Modern Wedding in Montreal from Isabelle Paille

There are mesmerizing weddings and then there are mesmerizing weddings.  A day so magical that you literally have to stop all other obligations to soak in every last moment of pretty.  This is one of those weddings.  A close the door, silence the phone, kick up your heels on the desk type of affair that soooo deserves your full attention.  A wedding that sparkles from head to toe with contemporary details from Fleurs & Confetti, yummy treats from Sug’art and a Centre des sciences de Montreal setting that will take your breath away.  See it all captured by Isabelle Paille right here in the full gallery.

Spring

From Isabelle PailleThis particular spring wedding I love, because of the balance of city and green, of an industrial place decorated with warmth in all things whimsy, of a love story that’s all very urban, yet with all the classic charm to it. It’s as well balanced as this couple is, and preparing this wedding with them was nothing short of a dream!

The modern and industrial space was the perfect blank canvas, with, at night, a breath taking view of the city. Invitations were done in a modern style but with sorbet colours added, yellow, green and a tiny bit of peach! Refectory tables were used draped in white, with white folding chairs as well, to give a festive and fresh look. Yellow spring flowers such as tulips were used abundantly, as well as sugar covered lemons, as place markers. The decor elements were simple and fresh on the guests tables, drawing attention to the bride and groom’s table that was decorated abundantly. The sweet table was a huge success too.

This wedding was absolutely lovely, from the beginning to the end, with so many details and final touches that made the guests yellow with envy! And a year later, clients are still referring to it as THE Science center wedding.

Quebec Engagement + Pre-Wedding Shoot from Lydiane Gaborieau Photographe

You know what I love? A Bride-to-be that isn’t afraid to dance around in a gown before her big day. And with her groom no less. I mean, how many times in life will you actually have a perfect excuse to twirl around in such a fabulous frock? Not many. So this pre-wedding engagement shoot is just perfection and then some in my eyes, and you can see why here.

From the Bride… It was love at first sight… from the moment we met each other in Toronto. We knew our long relationship was a challenge but our love kept us going, and as the time kept passing, our love kept growing stronger. After four and a half years of dating, we got engaged on September 3rd, 2010. We will getting married on August 2nd, 2013 in Montreal, Quebec

From James Paul CorreiaJeannie and Johan had a wedding like I’ve never seen; they wanted a vintage feel to the wedding and they nailed it. The beautiful little city of Ormstown, Quebec (just outside of Montreal) was the perfect backdrop. From St. Paul’s United Church for the ceremony to La Ferme d’Andre for the reception, it all came together like pieces of a puzzle. But the best part was the reception decor. Jeannie brought in a number of vintage items, such as a film projector, a typewriter, luggages, an old map to indicate table seating, and even an assortment of vintage dishwear. It was like a museum!

The day started at the family’s picture perfect home where the ladies got ready. Jeannie and Johan then got into their vintage Cadillac for the creative photosession; starting with an homage to their love for rugby.

From Lydiane Gaborieau Photographe...Audrey and Mathieu got married on Jan. 26th and wanted a rustic environnement for their engagement pictures as it was the feel of their wedding. What better place in Montreal than the Auberge St Gabriel… Situated in the old port it offers the perfect setting for an adorable photo-shoot. This couple was so stylish and fitted so well with the decor. We took advantage of the nice weather outside to get a few shots in front of the auberge.

From Leslie PasserinoFor Alex, proposing to Cindy had to be a special, unique and whimsical moment. Cindy is his princess, his world, his everything. When Alex and I met to discuss the proposal, our goal was to make sure that Cindy would not find anything amiss or suspicious, and to put her in a familiar setting: a photoshoot.

We chose one of their favorite eras, the 1960’s, which was perfect for the engagement of a jazzman to a freelance columnist, blogger and model. The proposal was held at the House of Jazz in Montreal, Quebec. We carefully planned each and every detail of the photoshoot and proposal: stationery, atmosphere, table setting, menswear, dress, flowers, etc.

When Cindy arrived with Alex the morning of the proposal, the set looked like a regular photoshoot, with a makeup artist, a hairstylist, close-up photographers, cinematographers, and a creative director. The photoshoot was perfect. Their family arrived and hid discreetly behind a curtain. At the end of the photoshoot, Alex sat in front of his beloved and started to talk. Cindy suddenly realized that something different was happening. Alex was proposing… and she said yes!

It was a very emotional moment for everyone; all the team had tears in their eyes. After Cindy had said “yes”, their family came out from behind the curtains and the bride to be was taken by emotions… It was an incredible moment.

Montreal Parian Laundry Wedding from Grey Sparrow

Do you want to know one of the things I absolutely love? When a Bride can look back on her day and say she wouldn’t have it any other way. When things fell into place just so, and the end result was a dream day for the new Mr. & Mrs. Well, Grey Sparrow is bringing us just such a couple and just such a day today, and I could kiss them for it. Because a dream day for a Bride makes for a dream day for me, and you can see every perfect detail here.

From the Bride… Aside from being surrounded by family and friends, nothing meant more to us than hosting a wedding that would really represent our relationship… in more subtle and non cheesy way of course. We’re a couple of old souls who met in an unlikely modern way. A mix of old school tradition and values, modern style and some DIY touches helped us pull off the wedding of our dreams.

Sourcing ideas and planning all the little details was our favorite part. Countless hours spent browsing wedding magazines and sites like Style Me Pretty, Etsy and Pinterest served as inspiration. We took a hands-on approach from the beginning and looking back now, wouldn’t have had it any other way.

Our favorite project was probably our wedding favours. We made a CD of our most meaningful love songs to sum up our day and show our guests just how grateful we were to have them with us. Each song was arranged in order so that it read like a love note.
