I had the pleasure of meeting Isabelle and Jérôme two years ago at the wedding of Isabelle’s Sister Nathalie. At their wedding I took a great photo of Isabelle and Jérôme, and it’s still one of my favourites (can you tell why I nicknamed her “Demi”? 🙂
Fast forward to this weekend, and I had the great pleasure of photographing them as they celebrate their marriage in old Quebec City. Their reception was held at the Auberge St-Antoine, an elegant hotel overlooking the St Lawrence river.
Their ceremony was held at the Notre-Dame-des-Victoires, a church whose construction began in 1687. As soon as I walked into the church and saw the model ship hanging from the ceiling (you can see it in the third image below), I was hit with a wave of nostalgia …way back in grade 7, I took a school trip to Quebec City, and part of that trip was a walking tour of Old Quebec. The ship hanging from the the ceiling made an impression I guess, since it brought the whole trip back.
Then we played around in Old Quebec, despite the rain and very strong winds (Isabelle, you are a trooper!)
Then it was back to the Auberge St-Antoine. This hotel is actually made up of a series of historic buildings linked together, yet maintaining their independent personalities. You’ll see the variety of rooms below.
A fabulous wedding for a fabulous couple!
