I just love delivering a great big dose of pretty on a Friday! Dreamt up by Viktoriya of The Hanging Gardens and brought to life by a truly talented team of creatives, this French château wedding inspiration is perfect bliss for the bride with a flair for romantics! With rich oranges, deepest blues, gilded detail, and painterly emotion, we find the elegant graces of a classic European aesthetic made manifest!
A word from photographer, Angela Elise:
“Viktoriya of The Hanging Gardens put together this refreshing take on a Parisian wedding. It may be very unrealistic for brides to travel to another country for their wedding day. This carefully-curated inspiration was meant to inspire brides that a Parisian countryside feel can be created right here on the east coast of the United States.
With Lynn Acres as our backdrop in all of its French chateauesque architecture and the French custom calligraphy pieces by Simple Flourish, it created a distinct atmosphere of the French countryside. From the spiral staircase to the delicate beading of the wedding gown this style was a sentiment to true and authentic European dreams. The French phrase “La vie ne vaut d’être vécue sans amour” meaning “life is not worth living without love” was just a way to describe the feeling when beauty meets destiny. All of the florals by The Hanging Gardens were so full of detail and color yet simple and organic. The tablescape, set for a classic gathering was brought to life with blush pinks and pops of scarlet and golden yellow. Keeping the bride’s bouquet in light colors and tones of green really followed the feel of the details of the gown and paired very well with the groom’s blue suit.
Starting the day inside the beautiful bridal suite and ending in the afternoon at the front of the property was a seamless transition for any bride looking for an all-day venue. Throughout the day, a gentle current of air swept through the grounds at Lynn Acres. An inspiration of Parisian simplicity and sophistication is absolutely what this amazing estate has to offer.”
