Brittany and Ryan were married on a classic autumn (though rainy at times) day here in Ottawa. They had a lovely reveal at the eternal flame on Parliament Hill to the amusement of a bus-load of Asian tourists with whom I was directly competing for the title of ‘master of excessive camera gear’. The weather didn’t dampen spirits though – Brittany was one of the happiest looking brides I’ve ever seen, brimming ear-to-ear all day, despite being made to dive under an umbrella from time to time to avoid a cool downpour or letting the train of her dress serve as a leaf sweeper. Brittany, who also works for TOAST SPECIAL EVENTS, actually spent her engagement year making exactly one thousand paper birds which she strung over the guests’ seats at the ceremony at the MUSEUM OF NATURE. Thanks to both the bride and groom, their families, and my lovely girlfriend and assistant, Justyna, for making the day so smooth and enjoyable.
