I’ll never forget the golden glow of the sun that set over Meagan and Joe’s Venue Twenty Two wedding!! If you’ve ever been up to the twenty-second floor of the Westin Hotel, you’ll know firsthand how that view of downtown Ottawa can take your breath away!!…but nothing beats watching the sun set over the Gatineau Hills from 22 stories up! Parliament on one side, the Ottawa river on the other, and all the people and cars below looking teeny tiny! It’s no wonder this Ottawa wedding venue stole Meagan and Joey’s heart from the moment they toured the hotel!
And there’s also that cool feeling when you’re up in Venue 22: the views make you feel like you’re in the heart of the city and connected to everything downtown; while the height of the hotel separates you from it all to create that intimate atmosphere that’s perfect for a wedding! It truly is one of the most breathtaking venues in Ottawa!! And speaking of breathtaking…can we talk about the bride?!! I’ll never forget the way the light shone through Meagan’s long cathedral veil as she walked down the aisle with her dad…and Joey’s reaction as he saw his beautiful bride for the first time at their Billings Estate wedding ceremony! It’s not very often couples choose to do a ‘traditional aisle walk’ anymore (the first look is becoming more and more common!!) but the suspense of that choice was so beautiful and I feel so grateful to have been a witness to their once-in-a-lifetime moment!!
Meagan!! Joey!! Thank you for inviting us to document your Venue 22 wedding in Ottawa!! I knew you were sweet people from the first time we met, but that was just a glimpse into the lovely and genuine people that you are!! Your family and friends gave some of the nicest (and also funniest!!!) speeches we’ve ever heard at a wedding and it really goes to show how loved and appreciated you are to everyone who knows you! Keep on being the smiling, goofy, and happy people that you are!! We feel so grateful to have documented the wedding of two such loveable people! And we hope you love this sneak peek into your wedding gallery!!
Thank you and much love!!
