Aujourd’hui, je vous propose de découvrir le mariage intime de Lisa & Simon photographié par la charmante Sadie de l’orangerie photographie. Je suis vraiment contente de publier son travail pour la première fois sur le blogue car après avoir découvert son travail à travers cette photo publiée sur le compte instagram de l’hôtel le St-Sulpice.
Ce mariage est rempli d’humour et d’amour… et j’ai un petit coup de coeur pour la situation car j’ai habité coin St-Dominique et Des Pins durant mes années de vie à Montréal. Je passais donc presque quotidiennement devant le Restaurant Laloux et l’église où a été célébrée ce mariage.
Je vous laisse donc découvrir l’histoire d’amour de Lisa & Simon.
Lisa: What do you love about me?
Simon: You know what I love about you. I’ve told you.
Lisa (smiling): Tell me again.
Simon: You’re beautiful, smart and funny.
Lisa: That’s boring. Those are stereotypical responses!
Simon: But they’re TRUE!
Lisa: I love you because you’re stupid. And handsome.
Un peu… We met at work! We were both working on the same project at Ubisoft. We would work together on two more projects before our romance really began, though. Simon won me over by being funny and crude, something he was extraordinarily good at despite stiff competition, working in a video game company full of boys. Ha ha!
Beaucoup… We started dating in 2011 and tied the knot on May 31st 2014. In our years together, we’ve traveled near and far… Simon introduced me to the beautiful countryside of my own province and I was able to show Simon my favourite parts of big cities like New York and Chicago.
Passionnément… Our wedding happened in two parts, actually. We decided to have a small wedding of about 25 people but then throw a big BBQ at Simon’s parent’s house in the forest with our friends and some extended family. It really was a fun way to keep the party going and not to end up spending thousands of dollars on just one day.
Mais surtout à la folie… We got married at St. Boniface Church by Father Gerry Westphal, which was very special as I’ve known him since I was a toddler. Our reception was at Restaurant Laloux which just happened to be down the street from the church. We absolutely LOVED the private room full of vintage teak furniture and the food was simply to die for; we were able to discuss the menu in detail before the day and we couldn’t have been happier with the food and service at Laloux. Having the ceremony and supper so close allowed us to have the wedding in the late afternoon and then take photos around St. Louis Square and in some classic Montreal alleys. We prepared two playlists of music, once for dinner and one for dancing but we ended up eating and drinking and socializing for the whole evening! It was past midnight when we realized, “Hey, we never got to the dancing!” Nor did we even do our first dance! And we were so proud to have picked a Cyndi Lauper hit as our song…
On est crazy… de l’idée de faire un mariage en petit comité sans se prendre la tête !

Ask our guests but we are pretty sure it was the best wedding cake… nay, best CAKE ever) // Maquillage de la mariée et de la maman de la mariée par Lourdes de chez Mary Kay // Coiffure par Alain du Studio Kennedy // Robe de la mariée par Bridalane (my wedding dress was actually a bridesmaids’ dress in ivory so I’m proud to tell people that it was FAR less pricey than any sort of more traditional wedding dress! Also, I bought it off the rack, no ordering months in advance!) // Fleurs par Fleuriste Chez Daniel (Our beautiful flowers were by Fleuriste Chez Daniel at Jean-Talon Market, which is where Simon has always bought flowers for me) // Lieu de cérémonie par St. Boniface Church // Lieu de réception par Restaurant Laloux.
