Ivanette and I had the pleasure of meeting with Kristen & Jason last September and chatted about their very unique wedding. If you’re a regular follower of the blog, you’ll know that we like to keep things interesting by photographing unique, yet personalized weddings. It’s not always about who can get the most lavish venue, the most expensive shoes, or a couture gown. The best weddings are full of emotion, fun, and personal touches. Kristen and Jason decided early on to go for a Carnival theme for their wedding. The ceremony was held at the historic Mayfair Theater in the Glebe, with a reception at the Glebe Community Center. For their formal photos we decided that one of Ottawa’s legal graffiti walls would fit perfectly.
We thoroughly enjoyed Kristen & Jason’s wedding, which was indeed full of emotion and personal touches. From the historic popcorn and soda containers provided to guests as they watched the ceremony, the popcorn bowls with hydrangeas, the cotton candy machine as part of dessert table. Everything came together perfectly. Ivanette’s favorite detail was Kristen’s bouquet, which was put together using a collection of antique broaches that the wedding party teamed up to find and assemble!
A big thanks also goes out to Liz Bradley, who covered the groom’s prep, assisted with the ceremony and shot all the great details at the reception. Liz could also be seen dancing away over at the photobooth having a blast!
