Chateau Laurier Wedding in Downtown Ottawa

Bride and groom Chateau Laurier Wedding

This Chateau Laurier Wedding in Downtown Ottawa was such a dream to be a part of! The weather was warm – without being too hot, and the sun was shining that perfect glow that we all crave for wedding days! It truly felt like the first weekend of Summer, after all the rain and cooler temperatures we’ve been experiencing this Spring! And in fact, it seemed that the whole of Ottawa was downtown, soaking in the Summer-like weather! As we toured through Major’s Hill park for wedding party portraits, people cheered and congratulated Erika and Jon, who had just exchanged their vows in the Canadian Room of the Chateau Laurier!

It was a wedding ceremony full of some of my favourite Ottawa vendors, like Kimberley Dunn on piano, florals by Rebel Petal, and Lynne Languille as their officiant! Guests couldn’t help but laugh along with the couple as Erika and Jon recited some personal (and quirky!!) promises to each other and Lynne recounted the story of how these two first met and fell in love! I think it was this extra attention to detail, along with the duet sung by the bride’s sister – Justine  (and Kim on piano) that made the ceremony feel so lighthearted and personal.

The rest of the day was just as relaxed and wonderful, due in large part to Erika’s planning and the wonderful team at The Paper Bride. We loved being a part of this wedding and are so grateful to everyone who helped make Erika and Jonathan’s day so special!! Enjoy this sneak peek from their classic-meets-boho Chateau Laurier Wedding!
