Colorful French Chateau Wedding Inspiration

Chateau de Varennes, a beautiful 18th century chateau in the heart of the French countryside, set the stage for today’s incredible inspiration shoot photographed by Tara Francis Photography at the Sylvia Gil Workshop. Designing with the juxtaposition of vivid colors against a romantic landscape, Jesse Tombs from Alison Events created a farm style tabletop with mustard and bubble gum linens from La Tavola, turquoise glassware, and mixed wood and leather seating. Colorful blooms and hand-dipped taper candles from Holly Flora completed the eclectic look. Wooden flatware and acrylic tortoiseshell were etched as place cards by Yonder Design, and menus were printed on cloth favor bags. The gorgeous surroundings lend themselves to exquisite finery, and a tiered lace Oscar De La Renta gown didn’t disappoint. We are swept away by each graceful image by Tara Francis Photography!

Elegant California Villa Wedding

Christine and Daniel’s wedding is equal parts romantic, dreamy, and classic. With the beautiful villa and gardens of Villa Montalvo as the setting and perfect Northern California weather provided by the month of May, the couple’s graceful ivory and blush color palette came to life within the lush green foliage. Charmed Events Group brought the elegant setting to life with lace linens from La Tavola, a dramatic draped arch decked with greenery and florals by Tango & Foxtrot, and fresh, clean centerpieces of peonies, garden roses, and ranunculus. A gorgeous lace-embellished cake from Studio Cake completed the scene. Christine is radiant in a sophisticated Allure gown to match Daniel’s chic black tux, and to honor their heritage, both donned traditional Korean wedding attire from LeeHwa Wedding for an incredible sunset portrait session. We are completely in love with every moment captured by Danielle Poff Photography!

Lush Garden Wedding in Los Angeles

Erin and David selected the elegant Belmond El Encanto in Santa Barbara for their July nuptials. Erin was inspired by the idea of a Southern garden—lush, lively, and romantic—and worked with Precious & Blooming to craft a “perfectly imperfect” feel, mixing white, ivory, and light gold blooms, surrounded by swaths of greenery. After a showstopping ceremony set around the lily pond with a dramatic altar draped with fabric and dressed with greenery, guests enjoyed a cocktail hour with “Babes and Bombers” cocktails (a nod to their softball team) and a Polaroid guest book, before moving inside the ballroom for the reception, where they danced the night away to the tunes of Gold Standard. Erin shares “The end of the night was one of my favorite memories. There was a grand piano in our venue and our best man, Matthew Walker, started playing. Everyone gathered around and sang along with him to “Rocket Man” while I sat on the piano, straight out of an old movie. At the top of the chorus, everyone would through petals in the air, making the most incredible smelling confetti.” We are smitten with every gorgeous image from Jillian Rose Photography!

    Destination Wedding at Tuscan Villa

    Laura and Stephen, both physicians living in London, couldn’t think of anywhere more romantic to be married than the picturesque rolling hills of Tuscany. The couple selected Villa Medicea di Lilliano just outside of Florence—a working vineyard—for their destination wedding, and 100 of their nearest and dearest made the journey to Italy to celebrate! The feel of the day was low key but chic, and Jardin Divers enhanced the natural beauty of the surroundings with centerpieces of olive leaves and leafy, natural bouquets to accentuate the bridesmaids’ Ghost dresses and Laura’s Maggie Sottero gown. We’re simply smitten with each image by Stefano Santucci Studio!
