Fair warning—if you are dying to get married in Paris, this slice of inspiration from Rebecca Yale and Vanessa & Caroline will send you over the edge. Or, maybe you’ll dive head first (we would). Because really, it’s just too difficult to resist bridal portraits in gilded rooms and equally charming dinner scenes like this, followed by macarons galore, of course—we get it. Go on, pin your heart out in The Vault destination dreamers.
From Vanessa et Caroline… I loved the Pavillon de Musique de la Comtesse du Barry from the moment I stepped into the garden with the beautiful fountain and the view over this gorgeous historical building. Inside the architecture is fit for a princess and feels like you’ve stepped into a fairytale with beautiful paintings on the walls, gold mouldings and rich blue. The Pavillon de Musique is the perfect combination of a classic french venue and a magnificent garden, just outside of Paris. We were inspired by the contrast in the venue of the chequered floors, the deep blue curtains in one room and hard wood floors, and the white and gold mouldings in the dining room. We used that contrast in the design of our inspiration editorial by mixing gold and silver on the table, styling a glamorous and sexy bride in a gorgeous Inbal Dror gown with a soft princess-like hair and makeup with gold floral pins in her loose updo. The gown featured a delicate lace back, which was echoed in the delicate lace of the invitation envelope and the delicate beading of the blush pink bridal shoes. In addition to a beautiful gold and white cake decorated with white sugar flowers we created a dessert display in the dining room with the classic french dessert, macarons, the perfect way to end a lovely Parisian wedding!
