The French countryside inspired this design. Many of our clients are looking to host a Château Wedding Just Outside Paris. Champagne is the perfect location. Just about two hours from Paris by train, it holds countryside charm. While France is home to many beautiful and historic buildings, often the most highlighted weddings are the most opulent. The venue is often a castle like châteaux with opulent, over the top designs. My muse for this design was a bride who was less concerned about making an over the top statement. Instead, she was more concerned with creating something that felt intimate, romantic, and true to the region.
With this in mind, we chose soft french blue, blush, gold, and dove grey as our color palette. The table featured a soft blue linen balanced with romantic dove velvet napkins. The vintage crystal glassware and french blue china is part of Château de Mairy’s own collection. It created a very intimate feel. We paid this with lush white blooms and handmade paper goods from Michaela McBride Calligraphy. The tablescape was romantic, relatable, and perfectly French.
Our bride wore two beautiful gowns. The first dress was a simple tulle tea length gown. It was perfect for getting ready or wandering the halls of her château. We opted to design a floral installation in her bedroom to create an added sense of romance. Her wedding gown is the masterpiece of Alon Livne. The off-the-shoulder pleated detail made this gown the perfect fashion statement. It was fit for a bride getting married just miles outside of Paris. Our groom wore a classic black tux to perfectly balance her fashion-forward look. Her hair was styled in a sleek and romantic updo. We paired this with minimal bridal makeup to create an undeniable “french girl” glam. The bride’s architectural gown inspired the cake design.
