Jen and Jon

Jen and Jon are two of the sweetest people that I have had the pleasure of meeting.  Jen is a classic beauty with a large infectious smile, and Jon is a poet, an author and a romantic. They chose to celebrate their union at Eighteen Restaurant in Ottawa. If you’ve never been, it is a beautiful and classy stone walled building with large windows that let in the most beautiful pockets of light. The menu is sophisticated, and the décor is contemporary with Art Deco influences.

Jen and Jon chose to have their first look at the Arboretum in Ottawa, in the moments leading up to the big reveal, Jon’s excitement and nerves grew. The actual reveal was beautiful, emotional and I count myself lucky to have witnessed it.

Surrounded by their closest family and friends, Jen and Jon made their promises to each other through poetic, heartfelt vows. There was a rose ceremony to honour their mothers and every detail was thoughtful. Jen and Jon went the extra mile to honour their friends and family by including personalized messages to their guests at each place setting.

Jen and Jon were two of the most humble and thankful people, and I could not be happier that they chose me to capture their special day.
