The Mirage Golf Club in Terrabone near Montreal is a gorgeous, relaxed venue for a wedding. It also happens to have a very famous owner….. a lady named Celine Dion!
When Ola & Gabrielle planned their big day they tell us they wanted “something pure, romantic and timeless; something that resembles who we are.” We think that’s exactly how a good wedding should be and we’re excited to share their wedding with you today.
We asked them to share some more about their fantastic wedding with us…
The Proposal Story
Ola proposed to Gabrielle in Paris; at the same restaurant they met 3 years before. It was totally a surprise!
The Planning Process
We planned everything ourselves as we thought that it would be fun and exciting! We started a year before but everything happened in the 4 last months.
We picked the Mirage Golf Club as we wanted a large outdoor space to be able to do the wedding ceremony but also the reception at the same venue. Gabrielle’s dad has been a member for several years and he was so pleased with the choice.
Finding the Dress
Gabrielle mainly wear only black so she was pretty stressed about wearing all white, even for that special day. She had her dress custom made by the talented Montreal based designer Elisa C-Rossow. Adding the touch of grey made this dress even more at the image of Gabrielle.
Finding the Shoes
Ola drove Gabrielle to Toronto to get her perfect wedding shoes. She settle on some amazing sparkling Saint Laurent Sandals.
Ola always wanted to have a bespoke suit made, and this was the perfect occasion. By recommendation, he chose Sartorialto for the creation of his 3 piece suit.
The Readings + Music
The 2 readings came from each favourite books. For the music, Montreal Jazz Band was a real crowd pleaser! We danced all night. And for our first song, Fly me to the Moon by Frank Sinatra, it was just completely perfect.
Atelier Carmel – she really read our minds for the flowers. Everything was perfect.
Our dear friends at Darling Delights made Gabrielle’s favourite : champagne and strawberry cake with a white chocolate ganache. A small cake and lots of mini cupcakes was covering a nicely plated table with flowers.
We found Micheal through his online journal. We instantly LOVED his style; timeless, romantic and true. We are so happy with all the photographs from the wedding and the engagement session.
Since Ola’s family is from Sweden and we had so many friends from out of the country, we took a delayed honeymoon to Mexico in January 2017. We were glad to wait for winter to espace the cold weather and enjoyed the rest of the summer with our family and friends.
Most Memorable Moments
The whole day! It does go so quick and we really tried to take it all in. But i remember when we left the venue, in the middle of the night, in the car we just started laughing and said : We did it!
What happened that wasn’t planned?
On the morning of the wedding, Ola drove to the Ritz Carlton where we stayed for the weekend to drop the luggages. He ended up having a flat tyre that almost made him late for the car pickup!
Advice for Other Couples
Let go of everything, just enjoy it all!
