Montreal Quebec Wedding In July
Montréal   |   July, 2013   |   Attraction

"This Gothic revival cathedral is one of Montreal's most iconic landmarks, not to mention the place where Celine Dion got married! It's smack in the middle of the Old Port, so it's a good starting point for sightseeing. They have a light show in the evenings and if you're there to attend Mass you will not be charged admission."

"Notre-Dame is only one of many beautiful churches in the city. It's a neogothic building dating from 1829, constructed on the site of a much older and smaller church, which had been outgrown by its parishioners. Everything about the basilica is on a grand scale. The twin towers are 228 feet high and the western tower holds the 12-ton le Gros Bourdon, the largest bell on the continent. Notre Dame is noted for its lavish and beautiful interior: Stained glass windows Paintings Statues Thousands of 24-karat gold stars on its vaulted ceilings Ornately decorated pulpit It also has a notable 7000-pipe Casavant organ, the largest on the continent. Sometimes called “the wedding chapel,” hundreds of Montrealers get married at Notre Dame every year. In fact, this is where Celine Dion was married in 1994. Notre Dame is an active house of worship, so touring must be done in between regularly scheduled masses. Montreal's Notre-Dame Basilica has nothing in common with Paris's except the name. Find Notre Dame Basilica at 110 rue Notre-Dame Ouest."

"Breathtaking in the richness of its interior furnishings and big enough to hold 4,000 worshipers, this magnificent structure was designed in 1824 by James O'Donnell, an Irish-American Protestant architect from New York -- who was so profoundly moved by the experience of creating this basilica that he converted to Catholicism after its completion. The impact is understandable. Of Montréal's hundreds of churches, Notre-Dame's interior is the most stunning, with a wealth of exquisite details, most of them carved from rare woods that have been delicately gilded and painted. O'Donnell, clearly a proponent of the Gothic Revival style, is the only person honored by burial in the crypt."

Heide and Tony's Wedding
Montréal   |   October, 2009   |   Ceremony

"Just beautiful. There's not much I can say about this, the basilica is gorgeous. More expensive than other churches, but was worth it for us, given that we had a lot of people coming from out of town, gave them an incentive to come and they loved it!"
