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.
