Lisa + Brandon’s brunch wedding at the gorgeous Fairmont Chateau Laurier was originally supposed to be at Rockcliffe Pavillion and Mill Street Brewpub. Partway through the planning process they decided that they wanted to do something a little different, and that ended up being a brunch wedding at the Chateau. Lisa is very spontaneous, and Brandon is one of the most laid-back people I’ve met. Together, they make such a great balance, and were a joy to work with.
Their whole wedding day was perfect. It was one of those absolutely gorgeous late August weekends in Ottawa, where it was nice and warm, yet comfortable…a perfect day to be outside on the Chateau Laurier terrace. I know this probably sounds like I’m being overly romantic, but this wedding, on this terrace, at this hotel, on this weekend, made me seriously appreciate how lucky I am to live in Ottawa. There was really nothing that could have made it nicer.
The ceremony was really beautiful, and made fun & personal, thanks to Lynne. After some famous Chateau Laurier brunch (including made-to-order omelettes by Jimmy, the omelette guy), Lisa + Brandon took a walk along the Rideau Canal locks, and the Ottawa River, where I got some photos of the newlyweds. Congratulations, Lisa + Brandon!
