Blessed Sacrament Wedding : Agnes + Tom

I guess sometimes things are just meant to be…  Agnes & Tom have known each other and were good friends back in elementary school East of Toronto, but lost touch when they moved apart as youngsters.  Fate would bring them together again when they both ended up working in Ottawa and, well, the rest is history (and the future).

Weather aside, their wedding day couldn’t have been more perfect.  Their wedding ceremony at Blessed Sacrament in Ottawa’s Glebe area was beautiful, as was their gorgeous reception at the Holiday Inn Select, Kanata.  Friends and family danced well into the early hours of the morning to celebrate with the newly married couple.  Between the ceremony and reception, we did wedding photos inside the gorgeous Museum of Nature, which gave us some Jurassic-themed photos, and we also briefly took advantage of a stop in the rain to get a few outdoors, near Dow’s Lake Pavilion.

I was fortunate enough to have Ryan Chan, a close friend & one of Toronto’s best Wedding Photographers, along with me for the entire day.  He made some gorgeous images, and I’ve included some below (his are identified).  Here are some highlights of this great wedding day for two great people.  Congrats, Aggy & Tom!

  • Maria - Hi Christian (and Ryan)!

    I have admired your work for so long, and was so excited to finally meet you at my sister’s wedding!

    Meeting you in person was absolutely amazing. I was so moved by your passion, creativity, and extremely professional you were. I love how you worked so quickly to take those challenging photos at the lake, during the very short break in rain. You worked so well together, and I was so impressed by the unexpected, different angles you captured. You were both friendly and fun to chat with, really likeable and modest!

    It was a great honor to meet you! I will recommend you to everyone! Thank you for everything you do! Best wishes to you and your family and lovely Kate!

  • aggy - Dear Christian and Ryan,

    You two are amazing. I am soooo in love with these photos. I have a million comments to write but I am at work right now so I wil write you a mega long essay later. I am so thankful to the both of you for capturing these moments of the most beautiful day of my life. Everyone had so much fun and I hope you two did too.



    • Maria - I agree, Aggy! Thank you for saying what’s on my mind. I also have the urge to write a mega long essay of appreciation, after witnessing Christian and Ryan in action!ReplyCancel

  • Peter Kalogeropoulos - You two killed it! What a lucky couple.ReplyCancel

  • Fete Photography - That portrait of them and the tree is insanely amazing. Beautiful bride, beautiful photos.ReplyCancel

  • dan - I love the shot under the whale so much. Killer work!ReplyCancel

  • bryan - 14 and 16 are CRAZY good!ReplyCancel

  • The priest - I attended Aggy and Tom’s wedding, though not in the official capacity implied by my title! (It’s just a nickname I’ve inherited – long story!)

    The picture with the bride reading a card with her sister observing is filled with emotions; to have the focus/out-of-focus work this way is great.

    As others have apparaised the one with the whale is awesome with the bride and groom in the light and the rest of the bridal party there in the shadows.

    But my favorite of all is the picture of the bride brushing a tear away with her finger. From the reflections that fill the picture it either looks like the camera is crying too or that emotions filled so much the room that even a camera could pick it. Absolutely gorgeous.

    Finally, Aggy -the bride – was one amazing subject with beautiful and rich expressions.

    Congrats to you all!ReplyCancel
