Welcome to our website

Bell bockstael wedding

We’d love to thank The Ottawa Hunt & Golf Club for their significant role in this relationship.

About Us

Chris and Emma met…well we don’t exactly remember when they met. But the couple thinks it was ~ 13 years ago. Chris aka "Box" would have first been introduced as a quasi-member of the Bell family at times, playing golf with Ben and the boys every summer. Over time, he and Emma crossed paths. A trip to Montreal here and there, or a holiday gathering that brought Emma back to Ottawa. Eventually it was whatever excuse they needed to see each other and as time went by, the connection was realized, and so began the long distance relationship that lasted 5+ years, before Emma accepted her fate in Ottawa. Now with a home and a dog that they share, they’re ready to seal the deal in Scottsdale!
