If anything, this is truly what elopement dreams are made of! From the gorgeous chateau views to the natural elegance of the outdoors. Getting eloped in a French castle is the most romantic of ways to celebrate your love story!
An intimate elopement shoot at the historical French castle is a dream come true. Inspired by nature, France and french art. We love this place so much and are inspired by château’s interiors and decor.
Domaine du Reveillon is a beautiful castle with family-owned history. The château has been in the same family for the last 150 years and has opulent interiors, particularly in the apartments.
The floral style by Emily Alarcon for this romantic shoot is inspired by the stunning views of the park and château. She created a wild natural look, mixed with delicate garden roses and greenery. We decided to use natural greenery from the château’s forest.
Alesia Solo, the wedding hair and makeup stylist, creates romantic soft curls for Valerie’s beautiful long blonde hair. Bride’s natural beauty just radiates and we love this soft natural look.
We can’t forget to mention how handsome this sunset ceremony was. The wild floral arch fits perfectly with the natural setting. Everything was kept simple, letting the stunning scenery speak for itself.
We had such an incredible time at Domaine du Reveillon and can’t wait to plan other château weddings here. Can we all agree this is the dreamiest location ever! One of the best french castle venues. What do you think about this wedding at a castle in France?
“A beautiful couple is walking up the steep trail at Enchanted Rock. He is in a perfectly fitted suit and she is in a gorgeous white wedding dress that’s flowing in the wind. If that sight doesn’t beg to be captured on camera, I don’t know what will! Princess and David dressed up in their full wedding attire for this newlywed shoot. This was a unique opportunity to take wedding photos in a spectacular location!
Princess and David booked me over a year ago, but due to special circumstances, they decided to get married privately instead. However, their love is still so worth capturing, so we decided to wait a while and do a shoot in their formal wear later on.
We met at Enchanted Rock for a day of hiking and taking photos. They were very nervous when we started, but they broke out of their shell quickly. Everything looked like a real-life fairytale. The bouquet, the flowing white fabric, the chivalrous gestures of David as he helped his bride along the way – and sometimes the other way around too. ???? I’ve walked this trail quite a few times, but never in formal attire, let alone a long wedding dress or heels! I have a whole new level of admiration for Princess and David!
The walk up to the summit was already quite picture-worthy, as they held hands and carried the picnic basket with them. At the top of the mountain, they opened the champagne bottle, had a little picnic and let me take more photos with a stunning view as the backdrop.
I haven’t had this much fun in a while! Because this wasn’t a traditional wedding shoot in the midst of a full day, I had way more time to play around with different lenses. I even got my film camera out! Princess and David are such a gift to each other, and I’m so glad they picked me to photograph them.”
“This collection of colors, textures and florals creates the dream fusion of a modern yet vintage wedding. There is something so pleasing about the bold punch of this color palette- he drastic black details created a clean and contemporary look. Florals from Birds of a Flower make sure that this dramatic aesthetic doesn’t get by without a touch of romance. Even the cake and signature drinks from Autumn Nomad were showered with flowers adding total sunshine vibes to the table arrangements.
The table set could not be complete without La Tavola Linens and Peak Event Services for providing all of the table essentials that make this design pop! There was no better place to set the scene but at The White Room which gives a sophisticated twist on the urban and industrial setting.
Utilizing contrasting elements was something I loved about this shoot, and what makes it stand out! This design work played with the idea of linear and circular, bold and delicate, rustic and chic, and modern yet vintage. The sleek tuxedos from 9 Tailors were a show stopping choice. The stationary from Timberwink Studio takes simplicity and turns it into a chic component of this shoot.”
So obsessed with all the dreamy styled wedding shoot that took place in Georgetown, Texas but has all the romantic feels of a Parisian wedding. We hope you love this wedding inspiration as much as we do!
“Beautiful French-inspired wedding at a renovated historical Texas venue. A true utopian feel in the middle of Central Texas is hard to find but this styled shoot was exactly that – showing couples you can achieve a very classic look, one to last you a lifetime, right here in Georgetown, Texas. All of the small details truly live and breath old country and it feels so much like a European wedding.”
“Alex and Madelaine had to cancel their big beautiful wedding due to the COVID. They had a small intimate backyard wedding in the bride’s parents house instead. All their guests as well as the groom’s family in Canada joined them virtually using Zoom.”
