Dreamy Chateau Wedding in France
Christina stepped out in a work of art designed by Mark Zunino and paired with Christian Louboutin heels for one awe-inspiring and romantic bridal style. Sam, looking sharp in a classic black tuxedo, makes us all wish for a man to gaze upon us as he did his bride this day. As harpist, Sonate en duo, filled the air with music guests enjoyed champagne and canapés while the couple snuck away for photos by the historic arch designed by Leonardo da Vinci. The reception took place in the François Ier hall, with a mix of long and round tables. Their color palette of soft pastels was given a chic and modern twist with touches of black and silver. Tablescapes showcased low floral arrangements by Sol Y Flor intermixed with tall silver candelabras. Of course, touches like the floral garland falling over the black lacquer chairs with signs reading “Madame” and “Monsieur” remind us of the sweet traces of French styling. A savory three-course gourmet French meal was served for guests, we can only imagine the incredible aroma and feast. Dancing was kicked off with a champagne tower and a traditional French “croquembouche” as their wedding cake. C’est beau, n’est-ce pas!?
