Matt + Joelle / Aylmer Wedding / Hotel Le British

I knew deep down that Joelle and Matt's wedding was going to be one I wouldn't miss when I decided to come back to Ottawa from my European backpacking adventure on a Friday, and then fly back to London the following Monday. To this day, I don't regret it for a moment! 

Joelle and Matt have something extra special in their eyes when they look at each other. They have that untouchable, untainted fairytale kind of sparkle going on. Having met in high school their love has stood strong through the good times and through hardships. I just know these two will stand the test of time.

The weather was perfect on this Labour Day Sunday, as the sun was bright and the air still warm from summer. Hotel Le British made for a beautiful backdrop, and everything felt simple and effortless at a single location.

There was no shortage of smiles and tears at the sunny outdoor ceremony, and it wasn't long before Joelle and Matt were off for the portraits in the nearby area in their fancy ride! 

If there is something special about the Pelletier Family - it's that they know how to throw a great party! Joelle's sister Alli performed La Vie en Rose along with a few others to really get things kick started on the dance floor. As a photographer, there isn't anything more exciting to photograph than newlyweds having an amazing time, making incredible new memories with lifelong friends and family. Congrats Joelle & Matt!!
