The Bachelor's Vanessa Grimaldi Got Married & It Was A VERY Montreal Wedding

From the dress to the rings to the hair salon to the venue to the groom...

Vanessa Grimaldi's Wedding Was A Montreal Dream

If you watch ABC's The Bachelor, chances are you know Vanessa Grimaldi, a Montreal native who won the show in 2017 but ultimately split up with the show's star, Nick Viall. Don't feel too bad, though. Grimaldi ultimately found love in Montreal and, last weekend, one year after a fairytale proposal in Quebec City, Grimaldi married her new boo in a very Montreal wedding.

On Instagram, Grimaldi broke down the details of what she called "the most magical weekend," and it's so Montreal that you could recreate a lot of it if you wanted. Or you could simply try to nab her hair and makeup people for a special occasion.

Grimaldi's wedding took place at Le Mount Stephen, a luxury boutique hotel on rue Drummond in the Golden Square Mile, which used to be the opulent mansion of Lord George Stephen. If you've ever gotten drunk at the beautiful Bar George, you've been to Le Mount Stephen.

Though Grimaldi didn't have a wedding party, she did have three flower girls, two ring bearers and two more kids who walked the couple's dogs down the aisle. Grimaldi said they turned a section of Le Mount Stephen's penthouse into a play area for the kids so they could run around, play games and "be kids."

The wedding was planned by Tania Tassone, a Montreal-based event producer and creator of Les Picnic Chicks, a company that designs glam picnics for Montrealers.

Grimaldi's dress was designed by Montreal's Maria Arciero and the groom's suit came from Miguel Waxman whose family owns the famous Waxman House on avenue du Parc.

The rings were from Teresa And Sons in Phillips Square.

Angela Lucia of Griffintown's Coiffure Blunt styled Grimaldi's hair and Montreal make-up artist Mikey Proscino, who goes by Mikey P, did her makeup.

The whole affair was photographed by Montreal's Magnolia Studio and video footage was taken by VillaView Cinema, which specializes in Montreal and destination weddings. Some of Magnolia's photos even made it into People Magazine.

But beyond the glitz and glamour, one more very important thing came from Montreal: the groom. Grimaldi's new husband, Joshua Wolfe, is a Montrealer who works as the director of outreach and programming for the Quebec branch of CJPAC, the Canadian Jewish Political Affairs Committee.

He also happens to be the brother of Mandy and Rebecca Wolfe, the sisters behind Mandy's salad bar, a Montreal staple.

Congratulations Vanessa and Josh!
