Marisa and Kamil’s elegant Old Port of Montreal wedding is modern meets old Hollywood glamour, and we can’t get enough. The couple hired expert planner Elyna Kudish who transformed the Montreal Science Center into a space full of velvet accents, romantic candlelight, extravagant white florals from Atelier Carmel, and pops of sage green. We can’t get enough of the modern marble-inspired cake from Yuki Bakery.
Photographers and Junebug members Joel & Justyna captured the essence of the day, including a romantic taxi ride to the venue and love-filled portraits on Montreal’s cobblestone streets. So, keep scrolling to see the beauty of their day because these photos are truly worth a thousand words.

A Memorable First Look
We had initially hesitated about seeing each other before the ceremony. We wanted to keep some tradition. However, we ultimately decided on doing a first look, and we are so glad that we did. It was one of the most intimate moments that we shared that day—apart from our vows, of course— the other was our first dance. We had the opportunity just to share some moments of calm with one another before things got hectic. Most of the day after that first look was a blur and seemed to pass by so quickly, so having that time before the festivities was priceless.
Why an Old Port of Montreal Wedding
Our venue was located in the Old Port of Montreal. We were both born and raised in Montreal, and the Old Port has special significance to us. We were looking for a blank canvas with lots of natural light and an open feel. Our venue provided us with an abundance of natural light throughout the ceremony and into the early evening.

The Importance of A Planner
We had the privilege of working with an amazing wedding planner, Elyna Kudish, who helped us bring our vision to life. She was there with us every step of the way. We explained our vision of a clean, elegant, modern feel that incorporated our Caribbean roots. She was able to help us bring that to fruition through the venue, decor, entertainment, and food. We couldn’t have done it without her.
