The Allure of a French Chateau Wedding

The Stress-Free Way to Make your Dreams a Reality...

Every time I photograph a wedding at a chateau, it’s obvious why they are such popular choices for intimate elopements and full-scale weddings. The architecture and gardens of French chateaus are effortlessly classic and beautiful. When you add details like the chandeliers, ornate furniture, grand floral arrangements and other accents, you and your guests can truly be transported to a feeling of elegance and sophistication.

The beauty of hosting your wedding at a French chateau lies in the versatility of the venue. Of course, a chateau is the perfect backdrop for a classic fairytale setting. But it absolutely works if you want your wedding to have a vibe with a chic, modern look. Either way, the results can be stunning and unforgettable!   

Planning the Perfect Day

If you’re planning a chateau wedding from abroad, it may seem challenging to create a wedding that is a true reflection of your style as a couple. To find the perfect balance between tradition and individuality, I would strongly suggest finding a local wedding planner or vendor who has a communication style similar to yours as well as connections with other reliable vendors. (Florists, Photographers, Videographers etc.) This way, you can have the peace of mind that all of your vendors align with your vision and have the expertise to curate your day flawlessly. 


It's All About the Details

As an American Photographer living and working in France, I know that preserving the memories of your chateau wedding is such an important part of your day, from capturing the architectural splendor of the chateau, the emotions shared by you and your loved ones, and all of the little details that will make your day extraordinary. Investing in a videographer is also important for couples who want to capture another layer of memories. Beyond digital photo/video services, film photography and super8 video is trending for modern couples who want to capture their wedding day memories in a unique way.   


Planning Your Dream Day Stress Free

My process is easy- I get to know you as a couple through Zoom, FaceTime etc. I enjoy listening to each love story and want to personalize your day for you! Not sure of exactly what you want? That's ok! I also love the challenge of taking inspiration from couples to create something that's unique to them. I can help you with location scouting, coordinating transportation and local vendors, and of course a photographer (me!) to capture your beautiful day on film and video. And I’m available for consultation through the entire process!

Planning your French chateau wedding gives you the perfect opportunity to blend classic elegance and modern glamour, for a celebration that is unique as your love.
