On Sunday September 23rd, Meaghan and Jessica said their ‘I dos’ in front of their family and close friends at the beautiful Strathmere on the outskirts of Ottawa. In case you missed it, you can catch up on Meaghan and Jessica’s love story on the blog post on their engagement session!
I had a great time photographing this intimate beautiful wedding; it was a relaxing and calm afternoon, full of love and laughter. Check out my favourite photos from Meaghan their beautiful wedding day!
As Meaghan walked down the aisle Jessica couldn't help but tear up. Seeing her beautiful bride for the first time, the moments they shared together up until this point crossed her mind and she knew this was the moment their two lives were to become one. She was about to marry her best friend and love of her life. She felt nothing but happiness. You could really feel the love and admiration between them.
Meaghan and Jessica didn’t have a bridal party to stand with them as they got married, they had something better, both their brothers stood by their side while they promised to love and care for one another for the rest of their lives.
When the two signed the papers that officially made them Wife and Wife, Jessica’s mom serenaded everyone with a song, and there wasn’t a dry eye in the house.
Since they didn’t have a bridal party we took the opportunity to take our time exploring the beautiful grounds of the Strathmere.
The two enjoyed their first dance under the stars and twinkly lights, it was a dreamy setting.
Meaghan and Jessica, I am so honoured that you choose me to be apart of your wedding day; it was a day full of family and love. Thank you for trusting me to photograph the start of your life together. I wish you nothing but happiness and adventures in your marriage for years to come.
