I remember falling in love with this park the very first time I visited it. I instantly thought it would be so lovely to have a wedding in Stewart Park, and now many years later, we have captured multiple weddings and/or wedding day portraits (in addition to engagement and family sessions) and yet, I am just as much in love with the area as I was on the first visit.
So when Tori + Jarred changed up their wedding day plans and decided to have their entire day in the park I was 100% on board!
Wow, we just barely squeezed this wedding day in before everything got super shutdown here in Ontario. And I am sooo glad we did! Karrington + Adam had already changed up their wedding plans so much that I would have hated for them to have to take it down to the barest of bones at the last minute. But that wasn’t needed and they had a beautiful, intimate ceremony surrounded by friends + family and lots of love from those watching at home.
The rain never had a chance of dampening Diana + John’s wedding day! Not only did the sunshine of John’s life brighten up the otherwise dreary day, but just seeing how these two looked at each other and how they made each other laugh with such joy, would bring a smile to just about anyone!
I cannot even begin to properly explain just how perfect Diana + John’s wedding day was as the start of our 2018 season. From being at one of our favourite venues to all the beautiful and personal details so perfectly infused throughout everything, it was truly lovely. But as usual, what that made this wedding day so great weren’t the actual things, but rather the people. Not only are Diana + John so incredibly nice (and funny to boot), but they are absolutely one of the sweetest couples we have had the pleasure and honour of working with over the years and they surrounded themselves with family and friends who are equally as wonderful!
We have been very fortunate to photograph wedding days in some of this city’s best venues. And as much as I absolutely love working with at all of those gorgeous places (and with all of our regular industry peeps), I also really look forward to getting to capture wedding days in atypical locations too. It adds a bit of variety to our season and allows us to incorporate things that really have meaning to our couples (as these atypical venues tend to be chosen for very specific reasons).
Sabrina + Jeff’s wedding ceremony choice of the Beaverbrook Ottawa Public Library out in Kanata was definitely not your regular wedding venue – but I honestly can’t think of a spot that would have been better suited for these two amazing people!