A pretty and rustic styled wedding inspiration at Linwood Country Club, New Jersey. Pretty flowers, jewellery, doughnuts, and a gorgeous venue. This is all the inspiration you need for a lovely intimate wedding.
High school sweethearts seal the deal in a wedding at Merchant’s Hall venue located in the heart of historic downtown Charleston! Amy & Xouchee’s love story began in middle school!! How sweet is that!! They started out as locker buddies at the age of 11, became close friends around 15, and then fell in love at 17! Over the years, their love has endured long distance and a cross country move to South Carolina. The sweethearts have been together for a decade now and have built a wonderful life in Charleston. In fact, they just bought their first home together! Nowadays, they spend their time working on home improvement projects (so many trips to Lowe’s), beach walks, and Wednesday date nights.
Amy knew the moment her and Xouchee became friends that he was special. He always went above and beyond to make sure she felt loved and cared for, even before they officially started dating. The surprise proposal came right before they were about to go home to Wisconsin for Christmas last year. They had planned to have their own personal celebration before they started the craziness of holiday traveling. They went for a nice dinner downtown and afterwards decided to walk around and enjoy the Christmas lights. This is when Xouchee proposed under the glowing lights of the big Christmas tree in Marion Square. Amy was super impressed that Xouchee was able to surprise her! She absolutely adored the stunning ring he had picked out for her. Furthermore, the timing made for such a special holiday season home sharing the good news with their loved ones.
Before the big day, Amy met with me for a bridal portrait session. It’s a popular bridal tradition in the South. I just adore the one on one time I got to have with her! And what bride doesn’t want to wear her dress twice! It was also a perfect time for Amy’s hair and makeup trial. Amy was very smart and booked her venue as our portrait location. It was a good move as it was an overcast and rainy day too! If you haven’t visited Merchant’s Hall near the historic market in downtown Charleston you should. It’s a real show stopper with multiple crystal chandeliers, original wood columns, and exposed brick walls. When the rain took a break, we took to the street to get some bridal portraits with a historic downtown Charleston Wedding vibe as well.
Charleston Wedding Day
Merchant’s Hall was a perfect choice of wedding venue for giving out of town guests a little taste of historic downtown Charleston. Some other Charleston elements were sprinkled throughout the decor and food. For example, gilded oyster shells were used for the table place settings and sea shell tea light candles were wedding favors! The decor was simple but elegant with hues of blush, gold, ivory, and greenery. Guests were spoiled with donuts for dessert, a favorite of the groom who has a big sweet tooth! Overall, this highly anticipated union was a perfect fusion of two people from very different cultural/religious backgrounds coming together. Because of COVID their celebration was smaller than expected, looked different, but it was definitely all theirs!
The gardens of this contemporary Athenian villa located in the northern part of Athens sets the scene for this rustic glam inspired wedding editorial. An intimate setting where plush-green Hedera and the character of the Mediterranean pine trees creates an ambiance of a cheerful and fresh vibe that captures a subtle touch of timeless romance.
Stelios Tsikas Photography and team choose to showcase a primary color palette bringing together design elements of a garden setting for any couple who feel drawn by an intimate space, with an interesting play on texture and color. We could not resist adding a bursting flare of cuteness to the story with our couple honoring their furry friends as members of the family, bringing together a playful touch of happiness and personality! Capturing special moments like this makes our heart skip a beat! We drew inspiration from 3 different bridal gowns for a creative fusion of style, while featuring an unconventional spin to “mix and match” by displaying two different tableware settings.
A Classic yet romantic aura emanates with this boho-chic nude wedding dress! Handcrafted with silk tulle and embroidered with French Guipure lace elicits a delicate softness. The table, chairs and carpet provoke the rustic display of textures, as a light and clean sentiment enhances the vibrant colors of the floral center piece.
The mood and emotion shift with a luxurious journey into Regal elegance. Hand crafted in silk tule and embroidered with French lace, reveal intricate details by hand beaded crystal, feathers, and pearls. This is where inspiration shows an alternative twist on “mix and match” by pairing the Imperial Lomonosov Russian Porcelain (St. Petersburg 1744) tableware against the rustic texture of the table. A breezy atmosphere of delicately designed flower arrangements complements the decorative mood of the Ginger Jars. A dreamy twist on the traditional bouquet is given with the impressive addition of the pampas. Our wedding cake designers featured an elegantly blended hand painted work of art with details prompted by the Ginger Jars.
