Bride and groom sharing a macaroon kiss

Joshua & Molli’s intimate family wedding at the Old Mansion House, in Georgeville, Quebec

I was so surprised when I heard that Molli and Joshua were travelling up from South Carolina to Magog, Quebec, to get married!

Typical destination weddings happen in places like Cuba and Mexico, right? They had things upside-down…going north for a wedding…didn’t they?

Then I found out that they are in love with French culture. Aha!

This was a chance for them to enjoy a little bit of French culture in North America…where their whole families could come along. Even the grandparents were courageous enough to make the 24-hour road trip up through the States.

So Molli and Josh were married in an intimate ceremony on the porch of the Old Mansion House in Georgeville, Quebec.

It rained a little on their wedding day, but since the ceremony was held on the porch, everybody kept dry. And as they say in French “mariage pluvieux, mariage heureux” (rainy wedding day, happy mariage).

Here are some preview images to tell the story of their special wedding at the Old Mansion House:

During the candle-lighting ceremony, all the guests received candles and Mollie & Joshua went around to light everyone’s candle. Quite a challenge with the wind.

    I know this cover bridge in Fitchbay. A shame the amount of grafiti.

      Hehe, yes, it would look nicer if they cleaned it up…but it’s kind of cool that all the graffiti is couples… Du style: “David + Marie-Pierre = true love 4ever”. It’s not as pretty, but it’s kind of special.

      You have been to Fitch Bay?
