I love the story of how Adam proposed! Adam proposed on the beach at sunrise in Punta Cana! I love a romantic proposal story especially since Adam had to get (or drag) Catherine out of bed in the wee hours to catch the sunrise! Catherine said she was bugging Adam to go back to bed when he summoned up the courage to pop the question. (If you don’t already know the sunrises in Punta Cana are stunning!  My husband and I did our Rock the dress session at sunrise in Punta Cana and loved every second of it!) Adam and Catherine planned their wedding based on Adam’s military leave and had a beautiful wedding here in Ottawa at Orchard View! The way these two look at each other melts my heart! Congratulations Catherine and Adam! I know many happy years are in your future!



I love it when a bride adds colour especially a colour like orange!

Boys will be boys…this group made me laugh all day!

Who doesn’t love a man in uniform?



These girls looked beautiful in Orange!

I loved Catherine’s Veil and hair accessory! 









The look of love….
