So many special moments stood out from Thea and Kellan’s wedding that took place this past weekend at Social in the heart of Ottawa’s downtown core. The overall elegant, laid-back and exciting vibe of their wedding is one that can’t be forgotten. A big shout out to Erica Irwin Weddings and Events who helped everything run so smoothly. Kellan’s heart-felt speech directed to his parents and their wonderful example of a strong, beautiful marriage. The long flowy black bridesmaids dresses that her besties wore. Thea wore her grandmother’s gorgeous vintage ring - such a show stopper. The words used by family and friends to describe Thea: Brilliant. Down-to-earth. Joyful. The wedding cake that was baked by Kellan’s mom.
They went on their first date ten years ago during the wonderful days of high school. The date was on the local bus, the OC Transpo, where they slowly but surely began falling in love. Today, after ten beautiful years together, they stood hand-in-hand professing their commitment and love for one another in front of their family and closest friends.
As Alina put on the final touches to her makeup, the scattered rain showers we were worried about suddenly stopped. Our backup umbrellas would not be needed today! Both Alina and Mahmood were getting over a cold after a week’s worth of hard earned family celebrations leading up to their wedding day. They’ve been engaged for over two years, living a long-distance relationship, and were both so happy that their special day was finally upon them.
