Chic Shoes + Pink Peonies Set Our Stylish Hearts Aflutter

What do you get when you take a gorgeous English Bride and her dapper Groom, add in some very, very chic fashion choices (hello Inbal Dror!) and place them all in a “is this even real life” French chateau? One wedding to remember. French Grey Photography and Zen Film Works captured all of the dreams as they came true at Chateau La Duratie and our Vault is looking quite fashionably fine with it all!

From French Grey Photography… The late spring wedding of this fashion-oriented bride and groom from England was my first wedding of the year at Chateau la Durantie. The Chateau and the stylish couple went hand in hand and the event was filled with beautiful details on every level! The bride wore a very sexy and form fitting Inbal Dror gown and the groom matched his bride’s sexiness with his Louboutin red soled shoes.

Every space in the Chateau was filled with beautiful florals that made the place smell incredible. And the stylish guests enjoyed the atmosphere in this French Chateau until the very early hours of the morning!

Peonies, Paper Parasols & A White Horse. This Wedding is a Fairytale IRL

You know that wedding you dreamed about as a little girl. Simply put…this is it. An epic high-low dress. Pink peonies by the buckets – quite literally. Floating paper parasols above an al fresco reception. And a white horse with flower-adorned mane. I can hardly believe this day is real life, so join me in the gallery by Peter & Veronika to see for yourself.

From The Bride…Our wedding was about being with our friends and family and celebrating in a beautiful place. Working in food, I definitely wanted that to be a big part of the week. Will proposed in provence at the hotel de tourrel (location of our rehearsal dinner) so it made sense for us to return to a place that was so magical for us. We tried to show our friends and family the best of what we had experienced there. I have incredibly talented bridesmaids who helped with so many of the aspects of the wedding from hair and makeup to flowers.

Rain Has Never Looked So Good

Life happens, the good, the bad, the messy, and all the beautiful bits in between. It’s easy to let dreams fall by the wayside but this married couple refused to let go on their plans to visit Paris. And when they did, Peter and Veronika joined in to photograph what they thought would be warm, sun drenched snaps. But Mother Nature has the final say and in came rain… much to the camera lens’ luck. Rain looks good on these two and these pics,and this story, are officially my new, inspired #relationshipgoals.

From the Bride…  Since we just got married, it has been my dream to travel to Paris for our five year anniversary. Five years went by and the trip just didn’t seem realistic. We just had our second baby, bought our first home and I was really sick earlier that year so traveling across the globe was not even in the conversation. But the desire in my heart was still there, quietly tugging at me.

One night after a conversation with a close friend, I decided that unless I took some sort of action towards making this travel dream a reality, it was always going to be just a dream. So I started a little savings envelope towards that trip and put money aside every chance I got, skipping nail appointments and passing up the opportunity to buy new clothes. Almost two years later, we finally had enough to comfortably travel Europe for close to three weeks and so we set off on our anniversary adventure.

This trip was so special to us! We both were ready to slip away from reality and everyday busyness and focus on each other and invest in our friendship. It was really refreshing to be able to leave the kids and go adventure together, just the two of us. Stay out late, ride bicycles, and do other normal activities that get a little complicated to enjoy once you have two babes at your hip.

Paris was everything I had imagined. It stole my heart, just like I knew it would. I fell madly in love with the old, charming city. Being a photographer myself, I couldn’t imagine being in Paris and not taking the opportunity to to get our photos taken to save these memories forever. The shoot was not at all what we had anticipated. The weather changed dramatically before the shoot. I imagined warm, golden photos but in the end it turned out way more romantic than we could ever imagine.

I was really concerned with how we’d look on photos being totally soaked in the pouring rain. My hair literally looked like I just stepped out of the shower! But the photos turned out beautiful. The best part of the shoot (aside from the fact that our photographer was down for anything!) was that we had SO MUCH FUN! The rain seriously didn’t bother us one bit. My husband and I really enjoyed just being together, holding hands, kissing, and running around in the rain. I felt young and free. That was the best thing.

The photos turned out wonderful but the experience of running around in the rain with my love, after being married for seven years and having two kids, it was unforgettable. Life gets so busy sometimes and it’s so easy to get carried away with everyday tasks that we forget to enjoy those simple moments and to just let lose and be wild with the one you love.
