Fairmont Chateau Laurier Wedding: Melissa + Rami

Ottawa-Notre-Dame-Chateau-Laurier-Wedding-Stephanie-Beach-PhotographyI have been putting off writing this blog post for so long now, but not because I don’t like writing or any of those sorts of reasons, no, I have been putting it off because there were so many amazing things that happened during Melissa + Rami’s wedding that I honestly don’t even know where to start! 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!

Monk Environmental Park Engagement Session: Brittany + Mike

Monk-Environmental-Park-Engagement-Session-Stephanie-Beach-PhotographyEveryone was so anxious for Summer to get here, they just couldn’t wait for the warm weather to come and to be able to get those summer tans started. Me on the other hand, well I could have done with a bit more Spring. As pretty as Summer can be, I’m really not a huge fan. And one of the reason for that is because of the bugs!┬áSummer to me equates to multiple months of whacking bugs and scratching the inevitable (and abundant) bites, and Brittany + Mike’s engagement session was the start of all of that for me this year as I came away with so many bites that I lost count. That being said, it was all so incredibly worth it as in the end as I got to spend a wonderful evening with these two and we created some gorgeous photos together!

Temple’s Sugar Bush Wedding: Victoria + Nathan

Temples-Sugar-Bush-Wedding-Stephanie-Beach-PhotographyWe have been to a lot of great weddings, and a lot of weddings with absolutely hilarious moments, but I think Victoria + Nathan‘s wedding was the first where I actually paused to repeat the hilarity to Dave (which, in case you don’t know, is what I do when I find something really, really funny), because at the start of their vows, they went back and forth with their lines, and Rick-Rolled all of their guests!
