This year we got to pull of a first at the infamous Chateau Laurier – and it was fabulous! This hotel is definitely one of our fave venues in the city so when the bride wanted to host her friends and family all on the terrace we jumped at the chance to be the first outdoor reception there. Once of my favourite lines that we held close to our hearts while discussing details was from the bride herself – while the Chateau is super beautiful and ornate she wanted to make sure the wedding truly represented herself and her groom. For all you Gilmore Girl fans out there Jenna said to think more Rory and less Emily and Richard – love it!
