A guy from Washington, DC marries a girl from Montreal and have a destination wedding at Mont Tremblant, while they live in New York City…but moved to Paris mid-way through the wedding planning.  So, why not have photographers from Ottawa and Nashville while we’re at it?  Whoa.  I can’t imagine how complex this incredible wedding must have been to plan, but if anyone could knock a complicated one like this out of the park, it’s Lynn Lee.  Everything was beautiful and perfectly executed, down to the last detail.  No, she isn’t related, but I may try to adopt her as my sister.

Isabelle & Ali’s wedding day really was just perfect.  Obviously, the setting at Hotel Quintessence is simply gorgeous, but then add great weather, an amazing group of friends who love to dance, loving families, a lot of cocktails & great food, and a killer DJ (Joel Lalonde)…and it’s magic stuff.  There were so many great moments throughout the day, it felt like it flew by.  I was also lucky enough to have my good friend Paul Rowland up from Nashville to shoot this wedding with me, and I hope between the two of us we did this awesome day justice.  It was also fantastic to work alongside other friends, Sylvain & Caroline from Reno Video.  They were so great to work with, I hope to do it again soon!

Congratulations, Isabelle + Ali…that was way too much fun!

What started as a grey, drizzly day, finished nothing short of perfect.  Krysta + Brendan’s Stonefields wedding was full of everything that weddings should be full of; love, laughter, dancing, hugging & scotch.  :)

Congrats, Krysta + Brendan…thanks for letting me capture your incredible day!

Stonefields Barn at night

I first met Sarah + Dan a couple of years ago, after they were guests at Kristina + Toon’s wedding.  They were planning a large wedding that would be held in May 2015 at the Notre Dame Basilica in Ottawa, with the reception at the fabulous Chateau Laurier.  As planning progressed, they realized that a big “to-do” really wasn’t what they really wanted, so they decided to stop, regroup, and really figure out what they wanted for their wedding day.

In the end, they went the complete opposite direction, and decided to have their wedding at the Wakefield Mill, with an intimate outdoor ceremony along the river beside the gorgeous Inn, followed by a beautiful dinner at the hotel.  The entire day couldn’t have been more perfect – from the weather, to the beautiful venue, and the great, close-knit group of family and close friends.  I’m so happy that, despite the changes to their wedding plans, they kept me as their photographer – it was a true pleasure to capture their day….I love these guys.  Congratulations, Sarah + Daniel!

Here are some of my favourites from their day:
