Do you ever dream of leaving everything aside? Of running away with your partner for a long weekend? Of living in the present moment without schedule and without flafla? Of organizing your intimate wedding on an island in Quebec?
Do you ever imagine your wedding day going like this? No large group, no big reception and no pressure… Would you like your wedding day to be intimate, just the two of you or with the few persons who matter most to you?
Marilou & Nicolas decided that this was how they wanted to live one of the happiest days of their lives. One of the most significant. They said Yes to each other. Alone, standing facing the sea, on an island surrounded by mist in the middle of the St. Lawrence River.
During our meetings to help them organize all of this, we made several suggestions for romantic and surprising places for an intimate wedding in Quebec. Their only criterion was that they wanted to get married in a seaside atmosphere within a radius of about 4 hours by road from Montreal where they live. Following our advice, they finally chose Île Verte located very close to Rivière-du-Loup.
On this island, only one road, no mass tourism, no ATM. A bucolic and marine atmosphere, a lighthouse (the oldest on the St. Lawrence) and blessed peace!
Patrick and I had convinced them to get up at dawn to exchange their wedding vows. After scouting the day before D-Day to find the perfect location on the island, we knew that the sun would come directly behind them at the magic moment. We had planned everything for an elopement at sunrise. Ha ha ha! What a surprise that morning! Mother Nature offered us the spectacle of an intense fog that covered the island! We felt in a cocoon of sweetness. And Nicolas even told us that it couldn’t be more perfect since it reminded him of his native Normandy.
When you let go of traditions, expectations and the superfluous, only what is simple, pure and true remains. We surrender to the present moment. We live. What could be better than experiencing it all on your wedding day!
