Love in the Lubéron

Megan and Nick celebrated their wedding this July in a beautiful hillside village in southern France. With their closest friends and family, the couple shared their vows in s private garden with magnificent views of the surrounding vineyards and hills. Megan wore a beautiful retro gown which was actually two separate pieces.  The top was designed by the Parisian wedding dress créatrice Delphine Manivet, and the skirt was then made to match in the States.

A Scottish Invasion

We had the pleasure of welcoming Sean and James all the way from Scotland for their wedding this past May.  Guests enjoyed a beautiful ceremony in the garden of a private mansion next to the Musée d’Orsay followed by cocktails, dinner, dancing and much laughter!

Dancing took place in the caves where guests continued the celebration with drinks (whisky anyone?), dancing, and a beautiful Tiffany blue wedding cake.

Provençal Wedding

After an elegant rehearsal dinner the night before, the sun was shining again for Lauren and Arnaud’s wedding day. The scene was perfectly set. Blue sky and Cabro d’Or’s lush green foliage made the perfect back drop for Laetitia C.‘s fairytale decorations: arbors and archways dripping with luscious purple blooms, chairs decked with cheerful nosegays and even every candelbra wasn’t left untouched by her wand.

Lauren and Arnaud certainly did not disappoint such enchanting scenery.

Leah & Matt featured on French Wedding Style and Madame C.!

Remember Leah and Matt’s rustic chic wedding we had pleasure of putting together? We know that we were very happy with the way the day turned out, so we are flattered to see their celebration garnering some attention in the blogosphere. Both Monique at French Wedding Style and Le Blog de Madame C. recently highlighted the lovely little Provencal wedding on their websites. With additional details and personal commentary from the bride, you can almost pretend you were at estate in the south of France with the couple on there special day, almost.

We can’t help but smile at the bride’s gracious mentions of us -

There a lots more lovely photos and colorful depictions of the day in both articles- check them out here and here!

Rustic Chic in Provence

We just had the pleasure of planning a rustic chic wedding for a lovely couple from Toronto, Leah and Matt.  The two had originally began their wedding plans with their native city in mind, but as the guest list (and therefore, expenses!) kept expanding, a very appealing alternative option presented itself: to get married in France!

A Particularly Charming and Cheerful Yellow Celebration

Sometimes, there are those events that are so full of love and positive emotion, you can’t help but walk away from them with a smile. Such was the case with Aki and Ambroise’s wedding we recently had the pleasure of creating. Currently living in Hong Kong, the couple has a rich international experience that was full of inspiration.
