Excuse me while I leave reality behind and escape to the beauty that is this charmingly chic chateau shoot. Captured by Gert Huygaerts, with assistance from Palermo Photo, these pics are what my day dreams are made of, from the gorgeous florals by Laetitia Fleurs d’Atelier to the La Tavolalinens, all orchestrated perfectly by The Romanticist Studios. Simply put, it's paradise in Provence. How can you resist!? From Gert Huygaerts... Escape to beautiful Provence with a vow renewal planned by The Romanticist Studios and captured by fine art photographer Gert Huygaerts. From The Romanticist Studios... When the couple is set on a destination wedding it is always important to combine both ‘worlds’ for an authentic vision. To create this vision, we carefully selected the location and a ‘home’ and ‘local’ teams that could bring together American trends and the natural beauty and warmth of Provence.The logistics of any event abroad can be overwhelming for couples and planners alike so we partnered with Coco from Travellur to scout a unique venue (Chateau des Alpilles) and manage the ins and outs of our trip.To compose the modern details, I chose a trendy color palette of ‘greenery’ and almond that enhanced the natural elements at the Chateau and the bride’s look. The romantic minimal dress by Alexandra Grecco was paired with custom jewelry crafted by Sara Golden specially for our bride.Using foraged grasses and roses, Laetitia Fleurs d’Atelier created a bouquet that was both organic and feminine for the occasion. Silk and Willow watercolor ribbon infused the bridal look with the green and almond shades in a sophisticated way.The head table was designed to stand out at the location. We chose pillar candles and long café au lait tapers from Creative Candles along with a dramatic fern velvet tablecloth from La Tavola Linen for a modern touch of color. The place settings were adorned with local grasses and handwritten name cards from Tara Spencer. The florals were wild and asymmetrical in shades of almond, green grass and soft rose.All other tables were kept simple with the Chateau’s own garden tables and simple flower arrangements.Tara Spencer designed a textural and bold invitation suite to give guests a little glimpse of all the moments to come in Provence. Luxury handmade paper from her company Idyll added subtle almond color to the suite.
