Kim had a very clear idea of what kind of wedding headpiece she wanted: she sent me a picture of a fascinator found on Pinterest, with birdcage veil covering one eye attached to a flower headdress. As Kim is based Montreal, we made her bridal Capelio fascinator in a long-distance process. We used excess lace that remained after the alterations done to her wedding dress and added a flower with two feathers.
Here is the result:
The love story and the proposal
Kim and Pascal met at a gathering with common friends. It was love at first sight for Kim but she was so shy that she didn’t have the courage to talk to him… regardless, the groom found her very pretty, if somewhat cold to ignore him. They still had the opportunity to discuss later in the evening, and thus their relationship began!
Pascal proposed to Kim after more than three years together. He asked the big question on a beach on the island of Capri, during a trip to Italy. Despite the romantic setting, Kim was very surprised, although her parents were already aware of Pascal’s intentions since the future groom had asked their permission before the trip.
The bride and groom were very lucky as they had a wonderful weather during their ceremony – and it really was a chance, since the two weddings on the same day that took place in the same location unfortunately had rain! In fact, the rain progressively stopped while Kim was walking down the aisle, and as the couple exchanged the rings the clouds dispersed, giving way to a beautiful sun!
The bride getting ready
Even though the weather was on their side, luck could not prevent a little problem with the wedding dress that happened just before the ceremony: part of the fabric on the front of the dress broke, and nobody had any thread or needle to repair it! However, Kim saw this as a sign of good luck, since the same thing had happened to her mother during her own wedding! Since Kim’s parents have been married for 25 years now, it bodes very well indeed!
The Bride saying her vows
The wedding theme was the ’50s era. “We wanted everyone to have a little vintage touch to their clothes, without forcing them to organize their whole outfit around our theme.” In the opinion of the bride, the entertainment was great, the food was delicious and the party was unforgettable!
In fact, the couple had even learned a hip hop dance for the opening number on the dancefloor, to their guests’ surprise! Kim and Pascal did not want a conventional wedding, and we can say they succeeded in creating a unique day!
Congratulations to the newlyweds!
