Amber + Paul || Married!

Amber and Paul are quite literally the perfect couple. Amber is a nurse, and Paul is a firefighter—believe me now?! After shooting their darling fire station engagement session last fall, I was so excited to meet up with them again at their wedding and photograph their big day! And what made the day even better was that there were two other Chelsea Mason Photography brides at the wedding; I always love the chance to see current and past clients whenever I can! 

 The couple prepped at home, and it was so fun to photograph lots of beautiful details and candid moments with the wedding party! The bride spent the morning with her bridesmaids and mimosas, and her sweet bridal details perfectly showed off the wedding color scheme of black, blush, and ivory. I loved the bridesmaids’ darling floral robes, and the personalized mimosa glasses are such a unique touch! 

Paul and Amber’s first look at the arboretum was one I’ll always remember; Paul was so emotional when he saw Amber in her dress for the first time, which was so special to witness (and made for the best photos!). And their Lago Bar and Grill wedding and reception made this Ottawa wedding photographer’s heart so happy! The event was filled with classic and elegant black, ivory, and blush décor, including gorgeous florals, lots of personal photos, and gifts for all of the guests. Amber looked stunning in her Stella York dress, which was paired perfectly with Paul’s timeless tuxedo and her bridesmaids’ black lace dresses.

Their wedding portraits are some of my favorites, and their reception photos perfectly show off every element of the night—from the happy tears to the killer dance moves! I am so grateful that I had the chance to be part of their wedding day. Congratulations, you two!
