This Modern Love: We (Secretly) Cut the Cake

With the party raging on, we didn't dare want to slow down the momentum.  So when our wedding planner told us it was time to cut the cake (or cupcake I should say), we told her to let the DJ know to keep the party going, and that we'd just pull the photographers aside so they can take photos of us doing the honors.  If any of the guests happened to be watching, great, but we weren't going to stop the music for this.

Feeding each other cupcakes

Our cupcake tower was from the fabulous cupcake shop Les Glaceurs in Old Montreal.  We discovered the shop on our very first trip to Montreal over three years ago and become obsessed, so we pretty much booked them in the beginning stages of our wedding planning.

After we got our cake photos, the DJ announced that the cupcakes were now ready to be (self)served, and people came in droves to enjoy the delicious treats!

There were 7 cupcake flavors including S'mores cupcakes--doesn't get better than that! / Personal photo
  A few minutes later, we snuck off with the photogs for some final couples' pictures of the night.

I haven't mentioned this before but I must say, the staff at the Hotel Nelligan were truly excellent.  They took care of everything we needed and were the friendliest, most accommodating people I've ever worked with.  Since the rain finally let up, we asked permission to go to the rooftop to take some nighttime shots and the hotel was more than willing to unlock the doors and let us go up for a few minutes.

One of the staff overheard me talking about how cold it probably was outside and out of nowhere, he brings me a towel to help keep me warm in between shots.  I'm telling you, these people went above and beyond our expectations. 

From the hotel rooftop, you can see the Notre Dame cathedral lit up in the background.  Even though we were freezing, it made for a beautiful photo op.

Next up, all good parties things must come to an end.
