One of my favorite things about being a wedding photographer is the great potential for clients to become friends. This is often the case, and with Matt and Chelsea it was certainly no different. Over the past year since we first met to discuss their wedding plans, I have gotten to know them really well, and they truly are amazing people. They share a similar sense of humour, they love to spend time together, and they’re a ton of fun to hang out with. Matt even invited me along (without my camera) to his bachelor party weekend in Wasaga Beach, where, aside from realizing that I’m way too old to behave like a “frat-boy”, I got to know what a really great guy he is, with some great friends.
Their wedding day was gorgeous. It was a beautifully warm, sunny day (and not humid!) in Ottawa – as good as you could ask for. Their ceremony and reception were both at the elegant Fairmont Chateau Laurier Hotel in Ottawa, an absolutely stunning venue. The day went off without a hitch, and the party went on well into the night, with the dance floor often resembling clips of Electric Circus. It was a great time, and I think the photos tell the story of their special day.
