Alyssa and Dan planned a traditional wedding at the gorgeous Ritz Carlton Hotel in downtown Montreal. The ballroom was perfect for their vision of a grand celebration. They started the day with first looks at the hotel before heading out to get some photos on Sherbrooke Street. Despite a bit of rain, Alyssa, Dan and their Wedding party had a great time posing for pictures in the city!
Alyssa was glamorous in her lace mermaid-cut gown with its delicate sweep train and satin belt and her bouquet was an absolute stunner in shades of purple and lavender with calla lilies, wildflowers and plenty of greenery. She finished her look with a classic updo accented with baby’s breath, an amethyst cocktail ring and large vintage-inspired beaded earrings for added glamour. Dan’s classic three piece suit with its double breasted vest was perfect for a luxurious wedding celebration.
The purple color scheme carried through to the reception decor where fabulous florals were the focus. Palaenopsis orchids, allium and roses made up the shorter centerpieces and tall arrangements of baby’s breath hung like fluffy white clouds over the tables. Glass chargers with gold accents and mini succulent place card holders completed the tablescapes and Alyssa and Dan’s guests were given personalized candles as wedding favors. Their wedding cake was a violet stunner with its ombre icing design, as beautiful as it was delicious. Once it was cut, and the rain abated, Alyssa and Dan got a chance to snap goodnight photos on the balcony with their guests. Congratulations Alyssa and Dan!
