An Enchanting Vineyard Wedding Outside Ottawa

Kelsey and Kyle met at their workplace in Manchester, England, quickly sparking a romance. "It was all magic from there on," Kelsey recalls. "I brought myself home a souvenir from England!"

While moving into their new apartment in Ottawa, Kyle asked Kelsey to search for an item in another room. Meanwhile, Kyle swiftly attached a sparkling ring to their dog's collar. "When our dog sat for a treat, I saw the ring and cried from excitement—I was so shocked!" Kelsey shares.

For their wedding, Kelsey and Kyle wanted to accentuate the beauty of their vineyard venue. They selected a bold palette of crimson and navy to contrast the grapevines and to represent their outgoing personalities. To tie the indoor reception to the outdoor ceremony, the rustic interior was decorated with lush greenery, bright red bouquets, candles, and globe lights.

Although it rained during their vows, Kelsey and Kyle didn't let the weather dampen their big day. "Our ceremony was set outdoors, amongst the vines, covered only just from the rain and thunder surrounding us. It was utterly amazing!" Kelsey exclaims. "My dress may have been soaked, but it was worth every minute." Shortly after the couple said "I do," the rain stopped and a rainbow appeared—creating the most perfect happily-ever-after moment.

Later that evening, lighting happened to strike the reception venue and a generator was used to supply power. Occasional blackouts interrupted speeches from friends and family, but this was when guests got creative. "Our family created a kissing game – every time the lights went out, our guests cheered and clinked their glasses for us to kiss," Kelsey mentions. "Nevertheless, we made the most of it."
