Even though Cassidy and Dayna both played on the varsity ice hockey team at the University of Vermont (UVM) they never could have imagined how their love story would play out. While great friends at first, they both quickly realized there was something much deeper to their connection.
Eight years later, with many ups and a few downs, Dayna proposed to Cassidy on the dock of her family cottage on Big Rideau Lake in Ottawa, Ontario under a setting sun with nobody else around, just the two of them.

Today on the blog we have the bride sharing some of her favourite moments of her love story!
“We met on Tinder – we were both about to delete the app but gave it one more chance & instantly connected. We texted all day and night for about a week before our first date where we bonded over our shared love of pizza at Tennessy Willems. Since meeting we became inseparable and moved at lightning speed moving in together in five months and getting engaged the following year – it was only the pandemic that slowed us down!

Lauren and Justin worked closely with Michael Donovan from WEDECOR to plan their dream fairytale wedding at the National Arts Centre in Ottawa, Ontario. Set to a classic palette with soft blush and white tones, their wedding was a beautiful pairing of timeless elegance.
The morning of their wedding day was spent in the downtown core getting ready with the wedding party. Together Taryn Miller and Parla Hair completed Lauren’s bridal look with glamorous makeup and hair, leaving the bride feeling incredible on her wedding day.
WEDECOR created the perfect floral pairing for their wedding visions using garden and spray roses, listhanthus, hydrangeas and ranunculus with various greenery to tie in their design. This aesthetic was carried through the ceremony space with a lush arbour where the couple exchanged their personal vows in front of their closest family and friends.

From the Bride:
“We actually first met in March 2010 at a party celebrating the Persian new year. Farzad’s best man, Saman, was actually our mutual friend and we met through him. After that initial meeting, we didn’t see each other for 5 years until reconnecting again in 2015 through Saman again. After hanging out a couple of times, he asked me to be his date at an upcoming gala and the rest is history! Funny thing is that when our parents met for the first time, they actually ended up already knowing each other through the Persian community.

I always find it very flattering when other creatives in the industry approach us with collaboration proposals! Sometimes, it’s a great fit and our visions align perfectly and other times they do not align properly based on the style and vision of the shoot. Editorial shoots are more work than you would imagine. With editorials […]

The tall grass, mix of trees and white sand, it has everything a photographer could want to capture beautiful images.

We’ve all marveled at the most glorious photos wedding photographers have to offer. They paper their homepages, coat their experience pages and fill their Instagram feeds.
