{Pamela & Sherman} A family wedding

Ivanette met Pamela and Sherman at the Ottawa wedding show this January. As luck would have it, as they were passing by, an image from Stephanie & Frederic’s wedding we photographed last fall popped onto the screen. Turns out they were also planning their wedding at the NDHQ WO’S & Sgts’ Mess Hall here in Ottawa. It’s an absolutely gorgeous hall, and the food is to die for! After chatting with with Ivanette, and going through some of our work, they decided that having a professional photographer might be something they wanted after all. We met with them a few weeks later, and have been looking forward to their wedding! They are full of emotion and are absolutely hilarious! As favours, Pamela & Sherman personally handed out support our troops pins to each guest. Their focus was on family, so we set up a photobooth and Ivanette took gorgeous portraits of all their guests while I was outside capturing their formal photos. It was a great day!

{Stephanie & Frederic} A military wedding in downtown Ottawa

When Ivanette and I met with Stephanie, Freddie and their 3 wonderful children, we had the opportunity to spend some time with them and get to know the story of their 10 years together! After meeting at the Ottawa University frosh week, it was love at first sight. 10 years later, Stephanie and Freddie planned their wedding for the anniversary of their first chance meeting, and wanted to incorporate the University of Ottawa into their wedding. We had previously photographed their engagement session at the University. Since frosh week was on going, the chapel at Tabaret Hall was unavailable, so the University offed a great room overlooking the city at the top of the Desmarais building. The view was great, and the building’s name is also their family name. Frederic is an active member of our Canadian Military, and decided to wear his military dress, along with have his grooms men in full dress.
