Jen and FM’s September “I Do”! // A Spartan Race Love Story
Oct 22, 2018 | By: Alicia Hall Photography
It feels so bittersweet to be writing my very last SUMMER WEDDING blog of 2018! With over 30 weddings shot this season (nearly doubling since last year, yay!), this summer has flown by, and I cannot think of a better way to end it than by writing about Jen and FM's September wedding!
I have been looking forward to write about their love story and special day since the day I met them at their engagement session! Jen and FM have been such a pleasure to work with since the very beginning and I feel so lucky to have been able to photograph their wedding and engagement.
It was clear that both Jen and FM were a very active couple, so when they told me that they first met at a Spartan Race in Ottawa, I was not the least bit surprised! While Jen was volunteering at the event, FM ran by her on multiple occasions as he was doing his designated laps, and stopped for a quick chat during his 4th. This small chat then led to crossing paths on social media, and then FM moving to Ottawa from Montreal to live with her (happily ever after!).
After dating for a little while, FM popped the question and the two decided to get married at Gatineau Golf & Country Cub on September 15th, 2018! Jen got ready in matching plaids with three of her closest friends, and looked stunning in her vintage-inspired lace dress and side-do! The bridal party on both sides were an absolute blast to photograph and looked adorable with their balloons (check them out below!).
Jen and FM left for Corsica, France soon after their wedding to enjoy their honeymoon in the Mediterranean! I sincerely hope they had the best time enjoying the clear blue waters, and amazing hikes and views that they told me all about before leaving.
Congrats to the newlyweds and thank you so much for letting me be a part of your special day! <3
