A Word From Cindy:
The winter inspiration for this intimate wedding in France was born when my clients asked me, "How can we have a romantic and amazing wedding when it is impossible to have a big reception?" Intimate weddings are such a beautiful way to enjoy such a romantic moment with our close ones. With that in mind, I imagined a gorgeous « Rose De Thé » table design. A symbolic color of love that can be shown at each season and there are so many ways to play with its shades.
The wedding dress resembles harmony with its soft pink pale color, a wonderful mix of the trendy design and the old fashion with this puff sleeves. My « Rose De Thé » inspiration features both authenticity and modern spirit: warm colors, intentional lighting, dark foliage, and contrasting white and gold crockery inviting you to travel within in the French heritage.
The wooden walls of Château de Montgobert are telling us a story of the last century like a modern fairy tale in a historic venue surrounded by all these memories of ancient times. As the light is dusty and mysterious in this period of the year, we played with the « Claro Oscuro » of the Château atmosphere.
Candles on the table warm up the ambiance and the floral arrangements were created with an astonishing palette of colors. Purple and yellow dance on the foliages. Gold touches on the dishes and candlesticks are highlighting the table settings. Something different, something radiant to celebrate your love.
The beautiful Chateau de Montgobert is situated within one hour from Paris, not far from the picturesque region of Champagne. This historical monument was built in the 18th century and first belonged to Pauline Bonaparte. Chateau de Montgobert is surrounded by magnificent gardens, with a beautiful alley à la française leading towards the chateau in the middle of the French bushes, ancient statues, and fragrant roses. It dominates the small typical village and the forest massifs. The indoor space is warm and welcoming with its large French windows, wooden walls, and a romantic fireplace. Such a charming venue to celebrate your wedding!
Fairy Tale Paper Goods
Mathilda Lundin created this gorgeous stationery with a modern fairy tale heritage feeling. Designed with flowing calligraphy created with a traditional nib, an abundance of romantic florals, and an illustration of the magical wedding venue. Using notes of burgundy, the lightest of blush, and details of glistening gold and bronze tassels to add a bit of elegant drama. The suite was printed on handmade paper with deckled edges for a touch of old-world romance.
Dream Wedding Dress
The bride wears an off-the-shoulder Dream ad Dress which is sophisticated mixed with a romantic nature. When we saw the dress we thought: this is it – such a tender, soft and elegant creation. The underwear corset base keeps its shape well and draws beautiful feminine lines. We fell in love with this airy and playful design, it reveals your every movement graciously and creates a romantic mysterious aura.
From Onorina Jomir, hair & make up artist: For this look, I specifically chose to style the hair in a soft, romantic updo, because her dress is designed to show off her shoulders. I also made sure to leave some soft hairpieces framing her face, to harmonize with her romantic dress and airy puffy sleeves."
The florals were a mix of blush, pink, and gold roses, and she wore a gold hair accessory, so I used warm tones in her eye makeup and a nude blush lip color, to complement her wedding day color palette. When all the pieces align, your wedding look will feel like YOU and you'll feel your best in your own skin. Plus, your photographs and videos will have an elevated, classic feel and you'll create timeless memories of your special day! My greatest advice to every bride out there is: Take the time to research and curate your look details, and find the best artist in your area that you can trust with your vision - you'll be glad you did!View All Images