A fairy tale boho-chic wedding dress handcrafted with silk tulle and asymmetric ruffles and French lace compliment a stunning floral head piece that proclaims a bold statement of ethereal magic bringing to life whimsical feelings of warmth, through natures warm tones. We had a lot of fun creating this styled shoot and we are so grateful for the creative ideas everyone on the team brought to life.
Katie and Carter were married in Downtown Minneapolis at the Neu Neu. It was such a perfect fall day in MN! The couple opted to do a first look prior to their ceremony which is always one of my favorite moments to capture as a photographer! The colors in the floral and wedding party attire were beyond perfect and just a dream! During their ceremony Katie’s mom & Carter’s dad both read something special and the brothers of Carter performed a song. There was not a dry eye in the building! Following the ceremony guest enjoyed dinner, donuts and dancing!
Q1: Tell us about your wedding! What was the inspiration behind your day? Did you have a specific theme, style or color palette? Did you incorporate any cultural or religious traditions in any part of your day? A1: Our inspiration was to keep everything authentic and simple. We went with traditional fall colors for our color palette – burgundy, sage green, mustard yellow, and burnt orange. The bridal party chose their own outfits in one of the colors. It was fun to have an array of outfits (dresses, skirts, jumpsuits) in different colors.
Q2: Let’s talk wedding decor. How did you decorate your space for the ceremony and the reception? Was any part of the decor DIY? A2: The space was so gorgeous that we didn’t need very much decoration! We had cafe lighting and hanging lights on the brick wall that was our backdrop for the ceremony which made the space feel pretty magical. Katie’s dad built a wooden arch and our florist added some floral pieces to it which was stunning. Our centerpieces for the tables were vases from thrift stores with flowers from Trader Joe’s and one of our friends made our table runners.
Q3: What were the florals like in your wedding? Did you use flowers in any of your design elements like the bridal bouquets, centerpieces or ceremony backdrop? Did they play an important part in the overall style of your wedding? A3: The flowers were one of our favorite parts of the day! We just told our florist what our color palette was and then let her do her magic. She created gorgeous and whimsical pieces for our bouquets, boutonnieres, and ceremony arch. She used dahlias, ranunculus, eucalyptus, roses, among other flowers and greenery, and beautiful hand-dyed silk ribbons in burnt orange and sage green for the bouquets. All of the flowers were absolutely perfect and were really a key part of our decor for the day.
Q4: Did you personalize the day in any way (food trucks, guest entertainment etc.)? What were some of your favorite parts of your wedding? A4: We personalized our wedding by having our families involved. Our parents did readings and Carter’s brothers played guitar and sang during the ceremony. Our favorite part was probably the dancing. We didn’t have a DJ, and Carter spent months crafting the perfect playlist. We asked all of our guests for song recommendations, and it was so much fun to watch people when their song came on. All of our friends love to dance, so it was a blast.
Q5: Let’s talk fashion. How did you both choose your wedding day look? Describe the looks in detail. A5: Katie picked her wedding dress because it was comfortable. She liked that the color and pattern was different from anything she had seen. Her dress was a fit and flare with a tawny lining and ivory lace that had different embroidered motifs. It had sheer tulle on the back with buttons and a long train. She chose navy blue suede sandals with block heels, minimal jewelry, and opted to not wear a veil. Carter wore a navy blue suit with a white shirt, burgundy paisley tie, and brown shoes.
Q6: How did you meet? Tell us about the proposal. A6: We met when we were both attending Luther College in Decorah, IA. Six years later, Carter proposed while we were camping at a state park in the fall. We were sitting around the campfire and then he got down on one knee with a ring. Katie can’t remember a single word of what he said, but she instantly ugly cried. And said yes, obviously!
Q7: What was the most anticipated or special moment of your wedding day? A7: Oh, definitely our first look. We did it in the bridal suite, and it was the sweetest, most tender moment. There were so many tears. Carter didn’t know anything about Katie’s dress so it was a big surprise.
Q8: Do you have any wedding planning or marriage advice that you’d like to share with other couples planning their day? A8: Take it one step at a time. It can seem daunting, but breaking everything down helps make the planning process more manageable. Remember to stop and look at the big picture. It can be easy to get caught up in the details when they won’t matter in the long run. Accept offers of help from friends and family! It makes a big difference. And lastly, don’t be afraid to go to your vendors with any questions!
