Sylvie and Jeff met at work ten years ago.
One day Jeff called Sylvie a 'unicorn', referring to the book 'Hot Crazy Matrix – A Man’s Guide to Women' - a compliment that sparked something between them that turned into something more than work friends and they began dating. They both realized early on they wanted to spend the rest of their lives together. On their one year anniversary Jeff proposed to Sylvie while enjoying a dinner at Beckta’s in Ottawa. Along with the engagement ring, a gorgeous yellow diamond, came a Swarovski unicorn and a rose as they are both Bachelor fans!
They both love to be active: Jeff has a passion for tennis and fast cars; Sylvie’s passion being horseback riding on her horse Ben. They both enjoy travelling and Honeymooned in the City of Love...Paris!
Century Events is a fairly new Wedding and Events venue and the gorgeous flowers done by Riverwood Gardens paired with their lovely patio area made for a picturesque outdoor ceremony. We headed to Manotick (5 mins away) for after ceremony pictures, Watson's Mill and the park near it. I really loved the light during the ceremony, it was a cloudy day but not too dark...it was perfect.
This sweet couple got a gorgeous 10x10 album with white leather, a first for me and it suited perfectly.
