French Chateau Wedding

mistmatched pink bridesmaid dresses @weddingchicks

Our next couple dreamed of a destination wedding where they could celebrate their love with family and friends. They chose the perfect romantic getaway at Chateau La Durantie, in Lanouaille, France. With a pink and white color palette,  lovely details such as mismatched pink bridesmaid dresses and a unique croquembouche cake, the Chateau offered the perfect backdrop for their perfect day.

We have plenty more to see of this wildly romantic French chateau wedding. View the full gallery here. Images photographed by Lmvisual Wedding & Lifestyle.

Friendly help

We are very fortunate to have such artistic and talented friends. They really helped make our vision of our wedding come to life. One of our friends is an artist and she designed our invitations, thank you notes, and the mini-maps. One of my bridesmaids is a make-up artist and another friend a hairdresser. It was amazing to have them get us all ready for the big day.

Destination France

We had always known that we wanted to have a destination wedding. When Joe and I traveled Europe together, we fell in love with France. So when we got engaged, it was easy to decide where we would travel to to have our dream wedding.

Chateau la Durantie

We wanted to have a wedding where in we could spend quality time with all of our closest family and friends. Aside from the fact that it was so beautiful, I was ecstatic when I found Chateau La Durantie as they were able to accommodate most of our guests. Because everyone had flown from either Canada, the US, or the Philippines, it was really important for us to make everyone comfortable.

Dream wedding

Our wedding was such an intimate, elegant, and romantic affair. The chateau was so stunning and we felt so much love around us that it felt, and still feels, like a dream.

a truly inspirational shoot

For my 30th birthday, I put together a fresh styled shoot full of cute and girly details with a few of my closest girl friends and my puppy Casey. I created this shoot as an inspiration for both brides and bridesmaids looking for ideas for their upcoming wedding or bridal shower. Guests were invited with a beautiful invitation suite made by calligrapher, Olive Branch Co. We included more elegant calligraphy in the signage and name tags for a personal touch. My favorite part of the shoot was getting glammed up and taking some fun shots on the urban streets of Toronto with the balloon adorned with coral and gold tassels.

Whimsical pink table setting

The table setting was set with coral taffeta, and embellished with both floral and tall candlesticks, while the individual place settings had mismatched teacups, delicate gold rimmed chargers and a laid-back cotton napkin. The floral straws and vintage-inspired flutes from Weddingstar added a nice touch of whimsy. Finally, each guest was gifted with a tin of my favorite tea from Sloane Tea.

always room for dessert

There is always room for dessert when it comes to girls, so I did not hold back on the sweets. To frame the sweets table, we created a fun floral backdrop framed in an antique chalk frame. The cake and sweets were set atop a white vanity, complimented by antique plates, mirror trays and cake stands. I created a gold and pink cotton candy tree as a show-stopping piece for the shoot, and the ombre cotton candy bags were a hit with everyone. We also enjoyed some sweet grapefruit popsicles with gold flakes from Sweet Sammies. They were delish!
