We first met Val & Marc at the spring Wedding Show. Ivanette had a great long chat with them about their wedding plans for October 2010, and how they were looking for a photographer who thought outside the box. Yes, originally this happy couple was going to take their time to plan their wedding. However, about a month later they contacted us, stating that Marc was to be deployed with the military and they had to move their wedding up to this year. After many frantic phone calls, we finally found a date that worked for their venue, the Renfrew Golf Club, as well as ourselves. Val & Marc had a wonderful (but chilly) ceremony and reception that highlighted their personalities and the love they have for each other.
So a little background information on the first photo. I had seen it done about two years ago and have been waiting for the perfect couple to pull it off. Val & Marc are full of life and it seemed like a great fit! There is no doubt that Marc trusts his beautiful new wife!
Even Val’s cat, Abbie, had to make sure the details were purrfect!
Val and Marc decided to change things up, and shoot First Look photos at the clubhouse before the ceremony. It was such a relaxing time and Marc’s reaction to his bride in her gorgeous gown was priceless.
So, October weddings in the Ottawa Valley can either be beautifully warm or brutally cool…hence the adorable mittens!
Val’s sister, Alison, was her Maid of Honour, which included many hours of shopping, planning, and overall sisterly-ness in the months of planning.
