Montreal Engagement Session from Lydiane Gaborieau Photographe

Engagement sessions totally make my day, so an engagement session with this much style? It’s in the running to make my month. Captured perfectly by Lydiane Gaborieau Photographe, it has a rustic yet hipster vibe that is totally in a category all of its own. Top it off with a soon-to-be-Mr & Mr? And this e-sesh is one for the books. See it all here.


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.

Art Venue

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.
