The Painter’s Wedding – a style shoot inspired by the Impressionists

Last year we had the immense pleasure of collaborating with a fabulous team of professionals led by Kristy Rice of Momental Designs. After much anticipation, we are delighted to share some of the lovely images from the shoot and announce the publication in the most recent issue of Utterly Engaged.

The departure point for our inspiration was Monet’s garden, nature, and watercolors, and we found ourselves in a beautiful countryside domain on a lovely fall day.

Our beautiful host venue was the Domaine des Evis, a lovingly restored medieval farm in the Normandy countryside. The domain was a treasure trove of beautiful antique furniture and accessories perfect for our shoot.

The sumptuous florals in greens and blues were styled by the talented Tasha Carrington of L’Arrangement. Vintage plates and glassware were courtesy of Vaisselle Vintage, a specialty rentals company, and charger plates from Gien, a famous French earthenware producer.

An Intimate Chapel Wedding in Paris

Maritza and Mateo knew from the start of the wedding process that they did not want the ‘big’ wedding but instead something that defined their bohemian chic.

They invited their immediate family only to attend a very intimate ceremony at a private Parisian Chapel last May.  With a classical guitarist to accompany the ceremony the couple said their I do’s in front of this select group.





After the ceremony the guests got a private tour of Paris in a vintage blue bus while the couple went around the city with Lifestories for a photo and video shoot.




A few hours later the group met up in a gilded salon in a hotel for a private dinner under a crystal chandelier.

After a meal filled with classic French cuisine, champagne and fine French wines, guests were treated to a beautiful wedding cake from Synie’s.  Congratulations to the happy couple!
