We’re completely smitten with Roslyn and Yves’ aisle perfect Ottawa wedding. The couple tied the knot at the Hilton Lac-Leamy in a fairy-tale affair that can only be summed up as PERFECT. Coordinated by In The Moment Event Planning & Design, this beautiful wedding featured romantic, tasteful elements like the soft blush bridesmaids, dapper black-tie groomsmen and an elegant ballroom reception. Prepare yourselves guys, this one is a memorable one! Special thanks to Samantha Clarke Photography and our friend and bride- Ros for sharing her amazing day with us.
From the photographer Samantha Clarke:
Ottawa is one stunning place to live and get married. It’s like a fairy-tale land in the summer with it’s lush greenery and stunning architecture. Roslyn and Yves are not just a gorgeous couple, but they’re genuine and lots of fun. They were flawless and absolutely laid back as their long awaited wedding day unfolded. The impeccable day began with more energy than I can describe. With that much love and joy, it was only natural that every detail was given lots of attention and really reflected Roslyn and Yves’ sense of simple and elegant style. Their nuptials will definitely be one that will be remembered and talked about by their family and friends for decades to come!

From the Bride: It took me a while to figure out what colors I wanted to work with (I think that’s pretty normal). After meeting with my decor team, they helped me to finally figure things out and I decided to go with blush with hints of gold and ivory, a refreshing combination for a summer wedding!!
Favorite Memory (from the bride): My most memorable moment was walking down the aisle towards mon beau. I knew that this was it, I was walking into my future with my lover and friend.
Advice for other brides: Make the best of every moment, it flies by! Try your absolute best to keep it together even if something unexpected happens and be mindful of your husband-to-be’s thoughts/ideas, after all it’s his wedding too!
