Fall wedding at Strathmere: Jen and Justin

It was a cold, fall wedding at Strathmere, but it was the perfect day in so many ways. Jen was radiating, and Justin was just simply so excited to marry his girl.

You may remember Jen and Justin’s engagement session from this summer. The two are expecting their first child this winter and you can just feel the excitement among all their friends and family.

I met the girls in the schoolhouse at Strathmere, just outside of Ottawa, while they finished getting beautified.

Before the ceremony, the bride and groom chose to do a first look just outside the schoolhouse. Jen was so excited to see her man…just adorable!

After their first look, we met up with the wedding party to start taking photos around this beautiful property. A fall wedding at Strathmere…doesn’t get much prettier than this!
