Wedding Spotlight: Little J and Big I

“A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person.”- Germaine Greer

On Saturday, November 19th, 2011, we were privileged to witness a true fairytale come to life; our dear friends J and I tied the knot. What began as puppy love nearly 10 years earlier, the lovely bride and handsome groom had been dreaming about this day for a long time (and so had we!).

The Wedding Party

The picture perfect autumn day was the ideal backdrop for the elegant affair, where 250 guests gathered at the Fairmont Chateau Laurier in our nation’s capital for a beautiful wedding ceremony, where the blushing bride wowed in a one-of-a-kind Vera Wang gown, followed by cocktails and a superior soiree to be remembered.

Seating Chart
The ballroom was laced in warm tones of cream and gold, with trendy touches like a monogrammed dance floor. The fabulous Nancy Tremblay of Wedecor did not miss a single detail when it came to the regal décor of crystal candelabras accented with white roses and hydrangeas.

Thoughtful Favours (donations made in each guests' honour by the couple to their chosen charity)
The essence of the evening was fully captured by the talented Miv of Miv Photography, a local Ottawa photographer famous for making even the most modest of couples comfortable in front of the camera.

Delicious mini-cakes by The Girl With the Most Cake, as well as a larger gold, black and cream work-of-art (aka wedding cake), headlined the sweet table along with other delectable treats. 

The Wedding Cake
With wonderfully touching speeches by the the happy couple and unique events such as a bridesmaids versus groomsmen dance-off, J and I's memorable night was full of love, laughter...and a seriously awesome after party :) We know their first 4 months of marriage, complete with a Californian honeymoon in wine country, have been incredible, and we wish them only the best for the many years ahead.

The Happy Couple
Until next time,

A & S
