Cakes/Candies Vendor:

Kakes by Judy

Ottawa, Ontario, Canada

"Judy did an excellent job on our wedding cake. My husband and I don't have a car, and Judy was nice enough to come by our apartment after she was done setting up for another wedding nearby. We weren't sure what we wanted, and needed to compromise, but Judy guided us and gave us a beautiful and delicious cake. Very reasonably priced, and will set up at the venue. She also provided a cake box so we could save the top layer."

Florist:

Bloomfield's

101 Fourth Avenue
Ottawa, ON, Canada
+1 613-230-6434

"Bloomfield's did an amazing job on my bouquet and our centrepieces. I did not want a round bouquet that is so popular now, and Virginia and her staff did an excellent job on my cascading bouquet. The centrepieces were lovely. They are a delight to work with."

Invitations Vendor:

The Papery

850 Bank St
Ottawa, ON K1S 3W1, Canada
+1 613-230-1313

"The Papery is a lovely stationary and card shop in the Glebe. They have 3 huge books of wedding invitation templates to choose from. The printer is in Stratford, so you once the final proof is approved, you will have your invitations by the next week. Call ahead of time because you may have to make an appointment."

Invitations Vendor:

Shutterfly

Carolina Beach, NC, USA

"Shutterfly allows you to custom make any paper product, including thank you notes, invitations, photo albums, etc. They are based out of the US, so shipping can take a week or two and adds some cost, but the end results are worth it. I used them for my wedding thank you notes, and have made several photo albums in the past."

Videographer:

B & M Video

1297 Perez Cresent
Ottawa, ON, Canada

"Mike from B & M did a great job on our wedding video. He was very nice to deal with via email before the wedding and on the day-of. Other than capturing the event, my favourite part of the video is the little interviews with our family and friends. He did a great job on the editing, and the short 3-minute video is great to show to friends and colleagues. The quality of the sound and image is excellent. Very reasonably priced, and a few options for how much you want filmed."

Wedding Fashion Vendor:

Saratina Bridal Boutique

422 Speers Rd
Oakville, ON L6K 2G2, Canada

"Saratina's was a wonderful experience. I was getting exasperated with my dress search after trying on 40+ dresses at dozens of stores. Saratina has a great selection, but not overwhelming for very reasonable prices. I wanted a silk gown, and I found one for under $1000. Their seamstress did an amazing job, and was very reasonably priced. They were very nice about accommodating my request for one-day alteration, since I live in Ottawa and was in town to visit my family. Would recommend to any bride who wants a beautiful gown."

Ceremony:

Knox Presbyterian Church - Ceremony - 227 Elgin Street, Ottawa, ON

Knox Presbyterian Church

227 Elgin Street
Ottawa, ON

"Gorgeous large church with a wonderful organ. It was a pleasure putting the ceremony together with Rev. Gemmell and the organist played some songs for us so we could choose which ones we wanted. There is a lovely courtyard that you can take photos in and greet your guests after the ceremony."

Reception:

National Arts Centre - Reception - 53 Elgin St, Ottawa, ON, K1P

National Arts Centre - Fountain Room

53 Elgin St
Ottawa, ON

"Our wedding reception at the National Arts Centre (NAC) was fabulous. We chose to get married in a church nearby, but you can have your ceremony there too. For being right downtown it is very reasonably priced. The room rental fee may seem steep at first, but it includes everything (linens, flatware, tealights) and there is no cake cutting fee! We wanted an all-day breakfast for dinner, and they accommodated our request happily, along with serving mimosas. The Fountain Room was a perfect size for our 100-person wedding, and having the terrace overlooking the canal on a warm summer night made the day even more perfect. The other review mentions some negative things, but we weren't kicked out until 2, and alcohol was flowing until 1. I can't give it 5 stars since the venue wasn't perfect. During the last speech we could hear the music from the room beside ours, which was a bit distracting. But once our music started (on the dancefloor at the other side of the room) we never heard it again. Communications via email were sometimes a bit unclear, but there is only one contact person, which is nice, and she is great. The evening of our wedding there was a festival at the park across the street so Elgin street was closed, which isn't the NAC's fault, but something to be aware of. Overall, a great experience, and I would recommend the NAC to anyone."
