I really don’t know where to start because we are so excited about this wedding. Firstly, it’s Magda and I’s first wedding of 2011 which in itself is something that we should celebrate with an abundance of champagne but there are a ton of other reasons why we couldn’t wait to shoot it. Nardia and Mike are probably two of the most genuine and loving people we have ever met. They have this honest sincerity and incredibly kind hearts that is really humbling. When they first came by our home to meet with us we immediately fell in love with Nardia’s infectious smile and positivity and Mike’s adorable shyness and curiosity.
The day started off at Montreal’s Aveda Salon and Spa which was pretty cool for Magda because she is very familiar with the place and staff as she gets her hair done there as well! Another reason to get excited about was the fact that they chose to get married at the fascinating Chapelle Ste Agnès vineyard in Sutton, Quebec just about two hours away from Montreal. We have never been there so it was quite a sight for our eyes to see the beautiful rolling hills, quiet streets and of course the vineyard itself. It was built in 1993 by Henrietta Antony who is an incredible woman. This place has been a labour of love for her for many years, as well as owning one of the biggest (if not the biggest) antique stores in Westmount in Montreal (visit www.henrietta-antony.com if you don’t believe me!). Talking to her was one our highlights of the day and we would have happily went into the wee hours of the morning just listening to her history, but we had a beautiful wedding to shoot!
We wish Nardia and Mike the most wonderful life together and we leave you with a handful of our favourite photos we shot during the day. Be sure to play the slideshow at the bottom of the post to see even more!
