A French Fête
Garden parties, lawn games and a stunning french estate! How could you go wrong? After we featured Mike & Didier's engagement, we knew we were in for a treat with their wedding, but nothing could have prepared us for this! These grooms had a picture-perfect day that we have been drooling over for longer than we care to admit!
Tell us about your big day…
Two words...stressful & magical. After more than a year of preparations, you are still never prepared for the day, but even with all of the unforeseen elements, it was a magical day for us and our guests. We always saw our wedding as a day that was as much for our guests as for us. We planned an entire day of activities with three distinct events...Ceremony/Garden Party, Cocktail & Dinner.
Going into the wedding planning, what did you definitely know?
We always new our wedding would focus largely on or guests.
What surprised you during planning?
Our choice of photographer was our first and easiest. Sophie was a godsend! Flowers were a nightmare but in the end it all worked out thanks to our caterer! Whew!
Is there anything you wish you knew while you were planning your wedding that you know now?
We wish we knew what the weather was going to be, for sure! We had to completely cancel the evening cocktail because of the weather but fortunately, it all worked out!
Any advice for couples planning weddings now?
Our advice would be to delegate. Don't try to do everything yourself! Enjoy your day and don't sweat the small stuff.
What would we have done differently?
We would not have done the official town hall ceremony on the same day as our event. In France you have to meet the mayor and have an official ceremony and we did this on the same day as our "wedding" ceremony and we were pressed for time.
What was your favorite part of your wedding day?
It's too difficult to choose! The entire day was amazing! But if we had to choose, it would have to be our ceremony in front of our friends and family.
