Chantal & Sylvestre’s wedding

14 February 2015
/ / /

I had the chance to meet Chantal through Emmanuelle Poirier, a wedding planner based in Quebec. Chantal is a native of Long Island, United States (near Los Angeles), lived in Toronto and has lived now for years in Quebec City. During that time she met Sylvester, who became her life partner and father of her children. A former professional in communications, Chantal is now a nutritionist who appeared in numerous publications. A true headstrong woman!

The two daughters of the couple took part in the festivities as flower girls. Here the eldest poses with the bride, and the youngest with one of the bridesmaids:

While the bride also lived in Quebec City, we worked together to create the Capelio of her dreams through emails. After discussing her preferences, Chantal and I opted for a fascinator with birdcage veil with a bow to recall the similar details on the back of her wedding dress. The circle shape of the birdcage veil allowed to create a mysterious effect, while not obstructing the pretty face of the bride.

I loved Chantal’s bridal fascinator so much, I included it in the 2015 For the Bride collection of Capelio. Of course, the birdcage veil bears the name of the bride who inspired it!
