The Ultimate French Destination Wedding

When it comes to planning the ultimate French destination wedding, I think Nicole and Tarik take the cake! Their guests were treated to a sumptuous tour of France, starting with a champagne river cruise along the Seine and ending at a stunning chateau in the French countryside! The Chicago-based bride and groom worked closely with their planners, The Event House, to pull off their incredible wedding day with luxe French style! The incredible photos from Bonphotage captured the stunning grounds of Chateau Bouthonvilliers with dreamy blush accents from the bride’s pink wedding dress and gorgeous flowers from Floresie!

Nicole fully embraced the glamour and romance of the French countryside with her blush pink Lazaro wedding dress – the mermaid silhouette and miles of ruffled skirt added a touch of whimsy to the beaded lace bodice. Her attendants looked equally chic in blush and neutral dresses to complement their color palette. Flower artist Floresie carried the pink theme into Nicole’s statement bouquet, with blushing bride and King protea to add a little drama to the chateau setting!

How gorgeous is her emerald engagement ring? Pops of rich green, soft flowers, and the romance of her bridal attire made sure that every glamorous detail fit in the garden surroundings of the chateau grounds.

Tarik made sure that his beautiful bride wasn’t the only one with couture style on their wedding day, with a bespoke suit from Daniel George Custom Suits in Chicago!

The stunning couple put a personal twist on a church ceremony by exchanging vows on the steps of the Chateau Bouthonvilliers chapel. The 19th century chapel made for a beautiful setting with a little help from blush pink and white flower garlands twining up the steps to create the perfect ceremony backdrop.

Their outdoor reception was the definition of campagne style, with long farm tables set under a tent from  Be Lounge. Maison Options provided the rustic bistro chairs and dreamy details to make their reception feel welcoming! Hand lettered wooden signs and flower runners of blush blooms ensured their reception was the epitome of rustic chic!
