Real Weddings

A Chic French Wedding in Montreal, Quebec

  |   By Alison McGill

"Navy blue and ivory were our wedding colours," explains Caroline. "We wanted a day that felt classic, elegant and French-inspired. Our beautiful and historic venues for the ceremony and reception set the tone for our wedding party. Our favours from La Maison du Macaron were some of my best wedding details—they were delicious, and I loved that I could personalize the packaging with our colours and initials."

"Our day was full of so many incredible moments. I would have to say my favourite one was when David and I exchanged our marriage vows. I will never forget the way he looked at me. My heart was melting!" exclaims the bride.

"I was very fortunate to have one of the world’s best makeup artists for my wedding day. I am the communications leader for L’Oréal Paris, and I was thrilled to have Eddie Malter, the official Canadian makeup artist for L’Oréal Paris, do the makeup for my mother and myself. My mom had never had her makeup done by a professional before so she was thrilled—and she looked absolutely stunning, of course," says Caroline.

"The song we chose as our wedding song was so 'us.' David and I fell in love very quickly and moved in together early in our relationship. We both were so in love and wanted to dive into everything. Our first dance song was 'Can’t Help Falling in Love' by Ingrid Michaelson because it summed up our relationship so perfectly. Our dance was an elaborate number that we choreographed and rehearsed—it even included lifts!" explains Caroline.

"Our honeymoon was just as incredible as our wedding day," says Caroline. "We went to Bali and rented two different private villas in two different areas, and it couldn’t have been more romantic. We enjoyed incredible spa treatments, food, culture and beautiful sunsets. It was absolutely amazing!"
