Black Tie French Chateau Wedding

If I were to plan a destination wedding, there is no question that it would be in France. With guests from every corner of the globe in attendance, this gorgeous duo pulled off one dreamy affair. Christina Brosnan captured the magic at Chateau De Robernier and the gallery is filled with one perfect moment after another.

From Christina BrosnanHaving met in New York City and now residing in the Netherlands, Lacey and JM decided to continue their global love story by marrying at the stunning Chateau De Robernier just outside Cotignac, France. The chateau was the perfect setting for their black tie party. The ceremony took place outside the entrance to the chateau and after a few photos down in the vineyards it was back up to the courtyard for dinner under the stars.

Glamorous Destination Wedding in Paris

New Year’s Eve calls for a little dose of glitz and glamour, and this bride’s Amanda Wakeley gown most certainly hits the mark. It’s the ultimate frock for a Parisian “I do,” and thanks to the talented Mon Plus Beau Jour, the whole day (rain and all!) was a dream brought to life. Mademoiselle Fiona captured the magic, and it’s all sitting right over here.

From Mademoiselle Fiona Wedding Photography… Gillian+Josh are from Canada and gathered their loved ones in Paris for a lovely, stylish, intimate wedding. They had planned an outdoor ceremony in a little garden tucked away in Le Marais, but it poured pretty much the entire day. Thankfully they had the right attitude and the right planner, and no bad weather could put a damper on the festivities. The ceremony was moved to a beautiful apartment, and although we weren’t able to go to all our originally planned locations, sometimes the impromptu ones are the most fun.

From The Bride… Growing up I never had a vision for my dream wedding. It was not until Josh proposed to me in our apartment after a Saturday night couples session of hot yoga that the wheels began to turn. We knew we wanted a small intimate wedding and realized a destination wedding would accomplish just that.

We went through a list of potential destinations and when Paris came up it just made perfect sense. Paris is always a good idea. We wanted to create an atmosphere for our day that was simple, understated, elegant, and unstuffy, and Verjus provided just that. Although we had never been to Verjus, we instantly fell in love with its photos online as it reminded us of our favorite restaurant in Toronto. Being from Canada we knew we would need some help with the planning.

After speaking with Marie-Emilie from Mon Plus Beau Jour it immediately became clear she was the person for the task. She made the process simple, seamless, and fun. Her most outstanding recommendation to use Mademoiselle Fiona for our photos was incredibly on point. The ceremony in our Paris rental apartment could not have been any more perfect. With a live acoustic rendition of Skinny Love to walk down a rose petal aisle, with all of the people we love and each other- it was everything. For the reception I chose peonies in simple vases for their connection to my grandmother. She grew countless peonies at her nursery when I was a kid. Fiona captured the overwhelming love shared with our family and friends and the absolute joy had by all.

We will never forget that rainy day in Paris. It has left an indelible mark in our hearts and tremendous fond memories will stay with us forever.

Elegant Private Chateau Wedding

I’m pretty sure I dream of France daily; the food, the wine, fashion and macaroons. And this wedding, at a private French chateau, is all of those dreams in one beyond beautiful place. Orchestrated by Fete in France and documented by Ian Holmes, this blush and gold celebration has me absolutely breathless. I refuse to accept post-holiday reality just yet so this gallery is where I’ll (gladly) remain.

From Fête In France… All-American Linsay and Brazilian Leo met and fell in love in the US but are currently based in Rio De Janeiro . The couple along with Leo’s family and friends came from Brazil to have their September wedding in France while Linsay’s family traveled from the US.

The couple privatized a beautiful chateau in the lush green Normandy countryside for their wedding weekend where they could also sleep all of their guests on site. The festivities began on Friday night with a BBQ and cocktails by the pool. On Saturday following hair and make-up Linsay and Leo met for an intimate first look with photographer Ian Holmes.

The ceremony seating was a mix of chairs and loveseats borrowed from the chateau along with custom made pillows designed by the bride herself for a fun touch. The sculpted hedges in the garden created a natural archway and were draped with fabric and flowers to create a gorgeous backdrop for the wedding ceremony. A jazz trio played for the ceremony and the couple celebrated at the end of the ceremony by exiting to a jazz version of ‘Happy’ by Pharrell Williams.

In lieu of traditional place cards, a Polaroid camera was passed around to take funny pictures of each guest with props during the cocktail hour. In the dining room each guest had a Ladurée macaron in the pastel colors of the wedding at their seat. The pictures were then placed in the macaron at the dinner table for guest to find their picture at their seat. The romantic floral decor in the blush, peach, ivory and gold tones made for an elegant reception table.

The couple opted for the classic french Croquembouche as their wedding cake which was presented with the traditional sparklers. The couple and guests then danced late into the night.
