Provence chateau wedding
From: Atlanta, USA | Days: 4 | Guests: 53 | Vendors: 23
“IT WAS BETTER THAN WE COULD HAVE IMAGINED. THANK YOU FOR HELPING US BRING EVERYONE TOGETHER IN SUCH A BEAUTIFUL SETTING. OUR HEARTS ARE SO FULL.”
We thoroughly enjoyed planning this stunning, intimate 4 days wedding in one of the most magnificent and thought after chateau vineyard near Aix-en-Provence.
K&W came to us from Atlanta to plan their intimate wedding in the South of France. After reviewing a selection of beautiful venues we short listed for them, they chose this beautiful venue from photos. They later said that the venue in real life looked even more gorgeous than it did on pictures…
With all guests travelling from the US, the celebrations were planned over 4 days, with a boat cruise on the mediterranean for the girls and a karting race for the boys on the first day, a welcome dinner on a typical fountain square in Aix-en-Provence on the second night, the wedding on the third day, and a brunch on the fourth day. As the couple’s French wedding planners, we planned and managed their whole stay and made sure that everyone was attended to and had the best time ever in Provence.
On her wedding day, the bride wore the gorgeous Elina tulle gown by Jenny Packham, matched with some gold leaf adorned veil.
The ceremony was set by the orangery on the grounds of the venue. True to our style of enhancing a space natural beauty, we had the orangery decorated with a triptych of foliage and flowers following the windows arches, which looked like it had always been there. A carpet of flower petals added to the natural beauty of the space. At the end of the ceremony, guests held some typical provencal arches above the newly weds’ heads as a local send off.
After ceremony guests were served champagne and canapés by the chateau’s majestic fountain, beautifully decorated with flowers.
The dinner was set on one of the terraces of the venue, overlooking the French gardens and the love dome. Gold stars were hung from the ceiling of fairy lights as a reminder of the bride’s beautiful hair piece.
After dinner, the guests were invited to dance under a canopy of fairy lights and a giant disco ball. Cigars, leather sofas, a photo booth and an open bar accompanied the evening until the little hours of the night.
