Ashley & Chuma’s Ottawa Art Gallery wedding was a true celebration!! There was music and dancing and laughter and good vibes right from the very beginning of the day. Ashley and her wedding party got ready at the Le Germain Hotel, while Chuma and his wedding party got ready at a nearby apartment. The atmosphere was lighthearted and fun while getting ready, and then we were off to St. Patrick’s Basilica for a really beautiful ceremony.
Afterwards, the wedding party took some time for photos. It was a gorgeous sunny day, and we took our time, enjoyed the sunshine and the company before heading over to the Ottawa Art Gallery for the reception!
The wedding decor in the space at the Ottawa Art Gallery was jaw dropping. The sweetheart table with the draping and the florals, not to mention the hanging floral installment over the dance floor, it was all stunning.
Ashley & Chuma’s families made their entrances to music and dancing, followed by the wedding party. And then Ashley & Chuma made their grand entrances. They told me ahead of time that this was going to be a big moment, and they weren’t kidding. The energy was amazing and so contagious. Dancing and cheering and throwing money – what a way to kick off the evening.
Sneaking out for sunset photos worked out perfectly. The backdrop of the Ottawa cityscape from the balcony is just *chef’s kiss*. And can we take a moment to acknowledge Ashley’s dress !!!!!! Wow, wow, wow. Absolutely breathtaking. It was *made* for Ashley and it honestly took my breath away. Absolutely gorgeous.
Ashley & Chuma’s wedding was just so classic and elegant and a ton of fun. So much fun!! What a blast this was. Thank you for having me.
