I can’t tell you how honoured I am to be able to share this wedding in particular. If you saw their engagement session, you know that I have known Amanda since I was at least 7 years old. Our families went to church together, this same very church that Amanda and Steve tied the knot* at this past Saturday. It couldn’t have been any other way. We were altar servers in this beautiful parish for years. I hadn’t seen her for a long while, she had left Ottawa to go to school in Thunder Bay. I had swooned at their relationship from afar; seeing online that Amanda had met this handsome military gentleman. I didn’t even have to meet him to have the gut feeling that he was the one.

I am usually quick to pick up on things, but when Amanda messaged me a photo of her and Steve holding a parking ticket, I was a little unsure. After her telling me to take a second look, I saw the ring. Steve had proposed in the spot where they had picnics, year after year. They came back to Ottawa every year as Steve was a trumpet player in the Ceremonial Guard, and on Nepean Point by Parliament Hill, Steve got down on one knee. We met, booked, and had their engagement session a short time later in order to fit everything in while they were still in Ottawa. Over the past year, Amanda has been planning this wedding meticulously from over 3,000 km away, while her hubby to be was on the other side of the country an additional 1,600 km further east than her.

Although anxious, because of the over planner that she is (I totally feel ya!! I’m that way too) the whole day went off without a hitch. How handsome does Steve look in his navy whites?! My cheeks hurt the whole night from smiling and laughing so much. Although they will be living way too far away from me, I blame Steve, I am so excited to see what comes next for these two. I look forward to see when Donegan babies come back to Ottawa. Congratulations lovebirds.
