Amanda & Jason
The most easy-going fun-loving couple with incredible style, some modern Ottawa downtown wedding portraits and a stunning candle-lit reception. These are just a few of the things that made Amanda and Jason’s wedding one for the books (or at least, the blog?). Their wedding was absolutely full of beautiful details. From the custom leather jackets to the modern stationary, the stunning cake, the surprise fireworks and an energetic sparkler exit, it was so much fun to capture.
Ottawa Downtown Wedding Portraits with an Aquatopia Ceremony & Reception
Amanda and Jason did things a little differently from your average Aquatopia couple. They got ready at the modern and bright Andaz hotel (one of my favourite getting ready spots in case you are an Ottawa bride or groom who needs a suggestion for downtown!) and had a first look in Revel + Feast (in the Andaz lobby!). Which was definitely a relaxed and more comfortable choice to enjoy seeing one another for the first time for their late November wedding. They planned their wedding portraits to all take place downtown before heading to their Ceremony and Reception at the beautiful Aquatopia Conservatory. It made for the perfect contrast in their wedding photos. They had a great mix of modern city shots to go alongside the outdoor portraits we captured with the Greenhouse.
And their reception! Absolutely full of candles! Not only on the tables but also hanging overhead, which reflected off the greenhouse’s glass walls, and made for a wonderfully romantic dinner. And at the end of the evening, Jason surprised Amanda by pulling out his keyboard and singing for her. (In case it didn’t seem romantic enough!) And shortly after, Amanda turned around to surprise Jason with an incredible display of fireworks, which all the guests got to enjoy from the warmth of the greenhouse. Their evening was absolutely full of great speeches and wonderful moments.
From the moment I chatted with them about their wedding plans, I was so excited to capture this day. I could tell that these two and their friends love to have fun. And with the stunning day they planned, I knew Amanda and Jason’s wedding would be a great one. I hope that the love and joy from this day is evident in these photos and that you enjoy it as much as I did! Without further ado, Amanda and Jason’s wonderful wedding:
