Happy Wedding Wednesday!
Have I got a feast for your wedding-loving eyes! This charming wedding is full of one delightful surprise after another- an original First Look, a tiny owl (yes, an owl!!!) ring bearer, a beautiful teepee ceremony, and much, much more. Bonnallie Brodeur shows us the beauty:
Violaine & Gaetan got married on July 27 in Quebec, Canada at Haut Bois Normand. The cozy sugar shack is located on a 10,000-tree maple bush situated on mountainous land, just perfect for the nature-loving couple. They adore animals & color too, both of which were infused into their unique wedding.
The wedding day started with a cool First Look by the lake. The Bride, wearing a flowing white wedding gown & sweet floral crown, waited for her Groom on a wooden dock. Leaving from the opposite shore, the Groom rowed his way over to her in a red canoe flying a pirate flag. The anticipation built as they spied each other across the water. When they triumphantly met on the dock, they sealed the moment with a kiss!
The outdoor ceremony took place in a green clearing, marked by a lovely white teepee & bright rainbow tassels. A little owl with bright yellow eyes was perched on the Groom's hand throughout the ceremony, where he adorably guarded the wedding rings. Surrounded by their family & friends seated on simple wooden benches, the Bride & Groom became husband & wife during an emotional ceremony.
A great party followed at a warm, welcoming reception. The rustic space was decorated with family wedding photos, white cafe lights, and long, wooden tables decorated with clusters of flowers, feather place settings & tiny animal figurines. The delicious dinner was served family-style with generous sides of good conversation & merry laughter. What a tremendous wedding!
My Favorite Moment: The lakeside First Look complete with a pirate canoe & weathered dock. SO fun!
My Favorite Detail: It was very, very hard to choose, but how could I resist picking that cute owl ring bearer?
Congratulations, Violaine & Gaetan!
