We never thought that the Ice Chapel can be such an incredible and memorable wedding location, until we saw Flora & Ryan’s wedding photos captured beautifully by White Photographie. This wedding is like a romantic fairytale-come-true, with magical scenes and unbelievable beauty. Join us as we share this lovely intimate winter affair below.
Unique destination style
White Photographie: We began the day in the bridal suite at the beautiful Chateau Frontenac, where we were able to capture some truly dramatic bridal photos alongside its amazing architecture. The Ice Hotel (Hotel de Glace) is located only 10 minutes from downtown Québec City and is one of two ice hotels in the world. The Ice Hotel is without a doubt one of the most amazing destination wedding locations for couples in search of a perfectly white winter wedding.
Flora & Ryan both live in Toronto, but with family around the world they decided on a destination style wedding to accommodate family travel. Choosing this amazing venue meant that everyone could spend a wonderful winter weekend together and experience an intimate wedding ceremony with Flora & Ryan.
The Ice Chapel
White Photographie: The wedding ceremony took place in the breathtaking ice chapel, complete with an ice altar and seating covered with fur. After the ceremony all the guests made their way to the Ice Bar where everyone is served Champagne in ice flutes to congratulate the newlyweds.
Thoughts from the photographer
White Photographie: In our first consultation with Flora & Ryan they told us their wedding would be held at the Hotel de Glace in Quebec. We had heard of this amazingly unique venue, but had never been there – to say we were excited would be an understatement! This was a truly unforgettable wedding and we are so happy we had the opportunity to experience it with Flora & Ryan and their family and friends.
