{Lianne & Stephane} Ottawa Wedding Photographer – Stanleys Olde Maple Lane Farm

We travelled to Greely, a short drive south of Ottawa, over the weekend to shoot Lianne and Stephane’s wedding at Stanley's Olde Maple Lane Farm. The location was stunning, the bride was gorgeous, and the groom...well, a little nervous! Lianne arrived to the ceremony site in an antique horse drawn carriage, and the collective gasp that went up from the guests confirmed how beautiful her entrance was. Their ceremony was held on stone steps so that every guest was treated to a great view of the bride and groom, and it involved many of the things they hold so important in their lives--laughter, love, family and friends. This was not your usual wedding and the couple wanted things to be centered around everyone having a good time - and a good time was had by all! They even got the party started by dancing on the grass outside the reception hall. ottawa wedding dress photo Bride's wedding shoes in ottawa

Lianne had the Ford Mustang logo engraved on the inside of Steph's beautiful ring, and both of their rings were made using diamonds from a family heirloom piece. groom driving wedding ceremony at stanleys maple farm Zack, Lianne's son, played a big part in the ceremony and had the very important job of delivering the rings. He took his responsibility pretty seriously and just about stole the show!

  We are incredibly thankful to be able to call Lianne and Stephane friends...they literally have known us from the beginning of our lives together, and it was both a pleasure and an honour to photograph their day. We had a fabulous time, and I think we're all looking pretty good for this shot taken in the wee hours of the morning... group
