A Tale as Old as Time…Kelsey and Tavis’ Big Day! Ottawa Valley Wedding Photographer

This wedding was so enchanted! The bride and groom put a lot of thought into how their love would be presented. I can honestly say that after meeting with these two theatre students last year, I would not have expected any less from them. However, it was a true fairytale that unfolded in front of our lens’. The day started off with rain and while I shot the pre-wedding with the men in Eganville, Lisa was with the girls in Pembroke. Unfortunately the rain seemed to follow them everywhere. She was lucky enough to capture some amazing pre-wedding formals of the girls between downpours.

The ceremony was moving… to say the least. The bride and groom exchanged vows and then SANG “From this Moment” to one another in front of the very full church. It was the most passionate exchange of vows I have ever seen. The father of the bride and a very dear friend (and groomsmen) also sang throughout the ceremony. It wasn’t untill I looked back on the images while editing, that I realized how many people had tears in their eyes, and how many people were completely shocked by this grand expression of love. After the couple was announced as husband and wife, bagpipes lead the couple out of the church. This was a gift from Kelsey to Tavis and it was also very touching. The entire day was filled with so many gestures, too many to mention, that just showed how caring this couple is. They really are perfect for each other. The ceremony was followed with formal pictures near the Bonnechere caves in Eganville and at a very scenic property that belonged to a family friend of the bride.

And…just when we thought things couldn’t get any more amazing, the dinner and reception happened!!!!!!! WOW! Bagpipes lead in the couple and the dinner begin. Speeches were told and it was very apparent how much this couple meant to their family and friends. It was a clear view of how much they cared about others and how much they wanted to help in any way life would let them. As a wedding favor Kelsey and Tavis donated to Katie Bears- An organization that is built around putting a smile on people’s faces. The money raised by the couple went to fund a school in Jamaica. The organization was founded by Kelsey’s late friend Katie and it is so worth checking out. For more information on the charity please visit www.katiebears.ca

The decor….oh the decor. Every table was titled as the name of a play, the colours were of deep red and purple, the little accents were so theatrical and yet very elegant. The bride and groom gave a CD to all of their guests that had a collection of their favorite music and I must admit, I often listen to it while driving in my car. A friend of the couple had a separate “photobooth”set up and guests could get their pictures taken in costume. IT WAS SUCH A FUN WEDDING!

The first dances… oh the first dances. As the bride and groom did a fully choreographed dance to Greases famous “You’re the one that I want” and “A Tale as Old as Time”.  And as the entire wedding party started their dance the music stopped and everyone watched as “Thriller” was performed by this group. Truth be told, It felt like we were front row and center at a musical! HOW AMAZING.

We wish this couple the life of passion that they so deserve and the best future.

To Kelsey and Tavis: thanks for letting us be a part of your day. There was no acting needed to see the true love that was present. But the performances really helped highlight the essence of your love.
