I can’t believe the 2013 wedding season has officially started. After cleaning our gear, charging all our batteries and packing the car, Magda and I were off to a fairytale winter wedding east of Montreal.
Veronique and JC first came by our office back in April of 2012 I think? Sharply dressed with incredibly organized folders in hand, they both charmed us right away with their personalities! They knew exactly what they wanted. A beautiful wedding with their closest friends and family at a place full of character. That’s where Manoir Hovey comes in! Inspired by George Washington’s home, this turn of the century upscale retreat was the perfect place for Veronique and JC. What made it even more magical was that they decided to have their wedding smack dab in the middle of winter…which is always a risky choice! However, everything aligned for them, and out of the 2-3 days a year where the snow is as perfect as in a hollywood movie…they got one of them.
We don’t even have the words to describe what the weather was like. Snowflakes as big as frisbees were slowly settling on branches, there was barely any wind and the temperature was absolutely perfect. They couldn’t have picked a better day, it was magical!
They picked an adorable little church to have their ceremony in, with an equally adorable priest to officiate the marriage! Magda and I then took Veronique and JC on a very quiet but beautiful photo session nearby Manoir Hovey. The air was still and it felt like we had everything to ourselves as our canvas. A warmer winter day makes quite a difference for the bride who usually has uncovered shoulders! We have nothing but gratitude for Veronique and JC for being especially awesome at working every photo opportunity. I don’t think there was a moment when Veronique didn’t smile when she looked at JC. An undeniable connection between them made for some very intimate moments…and they’re both quite easy on the eyes too!
The food was unbelievable. Matched perfectly with wine, the party moved from room to room making use of all the wonderful interiors Manoir Hovey has to offer. I could go on and on about the wonderful time everyone had that night but I think I’ll leave it off here and let the photos do the rest of the talking! Veronique and JC, thank you for having us with you on one of the most important days of your lives. It means the world to us and we hope you love your photos as much as we do!
