A Romantic Spring Wedding Outside Ottawa

A Romantic, Elegant Spring Wedding in Ottawa - Bride and Groom

Chris proposed to Megha after surprising Megha with a series of clues leading her to some of their favourite spots in the city. This included where they first met and where they had their first date. “The final clue was, ‘one of my favourite memories was watching the fireworks here, let’s go make some more memories,'” Megha recalls. Megha headed toward the back of the National Gallery of Canada and found Chris. “I was walking toward him in tears of excitement and happiness,” she explains. “As soon as I reached him, he got down on one knee and proposed. It was perfect.”

The couple chose a colour palette of rose gold, gold and navy blue for their spring wedding. On the morning of their big day, the weather was not cooperating. “I remember standing there before our first look, and it was cold, rainy and really windy, but all I could think about was the fact that I was going to marry the love of my life,” Chris says. Megha agrees. “The first time I saw Chris in his prince charming outfit is something I’ll cherish for the rest of my life,” she says.

After a delicious dinner, the couple danced the night away with their friends and family, one of the most memorable moments of the evening. “DJ Paul from Jannat Productionz was amazing. He catered to different genres and cultures perfectly–the dance floor was always packed,” Megha says. “The party went on all night!”
