We asked Myriam to tell us about the big day….
“We have been together for 10 years and we are proud parents of two young children : a 5 year old and a 3 year old. Our marriage was intended as a celebration of our relationship but also of our little family which we are so proud of. We wanted to demonstrate through this important event, the pride of our accomplishments and our love of the past decade. I dreamed of a rather intimate wedding (80 people), where relatives and friends could celebrate with us with ease, on a beautiful summer day.
So, I chose an urban/chic environment in Old Montreal. I knew that the pictures would be beautiful. The splendid terrace of L’Autre Version restaurant on St-Paul Street was just perfect for a nice intimate outdoor ceremony. We just had to add a few flowers, lanterns and candles to match the vineyards and stone walls. A few tables and sofas then allowed us to enjoy the place during the whole cocktail hour before dinner. Cake and dessert were even served on the terrace in the warm evening. The chic decor and elegant interior of the restaurant with its chandeliers and stone walls was just perfect for the desired atmosphere. The flower centerpieces were so elegant. A refined food was served for the pleasure of the guests before giving way to the dance. This sunny day was just perfect!
Projects designed by us are (DIY): We made our love story of the last 10 years on a large slate placed on the terrace. We created a card for every table with a year from 2005 to 2015 and the highlight of each year. We also had a bunch of balloons from a family picture so that the guests put their fingerprint on. We also had custom gloss for all the girls and a Photo Booth for formal photo memories of each couple and fun photos that we printed and sent to all our guests with their thank you card.”
Thanks so much to Myriam & Etienne for allowing us to share their wedding, and to Sophie Asselin for the photographs.
