“My heart sings of your longing for me, and my thoughts climb down to marvel at your mercy. I do not fear as you gather up my days. Your name is the sweetness of time, and you carry me close into the night, speaking consolations, drawing down lights from the sky, saying, See how the night has no terrors for one who remembers the name.” 


-Leonard Cohen

 

The Fort Point Museum is an absolute treasure of a wedding venue. I love it when couples aren't afraid to think outside of the box for their wedding venue. I've photographed some of my favourite (and I think most beautiful) weddings at a non-traditional venue. This museum was actually the capital of New France, way back when New France was actually a thing and Samuel De Champlain was busying himself discovering the area in an attempt to impress King Louis the XIII, or at least trying to convince him to send some more of that new world exploration money. Anyway, he succeeded, and Fort Ste. Marie de Grace was built. Fast forward today and we have one of the most unique and beautiful wedding venues around.

Listening to the exchange of vows is one of my favourite things about photographing weddings. To see two people open up to all of their friends and family and share their love is an amazing moment. Trevor and Morgan also happen to be extremely eloquent, and listening to their vows had me feeling as if I was witnessing a truly magical moment. 

Thank you both for having us be a part of your day. You are both the most happy, friendly people and I take solace in knowing that decades from now you will both look at these photos and smile, and remember this beautiful day.
