Rustic Chic Wedding on Navark Island

When stylish folks like DJ Abeille and her handsome hubby (who happens to be the brains behind many fabulous things, including le Mechant Mangeur) tie the knot, you know it’s not only going to be a gorgeous party, but a fun one too. So it shouldn’t be a big surprise that the wedding sitting pretty below is one for the books. Captured beautifully by Emilie Iggiotti, this is one gallery you simply cannot miss.


From Emilie IggiottiAbeille is a DJ, TV host and TV personality in Montreal and Na’eem is a foodista, food blogger and social media specialist. They got engaged in India, at the Taj Mahal. How romantic is this? Their wedding was a perfect mix of traditions: Abeille is from a French quebecois family and Na’eem is Indian. They had a mehndi party a few days before the big wedding. The style of their wedding was really rustic and chic. The colors were a mix of peach, pink and blue and it was lovely. The flowers made by Atelier Carmel were just perfect. Their wedding took place on a private island in Montreal, called Navark. The light on this island at sunset is simply amazing.

Their wedding was full of surprises, from musicians playing sitara during cocktail, to Bollywood dancers launching the dance party with the bride and groom, to the bride’s friend playing the guitar and singing a song for the newlyweds during dinner, to the groom’s best man (who is a painter) painting a piece of art (the Taj Mahal) for them during the reception as a gift, to the surprise birthday cake for Abeille’s sister… the wedding was just a day full of life and love and celebration and happiness. Not to mention the constant smile on the bride’s face and the happiness of the groom. This wedding was all about love, dance and bliss.

Traditional Orange & Green Wedding

It’s crazy to think that you could meet the love of your life at the ripe old age of six, but for these two sweeties that’s exactly what happened.  And when that childhood crush (with diary entries to prove it!) turned into something more at their high school reunion, it was like it was always meant to be.  See every last detail crafted by KA Wedding and captured by Catherine Giroux in the full gallery.

From KA Wedding… A unique love story, a happy couple, and a warm atmosphere, everything came together to make Jennifer and Marc-Alexis’ wedding an unforgettable day.

The story of Jennifer and Marc-Alexis is a fairy tale. They met when they were six years old! At that moment, they already felt something for each other. Jennifer was talking about Marc-Alexis in her diary when she was only seven (some of the pages were on display during the wedding). They lost contact after high school, but 10 years later they met during the school reunion. They never left each other again since that day. The wedding, organised by KA, absolutely represented the lovers. It was warm, joyful and classic. Candles, the colour orange, and the outside ceremony contributed to make this day a success. Details were highlighted. For example, the cake designer tailored the characters on top of the cake, golf balls identified places, and tables names represented memories of the newlyweds. Surprising fact: Tyra Banks approved the look of the groom before the ceremony.

Congratulations Jennifer and Marc-Alexis. Our best wishes!

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.


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!”
