A STUNNER BALZAC DISTILLERY DISTRICT WEDDING

Written by Jessica - Posted April 13th - Photographs by A Brit & A Blonde

This delightful Distillery District wedding has all the gorgeous and all the feels. Liz & Gord chose to say their I do’s at the St James Cathedrale in the heart of downtown Toronto – since they actually met at the dog park which is right next door. These two are big time dog lovers – so it is quite fitting that it was their dogs that actually brought them together. They were each out strolling and walking their own dog at the park and just like that they met – ah puppy love! The four legged matchmakers of course were on hand during the ceremony and for a few photos following – afterall the big day would not have been if not for them.

The cocktail style reception took place at the loveliest of lovely coffee houses – Balzac’s in the Distillery District. With 50 of their nearest and dearest it was a marvellously intimate and gorgetastic wedding. Guests enjoyed the wonderful patio for a few drinks and deliciously yummy passed apps by Presidential Gourmet and moved inside for the first dance and to hear the fab band play. What a perfect venue for a wedding – Balzac’s looks so great that all you need to do is add your guests. No need for major decor – it is perfectly perfect just the way it is. It was actually built in 1895 as a Pump House and now has been transformed into a grande Parisian style cafe. And with the backdrop of the Distillery District at your doorstep that is just the cherry on top. Certainly one of Toronto’s unique wedding venues.

Liz & Gord – you guys are beautiful inside and out – massive congrats on your new arrival!

NOTRE DAME BASILICA & LE WINDSOR WEDDING IN MONTREAL OOH LA LA

Written by Jessica - Posted January 23rd - Photographs by A Brit & A Blonde

As some of you may know – I grew up in Montreal. Oui, oui mes amies. Yes it is the land of hockey & poutine. But Montreal is also super chic and has such a rich heritage and incredible architecture. Most notably of course in Old Montreal – which acted as the backdrop for Maya & Ross’s wedding ceremony and portraits. Magnifique!

The wedding ceremony itself took place at the Notre Dame Basilica – an unbelievably stunning place for your I do’s. A gothic inspired church that was built in the 1600’s. It also happened to be the spot where world famous Montrealer Celine Dion said her I do’s in 1994. It was an amazing spot to shoot – no shortage of inspiration that’s for sure.

Following the ceremony we took Maya & Ross around Old Montreal for their photos – I think we could have kept shooting all day and night – so many fun lil nooks & crannies and alleyways and passages leading to more awesome at every turn. But alas they did need to make it back to join their guests for the big reception bash at Le Windsor.

And what a party it was! Incorporating Maya’s Lebanese & Ross’s Algerian backgrounds – the traditions and festivities were such fun – every one of their guests was dancing up a storm. They also had a bellydancer put on a spectacular show during the reception.

Montreal je t’aime!
