A Wintry Parisian-Inspired Shoot at Ottawa’s Strathmere Inn

Paris might be fêted for its springtime charms, but the City of Love’s winters are equally romantic. Held in December at Ottawa’s historic Strathmere Inn, this chic shoot channels the cooler side of Parisian glamor with a palette of pale pink, icy silver, and sleek black. The French take their chocolate seriously, so Blossom Events’ Mary Yang envisioned a story in which a boy and a girl fall in love over this most decadent treat. A local chocolatier provided handmade chocolates for the shoot, and a hot cocoa station served as a nod to the season.
