As far as winter weddings go, there are probably few places that fuse old-world charm and snowy weather like Quebec City. Situated on the upper banks of the mighty St. Lawrence River (Riviere St-Laurent), Quebec City may be an outlier in terms of a destination wedding location but should be creeping up the list of amazing North American hot-spots in which to get married. It’s also one of (if not, THE) oldest city in Canada (perhaps North America) and has done a beautiful job in preserving its history, staying true to its proud heritage. We had shot in the area a few times over the past year (see links below) so when Sarah + Rob signed us on to be their Quebec City wedding photographer, we wholeheartedly agreed because we already were in love with the area (and city). The fact that these two were super-friendly and gracious made this an easy decision for us.
Preparations at the iconic Château Frontenac, married at the historic Cathedral-Basilica of Notre-Dame de Québec, and reception at the jaw-dropping Musée de l’Amérique francophone (our second this year at this location!) this day was a beautiful concentration of the finest venues in Quebec. We hope that we captured the feeling of this part of town, and more importantly, the feeling and excitement that were so palpable on this wonderful day. Take a look at the photos and let us know what you think in the comments below.
