Orchard View Wedding & Tea Ceremony

Orchard View Wedding & Tea Ceremony for Lisa & Pat was a long awaited day but one filled with so much love and beauty! Capturing these two is easy as they are both sweet, kind, and really funny. We absolutely enjoyed the vows they both shared that were unique to them, making them even sweeter. Lisa & Pat had postponed from 2020 and decided that no matter what, in 2021 they would be married on the most auspicious day. Surrounded by their closest friends and family you couldn’t have asked for more exquisite weather for a wedding.

Tea Ceremony & Wedding Festivities

We’ve been lucky enough to do tea ceremonies in the past, however this one felt very special. Lisa’s dad became very emotional and it was beautiful to witness. Part of doing what we do as Ottawa Wedding Photographers & Videographers is capture these special moments. It’s for moments like this that gets us through the busy and crazy days. Capturing these important milestones for both families is the best part of being in the wedding industry. Witnessing this type of love and happiness is the best job in the world.

Ottawa Wedding & Traditional Tea Ceremony

Pat and Lisa’s Brother were friends and Lisa secretly had a crush on him. Little did they know that a fun night involving a little liquid courage would bring them closer. Building love through friendship makes everything else feel easy in a relationship. Watching Pat playing all the traditional Chinese door games, it was evident of his love of Lisa. Not only did he wear a bikini, so did all of his groomsmen. It’s fun catching all this in real time.

During this time, Pat’s parent’s also participated in Chinese Traditions by making the wedding bed and having the nieces and nephews jump on the bed collecting fruit.

Lisa & Pat – Meant to be

Many traditions are being honoured during this very auspicious day & hour. All the stars aligned and they were able to capture all they needed on this very special day. Planning the reception at a later day when they’re able to is when the large party will happen of up to 350 people! Surely it will be a very fun day as these two are so much fun to be around!

Love in a Pandemic, Love wins

Orchard View Wedding & Tea Ceremony with Lisa and Pat encountered a few changes, however in the end I think it all worked out. One thing for sure that this pandemic has taught us all is that love still thrives. This is the biggest test of love, patience, and perseverance. Without this we wouldn’t have seen any weddings, believe me. Wedding Planning in normal times can be very hard, however throw in restrictions and you’ve got chaos. Pat and Lisa made it through and we’re so happy they chose love.
