Romantic Fall Wedding in Montreal from Isabelle Paille

We chat about style a lot on SMP, but I am always amazed when I come across a couple that just seems to have more style in their pinky finger than I have throughout my entire body. One look at this romantic, Montreal wedding captured by Isabelle Paille, and it was obvious this was just such a couple. From the top of their heads to the tip of their toes, they’ve got this style thing down, and it showed in every moment of their gorgeous day. See it all here.


From Isabelle PailleLet me introduce you to Andre-Anne and Todd. She is french canadian from Montreal and Todd is from Toronto, Ontario. This blend of cultures, tastes, languages made this wedding one of the most magical one I had the chance to photograph. Andre-Ann is a fashion forward girl, and had a very clear idea in mind of what she wanted: an all Audrey Hepburn inspired kind of romance, with the lace, pink, roses and ranunculus, grey, velvet, pearls, candles, — and let’s not forget the hairstyle and mind blowing resemblance!– all of this in the most luxurious hotel in the city: Hotel St-James located in the old part of Montreal. A perfect blend, like they are, of romance and modernism. The event planning and Design was done by Blanc Events – in collaboration with Fleurs & Confetti for the flowers and the invitations – and the bilingual guest were treated to a bilingual very intimate ceremony, with texts from the Little Prince book that made everyone go awww, and were so in tune with their story. After the ceremony, guests were taken on a city bus tour while we were doing the couple pictures and then taken back to the cocktail. The day was a typical dark and rainy fall day, and both Andre-Anne and Todd were playful and joyful none the less and that made for authentic moody fall pictures too!

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.


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.
