Summer Wedding Inspiration: A Same Sex Starry Wedding on a Boat

Summer weddings are fun to design. For starters there are colour palettes to play with, locations to scout, and a wedding theme to pick. There’s so much potential for a summer wedding!
Plus, it’s nice not having to deck yourself out in layer after layer of clothing to fight the winter chill. 

Looking for some inspiration for a summer wedding? Look no further. Our styled shoot, shot on location on a yacht off the island of Montreal in Longueuil, Quebec, was one of our most thrilling and collaborative projects and events we’ve designed to date. While we’ve also designed a few winter-themed styled shoots, which you can read about in a previous blog post, this was one of our favourite styled shoots filled with summer wedding inspiration. If you are planning to get married in Montreal, here’s a bit of modern nautical summer wedding style for you.

We decided to name this styled shoot “Our Love is as Unique as the Stars”. Mixing a galactic theme with bold and warm colours, we created an intimate wedding set on this gorgeous yacht on a warm summer day. Love can bring you to places unknown and sometimes out of this world. And truly, love is love is love is love. Enough said. 
The Venue

Montreal – being an island and all – makes it an ideal setting for a nautical wedding. Did you know the city was an island? Yes – we’re a huge island. Filled with millions of people from almost every country under the sun.
We were delighted to be able to shoot on location using a yacht at Navark. They take bookings for numerous events, including weddings. For more information on how to reserve a boat for your next Montreal event, click here.

The Couple

The team was lucky to add talented Montreal models Rocky Hamilton and Denis Rousseau to the mix. They were so professional and oh-so-adorable as our couple and stars of the day Andrew and William.

Brittany Lee is a photographer based in Ottawa. Check out her exquisite collection of work here. Her passion and eye for detail helped make the day run smoothly. We have to give her props for truly capturing the style and beauty of the day!

Pretty Papeterie & Invitations
None other than the talented Mademoiselle D was there to design and create the stylish stationery that was featured in this styled shoot. Her work truly complimented the table setting we styled for this intimate wedding reception on a boat. ​When you collaborate with the right people who share your vision, the sky is truly the limit!

The Flowers
Beautiful boutonnières and more. We couldn’t think of a better match and pairing for the suits worn by Rocky and Denis. Thank you Kyoto for your exquisite work, as always!For more inspiration from the work they do for weddings and more in Montreal, check out their website

The Spread
The cake and sweet table were provided by Montreal’s own Little Leah’s Kitchen. We added the softer pastels and florals to balanced the bolder galactic theme we had going on for our starry styled shoot. The tower of silver donuts and the beautifully designed and delectable wedding cakes fit perfectly. Check out the toppings and rose petals on the cupcakes, which really made the colours on the sweet table pop!

The Hair and Makeup
Ever heard of Gabbie McGuire? She’s one of #MTL’s hottest MUAs. Her work is always fashionable and flawless. Gabbie’s services extend from wedding to commercial.Working with her is always an adventure and a joy!

It’s All in the Details
Sticker tattoos were the perfect accent for guests of honour Andrew and William. It complimented our theme so well. We are in awe of Ditte Pepper and her creativity and vision. Some of her work is featured on her website.
