I’ve known David for many years and know that one of the last places he wants to be is in front of the camera. Also a photographer, I know it was difficult for him to turn off that switch that makes you want to have a camera in your hands. Alison, I only really got to know few months before the wedding. After speaking with the two of them together, I knew this would be a wedding that reflected their personalities perfectly. Quiet, understated, admittedly a little awkward, full of love and appreciation. The ceremony and reception were held at the Courtyard Restaurant in Ottawa’s ByWard Market. The paper cranes, sprinkle-crusted cake, and penis balloons? were just a few of the subtle symbols and mementoes that made their wedding authentic to them.
