Kathryn and Stephen got married at Next in Stittsville on Canada day. I don’t know if you remember Canada day, but chances are you do, as it was Canada 150 celebrations. It rained SO much all day, and although there were pockets of sun, we they were during the ceremony and reception and were not able to go take photos outside. Nevertheless, Next is a gorgeous venue with many good indoor spots for portraits so we were able to capture their love during their first look and even made the most of their “sunset” portrait time to photograph their love in the pretty indoor spots that were filled with guests before the ceremony.
I would say that one of my favourite spot was the gorgeous spiral staircase underneath the grand chandelier and floor to ceiling bay window. I loved all the natural light that came in even if it was raining outside. I also love how the ceremony, reception and cocktail areas are separate allowing quiet space for the first look and giving me an opportunity to photograph the reception detail during the cocktail hour. I always recommend to my couples to have the cocktail hour in a different area and to not give guest access to the reception venue during that time allowing me to photograph every detail untouched.
