As I prepare for one of my last weddings of the year, I'm also plugging away, furiously editing my 2017 wedding season. It's been busy, it's been fast and it's been days of dodging thunder and lightening storms while brides and grooms are cozying up to one another... being the best troopers there are. ( I definitely cannot dodge the tropical rain we're getting but what can you do?)
Y&D live in New York and chose to get married here in Montreal where they got engaged..where they come often for a getaway and where they find themselves making new memories together. C'est parfait, non?
When we discussed what their day would be like- they explained how as it's as much a celebration of their marriage, they really wanted to capture their family and friends. With that in mind we started with the getting ready moments at the Ritz Carlton surrounded by their closest girls and guys... with some champagne to go around too. It couldn't be more serene and full of joy. Even though rain was in the forecast, *surprise surprise* it held off for their first look..and the rest of the portraits.. thank goodness!
Their ceremony was complete with a true Persian Table called the Sofreh. Laiden with sweets and other items, each item representing a different element of the new couple starting their life together.
Although the rain came.... no one noticed as they enjoyed their canapes along with their bubbly and the incredible sound of Maz Band who are SO good live. There were moments where I was singing along to my favorite songs forgetting all together it was a live band. Their renditions of old and new hits were spot on.
We snuck out mid way through the evening to get some romantic night time shots and I must say, it was totally worth it. Thank you so much Y&D for being easy going and flexible on your big day. Having all your friends and family arrive in Montreal proved to be a huge act of love and with good reason. You two are so beautiful inside and out. Please, accept my many thanks for allowing me such an honor to document your day and I can't wait to see you next time...but in NYC!
