Looking your best on your wedding is a given — but feeling your best? It’s a must. That’s why were loving CEDAR Juice, the cold pressed juice cleanse that will help you look + feel amazing for your big day. Not only do CEDAR Juices taste amazing, but they are the perfect kickstart to a whole new healthy living routine!

With CEDAR Juice, not only will you feel rejuvenated on the inside, but you’ll be glowing on the outside — all in time for your big day! Here are just a few of the amazing benefits you’re in for:

  • Energy, Energy, Energy: By the end of day 2 you’ll feel energized & up for anything. We’re not talking the kind of energy you get from your 3pm coffee…this is long lasting energy!
  • Improved Skin Tone:  By flooding your body with nutrients, and omitting processed foods, dairy, meat and grains, your skin will glow. Hello, wedding day photos!
  • Real Weight Loss: Though some of the weight that is lost is water weight, you’ll also naturally lose “real” weight by cutting processed foods, empty calories + dairy!
  • Increased Mental Clarity: There are a million things that need to get done before a wedding, and CEDAR Juice will help you get that to-do list finished by clearing that dreaded “brain fog” we all get.
  • Better Sleep: No more tossing + turning for you! By the end of the three day cleanse, you’ll look forward to better sleep patterns.

Before your cleanse begins, CEDAR Juice provides you with information on how to best prepare (what to eat, what to avoid, etc.) and they also include their Black Book of instructions to help you stay on track. During the cleanse, CEDAR will be in touch to make sure all is going well and after it’s all over, they provide guidance on how to ease back into real foods!

Cozy Canada Winter Chateau Wedding

This cozy wedding warms my heart in a serious way – and, believe it or not – has me longing for those cold winter nights. Lynn Lee planned the charming affair complete with sleigh rides and hot chocolate favors, while Joel Bedford was there to capture every pretty detail (including the Bride’s fresh Full Bloom bouquet). Snuggle up in the gallery and just try not to crave a cup of cocoa. I dare you.


From The Bride…We knew that in choosing the Chateau Montebello as our winter destination wedding we had got the big things right- a charming rustic lodge for friends and family to meet and stay under one roof, excellent seasonal food, and a sense of place for Scott’s family who have a country home in the nearby village. But of course, weddings are a series of small details so we needed to sweat those too- enter Lynn Lee, our wedding planner. Lynn effortlessly wove all the details into a formal, classic, and meaningful wedding ceremony and reception- from sleigh rides to hot chocolate wedding favours- she surpassed all of our expectations. The highlight of her work was the dining room set in the Canada Room- three long elegant candle-lit tables with dozens of candelabras seating all 95 of our guests- breathtaking. Lynn helped us achieve what we had wanted all along for guests- a warm, special moment in the midst of a long, cold, dark winter. We must say even mother nature cooperated on our wedding day, delivering a sunny +3 degrees centigrade in late February but we suspect Lynn Lee might have had something to do with that too.

Stylish Quebec Wedding at Le Belvedere

It starts with the amazingly orange shoes and then, just when you think it can’t get any better, it does. In a big way. Seen through the lens of Joel Bedford, this wedding is simply stunning from start to finish – and will have you pinning the day away in this gorgeous gallery.

Event Venue

From Joel BedfordWe are so thrilled to have photographed Pam + Arjen’s jam-packed-family-filled-romantic wedding day. They are an absolutely beautiful couple with loving friends and relatives. The whole day was a whirlwind with one great photo opportunity presenting itself after another. Thank you for having us there!

From The Bride…A year in the making and I can’t believe that our wedding day has finally arrived. Today is the beginning of our story as I’m marrying my partner in crime, my best friend and my love. Who would have though, May 31/2014, a perfectly sunny day, 25 degree celsius… and there it was in all its glory. A perfect day in a dreamlike location; we couldn’t be happier. I designed the entire day myself and Grace executed my vision beautifully!

Suddenly, you realize that time is flying: he looks dashing in his grey suit and friends and family have gathered to celebrate us. I’m nervous but excited and so is he. Soon enough, the ceremony is over, the music starts and the guests are enjoying the scenery and delicious hors d’oeuvres. The truth is that there many blurs about our special day; everything happens so fast and when you blink, the night is over. Although you work at striving for perfection on your wedding day, the reality is that there are always small glitches. However, the irony is that the wedding is still perfect. Perfect because we were surrounded by love, laughter, joy and fun! Those are the memories Arjen and I hope to remember for the rest of our lives.

On May 31 2014, I married my partner in crime, my best friend and my love.

From Valerie Busque Photography…Sometimes the beauty is in simplicity, as evidenced by this beautiful stripped atmosphere created by Valerie Busque photographer, in an old barn on l’îles d’Orleans, Rustic chic trend makes sense with wood accessories, whitewashed walls, lace dress and white palette enhanced by touches of cherry, strawberry and raspberry.
