Mollie & Matt : St. Mary’s Parish & Juniper Kitchen Wedding

I gave a brief bio on Mollie & Matt when I posted their engagement shoot back in the late Spring, so I won’t re-introduce them as a couple.  What I will do, is talk about what a fantastic wedding day they had.  Not only did they completely luck-in with the only nice weather day in a 10-day stretch, but absolutely everything went flawlessly.  They both got ready on the 20th floor at the Westin Hotel in Ottawa – with gorgeous views from both rooms, and I found a nice, quiet spot on a terrace between the new Ottawa Convention Centre and the Westin to do their “1st look”.  After meeting-up with family at The Shore Club Restaurant, we headed across the street along the canal for some of the family/bridal party photos…wow – if you ever want to experience being “photobombed”, try taking photos along the Rideau Canal near the Chateau Laurier on a sunny Saturday in July.  From there, we headed to St. Mary’s Parish in Ottawa West for the Ceremony, followed by an amazing night at Juniper Kitchen & Wine Bar, it was a great party, incredible music (from D.J. Kwesi Bourne) that kept the dance floor packed until after 2am, and of course, the always stunning food that can be expected at Juniper.  For me, big highlights included Mollie & her Dad’s 1st Dance – which broke-out into Gangnam style at one point, and her grandmother completely tearing-up the dance floor most of the night…showing the kids how it’s really done.

Congratulations to Mollie & Matt – who are currently honeymooning in an undisclosed location (seriously – even Mollie didn’t know where they were going)!!
