Chateau Laurier Wedding for the Modern Romantic...

Chateau Laurier Wedding for the Modern Romantic…

So we have only photographed two weddings at the Chateau Laurier, but it has fast become our absolute favourite venue in Ottawa. We love every one of the rooms & how they all have their own unique details. The touch of the old world you feel at the Chateau feels like a little piece of Europe here in Ottawa and we find weddings there utterly romantic.

When Koko first contacted us from Vancouver, we fell in love with her entire wedding vision. The location, the dress, and the prettiest colour palette had us so excited for this August wedding.

The actual wedding itself totally stole our hearts, it was a dream wedding. The Design Co did such a stunning job with bringing to life Koko’s entire vision. Florals are always one of my favourite elements on a wedding day, and the loose & whimsical designs by the Design Co were simply beautiful. Koko was an absolutely stunning bride on her wedding day, every single detail of her ensemble had come together perfectly. Also we love nothing more that an elegant, black tuxedo on a groom and Warsame’s was just perfection.

This wedding also was featured by Style me Pretty, have a look here to read more about how Koko & Warsame met, and the vision behind their stunning Ottawa Chateau Wedding…

Puglia Seaside Elopement

Puglia Seaside Elopement

Let us look for secret things
somewhere in the world,
on the blue shore of silence
or where the storm has passed,
rampaging like a train.
There the faint signs are left,
coins of time and water,
debris, celestial ash
and the irreplaceable rapture
of sharing in the labor
of solitude and the sand

~PABLO NERUDA

Chic Ottawa Wedding at Evermore

Country Chic Wedding at Evermore...

This was our first wedding at the stunning Evermore in Almonte, and it was absolutely beautiful.  This wedding was a true country chic celebration, all put together flawlessly by Kirsty from TopKnot.  Florals are always one of my favourite elements of a wedding day, and the lush flowers by Pollen Nation did not disappoint.  What else could be better than spending a warm summers evening, with all of your family & friends in the country, to celebrate the start of the rest of your lives together...

Fairytale Wedding at the Chateau Laurier

amalfi-coast-film-wedding-photographer-lace-luce-peony-hand-drawn-sketch.jpg

Fairytale Wedding at the Chateau Laurier...

You must remember this,
A kiss is still a kiss
A sigh is just a sigh
The fundamental things apply as time goes by...
And when two lovers woo
They still say
"I love you"
On that you can rely ~ As time goes by, Diana Krall

This was our first wedding at the Chateau Laurier & it was absolutely stunning & perfect in every way.  As always when working Elise from Toast Events every single detail was perfectly curated to Lauren's vision.  Lauren & Elias travelled all the way from California for their wedding, and after hearing all of their ideas & vision it was truly magical to see it all come together.   

I really could go on & on about how perfect & special this wedding was but instead I will show you...

Elegant Wedding at Marincanto & Rada

Elegant Seaside Wedding at Rada...

"Positano is a dream place that isn't quite real when you are there and becomes beckoningly real after you have gone" ~John Steinback

This wedding was absolute perfection.  I was in love with every little detail Janie selected for her day.  The Ines Di Santo gown, Sophia Webster shoes and even matching details for her little daughter.  It was all gorgeous and perfect for a wedding on the Amalfi Coast.  The day began at one of our favourite spots, the Marincanto hotel.  Their terrace has the most perfect mountain view as a backdrop for a wedding ceremony.  After the ceremony the couple had their reception at Rada restaurant right on the beach in Positano.  It was our first time photographing a wedding at Rada and it is such a special space for a wedding.  How magical to be surrounded by all your family & friends, with the lights of Positano glistening all around, celebrating your wedding to the sounds of the crashing waves of the sea...

Classic Villa Cimbrone Wedding

Classic Villa Cimbrone Wedding

When I first met up with Danielle when she arrived in Italy she shared with me that she had once visited Ravello as a little girl, and attended a wedding at the stunning Villa Cimbrone.  After she told her mom that one day she too would get married there.  On September 6th of this year that dream came true...

Herb Garden Wedding

Herb Garden Wedding

Catherine and Mark had the sweetest down to earth wedding at the Herb Garden this past July.  The two of them chose to walk down the aisle together & said their vows under two huge trees at the back of The Herb Garden property...

Elopement in the Mountains

Elopement in the Mountains

When two people share a love for travel & adventure, life leads them to the most amazing places.  This elopement shows just that.  Choosing to say I do on a little mountain top terrace surrounded by nothing but nature while looking down upon the lights & glitz of Positano is not only a wedding adventure, but is also hopelessly romantic...

Beautiful Le Belvedere Wedding

Beautiful Le Belvedere Wedding

This wedding is one I will always hold dear to my heart.  From the first time I met Jamie & Noemie at their favourite little coffee spot The Happy Goat I knew they had that special kind of love that most people only dream of...

Marincanto Elopement

Marincanto Elopement

Love is a temporary madness, it erupts like
volcanoes and then subsides.  And when it subsides you have to make a
decision.  You have to work out whether your roots have so entwined
together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part.  Because
this is what love is.

This celebration was everything an elopement should be.  Exciting, emotional and above all else fun. These two laughed together and enjoyed every single moment of the day with each other...

True love waits...

True love waits...

This was maybe one of the sweetest weddings I have ever photographed.  We so often see love as young and new, two people falling quickly and deeply and then getting married.  But really how romantic is it to have true love wait, isn't it just so lovely that a couple who has been in love for 25 years, who has lived together and who knows every little thing about each other still be so totally enamoured that they decide to get married...in Italy.  That is vero amore...

La Dolce Vita...

La Dolce Vita...

This engagement session was a dream...These two gorgeous lovers were visiting Italy from Chicago and decided to have their engagement photos done in Positano, on the Amalfi Coast to have a tangible memory of this special trip & time in their lives...

A week a puglia...

A week a puglia...

Some time last year I came across the Ostuni Workshop in Puglia, put on by the very talented Italian wedding photographers Gianluca & Mary Adovasio and just knew I had to go.  I had been dying to see that part of Italy for some time and this was simply the perfect reason.  After a few months on the Amalfi Coast, the stars aligned and I was off to see this special part of Italy...
