What could be more romantic and charming than the gorgeously French and hopelessly hip city of Montreal? That’s right, nothing. And should you find yourself planning a little nuptial in this fabulously chic city, you’ll definitely want to take a hint from this smart couple and hire the geniuses at Unity Weddings to design, coordinate, and yes, even do your stationary. Just one look at the drop dead tablescapes and you’ll be sold, trust me. We’re loving the juxtaposition of old French charm and modern glam. It really doesn’t get any better! Annalie Young snapped each and every gorgeous detail and there’s so so much more in the full gallery!
From Unity Weddings…When Tanya and Michael first came to me, they wanted a small and intimate wedding for 30 or so of their closest family and friends. Neither one of them had ever been to Quebec, and with all of their friends and family traveling in from various parts of the US, they chose Montreal for its old French charm. The Chateau Ramezay museum quickly became our venue of choice. An old French manor, complete with beautiful gardens and original decor, it would be the perfect setting for an intimate and elegant soiree. In order to not overdo the “antique-ness” of the venue, we decided to design a decor that would be sleek and modern.
A long plexi king’s table, clear ghost chairs, and loads of candles were immediately approved by the couple. We then designed what would look like a runner of pink and white blooms to soften the starkness of the modern table. We chose plates and silverware that would tie in with both the antique space and the modern decor. The 3-tier simple cake was dusted with a glistening powder, and topped with a hydrangea puff to match the floral arrangements.
With this being Michael’s fourth marriage (hey, you’ve got to believe in love!), and Tanya wearing the dress she had purchased for her first engagement nearly 20 years ago, the night was filled with tears, laughter, and so much love it was almost palpable.
