It was a beautiful drive through the countryside. I knew I was approaching the Ivy Lea Club because the road was snuggling next to the shores of the St. Lawrence in the One Thousand Islands. Soon enough I saw the sign and turned down into the long driveway. I passed sailboats being repaired and a dock. Leaves were falling onto the gravel pathway. Each step crunched a new pile of fresh fallen leaves.
This wonderful Autumn day was perfect; overcast and next to no-breeze off the water. From the beginning of the day to the loud bag pipes into the wee hours, it was so magical. Holly works as an interior designer, downtown Ottawa so I knew the interior decor was going to be nothing far from extraordinary… and it was!
Scott and Holly married along the shores of the St. Lawrence and spent the rest of the afternoon/evening with the most important people in their lives. A warm fire was crackling and the sun set over the large body of water. Tears were shed, laughter was had, and a new chapter in two beautiful souls was started.
I wish you nothing but health and happiness Holly & Scott,
