what a night. With the sky displaying thousands of stars, and the Milky Way’s galactic center in plain view, Karen and Dave took a short moment on a bench and let me take some pictures of them. I’m sure that being away from the party and the music for a few minutes while I forced them to sit in silence for 30 second intervals gave them time to reflect everything they had just gone through in just one day!
The wedding was held at the beautiful Strathmere country retreat. It has fantastic gardens and many great places for photographs! And photograph I did!
Something I love trying to figure out is how nervous everyone is before the ceremony. It’s normal to be a bit nervous, but I think the groom always seems more nervous for some reason. Maybe it has to do with standing him in front of everyone for 10 minutes with nothing to do but wait for the bride to walk down the isle! But Karen and Dave both seemed more excited than nervous, and I thought that was a really nice way to view your wedding day =)
After the ceremony and formals, the party can start, and the guests were nothing but spectacular! They had their own songs that they made up, and gave some fantastic speeches!
It was a fantastic day, with nothing but happy tears, lots of laughs and plenty of dancing, but I’ll always remember how everything aligned for Karen and Dave, under the starlit skies just outside of Ottawa, on that beautiful night.
