Maia and Paul wed on Fiddler Lake, a beautifully lush resort dotted with grand log cabins tucked away north of Montreal. I love that the flowers were purchased in bulk and arranged the morning of the wedding by friends and family! And don’t get me started on Maia’s flawless + polished bridal look – she couldn’t be more classic if she tried. Exquisite! / Photos by Emilie Olson.
Says Maia, “We both had a fairly clear vision of what we wanted to create for our wedding. My family has a cottage in the Laurentians and I had always loved the idea of a relaxed wedding weekend where guests could have plenty of opportunities to catch up with one another while enjoying great food, drinks and fun outdoor celebrations.
We wanted to create a setting that felt beautiful and polished. We were thrilled to find such an amazing venue in Saint-Sauveur that offered gorgeous chalets, stunning outdoor spaces and a carte-blanche to create the exact wedding we had envisioned. Because of the remote location, we planned and executed nearly the entire event (with plenty of help from friends and family).
Maia wore her grandmother’s pearls from the 1930s.
The style of our wedding could be described as relaxed elegance. We had beautiful outdoor spaces for our ceremony and cocktail hour where an abundance of fresh flowers accented the natural Laurentian backdrop.
The decor for our reception tent was tasteful with accents that highlighted the natural beauty of the setting. We tried to create an intimate environment where guests could relax and enjoy a long night of celebration.
Thanks so much to Maia and Paul for sharing their darling day with us and to Emilie Olson for sharing her lovely photos! xx.
Maia leaves us with some parting advice, “[Don’t] worry about ‘pulling it off.’ If you have specific goals of what you want to create for your wedding day, don’t hesitate to pursue them. Everything will come together beautifully and whatever space you’ve created will be enhanced by the love and positivity of those joined within it.”
Maia and Paul spent a week in the Algarve for their honeymoon.
