An Elegant Chateau Laurier Wedding in Ottawa
Besides all of the creamy, dreamy details (like the veil, gorgeous pink and blush-toned florals, and the five-tiered cake), when I originally saw this wedding on photographer Anne-Marie Bouchard’s blog in December, I couldn’t stop thinking about the ballroom where Karen and Dustin’s beautiful reception was located. I have never seen anything quite like it and wanted to know more. The French provincial decor is literally jaw-droppingly beautiful with its seemingly periwinkle blue walls with gold and cream accents. Of course, it is located in none other than the Fairmont Chateau Laurier.
Fondly known as the “Wedgwood” or “Oval” Room, the Adam Room was named after the British architect Robert Adam, who made this style of decoration famous in the late 18th century. The Adam Room can best be described as breathtaking. It truly stands alone in the luxurious beauty and design of its sculpted ceiling and oval shape, enhanced by a magnificent entrance platform.

As a funny little side note, even though I have seen this wedding on Anne-Marie’s blog a number of times now, I have just noticed that Karen is actually the daughter of my former boss, Tom. Congratulations on your lovely daughter’s wedding, Tom!
Karen’s incredible flowing veil, the bright pinks and soft blues that kept popping up throughout the day, the sweet feminine touches everywhere and the classic formal elegance these two loves exude. What a day, what a night. Congratulations Karen & Dustin! Thank you so so much for including us in your beautiful day.
