Marie-Paule and Alexandre grew up in the same neighbourhood and went to the same elementary school, but nothing romantic developed between them until they reconnected at a friend’s birthday in 2006. That chance encounter was the beginning of something special, and before long they knew they were meant to be. On a five-day trek through the Italian Alps, Alexandre decided to make things official, and asked Marie-Paule to marry him. They celebrated in Italy and Venice before heading home to start planning their crafty backyard wedding. The duo knew instantly that they wanted to host their crafty backyard wedding ceremony in Alexandre’s parents’ yard. “They did a lot of work in the garden,” Marie-Paule laughs. “And it was just perfect for our intimate celebration.”
