I first met Chelsea and her amazing family at her brother’s wedding back in the fall of 2009. Ivy didn’t have the chance to join me as she was in Vancouver preparing to work at the Olympics the following year. I can tell you however that she was jealous of not being able to photograph all of the amazing details! When Chelsea messaged me on facebook to let us know that Scott had proposed, and she wanted us to photograph their wedding, we were both excited! Turns out Scott’s family is just as nice and caring! From the details that Chelsea chose, the Champagne Highland Dancers acting as ushers, and then having three performances during the reception, and the absolute abundance of emotion throughout the day. The most memorable moment to me was Chelsea’s reaction as Scott stepped out to reveal he was wearing a kilt. Chelsea’s Scottish roots are important to herself and her family. Scott’s effort into bringing in a kilt bearing her family’s Tartan was a sign of just how much he loves Chelsea!
Ivanette and I photographed Stephanie & Freddie’s engagement session downtown this past Sunday, and what a fitting couple to book on Mother’s day! Stephanie and Freddie met 9 years ago at the University of Ottawa, and have since graduated, started great careers, and have had 3 very cool children (who came with them to interview us as their wedding photographers). When chatting, they told us all about how they first met at the University frosh week. Thus, Tabaret Hall (along with the rest of the campus) was the only choice to celebrate their engagement!
