When you start to plan your wedding it can get overwhelming. Even the sheer list of things to do can leave you wanting to run for the hills. Where to start? How to put it together? Should we just elope? haha.
I know when I got married, I was asking myself these same questions. Thankfully, there are many talented people in Ottawa who you can go to and get all of these questions answered, and even taken care of for you!
Last week I had the opportunity to photograph the lovely Amy, who is a wedding planner and is the genius behind, Splendid Events. She is one talented lady with such attention to detail that you will be completely taken care of.
Amy loves her hubby, her two cats and is one of the warmest, bubbliest people I’ve ever met.
Be sure to notice Amy’s amazing fascinator, which is made by Flights of Fancy in Ottawa! It’s so wonderful to hear about such great talent in our beautiful city.
Have a wonderful day,
Saturday night I had the chance to not only attend, but interview the fantastic people behind Rouge. Rouge Ottawa the Ultimate Bachelorette Party happened on Saturday March 26th, 2011 at Mansion Nightclub.

ps. sorry for the awful quality of the video – it was too dark for my little ol flip camera. Yikes.
Vanessa from Vanessa Dewson Photography

Vu from Cloud in the Sky Studio
Cloud in the Sky Studio was at Rouge Ottawa taking (proper) video and helping to co-ordinate the event.
Unfortunately the video interview with Vu was compromised due to low lighting and my little ol flip camera just couldn’t cut it. Vu talked about how his team was at Rouge Ottawa as the paparazzi documenting the event as well as outlined some really interesting wedding packages they can provide to couples in the Ottawa area.
Because my video didn’t turn out, I want to feature one BY Cloud in the Sky Studios to show how awesomesauce they are.

Isobel from Bel Bridal
Isobel from Bel Bridal talked to us about what she thinks this year’s big jewellery trends are going to be.
Again, the lighting was just not cool for this video so I’ll sum up what Isobel and I talked about. I asked her what she though the trends for this year’s bridal jewellery would be and she said: GO BIG! Be bold and daring and have fun with it!
