From Anne-Sophie of Ela & the Poppies Photography... Magali, the bride, and Guillaume, the groom, are ski and mountain lovers, so they decided to have this intimate wedding in the ski resort of Chamrousse on March 31st. Chamrousse is a typical alpine village, with chalets and a specific atmosphere. We took advantage of the beautiful natural site for the couple's photo shoot: pines, snow and even the chairlift was used for the session. They did an amazing job decorating the restaurant based on mountain inspiration. Lanterns, mountains names on slates for the tables names, candles, pine cones, a fingerprint tree, wood and pine branches to indicate guests places, an old window as a seating plan, and an amazing view of the mountains... Everything was perfect, as the weather was wonderful with just the right amount of snow. It was really a perfect day...
