Downtown Ottawa Andaz Hotel Wedding | Liz + Ryan

light airy indie fine art ottawa wedding photographer | Ali and Batoul Photography_0718.jpg

A minimalist, neutral design by Toast Events + a laid-back, vibrant, hilarious couple + an urban rooftop breezy summer day was the perfect concoction that was Liz and Ryan’s wedding day.  To top it off, Liz with the assistance of her sweet mom baked her own wedding pie to enjoy with Ryan later than evening as they danced the night away to Celine Dion classics at the Andaz Ottawa Byward Market hotel.  Liz and Ryan brought together the best wedding vendors in Ottawa: Katherine from Pollen Nation Floral Studio who infused all white elegance with a tropical edge to Liz’s florals.  Lori Dyck of Showpony executed a mid-height ponytail and somehow made it look both glamourous and effortless.  And of course, Klava Zykova brought that au naturelle aesthetic that elevated the entire look. Liz went for a vintage-inspired beaded BHLDN wedding dress that might as well belong in my own closet.             

When I first got into wedding photography, I didn’t realize that one of the many humbling outcomes of photographing weddings of wonderful people is that there is a high likelihood that they eventually become friends.  And that’s what happened with Liz + Ryan, way before their chic Andaz wedding even took place.  Texting Liz back and forth for months on end on hilarious, weird stuff not even wedding-related has been so much fun and I hope our awkward bantering continues for a long time to come!  #soulmates

 Thank you both SO MUCH for including us in your celebrations!  A night we’ll never forget.
