Ottawa Wedding at Glebe Community Centre from AMBphoto

This wedding is vintage sweetness to the max!  I love the white crocheted tablecloths, tea party style dessert table, and the adorable biscotti filled guest gift bags. While the reception's accent color is pale yellow, so many gorgeous colors surrounded this couple on their wedding day. From the bright greens of the outdoors in their portraits to the dramatic, colorful tableau on the church's vaulted ceiling to the soft, light tones of their reception, this wedding is a rainbow of colors from start to finish. Check out the full gallery of photos right here to see for yourself, and many thanks to AMBphoto for sharing the love!

From the Bride... I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect wedding day. Our wedding totally exceeded my expectations thanks to the amazing vendors that we had the opportunity to work with. It truly was the best day of my life and I couldn’t have done it without them! It was very important to me to work with vendors that understood my love of all things vintage. After viewing AMBphoto's website, I knew I wanted to have Anne-Marie as our photographer. The way she captures couples, in the most intimate moments with the most incredible light, blew me away! After meeting with her, Steve and I were so excited! She shares the same passion for all things wedding as I do, and our mutual love of wedding blogs had us chatting for hours! Steve and I were so thankful that she was a part of our day. Not only are our photos absolutely stunning, but she also captured us and the feel of our wedding. We are so excited to have the photos to help us re-live that incredible day!

Sophie and Vanessa of Sparrow Floral Design completely blew me away with their incredible talent. They not only created the most gorgeous bouquets for me and my girls, but also set up all of the centerpieces and décor at the reception hall (the doilies, wooden crates and the clear centerpiece birds were all from their collection). When I walked into our reception hall, it was more than I could have ever imagined. Sophie and Vanessa are so fantastic and I was so over-the-moon in love with what they did for us! Our cakes were absolutely gorgeous and oh-so-yummy thanks to Sophie Bifield Cake Company! Sophie was just the sweetest (no pun intended!), and after meeting with her and discussing our vision, she offered us several lovely cake designs to choose from. We decided to go with a "collection of cakes," and Sophie decorated them to go perfectly with our theme. They looked incredible on our dessert buffet and were thoroughly enjoyed by our guests. We also had a great team of talented girls to help make us look pretty!!For our hair, we had Dana Storry from Pierino Scarfo Salon, as well as Kensey Young, and for our makeup we had Taylor Byers. The girls did a fantastic job, and our hair and makeup lasted the entire day and night (despite the VERY hot and humid weather!).

Our day would not have been possible without Sophia of My Events. Sophia was incredible. We hired her as our wedding day coordinator, and she was more then I could have asked for. She did the entire set-up and tear-down of our reception hall and kept the day running smoothly! It honestly felt like I was working with one of my best friends. With just a look, Sophia knew what I was thinking! She made it clear that her main focus was making sure our day was perfect and that was certainly achieved. I could tell that she truly cared for us and wanted to be there for us in any way she could. My family is still talking about Sophia and how amazing she was! We had our complete trust and confidence in all of our vendors, which allowed Steve and I to let go of everything and just focus on our wedding day, and for that, I will be forever grateful!
