Styled Shoot // Same-sex Elopement in Montreal on a Boat

This is a collaborative wedding styled shoot of your everyday couple, Andrew and William. We styled this shoot in a beautiful venue, a private boat, with beautiful people involved. Using primary colours with bold accents, we tried to design a celebration of love and the bond a couple shares on their wedding day.

We are all about LOVE and all that love has to offer in all its beautiful ways. We at Lily & Roses Exquisite Events cater to all, and we want to make everyone's special day as magical as the love they share. That's it! Let love sparkle.

From the couple: We are very privileged to have our photo shoot done by these wonderful collaborators! Everyone was enthusiastic and so lively. Every detail was on point. We laughed all through the photo shoot, and that is of great importance to us!
