Homespun Vintage Inspired Wedding with the Brides in Jeans

The love of basketball brought Justine and Mathilde together, and following a chilled proposal dancing in their pyjamas, the couple wanted a wedding that reflected their relaxed vibe.

They filled the day with things they loved – from the rainbow confetti and pompoms their guests showered them with after they said their “I Dos”, to the kids’ face painting booth during the reception – every decision they made had to represent either of them in some way!
