Now that 2014 is over, I wanted to do a few “best of” posts. I’m going to make a few posts with my favorite images of 2014, from the wedding, portrait, and commercial “categories”. I will be including BTS anecdotes and some “how we shot it” notes. The first “best of” post is going to be about weddings. This year, Couvrette Studio had the pleasure of capturing many couples’ special days, and we got some stunning images along the way.
We’ll start with my favourite image from our first wedding of the year, way back in March. The bride and groom got ready and had their formal session at the Fairmont Chateau Laurier. Inside the picturesque building, the bride and groom were captured on an antique couch and atop the winding staircase. It was cold and grey outside, but the bride and groom filled the day with warmth and family.
The next wedding was a two-day NAC-Fairmont Chateau Laurier extravaganza in May. This wedding was a whole lot of fun, and the bride and groom made everyone feel very welcome with their friends and family by the end of two days. They did their ceremony on Friday, with an intimate dinner with family and close friends. And on Saturday they partied all night long and celebrated again. Spreading their celebrations over two days allowed the first night to be intimate and cozy, while the second evening was spent enjoying their nuptials without the stress of the day before.
Next on our best of list is a wedding that was shot in June. It was held at the Fairmont Chateau Montebello, right on the Ottawa River. The bride had butterflies for the end of the ceremony, and one of them landed right on the bride’s bouquet! And to top it off, she’d requested the use of one of the resort’s horses for a few shots with that. It made for some gorgeous pictures and the bride has some really fun memories to share!
The last wedding that I wanted to give a spotlight to on this post is the fall wedding that was shot at Cedarhill Golf Club. Even though I only posted this one a few weeks ago, it was shot back in October. It was a beautiful wedding, and the bride and groom shared a perfect day with their friends and family.
And those are our best wedding shots of 2014! Keep up with all of my newest posts by following my blog, or keep checking back for updates!
