Winners of the 2nd Ottawa Wedding Awards

The Ottawa wedding industry vendors gathered for a night of celebration and friendship at the 2015 Ottawa Wedding Awards. The packed house at the Ottawa Conference and Event Centre was a testament to the vibrant community of businesses who provided brides and grooms all the supplies and services for their wedding.

More than 360 people were on hand for this year’s version of the Ottawa Wedding Awards. Conceived by Brian Henry, co-owner of Quality Entertainment, the awards gala is a fabulous way for vendors to connect and network. It seems to be the un-official kick-off to the Ottawa wedding season. The usual parting words are, “See you out there.”

It is extra-ordinary that Ottawa has a collegiality among its wedding vendor community. People meet for the first time, are introduced or re-kindle an acquaintance.
In the lead up to the handing out of the awards, vendors were nominated and voted upon. Over 15,000 single votes were cast per category. The gala had folks out in their finery to an elegant room conceived by Nicole Ouellette of Piper Avenue along with Sophie Branchaud of Sage Designs and Jennifer McAndrew of Mastermind Events. Janice Lewis of Project J Events was valuable in her work behind the scenes keeping everything organized and the website up to date. The dinner was delicious. In between courses, we praised our fellow vendors who won in their categories.
