Anne and David’s Wedding at Chateau Laurier

Victoria Day long-weekend I had the pleasure of performing at Anne & David’s chic Chateau Laurier wedding by Kennedy Events. I love minimalism, and this outdoor ceremony on the terrace was simple elegance at its very best.

Not much is needed to compliment the breathtaking view from the terrace overlooking the Canal, Locks, Parliament and Ottawa River. The Chateau Laurier itself is its own elegant backdrop.

Cocktails were at the grand piano in the Fireplace Foyer of the Laurier Room. Anne and David selected some lovely classic crooner ballads & love songs for me to play.
