Ottawa Conference Centre Wedding : Kate + Josh

Josh first described himself as ‘groomzilla’ when I met with him early last year to chat about his wedding plans with Kate.  Josh was charged with a good amount of the wedding planning (which is generally unusual for grooms), since he is a good planner, and since Kate has been living in Toronto for work – which makes planning a wedding in Ottawa a bit challenging.  Neither Josh or Kate should ever have a title with ‘zilla’ at the end, except maybe ‘Awesomezilla’ or something…they’re both unbelievably nice, fun, warm, terrific people.

Their wedding was absolutely gorgeous, and anything but ordinary – since it was on a Sunday morning in January.  They chose the beautiful, new Ottawa Conference Centre (OCC) as their venue, next door to the Westin Ottawa, where they both once worked, and where they met.  Kate worked at the front desk, and Josh in the ‘driveway’ – and Josh even wore one of those iconic Westin fur hats in the winter.  An Ottawa Conference Centre Wedding made perfect sense, since they were both so familiar with the spot.

Everything was perfect, and we even managed to get a few photos outside (quickly!).  Depending on the day, outdoor wedding portraits in Ottawa in January could result in lost limbs or pneumonia, if not properly dressed.  I loved working with Kate & Josh, and wish them all of the best for their married life!  A special thanks also goes to Jessica + Dave (Josh’s best man) for referring me.  Congrats to all four of you!
