I met these two at the Ottawa Wedding Show where we had a great conversation (amongst the craziness) and I was so happy to be chosen to photograph their wedding. We met again, this time with their two little Ghostbuster-loving kids, in order to do some engagement and family photos. It was a relaxed and fun day, I knew their wedding would be the same.

Top five favourite things about this wedding:
1.) Kristi wore green Birkenstock sandals with her gorgeous, lace white wedding gown. She received some harmless flack, but in the end, this footwear choice could not have been more true to her.
2.) The kids’ dance. After the traditional first dance, and father/daughter dances, Kristi and Eric organized a surprise dance for their amazing kids to the Ghostbusters theme song. Their son and daughter were so excited and surprised, they danced their little butts with giant smiles across their faces.
3.) The rides. The groomsmen arrived in a minivan. The bridesmaids arrived in a vintage convertible. Enough said!
4.) Kristi and Eric had their kids “sign” their marriage certificate in addition to their witnesses. I’ve been sitting here trying to think of a more precise adjective than “cute” but I can’t quite seem to find one suitable. Cute!
5.) The foursome that is this family: such a solid crew, so clearly in love, all I had to do was try my best to capture that.
