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!

DIY Quebec Wedding at Cheshire Lodge from Junophoto

Get ready to have your socks charmed right off, because this fabulous fête captured by Junophoto is seriously adorable. And sweet. And beautiful. Right down to the core, everything sitting in this gallery is what weddings are all about, and that just makes me so incredibly happy. See why here.


From the Bride… Etienne and I think love and happiness grows by being shared and the idea of getting married was foremost a way to share this love and happiness we have been experiencing for the past eleven years together. We searched a long time for that perfect location for our wedding. We were looking for an intimate place in the middle of nature with a rustic feel. Cheshire lodge was the best place! We fell in love at first sight!

A good advice for couples preparing their wedding is to engage the people around you to help. It is incredible what people can do for the cause of LOVE! We gave a mission to every person that was interested in having one. Everybody around us took their mission very seriously and gave their all to please us. It was so beautiful and touching to see all of our close friends and family work towards that project for the whole year!

Etienne’s mother (Anita) and sister (Clara) were dedicated to the table setting. All of the wonderful flowers and herbs are from Anita’s garden. Clara had the brilliant idea to reuse the centerpieces as wedding favors (eco-friendly we like!) The bouquets and boutonnières were fastidiously made by Atelier Carmel. Practically, every aspects of our wedding was diy. We even wanted to prepare the food at one point, but decided to be realistic to the relief of our family. We wanted the meal to be vegetarian and Miss Prêt à manger was one of the only caterer in Montreal to satisfy our needs! Also, because we like cheese so much, my sister and brother in law prepared cheese platters to die for!

When it was time to choose the photographer, we opted for Juno photo. Wedding pictures can be easily cheesy, but Junophoto was everything except that! They have a fun, creative and modern look. We were very pleased by our photos! The mason jar theme all started with the invitations that we had a lot of fun doing! Guests were drinking from mason jars, the flowers and candles were also placed in mason jars and let’s not forget the wedding favors; strawberry jam prepared on a sunny Sunday at my parent’s cottage with a lot of love and dedication from our
friends and family!

We really took the time to personalize the ceremony and every details of this beautiful sunny day and everything was better than expected!

Irish Creek Farm Wedding from AMB Photo + Chic Wedding Planners

Is it weird that I kind of want to be this couple? Or at least come with them on all of their travels? Because they seem completely amazing, and from the looks of their wedding and how much their friends and family did to make their day a reality – I am pretty sure that’s the case. With the help of all their loved ones (her mom made 20 cakes!) and the talented Julie of Chic Wedding Planners, they created a day so pretty I could cry – and all the gorgeous images from AMBphoto are waiting for you right here.

From the Bride… Salim and I have been together for 7 years. We met while studying in Montreal, Canada and have since been making our relationship work over three continents. We have lived together in Canada, France, Syria, and are just packing our bags to move to Switzerland.

We first talked about getting married while hiking in the Alps, and first talked about a wedding when we were at my friend’s wedding at Irish Creek Farm two years before. We loved the laid back setting, the rolling Quebec countryside, and the 100-year old rustic barn. We could see ourselves there! As we started planning, we tried to avoid the idea that it was “our day.” We share many special days together as a twosome, but this day was going to be particularly special because of the important people in our lives who joined us from near and far to celebrate. Our friends and family came from all over the world – from Mali, Chile, Cuba, France, Switzerland, Spain, Qatar, Hong Kong, the United Arab Emirates, the US, and all over Canada! We wanted to honour them and their effort to get Lac Sainte Marie, and have an event where everyone was well taken care of and felt completely at ease.

Many people helped us with our wedding – my mother baked our 20 wedding cakes, made welcome packages of banana loaf and fresh fruit for all of our guests, picked the berries and made the jam for the favours, and even sewed all of the tablecloths. My talented sister sewed the buntings, and my father made historical family photo boards. We wanted a very kid-friendly wedding and so some of my teacher friends helped me put together loot bags for the 20 or so kids at our wedding, including a personalized bingo for the older kids, crayons and paper for the younger kids, bubbles, candied necklaces, and very popular and coveted glow stick necklaces. We also had a great vintage bingo wheel from Amy&Jen Rentals that we filled with gumballs, and a piñata filled with goodies that was a big hit.

We were delighted that our wedding weekend was indeed the joyful and relaxed event that we had envisioned. I think that the highlights for us were some of the most spontaneous parts of the night – an impromptu toast by an old friend, a Lebanese blessing by a cousin. And then the dance. The floor was always packed and I saw people breaking it down whom I never would have imagined on the dance floor! It will be forever etched in our memory as a charmed and magical weekend.

Matane Wedding at The Vineyard Carpinteri from Camille Marciano of JunoPhoto

It shouldn’t be that much of a surprise when I say I love weddings. That’s pretty obvious. But sometimes I come across a wedding I love so much I just want to spend every last second of my day with it. Well, that’s precisely what happened when I came across this beauty captured by Camille Marciano. It’s floral crowns and flowy dresses, gorgeous vineyard settings and a stunning couple – so if you need to find me, I’ll be right here poring over all the pretty in the full gallery of images.

Vineyard

In a champetre chic style, Emilie and Jonathan’s wedding took place on one of the rare rainy days in Matane in August, but as we say in French, “Rainy marriage- Happy marriage!” It was the watchword of the couple on this important day of their life.

