Our lovely Chicago based couple gathered around 40 guests to join them just outside of Paris at Château de Champlâtreux, an 18th century built castle, to celebrate in their intimate wedding festivities! The couple’s romantic sunrise photoshoot in The City of Light set the tone for a wedding day that as full of fashion, fine art, food and fun.

The morning ended with our bride & groom enjoying café lattes and croissants at an almost empty Parisian terrace. They took this quiet moment to reflect ahead of the following day’s wedding adventure!

Wedding details

Our bride began her morning beauty preparations in “le Salon Blue” at Château de Champlâtreux. As the château is filled with such history and fine art splendour, she wanted to surround herself in its natural beauty for as long as she could!

As our bride prepared for the day, her groom did the same in his private quarters!

Before their guests arrived, Laurel & Chris reunited in the front of the château for their first look.

Our original idea was to have the ceremony in the garden in front of the magnificent fountain. However, the rain had other plans. Instead, the ceremony was held indoors in the marble floored vestibule. This made for a cozy, intimate and even more romantic atmosphere.

Once the I do’s were exchanged, it was time to clink glasses! The bride and groom kicked off the cocktail hour with their champagne fountain! As the rain stopped just after the ceremony, signature cocktails and passed canapés were in the back garden as a jazz trio played in the background.

Cocktail Hour

As the sun began to set, guests were invited to find their place for dinner. Guests gathered in “Le Salon du Billard” to enjoy a 3-course dinner where each course had it’s own wine pairing.

A note from the Bride:

“Jennifer is truly a one-of-a-kind planner, and it would be an understatement to say she was critical in helping us plan and execute our wedding vision. We live in the states, and she was more than accommodating to hop on a video or phone call whenever we needed anything and was always two steps ahead in planning whatever needed to be done. She even took the time to do a video chat with my mom which helped her feel engaged during planning process even from afar. Where Jennifer really shines though is her ability to bring your wedding vision to life. Her detail-oriented eye scouted the perfect details for our day – from linens, to glassware, to the design of the cake, flowers and even the playlist. She also helped us procure our favorite champagne to be used for the toasts which was especially memorable for us and our guests. The tablescape she created and the mood she crafted for our wedding made us feel like we were at an intimate dinner party straight out of “Midnight in Paris” – it was even more magical than we imagined. Our planning experience with her was seamless and stress-free and we literally could not have planned our dream destination wedding without her. Thank you, Jennifer, for making our special day so memorable!”
