JULIE MARTEL and MAXIME BÉDARD-LÉVESQUE
We wanted beautiful, out-ofthe-ordinary decor that was also romantic. To achieve that effect we put emphasis on birch wood with lots of flowers and candles. The palette we chose was blush and grey, since these colours are perfectly matched and also worked well with the wood. My dress was really gorgeous. For my wedding I wanted something specific, which represented me—a romantic yet elegant gown. I ended up with a backless dress that has a lot of lace and a long, flowing train. We chose three songs for different parts of our day. During the ceremony it was Pachelbel’s “Canon in D,” the same song my parents used at their wedding. For the first dance we picked the tango tune “Santa Maria” by Gotan Project. Later my father whirled me around the dance floor to “My Girl” by the Temptations. The best part about planning the wedding was the big surprise we prepared for the guests. We wanted to do something different for the first dance, so we took eight group lessons to learn the basics of tango. We then had 12 private lessons with a professional Argentine tango dancer. Our first dance segued into a great party!
WE A LITTLE CHOSE THREE SOMETHING SONGS FOR HERE DIFFERENT ABOUT THE PARTS WEDDING OF OUR DAY. FROM JULIE:
