When Covid-19 lockdown measures forced Kevin Rodrigue and Jimmy Doucet into quarantine, they, like so many others, ended up spending a lot of time online — but, in their case, it was to plan a wedding.
Rodrigue and Doucet, who had met in 2016 and got engaged a year later, had originally planned their wedding for June 2021 — exactly five years after their first date. So in early 2020, during early quarantine measures, Rodrigue says the couple hunkered down over their Pinterest boards. “We did a lot of online shopping, like everyone else, but for us it was for a wedding,” Rodrigue says. “It was actually a lot of fun.”
The couple’s wedding, which took place in September of this year at L'Auberge du Lac Saint-Pierre in Trois-Rivières, Quebec, was an opulent, high-style affair, featuring a mirrored archway, a champagne tower, and elegant, dried florals. Rodrigue and Doucet chose a black-and-white theme, which extended from their jackets — complementary black-and-white floral numbers — all the way to their cake: a two-tier, marbled confection from Montreal’s Bayard Gateaux.
And because the wedding was smaller than originally planned — but the couple had already rented a large sailcloth tent for their outdoor ceremony — they had to do some creative pivoting, to make use of the space. “We ended up turning part of the tent into a lounge,” Rodrigue says. “In the end it was kind of perfect.”
