Modern Black & White Inspiration Shoot

If you are looking for some black and white inspiration for you big day, look no further! This modern inspiration shoot blends a few of my favorite things: anemones, bow ties, and caviar from Délices Nicolina Servello Food (all black and white, of course). Lisa Renault Photographie captures this touching shoot full of gorgeous details and much more here!


From imaginejoy calligraphie… This modern styled shoot (or “créatif” as we call it in Montréal) was conceptualized by Joy Deneen of imaginejoy calligraphie and captured through the lens of Lisa Renault Photographie. With a team of creative wedding vendors, we worked within a black and white colour palette, drawing loose inspiration from the paintings of Jackson Pollock. Splashes, splatters and drops of paint make bold statements in the invitation suite, table settings and a variety of decorative elements.

The shoot took place in the sunny studio of food stylist and caterer Nicolina Servello. Her space boasts a full kitchen, inspiring prop rooms and absolutely beautiful light. Her atelier also sits above Westwood Salon, and owner Ingrid Bauer provided hair, makeup and grooming for our models.

A longtime couple in real life, Dominique and Marc played the parts of our dashing grooms. Along with their classic black bow ties and suspenders, they each wore a different boutonnière, created by O.xide Design. Black and white anemones also made an appearance on the gorgeous five tier cake by Luisa Galuppo Cakes, highlighting Luisa’s stunning sugar flower work and a hand painted quote by imaginejoy calligraphie.

In addition to the cake, hand lettered details abounded, from sleek mirrored chargers doubling as place cards to a painterly invitation suite and bar detailing. Joy also painted E.E. Cummings’ poem “[i carry your heart with me (i carry it in]” on one studio wall. The mural served as a dynamic backdrop for the couple’s portraits.

The shoot also featured a decadent culinary spread which included a variety of black liquorice candies, an Italian amaro bar, squid ink pasta, terrines of panna cotta and caviar and a seafood platter for a pop of colour.

All of these details were captured beautifully by Lisa Renault, who has an impeccable eye and gift for natural light photography. We were also incredibly fortunate to be joined by Michael Abril and Jérôme Lafone, who shot a fantastic behind the scenes video (edited by Benoit Fry) of the team at work.

Montreal Engagement Session at Macdougall Manor

We adore engagement sessions around these parts. And when they are as adorable as this one from Junophoto, well then we flat out love them. From the fun prop styling to the cute-as-can be couple themselves, this gallery is simply as sweet as they come, and you can soak it all up right here.


From The Bride…Andy and I met a few years back when we were both starting our first student summer job. At the beginning, there were shared glances and shy smiles. But then, Andy managed to steal my phone number and that is how it all started. After a few dates, ice creams, the fifth Harry Potter, the first movie Transformers and Andy handing me a rose from a bended knee, I became his girlfriend.

That summer turned out to be the most magical and carefree summer of our lives.

For our engagement photo session, I wanted to recreate this whimsical and youthful atmosphere of when we first met. Camille, our photographer, has made this possible by creating pictures that are simple, yet incredibly joyful, luminous and romantic.

Outdoor Engagement Session at Atwater Market

Say the words “summer engagement session” and it’s like an amazing portal into the land of sunshine, waterside picnics and ice cream cones with your honey.  Basically everything this sweet e-sesh captured by Julia C. Vona of Junophoto happens to be.  It’s an adorable duo celebrating 10 years of happiness… and the anticipation of one seriously awesome wedding.  See it all in the full gallery.

From The Bride… We met through our student job in a restaurant back in 2003, became friends and started dating the following year. We’ve been together ever since, surviving the challenges inherent of long-distance dating (which we did for three years), and of juggling master’s and doctoral studies while working. Fred popped the big question in 2012 while hiking on a picturesque path. We asked Junophoto’s team to immortalize our engagement along the Lachine canal in Montreal, close to where we first moved in together. It was really meaningful to go back to a site full of memories of long walks, runs and time spent wining down on the grass, but this time with photographers who knew how to make us feel at ease! We also loved capturing on picture our stop at the Atwater market, where we treated ourselves with a delicious ice cream cone… always my favorite in the hot Montréal summer.

To represent our love of the outdoors, family traditions of DIY of all kinds, but also the chic and glam that comes with our Montreal life, a “rustic chic” wedding was the way to go for us. Planned in 2014 to mark our ten years together, we chose a venue in Quebec city to celebrate this very special moment in the region where we are both from. With the help of family members and friends, this day promises to be filled with joy and personal touches. In short, a wedding full of Mason jars, hand-made embroideries, burlap, wood slices, a S’mores bar to close the event, but, most importantly, a wedding full of love!

Rustic Chic Wedding on Navark Island

When stylish folks like DJ Abeille and her handsome hubby (who happens to be the brains behind many fabulous things, including le Mechant Mangeur) tie the knot, you know it’s not only going to be a gorgeous party, but a fun one too. So it shouldn’t be a big surprise that the wedding sitting pretty below is one for the books. Captured beautifully by Emilie Iggiotti, this is one gallery you simply cannot miss.

From Emilie IggiottiAbeille is a DJ, TV host and TV personality in Montreal and Na’eem is a foodista, food blogger and social media specialist. They got engaged in India, at the Taj Mahal. How romantic is this? Their wedding was a perfect mix of traditions: Abeille is from a French quebecois family and Na’eem is Indian. They had a mehndi party a few days before the big wedding. The style of their wedding was really rustic and chic. The colors were a mix of peach, pink and blue and it was lovely. The flowers made by Atelier Carmel were just perfect. Their wedding took place on a private island in Montreal, called Navark. The light on this island at sunset is simply amazing.

Their wedding was full of surprises, from musicians playing sitara during cocktail, to Bollywood dancers launching the dance party with the bride and groom, to the bride’s friend playing the guitar and singing a song for the newlyweds during dinner, to the groom’s best man (who is a painter) painting a piece of art (the Taj Mahal) for them during the reception as a gift, to the surprise birthday cake for Abeille’s sister… the wedding was just a day full of life and love and celebration and happiness. Not to mention the constant smile on the bride’s face and the happiness of the groom. This wedding was all about love, dance and bliss.

Modern Montreal Wedding at Belvedere Hall

This is they kind of couple that just simply has style. That kind of style that just seems to follow them wherever they go, which really shined through on the day they said I do. With the help of Unity Weddings, they created a bright, happy and vibrant day that will inspire you and then some, and you can see every gorgeous image from Micheal B right here.

From Unity WeddingsSylvie and Eric were married on a muggy day in Montreal, which turned out quite well since their reception was so colourful. Using the red wall inside the hall as a point of departure, we designed a bright and eclectic affair for these two lovebirds. Long white polished tables became the canvas for shades of gold, pink, orange, and everything in between. To match our design, the florist custom-made gold wooden boxes to hold the flower runners, and the cake was adorned with sugar flowers to match the centerpieces.And since the bride works for a firm that offsets carbon emissions, what better parting gift could we give the guests than a potted plant? These also doubled as place settings.
