I have had the privilege of working with Bianca and Andy in designing their Montreal Destination Wedding for the past year and it all came together in a very romantic elegant affair at the Windsor Ballrooms on a very special day of July 2nd.. not because it was Canada weekend, but because Chris and I were also married on the 2nd July – so of course another match made in heaven!
Bianca and Andy both live in Winnipeg so we planned and worked together at a distance with Bianca coming to Montreal every few months and I ensured we maximized her visits with vendor selections, tastings and design meetings!
With Bianca’s family coming from Haiti and Andy’s family from India, it was great to bring in some cultural & spiritual elements especially during the ceremony where they honored their grandparents who were no longer with us!
As guest took their seats for dinner the room glowed in subtle gold, from the high floral centre pieces that were natural earth tones with a touch of soft pink through to the Organza overlays which were adorned in gold sequined flowers – perfectly matched with the Bridemaids who wore Bronze/Gold colored dresses and the MoH (Maid of Honor) in a Dusky Pink dress.
After dinner the bride made a surprise entrance in a stunning Indian dress escorted by an all Male Indian Dance group who came in from Toronto to entertain the guests – it certainly sent a buzz around the room and kicked off the party!
Another nice touch was the wedding favors which were given out to each guest personally by the Bridesmaids just after dinner, while I played ‘reporter’ with the Videographer getting great video stories from each of the guests to add to Bianca & Andy’s memories of a perfect day….
