Sweet and simple. That’s how Joanna and Jeremy were engaged (on a wintry night at home), and also how they envisioned their wedding. Except there would be lots and lots of dancing along with a henna party in honor of Jeremy’s Moroccan background. The Spanish and Portuguese Synagogue set the scene for it all, and they took to the streets of Old Montreal for an extra romantic just-married shoot for two!
How did you choose your gown?
“I brought my sister and my best friend—we were tight on time and basically went to a store a day for a week and then made a decision. I ended up picking Divine, the first dress I tried on!”
Did you have a theme or style in mind?
“No theme, I’m a less-is-more type of person. I didn’t care much about the “extras” (flowers, decor, etc). My number one priority was that there would be a good vibe, energy and spirit. (ok, and also good weather). The day ended up being perfect, emotional and beautiful and everyone had an amazing time.”
What’s one of your favorite wedding day memories?
“My husband is Moroccan, and we had a surprise Henna (Moroccan tradition) party at the end. We had a costume change and got carried out on these awesome chairs—that was definitely one of the highlights.”
What was your something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue?
“I borrowed my best friend’s veil and my sister’s pearl necklace (old and borrowed). My mom bought me new pearl earrings. I also borrowed a garter with a blue ribbon.”
Where did you go on your honeymoon?
“HAWAII – Maui and Kauai.”
