I first met Karan & Annie in the aftermath of a wild winter storm last December. We trekked out into the unplowed streets of Annie's hometown to take some gorgeous photos before settling down with warm drinks in front of a cosy fireplace.
I met up with Annie again at a salon in Farnham where she was getting ready with her bridesmaids and her sisters-in-law to be. Annie was tying up loose strings for the day on the phone, getting her hair done all the while maintaining her composure. I love seeing a bride who rolls with the punches and can get everything figured out with as little stress as possible. When Annie was mostly done getting ready, I then popped on over to Annie's aunt's house where Karan was getting ready with "the boys" over pizza.
Annie & Karan wanted to hold to the traditions of a typical Quebec wedding, including the strict rule that they could not see each other before Annie walked down the aisle. This involved a lot of sneaking around and scurrying between windows in Annie's parents house (with Karan right next door).
The ceremony took place next to the river in Annie's parents' backyard, where someone had crossed the river to put up a sign to commemorate Karan & Annie's special day. After the ceremony, everyone drove to the Chateau Bromont for the reception, where we were treated to a ride around the golf course at sunset to take the formal pictures.
They closed out the formal programming for the evening with their first dance set to Stairway to Heaven-- and a surprise choreographed Indian dance number. A fantastically fun way to kick off the dance party, which I'm sure continued well into the night 🕺
