Authentic Provence Wedding Inspiration

Said best by La Fabrique A Reves… Provence is one of those lands you can never really get tired of seeing. It’s got that old world kind of charm that radiates a timelessness and goes hand in hand with weddings. It’s a destination where al fresco receptions are a plenty and organic bloomage from L’art Qui Pousse fits right in. So, my amours, head to THE VAULT gallery from Le Secret D’Audrey for more!

From La Fabrique A Reves… Provence is one of those lands you can never really get tired of seeing, hearing about and working in when you’re lucky enough. And it also remains our playground when it comes to create beauty within an authentic landscape and environment. Inspiration comes by itself rather you find an old Bastide full of history or green spaces filled with century-old olive trees, lavender field…

We all fell in love with Château Margüi when we first visited it as we were looking for a new treasure for our Perfect Harmony shooting. We choose warm colourful flowers and lots of greenery from the very talented l’Art Qui Pousse florist while playing with materials to fit with the natural elements such as this incredible stoned table. Our main focus as always was to beautified the scenery and give it our light signature while respecting the history and soul of the venue.

From The Bride…João and I met in 2007 when we were both living in Europe. As our love was born there, our biggest dream for as long as we could remember was to gather our family and friends in a very special place which represented the story of our lives together.

I first visited Provence a few years ago when traveling with friends and was immediately fascinated by the region…its bucolic scenery, light, picturesque villages, whether,  and energy were forever set in my memory.

When we started looking for our wedding venue, Provence’s landscape quickly came into my mind. Since Joao had not been there yet we planned a trip do Southern France and bingo: he also fell in love with it! Provence was definitely the place of our dreams!

We knew that it would be close to impossible to organize a wedding being 9000 km away and without knowing anyone in the area…so shortly before our trip we searched the web and found WEP of our dearest Stephanie.

And once again we hit it big time, as from our first contact, Stephanie efficiently met all our needs and solved our questions, plus she managed to pick up with such sensibility what we were looking and wished for our wedding, along with her exceptional suppliers, that we fell really assured even from a distance. Stephanie was definitely our fairy godmother in Provence!

The outcome of our partnership could not be different, our big day was much more special than we expected. When you have the man of your life by your side, the place of your dreams, a scenery from the movies, excellent professionals, one can certainly imagine that it would be amazing…but when all of that dream comes true, and on top of that you get to feel the energy and emotion of 90 special guests coming from very far away to celebrate YOUR LOVE, then it’s the best feeling ever, magical, one that is impossible to put into words. It was definitely the best day of our lives!

Romantic Anniversary in Provence

You know what’s on the tippy top of my life wish list? A trip to Provence with my hubby. So this anniversary session beautifully captured by Gert Huygaerts is like watching a dream unfold. Gorgeous images, gorgeous countryside, gorgeous couple – doesn’t get any better.


From Gert Huygaerts PhotographyThe beautiful anniversary of Chad and Thao in the Provence lavender fields. The story behind this report by Thao:

From The Bride…Chad and I started dating in our first year of college. After graduation, I moved to Boston to pursue my master’s degree while he raced motorcross professionally and started up a business. We maintained the long distance relationship for five years before he proposed and I moved back to Vermont to start our lives together.

MARRIAGE MATTERS ~ This October, we will be celebrating our 14th wedding anniversary.

A few years ago I ran across a picture on Instagram of a beautiful lavender field that seemed to go on forever and fell in love with the idea of going there. I did a little research and learned that it was in the Provence region of France. I heard wonderful things about Provence but it had not been on my list of places to visit until I saw that picture. Since we graduated from college we have made it a point to go away together once a year, just the two of us to reconnect and enjoy each other’s company. For the past 16 years, we have taken our vacations in the fall to avoid the crowds, to celebrate our anniversary and the timing fit well into our work schedules. The lavender season runs from mid-June to late July so this would be our first summer vacation together. It is a challenge for him to take time off in the summer but he saw how much it meant to me and gave me the green light to begin planning. The thoughts of frolicking through lavender fields made the cold winter months in Vermont bearable and got me through busy season.

We had an incredible trip! We visited quaint Provencal towns, wandered through farmer markets, took midnights strolls, and ate way too many gelatos and macarons. We walked through sunflower fields, olive groves, and watch sunsets from the lavender fields. The lavender smelled as wonderful as it looked and there’s nothing quite like the humming of the buzzing bees.

MARRIAGE MATTERS ~ The best part of the trip was just spending time together without the distraction of work. I am truly thankful that our paths crossed in that business class so many years ago. He has been my best friend for more than half my life and my family loves him as much as I do.

……. As Phoebe from Friends would say, “He’s my lobster.”
