Wonderful Wedding in Canada | Cindy & Xavier

By Eleni Balkouli @Love4Wed

Cindy and Xavier sealed their love with a wonderful summer wedding in Canada! Because of their different preferences, their wedding was full of contradictions blended so beautifully, that they created an unusual yet amazing experience. Xavier wanted a traditional wedding with a Catholic ceremony, but Cindy wanted freedom, a ceremony outside in the nature. So, they did both! Firstly, they had a traditional wedding in the grand Notre-Dame Cathedral and after they exchanged vows in front of the Silo No. 5 building and the greenery trees. The following reception was pure perfection with the hanging plants, the wooden rentals and the many colorful flower bouquets. Enjoy a unique wedding with lot of extremes that turned out as a success!

From the bride: “Xavier wanted a wedding that was very traditional, and I wanted freedom and non-conformity. He wanted a Catholic ceremony in the grand Notre-Dame Cathedral, a block away from his condo in old Montreal. I wanted to be outside somewhere in a place that belongs to everyone, that excludes no one, speaking words that came from our own hearts.”

“Our planner needed to reconcile a lot of extremes and pull together a gorgeous, cohesive design from many disparate elements. Elyna Kudish shares my rebellious spirit and knows how to bring about an eclectic, unusual design that feels totally magical and unique, with all the elegance of a more traditional setup. Our wedding design was full of contradictions that blended beautifully.”

“We had our traditional Catholic cathedral ceremony in the Notre Dame Basilica, and then walked through the cobbled streets of old Montreal. The girls hopped in a horse-drawn calèche, arriving to exchange non-denominational vows in front of the iconic Silo no. 5 as the electric string Bolero Trio played in the background.”

“Our reception brought the outside inside. The modern hall of the Montreal Science Center was filled with hanging plants and massive, juicy bouquets from Atelier Carmel. Our phenomenal caterer Franca Mazza served up a cocktail with hors d’oeuvres celebrating the flavors of Vietnam, Spain and Canada. Our soup course came out in playful teacups. Homemade truffle ravioli, sustainable sea bass and charlevoix filet were served on blue and white china, a nod to Quebec’s Fête Nationale.”

“The centerpiece was a huge colourful and delicious cake by Yuki Bakery, in honor of Pride, a reminder that love is love and everyone should be free to marry.”
