This Wedding Had a Real Owl as the Ring Bearer

May 27 2014 - 6:00am

Violaine and Gaetan's wedding [1] included a groom arriving via canoe, bridal portraits in a fir forest, a giant tepee for the ceremony, and, oh yeah, a tiny little owl as the ring bearer. The woodsy big day took place at Haut Bois Normand [2] in Quebec, Canada, and was shot by Bonnallie Brodeur [3]. The photographer had this to say about the couple — who he describes as a pirate and his sweetheart — and the wedding:

"Upon our arrival, we noticed the beautiful tepee awaiting, the colored ribbons, and the owl. Yes, a real owl! It was also awaiting the ceremony since it was in charge of bringing the rings. Our hearts melted even more. That day was filled with surprises — good ones, of course — but the ceremony reached new heights when Violaine grabbed her ukulele to sing Gaetan her vows. It was beautiful."
