Herb garden wedding


Ryan and Alex wanted their wedding day to be intentional and organic. Although they live in Ottawa, they had a special place in mind. An herb garden wedding at The Opinicon.  The Opinicon was recently renovated and oh my it did not disappoint. As an Ottawa wedding photographer who loves travel, I was more than happy for the nice drive. I love the carefree and bohemian vibe this place has with it’s beautiful herb garden. An herb garden wedding is about as earthy and romantic as it sounds.

They decided to have a first look as they wanted the be present and focus on each other. Ryan waited by the docks while his barefoot bride walked to him. They took the time to enjoy and get their wedding portraits done before the ceremony. The Bridal party’s colour scheme consisted of blues, greys and taupes. The bridesmaids had gorgeous bouquets made out of Dusty Miller, roses and Blue Thistle. The newlyweds mingled with their guests at cocktail hour. With a glass of their own home brewed beer they had made months before.

They also had time to thank and welcome each and every guests by having a receiving line before dinner. This left me speechless. Wedding days goes by so fast after all but the bride and groom made sure to make time for what counts. Ryan + Alex, during the time I got to know you, I have grown to love you and I have so much respect for you. Your wedding day was truly focused on your marriage. It was an honour to document this day.
