An autumn wedding at Le Westin Montreal

WeddingsWith 0 comments

An autumn wedding usually means chilly weather. But for Youssef and Heba’s October wedding, the happy celebration of love kept everyone warm.

The bride and groom got ready in their families’ homes, just a short distance apart. Then, the groom walked over to the bride’s house, where they saw each other for the first time, in the chaotic crush of family and friends.

For a photojournalistic wedding photographer, this type of lively celebration is so much fun to cover.

For the formal couple’s portraits, we headed to Mount-Royal park, at a Montreal landmark commonly called the “tam-tam statue “. On Sundays in the summer, this monument is surrounded by vibrant drumming and dancing, but in October, we had it all to ourselves.

We then headed downtown for more candid coverage of this autumn wedding at Le Westin Montreal.

As the Heba and Youssef entered the reception hall, a zaffeh group escorted them onto the dance floor, drumming and getting the party started with some epic Arabic music.

I love the Westin’s modern terrace. At the end of the night, we snuck outside for a few tranquil night photos with the city lights.

Big thanks to my second photographer for the day: Roxanne Ross who covered all the groom preparations and got some amazing photos during the wedding day!

Please enjoy the following photos of Heba and Youssef’s lively autumn wedding!
