I’ve been reluctant to post another winter wedding because it seems like people are really over the winter season here in Montreal. They’ve had enough of the cold and the slush and the below zero temperatures and can’t wait for the spring to arrive. I don’t blame them, but I was worried another winter wedding post might just create more negative emotions.
When I posted Kelley and Banjamin’s winter wedding at auberge du lac taureau a little while back people were still feeling good about the cold. Let me rephrase…people were feeling okay about the cold. We were dealing with it, you know? And let’s admit it – deep down inside every Canadian is a sense of pride in knowing we can survive these crazy winters. There is a part of us that loves to cozy up inside during a winter storm. To hit up a warm and hearty bring-your-own-wine restaurant and warm yourself from the inside out. (For my international followers: There are restaurants here in Montreal where you get to just bring your own wine. No fuss, no corking fee…just a bottle and a smile. I know. Why do you think I’ve been here for so long?!)
I digress as usual. This post isn’t about the winter or the wine – it’s about the wedding.
In the middle of this brutal winter, we did have a few days of reprieve. Luckily, with Christian and Bianca’s wedding fell on one of those days. (Let’s not kid ourselves, though, even it was freezing I still would have forced the whole wedding party to go outside.)
I will say one thing, and we can fight about it if you like: People from Alberta and Saskatchewan are simply a lot tougher in cold weather. And to all of my wonderful followers from Quebec? I still love you guys…. you just complain more 😉 A lot more 😉 That’s not saying I’m any tougher. I’m the biggest baby when it comes to my precious fingers freezing.
I was really excited for this wedding because Bianca and Christian are absolutely and undeniably adorable in literally every single way. They’re the couple that just seems so perfect it makes you a little suspicious, but they also show me what love really is. (Oh my god – that was cheesy. You see the power they have? What’s happening to me?!)
I was also excited because I was going to get to work with some of my favourite vendors in the city. Some of us started our footprint in the Quebec wedding industry around the same time. I have a huge amount of respect for the work they do and as always, the links to their kick-ass companies are at the bottom of this post.

I could write about this couple for days, but I have a feeling you just want to get to the goods. Here’s Bianca and Christian.
