Le Grand Lodge Mont-Tremblant wedding – K + I

bride and groom at Le Grand Lodge Mont-Tremblant

Ian and Kira got married at Le Grand Lodge Mont-Tremblant last fall, on a Sunday! Why on that day particularly? Their first venue fell through about 2 months before the wedding and finding a venue for a Saturday was hard. Daniele at the Grand Lodge stepped in by accommodating the couple budgetwise and coordinating everything for them. They chose the restaurant Borivage for the reception which was beautiful with the rustic autumn-themed decor.

Ian originally from Illinois in the USA came to Montreal for work nearly six years ago. He then met Kira four years ago on the Internet. Ian and Kira took the time to get to know one another through texts and on paper, it was love at first sight! They went for a cup of tea on a hot summer day! The rest is history! Ian decided to stay here for « his sweet Canadian wife »! I gotta say that most of my couples meet online nowadays, like I did with my man, eight years ago!

The lovely couple decided on a first look in front of the Grand Lodge barn. How emotional and so beautiful! Talk about emotions.. Ian proposed in London UK, a year before the wedding, while the couple were on a three-week-long backpacking trip. At one of Kira’s favourite places in the World : Highgate West, a cemetery designed in the Victorian era! A bit creepy you would say? To her defense, the cemetery was planned like it was a big garden!

The ceremony took place in front of Lac Ouimet at Le Grand Lodge Mont-Tremblant. It was a bit cold outside, guests had blankets to protect themselves. Emotions were high when Kira and her father walked down the aisle to the Imperial March! Kira didn’t saw anyone else, all she could see was Ian up there waiting for her.

The rustic Borivage restaurant was perfect for their wedding venue. All the decorations were done by Kira herself. May I say she has a lot of talent! And how about the beautiful cake baked by Pâtisserie L’instant Gourmand? It was stunning! A perfect fit with the colour theme and with Kira’s flowers from Fleuriste St-Jovite!

A winter wedding at The Grand Lodge Mont-Tremblant

Emily and Liam got married at the Grand Lodge Mont-Tremblant a little more than 2 weeks ago on a super cold and sunny winter day. They met at Queen’s University in Ontario in 2006 and were friends before starting dating in 2008. Their relationship blossomed as they shared many of the same interests, predominantly sports and science fiction movies. A full year and three summers of long distance later, Liam (from Massachusetts USA) decided to move to Montreal where Emily was completing graduate studies. Montreal, with it’s charming character and snowy winters, was the perfect place for them to enjoy another two sports together: hockey and cross country skiing. As winter-lovers and outdoor sports enthusiasts, Liam and Emily decided to have their wedding in the Laurentians woods. The Grand Lodge Mont-Tremblant was the perfect location for them to celebrate their union with friends and families.

I started the day by taking photos of the accessories in Emily’s room to then go see the boys while they were getting dressed. After the bride and groom individual portraits, we did a first look (or a reveal) downstairs near a fireplace. What a moment it was! So full of emotions! We wanted to take advantage of the great light during wintertime and decided in advance to take photos with the couple and the bridal party, before the ceremony. It was -25C outside, so needless to say we were highly efficient! Emily was brave enough to take off her coat! I guess it helps to love winter sports!

The ceremony, so rich in emotions, took place at the hotel restaurant Borivage. The officiant was Philippe Galliache of FSEV.

The Borivage restaurant, first transformed for the ceremony, changed again during cocktail hour for the evening reception. By the time we took family pictures and went outside for the sunset, they were done with the transformation! How fast they did that still amazes me today!
