"I've got a new theory about marriage. Two people are in love, they live together, and then suddenly one day, they run out of conversation." ~ Gareth
"Uh huh." ~ Charles
"Totally. I mean they can't think of a single thing to say to each other. That's it. Panic! Then suddenly, it occurs to the chap that there is a way out of the deadlock." ~ Gareth
"Which is?" ~ Charles
"He'll ask her to marry him." ~ Gareth
"Brilliant! Brilliant!" ~ Charles
"Suddenly they've got something to talk about for the rest of their lives." ~ Gareth
"Basically you're saying marriage is just a way of getting out of an embarrassing pause in conversation." ~Charles
"The definitive ice breaker." ~ Gareth
Today I finish this series from the wedding show that was held in the Convention Center in January. There was a lot to see, from clothing to place settings- enough to make me grateful I'm not planning one of these. Good lord, that's a lot of decisions and work.
This was a display from a bakery out in the Orleans area that specializes in wedding cakes. These were mock ups of their work.
This large photograph from a wedding photographer caught my eye, because the background looked familiar. The Mississippi River (ours, not the American one) flows through the town of Almonte southwest of Ottawa, spilling over these rocks as the Grand Falls. The angle for the photograph is one that's less commonly seen than many views of these falls- the photographer told me she was on an upper platform looking down at the couple, hence the different perspective. Most people will photograph from down where the couple is.
Amberwood Lounge & Eatery is another place specializing in hosting weddings. It's out in the Kanata-Stittsville area, and is relatively new.
Coming back out of the hall, I paused by this large mirror and the displays out in the promenade before taking my leave of the building. It was certainly an experience, not to mention ideal for the photographer to get some shots in. I hope you've enjoyed this look at this event.
