Colleen and Matt – Ottawa Winter Engagement

Ottawa winter engagement session in the snow during the winterlude festival.

A Winter Engagement in Ottawa | Kandid Weddings

Winter engagement sessions can be magical when couples decide to brave the cold for some unique images in Ottawa’s snowy wonderland. Colleen and Matt wanted to do their session before Colleen had to head off to Australia to start a new program and their timing could not be better. Winterlude had just started allowing us to ride sleighs and have maple taffy while capturing their fun and playful personalities. We started our day at the Snowflake Kingdom in Jacques Cartier park for some fun in the snow and made our way down to the Rink of Dreams with many stops along the way.

We had a fantastic time capturing Colleen and Matt’s love and warmth and are so excited to be shooting their wedding this summer. Enjoy!

Lynn & Brett – Stonefields Heritage Farm Rustic Wedding

Rustic Wedding at Stonefields | Kandid Weddings

We absolutely love rustic farm weddings and we have a great one to share. Lynn and Brett tied the knot in a beautiful rustic wedding at Stonefields Heritage Farm just outside Ottawa. We met them for the first time on their wedding day as they live in Vancouver and only came to Ottawa shortly before the wedding. However, as soon as we met, we knew we were going to have an amazing time with this lovely fun couple. The day was filled with so much love, laughter, and personal details. We simply love how Lynn incorporated so many sentimental items into their big day; her mom’s wedding veil, her grandmother’s 125-year old wedding ring, and a lot of DIY rustic decorations made by family members.

Thanks again Lynn and Brett for letting us capture your happiest moments forever! Also special thanks to an amazing team of vendors including the great staff at Stonefields, Modmop, Rev Marriage, Thyme and Again Catering, and Cakeland Creations, for bringing all this together. Enjoy!
