Bella and Edward Only Wish They’d Gotten Married in This Gorgeous Twilight Inspired Wedding in Quebec

September 23, 2019 | brooke

“I like the night. Without the dark, we’d never see the stars.” Anyone else already catching major Bella-and-Edward-style feels for Chloe and Dany’s gorgeous Twilight inspired wedding?! There’s no denying these two had a vision for their attire; just look at how flawless Chloe looked in her custom, bell-sleeved Le Chateau dress and floral-covered Fumile Chapelier hat. We also are cheers-ing to their vision for a vintage, boho twist on the day — complete with the most incredible handmade ceremony arch, dreamy lounge seating, and long harvest tables all styled and provided by Le Coeur Boheme. There’s even more goodness to this Twilight inspired wedding day, including breathtaking florals by Kyoto Fleurs, a delicious looking cake and dessert table by Little Leah’s Kitchen, and Le Smoking BBQ‘s adorable camper food truck, all captured by the talented Valerie Gay Bessette!

The Wedding:

Golf L’oasis, Brownsburg Chatam, QC

Our inspiration was the wedding of Edward and Bella in Twilight. This amazing vibe with a lot of flowers, in the forest, a little bit dark, that was exactly was we were expected but with our own touch of course! I’m a bohemian at heart and my husband really love the vintage twist! I think at the end it makes a great fit!

Because I like to stand out and that I don’t like to do like anyone else, I decided to get married with a hat and no veil. It was fitting better with the boho vibes I wanted and Kyoto Fleurs added a few flowers to my hat to make it even better. For my dress, because I was pregnant, I had the chance to collaborate with Le Château who made a custom dress just for me. I wanted to have long and big sleeves and the designer did such a great job! I totally fell in love with this unique and amazing lace dress to show my little 26 weeks baby bump!

There was so many little moments that makes this day memorable. Like the first look with my dad. Such an amazing idea. I was seeing myself as a little girl, a little daddy’s girl, who needed the approval of her dad to continue by her own and now walked hand-in-hand with the man of her life.

The hidden vows photo means so much. Because I didn’t have the chance to see his reaction in the meantime, it’s good to see him smiling and crying while I’m reading him the vows, to see our connection, our love in our eyes even if we don’t see each other, it’s so powerful and meaningful!

We included the sand ceremony to unite our family. Being pregnant was a real sign of life for us because we lost one child by miscarriage between our two little girls. Being pregnant at our wedding was the best feeling and was so significant for us. The sand ceremony was the perfect moment to unite our family forever!

I’ve been working with Valerie for now more than 4 years. She’s always been there for every moment, the good and the bad. So it was a perfect moment to have her not only as a photographer, but at first as a friend, part of our family!

I discovered Le Coeur Boheme planning this special day. They truly stand out — while it was over 35 degrees (95 degrees Fahrenheit) outside, and they put together everything to make it even better than our expectations. Every details was there and even more. They did such an amazing job and this day was a real success and was even more magical because of them, because of their work, because of everything they did!

We decided to give our guests candles with a raw smells for them to reminder the wedding in the woods while burning it!

For my second look, I didn’t wanted my dress to be in my foot all night long so I opt for a shorter one, but still in the boho vibes with the sleeves and also the lace. I decided to take of the hat, go darker for the makeup because it was the night and the hairstylist did an amazing braid on the back! Also, for my two looks, it’s important to mention that everything’s was made here in Montreal. The dresses by Le Château are made here, also my earrings were custom made by This Ilk and the hat is also custom by Fumile! I was really proud to wear ”Made in Montreal” pieces to encourage local brands!

This Free-Spirited Uluwatu Surf Villas Wedding in Bali is Totally Eco-Friendly

September 22, 2019 | brooke

Let’s say it together: Eco-friendly wedding. Yeah, we’re in love with this concept! Amanda and David’s free-spirited Uluwatu Surf Villas wedding has us embracing our inner adventurer. This couple’s goal was to keep their destination wedding weekend as simple as possible. All of the beautiful greenery Florette Bali used was locally sourced, as was delicious-looking food from Mana — and you won’t see any plastic used at this Uluwatu Surf Villas wedding! We’re also swooning over Amanda’s whimsical, blush Berta gown, and David’s attire from Zara that is so on-point with those surfer groom vibes. Shout out to adventurous photographer Melissa Gayle Photography for capturing all the goodness of these babes’ destination wedding day!

The Couple:

Amanda & David

The Wedding:

Uluwatu Surf Villas, Bali, Indonesia

The most memorable parts of the day were the brief moments we snuck in for ourselves to just breathe, take it all in, and realize how lucky we are – to have found each other in this world, and to be spending this day in the most special place with the most wonderful people.

We are pretty relaxed people and I think our day really reflected that. We didn’t worry too much about the things you are “supposed” to do and just did things that brought us joy. The boys went surfing all morning day of and I was in the pool until about 2 hours before the ceremony. In terms of planning, we kept it as simple as possible. Locally sourced greenery for all floral arrangements, local food. No single use plastic products, and the groom made all the playlists for the day himself. We took the time to enjoy every moment and didn’t let anything get in the way of that.

We always knew from day one that photos and capturing the day was something that was really important to us. Needless to say, as soon as we saw Melissa’s photos, we knew that she had to be a part of this Bali wedding adventure. The caliber of her work is nothing short of breathtaking. She is absolutely an adventurer herself (she had no qualms about bringing her 18 month old halfway around the world!) and I think that really comes across in an organic way in her work. Having her behind the camera is like shooting with a friend. My wedding photo delivery was above and beyond. I can’t thank her enough!

Since our wedding was quite a trek for all of our guests, it was really important to us that everyone take off whatever time they could and make a vacation out of the whole journey. We wanted people to come together for our wedding, and then venture off on their own adventures around southeast Asia and around the world! People never take enough time for themselves so we really wanted to provide an opportunity for our guests to live their best lives. Traveling is a huge part of our lives and it was a truly inexplicable experience to be able to share that with our closest friends and family.
