Manoir de la Forêt Wedding
Christine and Stephen | An intimate Manoir de la Forêt Wedding
I am so very excited to introduce you to one of my very favourite days: Christine and Stephen’s Manoir de la Forêt wedding! The first time I met Christine and Stephen in person was at Little Victories Coffee Roasters in Ottawa, ON and it was perfectly suited for all of us. We all clicked so quickly and bonded over our love of coffee. We snuggled up as they told me their story, one that I’m happy to share with all of you.
Since these two have been together for a decade, I was excited to hear their proposal story. It definitely did not disappoint! Here’s how they told it:
“After being together for 10 years, it’s hard to capture that ‘surprise’ factor. Honestly, we had discussed it a lot, but never made the concrete plans. We knew, though, that 10 years was a big milestone, and to celebrate it with a wedding was something that would really special to both of us. [Steve] still managed to surprise me with the big question, though! That story, too, happened as naturally as anything else does with us. On a Thursday night, with Frasier on TV, and with pizza as a prop, he asked me to spend the rest of my life with him, knowing full well the answer could only be yes.”

The wedding itself was beautiful and relaxed. Christine and Stephen have exceptional style, so everything looked elegant, natural, and classy. After sharing their first look in the heart of the forest, Christine and Stephen took some wedding party photos before their wedding ceremony. Once their guests arrived, everyone gathered in the forest chapel for their ceremony. Manoir de la Forêt is truly one of the most beautiful venues in Ottawa if you’re looking to have an outdoor ceremony!
