FRENCH WEEK: Board No. 2, Woodsy Wedding

Editor’s Note: As J&I are busy unpacking things here in Charlottesville, Va., I thought I’d re-share one of my favorite weeks on CB – French Week! 😉

I absolutely adore the idea of finding a secluded French chateau surrounded by lush greenery to frame an intimate summer wedding. With such a dramatic + marvelous backdrop, I think it’s important to keep the details streamlined and simple … yet still with a hint of whimsy!

Feel: Modern-day ballet meets enchanted childhood fairytale
Locale: A wondrous 16th century French chateau {+ it’s for sale!}, complete with meadows, springs, woods and its very own chapel!
Palette: Verdant greens and milky whites with a whisper of lavender
