New Year’s Eve Wedding at Juniper Kitchen : Mandy + David

When Mandy and David first approached me about photographing their New Year’s Eve wedding last year, I hesitated for about 10 seconds before saying “absolutely!”.  While the idea of spending NYE with a group of complete strangers was never at the top of my to-do list, the idea of combining the fun of a New Year’s Eve party with the joy of the marriage of two great people is just something too special to not want to be a part of.

This year, December 31st in Ottawa was one of the c-c-c-oldest days of the year, so we didn’t even entertain the idea of photos outside.  At -20C, it would have been outright dangerous.  I suggested that we do some photos indoors at the Canadian Museum of Nature instead, and both Mandy and David immediately loved the idea.  David’s first thought was “Dinosaur wedding photos….yesssss!”.

The wedding ceremony and reception at Juniper were both absolutely perfect and gorgeous, and it was an extremely fun New Year’s Eve.  A year ago I thought I was planning to spend NYE with strangers, and it ended up being spent with new friends.   Congratulations Mandy + David!
