bride and groom at Mont Tremblant Grand Manitou summit

A wedding at Grand Manitou Mont Tremblant summit and chapelle St-Bernard

Cynthia and Luc’s wedding reception was at the Grand Manitou Mont-Tremblant summit this summer. It was a hot but beautiful day. The views at the top of the mountain were STUNNING! I’ve never seen something quite like this before : mountains everywhere. But first things first haha… they got ready separately at Sommet des Neiges in the pedestrian village of Mont-Tremblant. The bride and groom were so happy, surrounded with their family and good friends. Living in Florida, it was actually the first time I met with them on their wedding day!

The Chapelle Saint-Bernard

Cynthia and Luc were really looking forward for their big day. Luc, a native of Quebec city, moved years ago in Florida. The couple fell in love in 2012 after Cynthia moved in Luc’s neighborhood in Boynton Beach. They hung out several time before quickly falling in love with each other. Both of them enjoy life and love the outdoors! After seeing the beauty of the Laurentians and realizing it was both English/French they knew it was going to be perfect. They wanted to get married in Mont-Tremblant at the top of the mountain! But before that, they had to find a church. And they did when they fell in love (again) with the Chapelle Saint-Bernard!

Hotel Quintessence in Mont-Tremblant

After the beautiful ceremony, we took a few pictures in front of the chapel. We went on to go at Hotel Quintessence which is located a few minutes away from the church (by walk). They were so nice to let us take pictures besides lake Tremblant. It started pouring rain, we went inside the hotel and saw the wonderful staircase at the entrance! There was no way I was going to leave without taking a few photos!

Grand Manitou at Mont Tremblant summit

Cocktail time was great with the terrace overlooking the village. We left the hotel and took the cable car to go on Tremblant’s summit. The VIEWS! What’s to say about the views? They were INCREDIBLE! Breathtaking views on the Laurentians! So beautiful! I almost went nuts hahaha! When arriving at the Grand Manitou, we took a few photos with guests and families. Cynthia and Luc were so nice and trusted me when I told them we needed to take some more pictures of them alone. After all, the day belongs to them! And how about those memories we’ve created! I will never forget that day. The light, the newlyweds, the mountains. Such perfection! And shout out to Luc’s brothers for being so helpful! They were chasing flies away from me when we were on top of Tremblant haha! They got out before sunset and were really loving me (the flies)!

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 Laurentians wedding at Hotel Mont Gabriel – V + E

Newlyweds at the top of Mont Gabriel

Edwin and Victoria got married at Hotel Mont Gabriel, last October, on a rainy day. Nevermind the weather, the colors were beginning and it was beautiful! Fall was in full bloom! After meeting in a bar in Ontario a year and a half before the big day, they fell madly in love. They decided to get married here in Quebec, especially in the Laurentians where guests could stay overnight. Friends and family were coming from Ontario (where Victoria is originally from) and from Quebec’ province (Ed is from Montreal). Everything was taking place at Hotel Mont Gabriel : the getting ready part, the ceremony, formals and dinner. The couple flew from Alberta a few days earlier after getting stocked in a mountain snow storm! They were trapped on a highway for 9 hours. How crazy is that?

After the touching ceremony, celebrated by Victoria’s sister (who was very pregnant), we went outside in a hurry, to get the pictures done. It began to rain again, but only small drops. We did a few pictures with the bridal party and the bride and groom’s moms. We then got into a cart to go around the Hotel Mont Gabriel. There are a lot of beautiful spots there, especially around the bridge. We finished on top of the mountain with fog all around us. It was like being in a dream with beautiful views!

The bride and groom were so patient. Never complained about the rain or the cold during the formals. We got back before the end of cocktail hour. That gave me time to take pictures of the St-Andrews hall and the wedding decor. My day ended after the first dance with sparklers outside the hotel. I guess the night was only beginning for the newlyweds and their guests!
