 2018 season.

I was properly dressed and almost completely covered from head to toe except for that one area on my forehead and the bitter cold wind found it and attacked with a vengeance!

I realize I am far from the first person to complain about the cold, and so far Ottawa isn’t the worst off in comparison to other place with the bizarre cold snap everyone is feeling right now, but I bring it up because that cold wind reminded me so much of my first winter engagement session of this season. It was cold and the wind was bitter and vengeful, but luckily it wasn’t nearly as bad as it was today and even more luckily, I got to hang out with some pretty awesome people and one really great dog!
