By the Water ~ Kate & Chris’ Wedding

Kate & Chris Wedding photographed in Ottawa by Liz Bradley of elizabeth&jane photography

Which one moment will last for each of you forever?
Bride: When Chris had tears seeing me walk down the aisle and again during our vows.
Groom: When I first saw Kate and how beautiful she was. The rush of emotions I felt took me by surprise and caused tears of joy.

Best advice for future bride/grooms?
Don’t stress about any of the small stuff the few days leading up to the wedding because everything will be as it will be regardless of if you stress about it or not.

Best wedding related decision?
Only spend your energy and time on the things that matter to you the most. For us it was food, drink and a good party. The rest we let family who wanted to be involved do the coordinating!!

What was the funniest memory from your wedding day?
Chris: Being told to have Kleenex bc he was going to cry, him saying, “I won’t cry..” And then me crying and needing Kleenex!
Kate: My family members speeches. They were such raw truth and some of them were pretty funny memories!

What is your favourite image from your wedding day and why?
The pic of the wedding party (minus flower girl and ring bearer) along the fence with us holding our beers. Beer is a huge part of our lives and it wouldn’t feel right not celebrating right away with some beer and people we love.
