It was an incredibly hot and steamy summer day, and we were off to a little quaint town of Saint-Antoine-sur-Richelieu just North-East of Montreal! Immediately we were taken by the beautiful old little towns along the river and thought how unique that Annick and Esaïe chose to show their guests this part of Quebec.
We arrived at Château Saint-Antoine where the wedding reception was going to take place and were greeted with warm hugs by Annick and Esaïe’s amazing families! The ceremony at Église de Saint-Antoine-de-Padoue was especially beautiful because it was led by Esaïe’s father who also played guitar along with his brother and other family members. Hearing the whole family get involved in singing so beautifully was really touching! We headed out for a dove release and then some photos right after. Like I said at the start, it was brutally hot that day and we were both very impressed with Annick, Esaïe and all the guests for how they brushed it off and had an absolute blast. Which brings me to the emotion filled dinner and then the amazing dancing!
Annick and Esaïe’s families just have it in them when it comes to dancing and having a good time. We got goosebumps when everyone started dancing in unison to a beautiful beat with arms high in the air. We were told that this is a traditional Rwandan dance paying homage to cattle and the arms in the air symbolize their beautiful horns! We were in awe at the gorgeous moves and smiles everyone had and wished we could join in.
Annick and Esaïe, we thank you very much for having us be a part of your day and we wish you all the best in your new married life together! Below you can find our favourite images from the day…
