The wedding of Marguerite and Sami is featured in the WS22 issue of WedLuxe. To have a copy shipped to your door, visit our shop!

A fifteen-year-old Marguerite first met then sixteen-year-old Sami when he asked her on a date and she politely declined. “I was very shy when I was young,” she explains. Six years passed before the pair randomly recognized each other at a store and began chatting. Thankfully, Sami had the nerve to ask for a date (again!) and the couple has been together ever since.

Four years later, in March of 2020, Sami proposed. It was Marguerite’s final year of law school. Due to the Pandemic, her University declared they would close for what was originally supposed to be a week.

Although the reason for the unscheduled break was not ideal, the timing worked out perfectly for Sami. He had been planning an elaborate proposal for some time but didn’t know how he would convince the notoriously studious Marguerite to take a full day off. With her newfound vacation time, she agreed to brunch, followed by a drive. As they were heading up North, Sami revealed that he was actually taking her on a helicopter ride!

Eventually, the helicopter dropped them off at the top of a mountain. “There was a huge blanket on the ground with food and champagne. That’s when he said a few words and went down on his knee and proposed,” remembers Marguerite. “It was a dream.”

The couple was married on September 17, 2021, in Montreal, Quebec with the event planned and designed by Zeina Issa of Zeina Issa Events.

 

 

Marguerite wore a wedding gown by Berta, purchased at White Montreal. Her 150-ft long silk veil was custom-made by Dress Scoop. Headpiece from Créations Vézina. Marguerite’s diamond earrings and tennis bracelet from Ex Aurum Jewellers were a wedding gift from her mother-in-law. The engagement ring and wedding band were both custom-made by Serge Sakayan.

Lelili Fleurs provided all floral for the wedding including Marguerite’s all-white peony bouquet which the designer was able to source, despite peonies being extremely rare in September!

The ceremony took place at La Visitation-de-la-Bienheureuse-Vierge-Marie, one of the most beautiful churches in Montreal.

The reception was held at Maison Principal, a venue in Montreal known for gorgeous high ceilings, detailed mouldings, and spectacular in-house chandeliers. Creativ Nation projected the couples logo on the walls of the venue.

Bride Marguerite wanted ‘donut’ style dining tables (round with floral arrangements in the center) which planner Zeina Issa helped design and bring to life with Eventex Productions and Lelili Fleurs. 

Two 12ft tall white metal structures with 12ft diameter circular “tops” were custom-manufactured. The top of the structures was completely covered with white hydrangeas; six chandeliers were then hung from each structure to complement the spectacular in-house chandeliers of Maison Principal. 

My favorite design detail was our head table. It was truly a flower paradise and the candles made it so romantic.” 

- Marguerite, Bride

 

 

Dolci Piu created the couple’s 9-tier wedding cake and provided hundreds of decadent confectionaries for a dessert table extraordinaire. The couple’s sweetheart table was elevated on a round stage to achieve their desire for a head table that was as grand as the venue itself.

Lelili Fleurs provided guest favors that consisted of individual long-lasting rose ‘eternal flowers’ placed in a glass box. Floral backdrop and cart for the favours were provided by Big Flowers MTL. Bar decals, table numbers, and plexiglass mirrored menus were designed by Zeina Issa Events and produced by KarSy Design.
