From Greg Finck PhotographyCandice comes from Hawaii and Pierre from Lyon, France. They met some years ago in Paris as Candice is a fashion hairdresser in the city. I personally met Candice via various fashion shoots and that’s when she asked me if I would accept to be their wedding photographer. They will be getting married in the vineyards near Lyon beginning of May. In the meantime they wanted to realize their engagement shoot in Paris.

It’s not that easy to find awesome light in the City in March, but we were very lucky that day. It was a sunshiny day and we even had to wait for late in the afternoon to start shooting, as light was pretty harsh until 5pm. I really wanted to capture the blossoming cherry trees, as Candice has a beautiful cherry tree branch tattooed on her forearm. It means a lot to her and that’s the reason why I wanted to have cherry trees in the background, all in capturing some typical Parisian monuments.

Our walkaway took us from the Eiffel Tower, to Les Tuileries, where Candice&Pierre stopped to have a cup of Champagne. We ended up on Alexandre III bridge to admire the sunset on the Seine river and the end of a beautiful day.

Multicultural South of France Wedding

I think it’s safe to say that this wedding will sit high atop my favorites list for a long, long time. First off, Ann-Kathrin Koch, you’ve stolen my heart with your insanely gorgeous moments. And the South of France? With surroundings as pretty as this, a simplistic approach to decor complemented by lush florals from 1000 Fleurs was all this fete needed. The result is breathtaking.

From the beautiful Bride… We live in NYC but our gracious and kind aunt and uncle opened up their French country home in the south of France for our wedding. A bit off the beaten path an hour south of Toulouse in a town called Castelnaudary. A region known for its rolling hills of sun-flower fields, and le cassoulet, a rich French casserole with duck and sausage.

My goal was to achieve as classic and natural a look as possible! I envisioned Carolyn Bessette Kennedy in her wedding gown—how modern and elegant she looked! Both the veil and hair-piece were custom made by Sara Gabriel; shoes by Valentino. The bridesmaids wore Jenny Yoo dresses that were convertible, as well as jewelry from Lizzie Fortunato Jewels, a NYC jewelry designer and longtime girlfriend of one of Josh’s groomsmen.

I was less interested in the “major” wedding gown stores where it felt intimidating and a bit less personal. So I searched for smaller and unique boutiques and found a quaint, warm wedding gown boutique centrally located in Soho New York. I knew I wanted a gown that was simple, with contrasting lines, and a silhouette that was elegant and timeless. I ended up choosing a gown by Ulla Maija called the Felicite. It was simple and unassuming and had a detachable train that I could take on and off if I wanted more of a punch!

The photographer was actually one of the vendors I spent the most time making sure to get it right. We spoke with quite a few different photographers that we were recommended as well as one’s we found on wedding blogs in the U.S., and U.K. After sifting through portfolio after portfolio we ended up choosing Ann because of her approach to photography. We really wanted to avoid using anyone that was on the “cheesy” side, albeit all wedding pictures can be a bit cheesy to begin with! Ann was fantastic at capturing candid moments and the natural beauty of the setting in France. Ann has a laid back style, where she fit’s right in and has a great eye for detail. We absolutely loved the story that Ann ended up capturing on camera for us. It was as if we were re-living the event from start to finish!

We had 3 groomsmen and 3 bridesmaids. The bridesmaids wore Jenny Yoo convertible dresses in blush and charcoal, with earrings and necklaces by Lizzie Fortunato Jewels. The groomsmen wore a combination of heather grey suits with a matching blush tie by Emerillo Zegna.

Overall the surroundings really were the theme, with us adding accents and details to bring out the natural beauty. We didn’t have to do too much, but the tables really turned out beautiful with the chic flower arrangements and rustic finishes.

1000 Fleurs, a local florist in the town of Castelnaudary was our florist. She did a wonderful job helping put together bouquets that had warm earthy tones, such as faded pinks and blushes. We brought all of the tins, vases, and table arrangements for the tables, and the florist added her beautiful arrangements to them. We had a few finishing touches of burlap and ribbon runners, and lavender tied in bunches to the end of the tables and chairs.

We had a lovely outdoor ceremony and were fortunate to have good Fall weather. Our favorite part of our wedding was reading our vows that we wrote ourselves. We also had a reading from Paulo Coehlo’s The Alchemist. We loved having an intimate small wedding of just 50, which allowed us to connect and spend time with each of our guest’s throughout the evening and the weekend. The sun came out just as we screamed Mazel Tov, and we were on cloud nine (or the dance floor) the rest of the night!
