Engage Ottawa is this city’s only luxury wedding show…

…and this year’s event took place on Sunday, February 14th at the historic Fairmont Chateau Laurier. Unlike other wedding shows, Engage Ottawa is focused entirely on quality, not quantity. This means that brides have unparalleled access to the best wedding vendors that Ottawa has to offer – the best photographers, the best bakers, the best venues, the best bridal salons, the best make-up artists, and the list goes on! All of this along with a delicious VIP brunch, fashion show, bouquet bar, and other amazing luxury giveaways!

If you didn’t have a chance to stop by this year’s Engage Ottawa show, you did miss out on a lot of fun (if we do say so ourselves), but not to worry! The lovely Laura Kelly of Laura Kelly Photography has provided us with some gorgeous images to recap the day!

First stop, the Food Market for the VIP Brunch event that kicked off Engage Ottawa!

Not only did With Love Bridal feature gorgeous gowns on the Engage Ottawa runway, but they also hosted a sample sale in our Food Market. Snacking on “appies” while dress shopping – does it get any better!?
