Provence Is Where Wedding Dreams Come True

I’d put money down on the fact that Provence is on every single person’s wanderlust wish list. And after seeing these pics by Tamara Gruner, how could anyone disagree? Weddings of Excellence in Provence was the force behind this inspiration shoot, giving us endless beauty to inspire. Eager to bring your wishes to reality? Read on for info on Tamara Gruner’s Workshop where you too can capture the magic of this special place next May. Oh and PS. More Provencal treats coming to our Front Page later today :)

From Tamara Gruner PhotographyWedding inspiration: Inspired by the soft color palette of Provence we chose ivory, green, blush and peach as our main colors for this soft and romantic wedding inspiration shoot. Our venue, La Coquillade, with its beautiful and romantic nooks in every corner, was the perfect setting for this Provencal wedding. The ceremony, nestled in the midst of a blooming lavender field and olive trees, was the perfect backdrop for our pretty couple. The bride’s dress, a Musat Bridal gown, with fine lace elements and a romantic fabric – flowing with the wind – makes our dream look complete. The bride’s classic updo and her beautiful jewelry complements the bride’s delicate face. The groom in his elegant black tux presents himself as Prince Charming. The cake and invitation suite adds a classy touch to the whole inspiration. The pretty table setup, with the soft flowers and classic tabletop with its typical Provencal candle holders, continues our romantic look and feel. The table overlooks the mesmerizing Provencal vineyards – the perfect location to bring a perfect day to a close.

Our next workshop will be held in Provence, France in May 7-10th, 2017.

Charming France Destination Wedding

Just imagine, escaping to the Talloires, France and vowing forever with the one you love, incredible scenery and all. That’s exactly what Kat and Sam’s wedding looked like, and BrittRene Photo captured as the entire adventure.


From BrittRene PhotoIf France wasn’t already an ideal place to get married, Kat and Sam chose Talloires because it was where their romance began. And I was lucky enough to capture it all!

“After a weekend watching the final of the Tour de France in Paris together we decided 2 days wasn’t enough and extended the trip by jumping on a train to join a family holiday in the Alps. After a few days of hiking and canyoning in the mountains we cycled down to the lake which is where the romance blossomed with a kiss on Lake Annecy just a few 100 meters from the wedding venue.”

A Glamorous Wedding Inspiration in the City of Lights

There’s something about Paris that pulls at our heart strings and thankfully Loli Events and Sylvie Gil Photography agree. Creating and capturing beauty in the city of lights, this is one imaculate inspiration that you’re sure to go mad(eleine) for. See it all in The Vault!

From Loli EventsParis overflows with historical monuments and epic love stories. That is why the city of lights attracts couples from all around the world every year to celebrate love!

One of our favorite venues is the beautiful Pavillon de Musique de la Comtesse du Barry. Located right outside Paris, it is the perfect combination of intimate gardens and historical interiors. And wait until you read about the love story behind it…

After the passing of his latest wife, the King Louis XV was introduced to Jeanne, the countess of Barry and fell in love with her kindness, beauty and generosity. Jeanne received a refined education that awakened her to the Fine Arts and music. Tall and elegant, this lovely blond with a clear complexion and sparkling blue eyes full of intelligence and fineness was what we call, here at Loli Events, our kind of lady!

In 1769, Louis XV offered Jeanne the Pavillon des Eaux in Louveciennes (Luciennes at that time). Finding it a little too small for her receptions, the countess of Barry easily obtained from her madly-in-love King, the authorization to construct a little pavillon so she could decently receive her guests. The plans were entrusted to a young architect, Claude-Nicolas Ledoux.

Keeping in mind Jeanne’s love for receptions, we envisioned this styled shoot to have a romantic touch and an iconic Parisian fashion feel for a lovely and intimate dinner.

With her expert eye, the very talented Sylvie Gil captured all the details that make this venue so special. Meanwhile, the Lily Paloma team worked their magic once again to create an amazing composition that brought a natural and summery atmosphere in the room.

With the help of Vaisselle Vintage rentals and the couture gowns from Loho Bride, we were able to capture a perfect mix of luxurious antique-chic vibes.

This is how we imagined a modern Jeanne, in her Pavillon, throwing a private dinner on a very special summer day.
