{Chantal & Simon} A firefighter’s wedding at Lago Bar Grill View

I’ve known Simon for a while, we were in the same class at Algonquin college for fire fighting, and have kept in touch ever since. Simon has been a volunteer in Dunrobin (Ottawa) for a couple years longer than I’ve been on with Mississippi Mills. When Simon sent me a note to say he was engaged, and wanted Ivanette and I to photograph their wedding, it was an honour, and privilege. Chantal is one patient woman, and I learnt that after the first time we got together to chat about their wedding, and conversation strayed into chatting about the two departments. I photographed their engagement session at the Dunrobin Hall to include the trucks. Well, turns out Ottawa Fire had a call right beside Lago while we were doing their portraits, so with the Captain’s permission, we took a couple photos while they dealt with a minor call. Simon and I had already planned out having him wear one of his department shirts under his tux. It was a great wedding, and an even better party!
