Rustic and vintage wedding at the Auberge Saint Gabriel

Some couples are hard to forget, couples that inspire you by their joy, complicity and love, just like Beckie and Chris. Junophoto had the chance to capture their beautiful wedding last august at the Auberge Saint Gabriel.
The day started in Beckie and Chris’s pretty apartment where Beckie, her mother and some of her dear friends were getting ready in a relaxed and joyful atmosphere. Then Chris arrived for the an emotional  first look full of tears and laughter. A first look is where the bride and groom see each other for the first time before the ceremony. The great thing about doing a first look, is it allows to the newlyweds to be present at the cocktail and enjoy their guest instead of leaving for the couple’s portrait session. The other advantage is that the moment is more intimate since it’s not in front of all the guests, perfect for brides and grooms that are a little shy.
After the first look we left for the couple’s portrait session and went to the Ritz Carlton. That venue has some meanings for Beckie that used to have her birthday brunch there when she was younger. It was one of her dreams to take pictures in the tea room for her wedding, it’s now done! Then we head to the old Montreal for more pictures to be closer the ceremony venue.
The two lovebirds got married in the Jewish tradition, under a huppa beautifully decorated by Westmoun Florist. As a matter of fact the ceremony and the reception area were decorated with elegance and with a vintage touch. The reception area was breathtaking with the flower garlands falling down from the ceiling. We shot multiple times at the Auberge St Gabriel but I have to admit we were impressed with this enchanting decor.
The reception was a cocktail party paced by the a live band, The Honey Runners. Multiple speeches and especially a lot of dancing were part of this great evening!
We wish the best to Beckie and Chris and something tells me we might see them again soon, maybe for a family shoot, who knows? 😉
