Intimate Ottawa Wedding – A wedding at homeMarch 30, 2011

I met Stephen and Kellie first at the Wedding Palace Bridal Show back in January. We had spoken only a few minutes and we had discovered that we were living in adjacent neighborhoods – we were practically neighbors.  They shared with me the vision they had for their wedding day – an intimate affair with their closest friends and family. For those family that could not be there, they were not too far away from the action and were there on the computer via skype (keep your eye out for the wee 

Chihuahua being skyped in-very cute). This is not unusual and I have had a number of weddings now that have “beamed” in family and friends via the Internet so not to miss the big day.

Stephen and Kelli have been building their home together slowly over the years and with it, their relationship has grown with them. They are both such a fun couple and compliment each other beautifully. Stephen has a great sense of humor – he’s like a big kid with an even bigger heart and Kelli is a rock and full of style, class and panache. Her lovely hat had been passed down in her family and the talented Madeline of Chapeaux de Madeline refurbished this beautiful hat to maintain it’s classic beauty with modern charm.

Lynne Langille of Exceptional Ceremonies Weddings presided over the intimate ceremony and truly did an amazing job in capturing the essence of Stephen and Kelli’s relationship, their story and the foundation of their new life together as life partners; only a few dry eyes in the house (literally in their home). Admittedly, I too might have had a leaky eye.

It was truly an honor to be a part of this lovely wedding, and to feel welcomed into their home amongst their wonderful family and friends. My warmest congratulations to you both Stephen and Kelli and I hope that you and the family had a wonderful time in the Dominican to celebrate!

Here is a peek at the at this warm, fun and spirited day!
