Jennifer and Joe | Stonebridge Golf club | wedding photographer ottawa


I have not blogged in a long time because, short story; I broke my website.  Yes, I loaded my images up thinking I had sized them properly and it all just came tumbling down.  All fixed now and the blog is working again...hooray!

.....and I REALLY have to blog this beautiful DIY wedding of Jennifer and Joe!

Jennifer and Joe met at Stonebridge Golf Club.  He interviewed Jennifer for a job one day and in the months to follow, Jennifer was conducting her own interview, unbeknownst to him, for the role of future husband...this is one of those love stories where she just knew he was the one!

3 ½ years later Joe proposed during their cottage vacation on Lake Huron.  It had been a rainy, buggy day he got down on one knee in front a failing tiny campfire and asked Jennifer to marry him.

 DIY to a whole other level!  Jennifer did EVERYTHING!

From the chalk painted Mason jar and wood-slab centrepieces to the tiny appetizers and hand maid paper flowers, all the little details were made with love by Jennifer and enlisted her mum and friends to assist her. 

She even made their wedding cake and helped design her dress!

Joe is the golf pro and general manager at Stonebridge Golf Club, and Jennifer, no longer at Stonebridge, is a child and youth worker.
