There was a time when we probably overused the word ‘smitten’ in our features, but I’m bringing it back today. This fete from bonphotage has me 110% smitten. As if the setting at Chateau Bouthonvilliers wasn’t gorgeous enough, the Bride is an absolute beauty in her Lazaro dress, the florals by Floresie are to-die and then you have moments like this and this that will have you on the edge of tears. Get your full dose of pretty in the gallery!
From bonphotage… I am so excited to submit this real wedding which took place at Chateau Bouthonvilliers in the French Countryside! I literally squealed when these film scans landed in my inbox from Richard Photo Lab! Like a scene out of a fairy tale, guests arrived through the long tree-lined driveway and were met with waiters serving champagne. Guests entered into a lounge area set in front of the chateau for perfectly French appetizers of foie gras and duck pate. Surrounding the guests on the far sides were beautiful horses and all white cows, owned by the chateau owners whose family has lived at the property for over 200 years. Quite possibly the most beautiful wedding I’ve had the privilege of covering, Nicole + Tarik’s special day was nothing short of a dream! The ceremony took place by the chapel steps at the historic Chateau Bouthonvilliers in the French Countryside. It had been raining in the morning but the skies opened up with the perfect amount of sun and light breeze right before they said “I do” (a film photographer’s dream!)
The flowers from Floresie were out of this world (see her bouquet!!) and I absolutely cannot forget Nicole’s blush Lazaro dress which literally stopped me in my tracks! Every detail was accounted for, from the oval emerald stunning engagement ring, to the hand calligraphed vow books to the studded louboutins, and all of it was perfectly executed by Mayra from The Event House.
