Almost a year ago, we traveled to Normandy to photograph Ven and Adrian’s French Chateau wedding. What can we say other than that is was a blast?!? The scenic countryside of France was like a dream, and so was our bride and groom. A marvelous weekend altogether.
From the bride:
A destination wedding was the best option for us as we had family and friends traveling from all over the globe. We chose the French countryside for the beautiful scenery, outdoor atmosphere, and access to exceptional food. Chateau de Bouelles was a perfect fit for us because we were indeed able to enjoy the wedding weekend with our family and friends. The exquisite gardens won us over, as early on, we quickly envisioned incredible outdoor festivities. The setting and location of the chateau allowed our guests time to explore the region in between wedding events. We had a very dependable planner that understood our vision. Our wedding was absolutely stress-free and enjoyable in every way imaginable.
I had tried on many beautiful dresses, several which felt alright but none that were quite spot on. It needed to be classic but not stuffy. I wanted it to fuss-free and a dress I could move around in and not need help while walking. After months searching and not finding quite the dress, my mother offered to make my dress. It took lots of phone calls and several flights, but it was a beautiful way to include her in both the plans and on the wedding day.
