A few weeks ago, we got the amazing opportunity to be featured for the first time on the wedding inspiration blog: Merci New York, thanks to our wedding creative inspired by The Great Gatsby. Incidentally, we would like to thank Jacqueline Weppner and her New York team for their kind words.
We are therefore honored to introduce today the result of our collaboration with some of the best wedding professionals of Montreal and its region. We invite you to find the list with their contact information in our Little Black Book.
Welcome to Elizabeth & Jay’s wedding. Two imaginary characters inspired by the 1920s book, The Great Gatsby by Francis Scott Fitzgerald, but also imagined by Vanessa Sicotte from Damask & Dentelle, Leslie Passerino from Kréavie and Charlotte Laurent from TELEGRAPHE. He is a gentleman and she is a mysterious heiress.
Vanessa imagined the table design starting with a world of tangerine tango (official 2012 Pantone color) and peacock feather blue. Then silver and gold touches were added to add refinement. The shapes remind us of Art Nouveau style, very popular during the Roaring Twenties and the Jazz Age.
The “bamboo” style chairs (very popular in the wedding world) and the “cow skin” rug with intense colors came from Ludovik’s. They both bring modernity to the décor.
In order to add texture, the flower bouquets included ostrich and peacock feathers. The main bouquet that served as a table centerpiece was created and designed by Philippe Dagenais Mobilier along with Vanessa.
The tableware adorned with birds also matched the style of the golden cutlery and the cut glasses from Linen Chest.
The white embroidered tablecloth from Linen Chest, paired with the different elements of the table, remained in the classic style of weddings of olden times.
And now, let’s look at the wedding dinner imagined by our Chef: the very talented Éric Gonzalez and his kitchen squad. You can find all the menus offered during weddings celebrated at L’Auberge on our dedicated page.
Choice of hot and cold canapés, each more heavenly than the previous one.
Duck foie gras our way with its seasonal chutney and its truffle oil brioche.
“Balik” smoked salmon with its blini, vodka sour cream and caviar.
Homemade “Trou Normand”: Pear ice cream and Williams pear.
Beef filet and giant shrimp, shellfish bisque.
Blue fish encrusted with boletus and its port sauce.
Mousseline sauce flavored with Madagascar vanilla served with raspberries and lime.
And we continue to uncover this wedding creative with the sweet tables imagined by Leslie of Kréavie.
The second sweet table offered pastries named Bird and Charleston made by Géraldine of G&G Pâtisserie Gourmande, raspberry candy by Kréavie, Cigarettes Russes by Kréavie, and cookies imagined, prepared and decorated by Véronique from Biscuits Sug’Art.
In the photo frame, a Karl Menninger’s quote representing Elizabeth & Jay’s love stated: “One does not fall into love; one grows into love, and love grows in him.”
Sugar love cages by Kréavie.
The final sweet table makes you salivate with its panne cotte, and its deconstructed lemon meringue pies by Kréavie. The last sweet pieces scattered all over the design were vanilla & red velvet mini cupcakes by Paige from Simply Sweet.
Here come the flowers… The bouquet as well as these two floral arrangements were designed by the team of Mimosa Fleurs.
