As owner of Juniper Kitchen and Wine bar, Pete and I have known each other for quite a while now. Juniper hosted Ottawa’s amazing “Dueling Chefs” events in 2010 and 2011, where I got to hang out with Pete (read: staying out of his way) in the kitchen for about a dozen Mondays each year. When he proposed to Alicia, I was thrilled that they asked me to photograph their wedding at Billings Estate Museum, followed by a reception at his own restaurant. The day was gorgeous from start to finish, and everything went as planned. It was a great time, with great weather, followed by, of course, great food.
