Take a break from the warm weather and enjoy this elegant winter wedding, brought to us by Melanie Shields Photography! Here’s Melanie to tell us more:

Anik and David were married on a chilly Saturday in February at the gorgeous Strathmere Inn just outside of Ottawa, Ontario.

See more after the cut!

They added so many DIY personal touches from pinecones and lanterns lining the aisles to additional edison lighting around the room.

Other highlights included the matching fur shawls, the flower girls being the first to throw fake snow down the aisle and Anik and Dave’s desire to have night portraits.
