This winter wedding was simply incredible. I was brought into the plans of Val and Norm for the wedding only a few weeks out from their wedding day after they had to make some changes to their original plans following a tragedy in their family. Their day was full of all kinds of emotion, but the joy and excitement of the day was palpable. With the lively beat of a drummer, I have never seen so many people dance for as long as they did at Val & Norm’s reception. It was a true party.
Val designed her own wedding dress and other accessories- and did a fantastic job, I should add! The care a perfection that went into so many of the elements of this day was amazing. The ceremony was at the spectacular Notre Dame Basilica, sandwiched on either side by some photos in Gatineau Park and followed by the reception at Sala Gatineau.
Here is a glimpse into their special day.
