Béatrice + Brendan ~ The Knot Is Tied!

October 4, 2019

This would be my third time trav­el­ling to Ottawa to shoot a wed­ding and I was stoked! I love the vibe of Ottawa. With its Eng­lish-French bilin­gual­ism, and the water run­ning in and around the city, it makes me feel like I’m in an offi­cial Cana­di­an city. I’m so grate­ful to that Béa­trice and Bren­dan had cho­sen me to cap­ture their sacra­men­tal day.

Bren­dan had seen me in action at Joan­na & Lui­gi’s wed­ding. Upon fur­ther inquiry with Béa­trice through a won­der­ful video con­fer­ence, we were all set for the date! As part of their love-sto­ry went, they were to be mar­ried at the place where it all start­ed: the Notre Dame cathe­dral. This is where Béa­trice had sung both as a soloist and choir mem­ber, while Bren­dan, a devout parish­ioner was cap­ti­vat­ed by this lark from his pew. And what a priv­i­lege to have Bish­op Chris­t­ian Ries­beck offi­ci­ate the wed­ding!

They had orga­nized for an inti­mate and mem­o­rable “first-look” just near the Nation­al Gallery of Cana­da. The stage was beau­ti­ful­ly set, as there were vine-cov­ered stairs and I watched as the beau­ti­ful bride took her time to see her groom. It was a jubi­lant reac­tion as Bren­dan turned around to see Béa­trice, all ready in her wed­ding dress. This set the mood for the rest of the day.

Both fam­i­lies were so wel­com­ing, I felt like I was a guest at the recep­tion at the Fair­mont Cháteau Lau­ri­er. After enter­tain­ing speech­es, a scrump­tious meal, the dance floor was non-stop action, even by the time I left.

I’m so grate­ful and blessed to have been giv­en the oppor­tu­ni­ty to cap­ture this wed­ding day for two faith-dri­ven souls des­tined for eter­ni­ty. Mer­ci-thank you, Béa­trice and Bren­dan! In JMJ.

Hope you enjoy these high­lights of the day!
