Josh Goodman Photography sent us this next pretty wedding and it is positively glowing with elegance and charm. The Bride’s family reigns from France so as a special nod to her loved ones, the couple crafted a day reminiscent of the French countryside. Wine, wildflowers, alfresco dining… we’re talking the works and you can soak it all in in the gallery.

From Josh Goodman Photography… Christine and Julien are very special clients to us.  Their love for each other runs so deep that when we first met them we just knew that they were meant to be together.  They had a lot of fun preparing for their wedding. They actually hand made their own unique rings at a metal casting shop. The rings were moulded and cast in gold from a twig that fell from the sycamore tree under which they were married!  They made the marmalade wedding favors for their guests as well.

Their wedding was on a gorgeous day in Malibu, CA at the Adamson House.  Julien’s family is from France, so their touching ceremony was conducted in both English and French.  Christine and Julien hand raised dozens of butterflies so that they could release them towards the end of their ceremony. Afterwards, they had a beautiful “French countryside” inspired reception.  The chalkboards at each table say the word “Love” in different languages…such a cute idea!  Christine and Julien carried the butterfly theme from their ceremony over to their reception by having butterfly embellished chocolate cakes at each table.
