Wedding at the Horticulture Building in Ottawa: Ian and Lauren

It was a wedding like no other. So much thought and detail put into every part of the day and it totally paid off. This was my second wedding at the Horticulture Building in Ottawa and it was all kinds of epic. From the florals to the decor to the speeches and the overwhelming love and happiness, it was such a perfect day.

My day started off at the Chateau Laurier downtown where the girls were putting the finishing touches on hair and makeup.

Meanwhile, down the hall, the guys were getting dressed and ready along with Frannie, the most adorable dog everrrrr.

The bride and groom chose to do a first look at the Arboretum, along with their dog. The best.
