Urban wedding theme
This Montréal couple said their “I do’s” at the beautiful Église Notre-Dame-des-Sept-Douleurs in Verdun on June 13, 2015, photographed by Lindsay Muciy Photography. The church’s grand architecture and natural aesthetic remained unscathed for the ceremony apart from a few candles and floral arrangements set up throughout. What made the setting even more authentic was the sound of a wonderful choir made up of the bride and groom’s siblings. Every reading was picked carefully, but special attention was put on one from Khalil Gibran’s book The Prophet.
The Espace Canal (Restaurant L’Ambroisie) offered the newlyweds and their guests a place to enjoy a drink on the terrace and soak in the beautiful weather from the view of the Lachine Canal for an urban Montreal wedding. The theme for the décor was water with a minimalist approach, with every inch put together by the bride and groom. Watercolors were used in the invites, whitewashed wood pieces or ripple effect plates were set at each table, and table numbers were made up of chapters and citations from the same book, The Prophet, read in the ceremony. Its chapter on marriage had a citation with relevance to water, so it was used as the backdrop for the photo booth and the favours given out to the guests were dragée’s which resembled pebbles.
