Ottawa’s LGBTQ2+ Wedding Show and Social Returns!

(Ottawa, ON – February 14, 2018) – Ottawa’s 3rd annual LGBTQ2+ Wedding Show and Social is returning! With a new LOOK and a new VENUE, Love is Proud is bringing LOVE back to Ottawa on February 24th, 2018 at the Mill Street Brewery between 11am and 4pm. ITM Events proudly returns as producer and Michael Donovan of Donovan Dream Designs adds a fresh, new look as the event planner!

Together, ITM Events and Donovan Dream Designs brings a new vibe to this year’s event showcasing amazing talent from the National Capital Region’s LGBTQ2+ friendly vendors and services. There is no better place for ALL couples to find the perfect team for their dream wedding.

The vendor lineup is completely sold out and the overwhelming support from industry professionals in the National Capital Region is something to be proud of. The all-star lineup of vendors span across the spectrum of services required for the perfect wedding. Gone is the trade show atmosphere, as attendees will experience a more relaxed atmosphere to discuss their wedding plans with industry professionals.

This year’s entertainment will be extravagant! The extremely talented burlesque dancer, Koston Kreme, will reveal her hoops and tassels as she “takes the stage with class, sass and just the right amount of ass”. Ranking among the top 10 burlesque performers in Canada two years running, she is one showgirl you don’t want to miss!

The GRAND prize! Enter to WIN A WEDDING PACKAGE with a value of $4350+. In partnership with several wedding professionals, this fundraiser will raise funds to help support the Wheels of Hope Lanark County – Canadian Cancer Society. Some highlights include:

  • $2000 Venue rental from Eco Tay Perth
  • $1595 Wedding Coordination Package from ITM Events
  • $250 credit towards The Commuters Live Band
  • $150 credit towards alterations or design with LP Tannett
  • $100 credit towards flowers with Sylvia’s Plant Place

Simply enter by purchasing a ticket to the Love is Proud LGBTQ2+ Wedding Show and Social. To earn more chances to win, there will be entry boxes at the event. More entries mean more chances to win! Help raise funds for Wheels of Hope Lanark County – Canadian Cancer Society and see a Love Is Proud couple walk down the aisle.

This event wouldn’t be possible without the incredible sponsors.
