Kathleen and Dan were originally supposed to get married in May at the Museum of Science and Technology, but because of Covid and the restrictions due to the pandemic, they postponed their wedding to September. As September got closer, they realized that having the big wedding as planned wasn’t going to happen so they rescheduled once again and landed on a backyard wedding at the groom’s family home in Manotick.
My day started out at the bride’s family home in Westboro where Kathleen and her bridal party were getting ready.
I love working with my girl Lyz Plant – she is an amazing makeup artist and always knocks it out of the park.
Don’t ask me why, but the stack of Nancy Drew novels on the bookshelf just needed to be included in this collection of wedding photos.
Kathleen, you are the most stunning bride!
We made our way to Patterson’s Creek by the canal for the first look and photos of the wedding party and family.
The groom and groomsmen were looking sharp in their navy suits and bowties.
Dan’s reaction was the best. Shock, tears, smiles…the greatest first look.
I met Kathleen last summer at this beautiful blonde Ashley’s cottage wedding. Kathleen was one of Ashley’s bridesmaids so it was so special to have two of my brides together in one photo!
The groom’s mother used to be a florist…she did such an amazing job on the flowers!
The plan was always for this bride and groom to get married in a church. Guests trickled in with their masks on and the ceremony was set and ready to go.
Following the ceremony, guests make their way to the groom’s family home in Manotick where the reception took place. This property was stunning. They did such an amazing job of getting it set and ready.
Dominion City beers at a wedding is my dream.
Tulips and Maple catered the wedding – the food was unreal.
Congratulations to this beautiful bride and groom on the best covid wedding ever!
