Dorota + Fred | Montreal, QC

When Dorota and Fred first described the wedding they were planning, they mentioned that they wanted it to be inspired by the 1920s. Many couples incorporate nods to different time periods into their wedding decor, so while we knew their venue (the Lion D’Or cabaret club) would be a good setting for this theme, we didn’t think too much of it until their wedding day… Oh how we underestimated them!

Walking into the Lion d’Or on the wedding day was truly like taking a step back in time. From the feather centerpieces (Azar of Principal Planner once again knocked our socks off with the decor) to the swing band that kept the guests on their feet all night, no detail was overlooked.

The cabaret club was the perfect old fashioned host (we even saw an old “menu” back stage, from the venue’s former life as a brothel) and it is safe to say that this themed affair did it justice.

Dorota and Fred, we just love how you took your passion for old cinema and made it come to life for your special day. It was – and you were – an absolute blast for us to capture.

    I was blown out on how you put your subjects. Even on the dance floor the photos really shows how good the lensman is.

Sheri + Ryan | Montreal, QC

The majority of the weddings we photograph are destination weddings, and Sheri and Ryan’s Montreal wedding – despite the fact that it was held in the city we call home – was no exception. Like many people who have visited our lovely city, Sheri and Ryan both fell in love with the European architecture and the incredible food and they wanted to share it with their friends and family during their wedding weekend.

We loved learning more about Sheri and Ryan through the choices they made for their wedding. They held both the ceremony and reception at Barroco, a Spanish restaurant in the heart of old Montreal. The food and flair of the restaurant – as well as the papel picado they draped around the room – was a nod to a trip they took to Spain. In honor of their precious bunny Chloe, they made a donation to the Rabbit Rescue in Vancouver as wedding favors for their guests. And of course, the impecable menu complete with paella, oysters and lobster (hands down one of the best wedding meals we’ve ever had), was a testament to their excellent taste in food.

Thank you, Sheri and Ryan, for allowing us to share in your sweet wedding. And thank you for treating us to a much anticipated and dreamt about dinner at Garde-Manger! We look forward to a date night there very soon!
