Ottawa Wedding Photographer | Break out the L-word

You learn a lot about a couple by the speeches that people make at weddings. When I met Dannik and Mike, I thought that they were incredibly kind, thoughtful, creative and totally in love. The speeches at their wedding confirmed this.  Every single speaker spoke beautifully about this couple. They described a couple that makes those around them feel special, loves to have fun and who live life to the fullest.  The wedding they threw reflected all of these things too. They threw a movie themed reception at the beautiful Chateau Laurier and the details were incredible! Chocolate Oscars for the seating assignments, movie posters (with their faces on them!) for the centrepieces, filmstrip decorations, slideshows and videos, a red carpet photo booth- it was such an experience for all of their guests (and the photographers!).  One of the highlights was this brilliant and hilarious video that they made to introduce the wedding party – the guests LOVED it!

Dannik and Mike – thank you so much for having me out to photograph your wedding. I loved capturing your story and learning more about the wonderful people you are. It was a pleasure to witness how much you love and respect each other and those around you. I hope that your day was everything you imagined it was going to be because it was truly an incredible event for all who came!

A very special thank you to Heather Sternes for second shooting with me (you are amazing!). Thank you also to Lynn Lee the incredible wedding planner who is starting her new venture  and the other vendors: Show Pony Hair, Full Bloom Floral Design , One Fine Beauty , Catherine’s Cakery , incredible dancing by Pulse N’Limited Dance Crew and Quality Entertainment.

And now onto the photos..