We did the couple’s shoot in the vineyard while the rain stopped for 30 minutes!

The main colors were pink, beige and grey – pastel tones and a wonderful sense of the aesthetics. It is so rare to Matane to see such a beautiful wedding – and all the guests were surprised with the decor, mostly hand-made by the bride.

From the Bride… Carpinteri’s winery, an enchanting setting inspired by Tuscan vineyards located in our hometown, was the perfect venue for our special day. We decided to play with both chic and rustic details to settle that romantic and fairy tale like atmosphere.

We got inspired by a soft palette, with tone colors such as gray for groomsmen suits, blush for bridesmaid dresses and ivory for my dress and groom’s shirt. I fell in love with a Hayley Paige dress for my big day; crystal floral beaded straps and tulle details at back made it the perfect romantic dress – simple and elegant at the same time – which really suited for a vineyard wedding. I loved the idea of adding a little bohemian touch to my look so I decided to wear a flower crown, and had a mix of roses and wildflowers for my bouquet.

Jonathan and I designed the wedding theme and decor from A to Z. Details such as burlap table runners, white net curtain in windows, candles on table runners and baby’s breath centertables added romance to the venue. The honor table was adorned by flowers, candles and little lights, and surrounded by string lights and small palm trees to remind the nature setting.

As the evening wore on, atmosphere went from romantic to festive while guests enjoyed a live accoustic band followed by a DJ. We also did a choreography with the bridesmaids and groomsmen to open the dancefloor later at night. I would say this is a must-do for couples who want to surprise their guests and throw a party atmosphere!

One of the most magical moment of this day is the first look we did before the ceremony. In the end, this moment was only the beginning of all the lovely surprises and special moments of this memorable day!”

From the planner… Lee and Ruwan came to me over a year and half ago. They had seen photos of a wedding I had done at Cote Nord (featured on Style Me Pretty, actually), and fell in love with the romantic and intimate feeling of the place.

With a small guest list of 60 of their closest friends and family, and most of their vendors lined up, they wanted my help mostly with the decor. Using Lee’s inspiration palette of soft pinks, lavenders, and cream, I designed a decor for her that would fit right in with the rustic nature of the venue. I inserted wood runners under her flowers, to tie in with the very woods-y feel of the building.

The wood runners were actually simple two by fours that I purchased and custom cut at my local hardware store. The brides father hand-carved little wooden owls to give to everyone as a keepsake. And since the bride wanted her flowers in milk glass, but also wanted to keep things budget-friendly, we purchased Ikea carved glasses and spray-painted them a pearl-y cream color.

The result was simple, warm, and intimate, just like the party itself.

Quebec Wedding from Dallas Curow

This Quebec wedding at Le Belvédère by Dallas Curow is just pure lovely. Pure, oh my goodness I can’t believe this is real, lovely. It’s the type of wedding that seems like a fairytale from the first image to the last, and you have to pinch yourself to make sure it’s all real. But oh it is, and it all makes for one completely stunning gallery of images.

From Dallas Curow…Staci and Dan were married at the maiden event of Le Belvédère, a then brand new, eco-friendly venue situated in the rolling hills of Wakefield, Quebec, Canada. It was a destination wedding of sorts for them, as they are two Canadians who are currently living and working abroad in Beijing, China. Although they travelled back to their homeland to be married, they incorporated many Chinese items into their wedding decor as a nod to their current locale. In fact, they packed all the Ming vases that would decorate the tables in their suitcases with them on their trip home! Those vases, along with the Maneki-neko (beckoning cats that are very popular in China), fresh pastries from the bride’s hometown of Thunder Bay, ON, and their many other elegant yet playful elements created a joyful atmosphere that paid tribute to both their home and adopted countries. They shared their first dance overlooking the valley below right as the sun set, and later their guests sipped cocktails under the stars. It was an unspeakably beautiful event, and all the more impressive considering it was planned from nearly 6,500 miles away!

From the Bride, StaciOur dress code and concept for our wedding was “Creative Black Tie.” We wanted a classic feeling to the wedding without excluding people who wouldn’t normally dress up in tuxes etc. Black tie is too formal and restrictive. We wanted to have fun, be ourselves and by making it “creative,” we made it more accessible to all of our guests. We planned our wedding from China, which was fun but made for a lot more headaches than normal. It was difficult to make decisions on what we wanted since we couldn’t really see anything in person, and had trouble knowing what we were choosing. However, it did force us to make fast decisions and stick to them. Too much choice makes wedding planning more difficult, after all.
 
Given our situation, in hindsight I would recommend using a wedding planner. It is something we should have done and would have saved a lot of stress. Research and pricing is important, but at the end of the day, all quotes we received were similar so we went with the company, vendor etc that we felt most comfortable with.  I would also recommend to follow your heart and try not to listen to the opinions of others. A wedding is a reflection of you as a couple, not your guests. Guests should feel comfortable and welcome but not dictate the day!  A kids section is always a good idea too. It’s hard to pinpoint a favorite moment, because the whole day was a great moment. To touch on a few: getting ready with my bridesmaids; walking down the aisle and seeing my soon-to-be husband waiting for me; marrying him; pictures with the bridal party; my new husband’s thank you speech that brought the whole audience to tears, and of course, dancing!
