Nuptials on Cloud Nine

Each person who has ever attended a wedding will always remember the emotion they felt when the celebrations came to a close. This single feeling varies from couple to couple. Some weddings are seen as “fun”, others “beautiful”, while some weddings are so “joyous” that the party lasts till the break of dawn. When we first met Gabrielle and Jean-Marie, we could not help but become infatuated with their fun-loving lease on life. There was no question about it, we had to mirror this energy on their wedding day. It would be like catching lightning in a bottle, but we were up for the challenge.

First, we started scouting locations. We looked for a place that would be able to rebound on the couple’s loving bliss, and also host an unforgettable party to match their energy. We went to the highest peaks and set out eyes on the Ixsir vineyards. Located in the city of Batroun, and at an altitude of 1800m, Ixsir is one of the most elevated wineries in the world. In order to make the most out of this special location, we customized every nook and cranny to best fit our couple’s needs. As a start, we transformed the often-overlooked parking lot into an enchanted chapel where the couple could exchange their vows embraced by the rolling hills of Batroun. On the other end of the venue, the dining area was adorned with conductive copper. From the chairs to the show-plates, we were able to construct a bronze-coloured dream that created a sense of unity throughout the wedding.

As a nod to the couple’s playful attitude, each table was named after a fun-loving Lebanese expression. Friends and family could not help but laugh as they were escorted to the “Hayate,” or “Amar,” or “Mabrouk” tables. These guests were brought to their feet as soon as a 20-piece show band, flown in especially from Paris, started performing elating tunes. The winery’s lush greenery and fresh air both contributed to the feeling of bliss guests enjoyed as they basked in the couple’s love and radiant sunbeams that illuminated the celebration. As night fell, the live tunes were swapped for rhythmic DJ beats that accompanied guests until the wee hours of the morning. As celebrations came to an end, guests walked away with a single feeling: utter joy.
