Alex & Josh | France Wedding

I can still feel the sea wind whipping through my hair, smell the salty port towns and earthy farmlands, and most of all, see the love that brought so many people together from all around the world.  The multi-day celebration that was Alex & Josh’s wedding was truly a monumental coming together… for a few happy days, we were all a part of one family, regardless of language or background.  I doubt any of us will soon forget the warmth, laughter, and love that this wedding helped to create.

Josh & Alex met through mutual friends in Vancouver… she was a French girl living out her dreams in Canada, he was a Canadian guy about to go through some most difficult life events.  Their love quickly flourished and it soon became evident that together, they could do pretty much anything.  Towards the end of last year, on a visit back to her home country, Josh proposed to Alex directly under the Eiffel Tower… does it get any more romantic than that?!  She said yes, by the way.  And so began the planning process to be married on a small, beautiful island off the west coast of Brittany… a place where Alex & her family had spent countless summers vacationing as she grew up: Belle-île-En-Mer.

What an honour it was to photograph their wedding and support our friends as they embark on their next adventure.  Alex & Josh, I can’t thank you enough for all your hard work in making this dream a reality, and for choosing to include me on your amazing day.  It means the world.  To Alex’s family & friends, words cannot express our gratitude to you for welcoming us Canadians with such love.  Your kindness & hospitality are truly unmatched… thank you for everything from the bottom of my heart!

Pour la famille d’Alex et ses amis, les mots ne peuvent exprimer notre gratitude pour accueillir les Canadiens nous avec tant d’amour. Votre gentillesse et l’hospitalité sont vraiment incomparable … merci pour tout, depuis le fond de mon coeur!  Félicitations aux jeunes mariés!
