One of the things that made our wedding day great was my good friend Dawn. She and I first met in high school, became fast friends, and have stayed in touch ever since. We celebrate birthdays together, go for dinner, hang out with family, and look forward to the Festivus party at her place every year. So I was honoured to have her take some amazing photos for us on our wedding day. Dawn was fantastic – she checked out locations downtown the weekend before, was calm on the day, took tons of posed shots, and then popped champagne with us in the limo – she is one of the kindest people I know, and is also a ton of fun.
So here are some of my favourite shots from our little photo session between the sunny ceremony in Tyler’s parents backyard, and the rocking reception at Fat Tuesdays in the market.
We first posed with a few friendly statues near the Ottawa War Memorial, then crossed the street and went under the road and back up towards the Ottawa Locks. I love the shape of the bridge in the background, as well as our iconic Parliament buildings, and the Art Gallery (another of my favourite Ottawa buildings!)

And yes – my cute little bridesmaids and I thought it would be funny to do a planking photo (even before I saw this season’s premier of The Office!) Aren’t they are good sports?
