This soft, organic Chateau Des Charmes wedding is a vineyard wedding come true! Hands down, Christina and Walid are one of the most outspoken and happy couples I’ve had pleasure to work with. Both huge science fiction fans, their beautiful Chateau des Charmes wedding reception featured hand painted sci-fi heroes, like Master Yoda and Iron Man. I mean, does it get any cooler than that?

Their wedding day was filled with emotional moments, special events and lots of laughter. Every hour, from morning to sunset, featured some really awesome events, starting with their post-ceremony Star Wars grand entrance to belly dancers and fireworks at night. I did my best not to miss a thing and capture every moment, from Christina gracefully walking down the aisle to Walid’s proud smile as he watched her. As a wedding photographer, I’m honoured to be a part of the most special day in our couple’s life, and in everything I do I try to reflect that. I believe it’s those special moments in-between that often go unnoticed that make for the most special and treasured wedding photographs.

Chateau Des Charmes is a stunning French vineyard that sits amongst the rows of beautiful grape vines. Its roots go far back into history, dating to 1963 when it’s owner arrived to Quebec to establish his own winemaking business. I wanted to take complete advantage of this gorgeous property and started the day off with wedding portraits at the Chateau’s beautiful garden. We also took essential wedding photos among the winery rows. There’s something about a Chateau des Charmes wedding that makes me think of soft colours and romantic poses. My aim was to take as many candid portraits as possible to capture the surrounding natural beauty and charm. A vineyard was a perfect backdrop to Christina and Walid’s portraits letting their love for each other take centre stage in the photos.

Christina and Walid had an outdoor ceremony, with the rows of beautiful grape vines as the backdrop. I couldn’t help but tear up as they exchanged their vows and cheered together with the guests as Christina threw up her bouquet in the air when they pronounced them as husband and wife!  Their wedding reception took place in a draped tent, decorated with gold, rustic chandeliers and fresh, loose greenery. They also added a hanging centrepiece to their head table that featured soft, white blooms. Christina and Walid made one of the most unforgettable grand entrances afterwards as they walked into their wedding reception with Star Wars lightsabers.

My favourite part of the night was their speeches and stories they shared with their family. It was an emotional, yet exciting night. There was so much love and joy in the room, and you could just feel it in the air.

Christina and Walid, it was great to be a part of your special day! I wish you all the happiness in the world!
