Put on your finest attire to attend the re-enactment of this historic wedding. Anne-Marie Vansègue arrived in Ville-Marie 350 years ago. She was married on November 20, 1673. The Société d’histoire des Filles du Roy recreates the event with costumed characters and explains the steps involved, from the publication of banns to the wedding ceremony.
