Planning a wedding at a venue that’s out a rural area and isn’t air conditioned can be a risk. But Ashley was willing to take it, and boy did it pay off! Ashley and Damian planned their beautiful reception at the historic Watson’s Mill in Manotick, Ontario. It’s a museum filled with history, mystery and the 1860′s stone building provided the perfect setting for Ashley and Damian’s theme. Ashley decorated the place with her DIY country decor and turned the museum into her dream ball.
The day couldn’t have been more perfect in terms of weather. A very mild warm summer’s day with a breeze kept everyone cool and happy! The wedding took place in the Blessed Sacrament Parish in Ottawa and then we all took a bus out to Manotick where we pit stopped to take photos along the way. It’s quite rare for us to make a stop at the Mill St. Brew Pub for a beer and snacks with the bridal party…but no one’s complaining! Damian and his family being Polish only added to the fun for us as we got a chance to mingle with his family all day!
Ashley, thank you so much for making us first on your mind right after getting engaged to Damian! Hearing things like that just warms our hearts and pushes us to be even better artists. And finally, we wish you both the absolute best that life has to offer and thank you for having us there to capture the day.
Here are our favourite images from the day and of course, be sure to watch the slideshow as well!
