Annik and I hit it off right away. I think our first meeting at La Madeleine lasted three hours, and our other meetings just as long, with either coffee or wine. We talked about the wedding, of course, but also tons of other topics we ended up having in common!
I loved everything about Annik’s style, from her classic color scheme, to the attention to details, and what I would consider a super traditional yet simple wedding. Annik chose the classic Windsor Court Hotel for her bridal prep and reception, and a formal Catholic wedding ceremony at St. Mary’s Assumption uptown. There was no bridal party, so the focus was solely on her and her groom, Jose. Instead of a bouquet, she carried a rosary. All of this was captured beautifully by Hannah Mulligan Photography.
One of my favorite details was her gorgeous gown, which was actually worn by her mother, and her classic veil. The morning started out rainy, and by the time the afternoon ceremony was over, the rain cleared and the winds picked up, perfect conditions for her bridal veil blowing in the wind as they got into the vintage Rolls Royce to head to the reception.
This wedding made me a fan of afternoon receptions. It was small and intimate, with music by Robin Barnes, and everyone had a great time visiting, eating, and dancing. The afternoon sun looked beautiful streaming into the rooms at the Windsor Court. Annik and Jose cut into an adorable tiny cake by Sucre, and guests were served tiny miniature cakes. Like everything about this wedding, nothing was overdone, but classic and just right. Best wishes for the newlyweds and their new life together!
