Oooooh boy! For all you brides dreaming of a fairytale wedding fit for a king and queen, wait till you see this! Anna and Levi had an incredibly lavish three-day wedding celebration with friends and family at Chateau Challain- a stunning castle venue where fairytales really do come true.
Their luxurious Midsummer Night’s Dream reception party is what dreams are made of and features some of our favorite things, including a RL unicorn, over-the-top florals, and a hot air balloon (say whaaaaaat!) It just keeps getting better and better! See it all below, and don’t miss the full gallery on this one, because there’s so much more to see captured by Janis Ratnieks.
From Chateau Challain Events: Hi Fairytale Fans, we have a very special treat for you guys! (Like seriously, brace yourselves for some hardcore Fairytale action). I wouldn’t say we only do Fairytale Weddings here at Chateau Challain, far from it. Not every Destination Wedding we perform has wings, or costumes. We are indeed proud to host a wonderful variety of romantic inmate elopements, heart warming Destination Family Weddings, and Luxurious Parties. But sometimes a very special couple want to unleash their inner Oberon and Titania. And boy! are we there for couples such as these… after all our motto isn’t #WeDoUnicorns for nothing! So, ladies and gentlemen, enter the very magical Anna and Levi…and of course never forgetting Geronimo! And a sneak peak at their enchanting wedding, a true Midsummers Night’s Dream wedding.
Midsummers Night’s Dream theme
For the Big Day we had something very special lined up for this very special couple. The theme of the Wedding was a Midsummers Night’s Dream. The traditional wedding ceremony took place in the local church, where the couple exchanged their scared vows, and tears were shed. On their return to the Chateau, the party was greeted with a champagne cocktail hour, and thrilled with hot air balloon rides at the back of the Chateau, giving spectacular views of the property.
Magical Secret Garden receptionThe reception dinner was held in our Secret Garden next to the Memorial Tower. Beautifully adorned with flowers by David Kimmel’s fantastic team, which were wonderfully complemented by dream-like decor designed by our in-house wedding planner Cynthia Nicholson. The guests were completely wowed as they were transported into another ethereal world, full of fairy folk and unicorns. Yet more tears were shed as the King and Queen took their first dance together beneath a cascade of stars.The enchanting evening was finished off with a spectacular firework display, before the happy guests danced the night away.
They could stay forever
From the bride: We looked at many other places, but this chateau seemed right for us. Chateau Challain is a magical place. Cynthia was amazing, she helped us with everything. We couldn’t even start to think of our favorite part, everything was beautiful, everything was my favorite. The schedule was perfect, we had lots of activities, we never felt bored at any point. My friends had high expectations, but this blew their minds. I’m so sad to go home, I could stay forever…
