The Private Estate Wedding that Brought their own ‘Church’ Ceremony Outdoors

Alison and Dan were married at a private estate wedding in Ottawa, Ontario!!

Imagine getting married on a property that you know like the back of your hand…Trails you’ve walked a million times, with views of the Gatineau Hills and tall grasses in the fields beyond. It was a walk she’d taken a hundred times before with her dad, but this walk was unlike any of the others: with her dad on one arm, they walked the long path up to the ceremony site where guests and her future husband awaited! It was a beautiful warm day, and the sun shone through the stained glass walkways that lead up to the top field. Flower girls and a handsome little ring bearer lead the way, along with Alison’s best friends in their mauve bridesmaid dresses. It felt like one big reunion to be back with these ladies again, after having met all of them at past weddings and other events. This was also my second time being a part of a wedding where Alison’s mum – Deirdre – helped design the themes and decor for the day, and I’m always so grateful for her attention to detail and amazing eye for design!!

And speaking of design…thank you so much to all the vendors who came together to decorate this private estate wedding! Big thanks to Bourbon and Bloom, who transformed this vast backyard into 4 distinct event spaces (like a halfway bar for refreshments leading up to the ceremony…an outdoor ceremony filled with old pews and church windows…a cocktail lounge with soft furnishings…and a reception tent with family style catering)!!  It was no small feat to decorate this sprawling estate but this wedding was brought to life by so much local talent like Pollen NationTopKnot HairstylingKlava ZykovaChalked by Mabz, and Wishtree Invitesjust to name a few!!

Ready for a glimpse into Alison and Dan’s private estate wedding? Super excited to be sharing this sneak peek for a couple I love so dearly!!

My favourite takeaway from this day was how much love and support was shown by everyone at this wedding. Part of that focus was a gift of ‘Forget-Me-Not’ flower seeds for guests and a donation in support of Dan’s mother and the Alzheimer’s Society of Canada. This sentiment of love was the most beautiful part of Alison and Dan’s wedding (which says a lot for this absolutely stunning day, wouldn’t you agree!!) and we feel truly lucky to have been there to celebrate with everyone last weekend!
