Julie and Erik’s wedding

This is one wedding I really enjoyed this year. Julie and Erik got married near Montreal at Mont St-Hilaire on July 26.

It was a very nice wedding, very nice family, and with a very nice view. I was assisted by photographer Glen Flett on this one.

One interesting thing about this wedding is that I had never met or even spoken to Julie prior to the wedding.. but when I got there I felt right at home and it was as though I had.

So without further ado.. here are some of the highlights of this friendly wedding.

Please note that our BLOG moved. Go to to get the updated version of this post.

This is not the crest of love, but I thought it’d be a nice picture to start with!

Here’s Julie having a drink with the family.

A little by-stander, not quite ready yet…

Erik. Somehow the groom’s preparation is never as glamorous… :)

The reception was at Maison Gault in Mont St-Hilaire:

If it looks like I’m not following the order of things, that’s because the couple actually met here before the wedding. In terms of logistics, this is a fantastic thing to do. It provides undisturbed photography time and the couple has more time with the guests after the wedding.

Here they are together.

The future is bright.

Cool couple.

With SAphoto, fun is the first rule. Technicalities of posing and taking the pictures are secondary.

This just became my new favorite picture.

One could almost think they are happy together. :)

While Erik went to attend to other business with his two kids, we did a few shots of Julie inside.

Serious. Beautiful.


Tatoo revealed!

The mother blends so well in that room.

There she is.. and on time I believe!

The priest speaking of heart matters.

Some couples keep their first kiss private. There is nothing wrong with that.

We did it!

I love the peacefulness of Julie in this otherwise hectic surrounding.

Back to the reception, Erik is having a good laugh.

“Happiness to you two, may this wedding be a pledge of love and prosperity. Congratulation.”

This guy made a promise he would not do this at the wedding…

Some shots from the dinner.

To make the couple kiss, guests had to sing. Here the sisters of the bride are very much into it!

First dance.

Wrapped and surrounded by bubbles.

Lucky guy!

The immediate family was gathered on the dance floor and singing to “Hey Jude” from the Beatles.

This was quite an emotional moment.

  1. I didn’t get a chance to see Julie since a while ago now; as life, work, kids seperates us. Viewing your blog gave me a chance to be somehow, part of their joy on that very special day! Many, many thanks! You definitly have talent!
