Mill Street Brewery Wedding with beautiful surprise cherry blossoms just outside the venue for the lovely Kailyn and Aaron’s perfect sunny day! Meeting these two felt like meeting our new besties from the beginning. We knew back in 2022 that these two we’re nothing short of amazing and wow did they deliver. The vibes we’re so high and good all day, they trusted everything, I mean everything we asked them to do. At one point during the ceremony I asked Luc to confirm just how smooth the day had gone so far because I was in awe.

Mill Street Brewery Wedding – our first time capturing at this spot

It’s hard to believe we’ve never captured a wedding at this venue before now. We have been lucky as we’ve shot many weddings around our beautiful city of Ottawa. However, I am not sure I was fully prepared for a Mill Street Brewery Wedding that had all these amazing spots for photos. Such a hidden gem. The cherry blossoms, just wow. I felt like a kid in a candy store especially once the sun started to set and we got the most epic shots. Definitely a place we’re excited to go back to!

Wedding Day Preparations on a Rooftop Patio before heading to Mill Street Brewery Wedding

Now, to be fair Kailyn and Aaron did mention that they had this epic space for getting ready. Again however, I wasn’t nearly prepared for just how amazing it was. Getting ready spots can either be amazing, or fall flat. We do what we can with whatever comes our way, but this space definitely won our hearts over. The views of parliament hill we’re the icing on the cake I didn’t even want but luckily got.

The first look was amazing. I love seeing the beautiful reactions and the private vows definitely got Aaron a little choked up but it was honestly just perfect. The flow of a wedding day is so powerful and wonderful to capture.

Getting ready in an Apartment Lobby for a Wedding Day – Yes!

If we get to a prep and there is a large group of people, a lobby is always a good idea. It’s usually filled with natural light, aesthetically pleasing fixtures, and room to capture some basic parts of the day. When I proposed this idea to Aaron of course he was down. Like how amazing is this? I’m obsessed.

Ceremony at St. Joseph’s Church downtown Ottawa

This was our first time capturing a ceremony in this church and again, impressed. So much room to move around and really had such a great amount of space for everything. I loved the architecture and just how neutral most things we’re. The decor they had with the orange and the red linens could go, but overall it didn’t take anything away from the ceremony. The priest was kind and easy to work with which was a huge bonus for us!

Wedding Party photos near Mill Street Brewery

Going to a new spot is really exciting as a wedding photographer and wedding videographer. Our creativeness really shines through whenever we get to a new space. The brewery had so many amazing spots just a short walk away. I was really impressed with the ruins, the blossoms, the monument area, and definitely the bridge became a favourite of mine really quick.

I could go on and on about everything but this day was nothing short of spectacular for all the reasons listed above. Kailyn and Aaron, it was such an honour to capture your day and we feel so lucky you chose us. We had the absolute best time and we know you did too! We have it recorded that we’re now besties!
