A Fête to Remember: Marc and Elise's Romantic French Wedding

Elise and Marc are some of the most elegant people you will ever meet. In fact Elise was 8 months pregnant on her wedding day and still one of the most beautiful brides we have ever seen. They are francophones so their wedding obviously paid homage to their French roots through a simplicity that only the French know but they threw in their own modern twist.

They had their reception at the Museum of Nature in the upstairs loft in October 2010. They chose not to bring in much decor or lighting, instead letting the modern beauty of the room softly mingle with the traditional French elements of their wedding. They kept their wedding colours muted (lattes and mochas, blacks and ivories) since the room itself is white. This was key or else the entire room would look unbalanced as 'edgy' battles 'classic elegance'.

It was stunning to see Elise dance a traditional waltz with her father against the backdrop of the funky leather lounge furniture we rented from Mikaza Home.

Here are just a few of some of the stunning shots of their wedding from our friends at Photolux Studios.

Where did you find french macaroons in Ottawa? Were they authentic and wonderful?
