Jessica & Steve : Married! | Juniper Kitchen & Wine Bar Wedding | Ottawa Wedding Photographer

I’d love to say that I was really looking forward to Jessica & Steve’s wedding for a long time, but it couldn’t possibly be true.  They contacted me in late spring, about their wedding that was being planned for July.  This is a seriously cool couple, who definitely do things their own way.   No formal engagement, short timelines…hmmm.  When I first met with Jessica to discuss their plans, she immediately said “No, I know what you’re thinking, and I’m not pregnant”.  They’ve been happy together for a number of years, and simply decided to get married.  And once they decided that’s what they were doing, why wait?

Their ceremony was on the beautiful property at Steve’s parents’ home, and the reception was at Juniper Kitchen & Wine Bar – both of which are in the Westboro area of Ottawa.  They had gorgeous weather, incredible food, and a wild party that lasted well into the early morning.  Things couldn’t have gone more smoothly – apart from Jessica getting blood on Steve’s suit and shirt…but that’s a whole other story, and thankfully it was nothing a little bit of ice water couldn’t fix.
