Destination Wedding in Old Montreal

Old Montreal Wedding_119Barbara and George organized their Montreal Destination Wedding all the way from Dubai! Barbara chose to have her wedding ceremony and reception at the Hotel Nelligan after reading my “Best Wedding Venues in Montreal” Blog.

Old Montreal WeddingBoth the bride and groom got ready at the hotel on a warm sunny day in early May. George and his groomsmen were able to take advantage of the unseasonably warm weather and get a drink before the ceremony at the Terrasse Nelligan on the roof of the hotel.hotel Nelligan weddingThe bride had all the room she needed in her large suite with a wide balcony and a panoramic view over the port of Old Montreal. We were able to stay out of sight and do all the photos on the balcony while the guests began to gather downstairs for the ceremony.Old Montreal Wedding_108aOld Montreal Wedding_106Barbara’s dress suited her perfectly. It also had an illusion neckline- which I love. The colour of the bridesmaids’ dresses added a pop of colour to the grey stone buildings of Old Montreal. A great choice for a spring wedding! (for more tips see my blog on Spring Weddings).Old Montreal Wedding_105Old Montreal Wedding_107The ceremony was held in a cozy room at the Hotel Nelligan. The candlelight and chandeliers accented the exposed brick and stone to create an intimate setting for their wedding ceremony.Old Montreal Wedding_109After the ceremony, the bride and groom stepped out of the hotel and into the streets of Old Montreal for their photos. We also had time to do some fun shots with the bridal party. One of the reasons that the Hotel Nelligan is a great choice for a wedding is that it’s located so close to all the best places for wedding photos. (Less traveling = more time for photos or more time with your guests.)Nelligan Hotel WeddingWedding Party Old MontrealOld Montreal Wedding Old Montreal WeddingOld Montreal WeddingOld Montreal Wedding_111 Wedding Reception DecorEveryone says that a wedding day flies by, but I really think this couple enjoyed every minute of it.
