Regular visitors to this blog may ask themselves “Hey, didn’t Audrey and Marcelo already get married?”, and they would sort-of be correct.  Last month, I photographed their civil ceremony at Ottawa City Hall, and now it was time for the formal “wedding” celebration, held at the Air Force Officer’s Mess.  The day was beautiful from start-to-finish, with impeccable planning by Shannon at Kennedy Events.

Between Audrey’s surprise vocal solo mid-ceremony, and the insane latin-heavy dance floor, this was one to remember.  Congratulations, Audrey & Marcelo; it was a true pleasure getting to know you and your awesome families.

What a way to end a gorgeous weekend in Ottawa.  It’s hard to believe that when I first met Jen & Kosta, that I wasn’t sure if they were going to be able to make our meeting, due to the crazy deep snow.  Their engagement session at Lac La Pêche was on a gorgeous Sunday evening, after a great, hot weekend in the Nation’s Capital.

Canoeing at Lac La Pêche is exactly what they did on their very first date together, so it was really fun to be able to join them back at this special spot.  We also lucked-in with weather.  With such a hot weekend, the humidity built-up, and there were thunderstorms in the city.  We could hear the rumbling in the distance, but it was a perfect summer evening on the lake.
