It’s raining romance in today’s chateau wedding inspiration with the sweetest muse of all – a quote about love, sweet, love. You’d be hard pressed to find a more beautiful European-inspired wedding venue in Sonoma, and we’re simply soaking it all in. The golden glow of the fading sun, the rich velveteen linens, the sweet pear details and a dress that was made for making an impact.
With natural light fine art photographer Elizabeth Warrick behind the lens, we knew we were in for a treat. And these lovely images just keep proving our hunch right!
Designed by Alluring Events, these garden wedding scenes are wrought with intention. And it’s all glorious!
From the stylist, Alluring Events: “In a hundred lifetimes, in a hundred worlds, I would still choose you.” Nothing is more romantic than the idea of spending a hundred lifetimes together, running through gardens and stealing kisses during sunset – it is like something straight out of a novel.
Batter Up Cakery designed this stunning 3-tier gem, complete with a ripped edge frosting effect that points towards the heavens!
Timeless, authentic, natural, romantic, delicate and intentional are words we would use to describe our vision for this shoot. Every detail was thought through, from the placement of every blackberry, to the perfect coloring of the pears and soft wisps of florals in the bride’s hair.
Chateau St. Jean was the dreamiest location. Around every corner was another beautiful space to snap photos (we would have spent the entire evening there if the sun hadn’t gone down).
Speaking of dreamy… can we take a moment to ogle over the stunning Hayley Paige gown? Her designs never disappoint and the dress was so fitting for the location and feel of the day.
Aren’t this farm table and wooden slotted chairs from Blossom Farm Vintage Rentals just perfect?!
Floral designer April Baytan crafted a naturally flowing autumnal arrangement with a few of our favorites peeking out!
And the bride’s sultry eyes from Victoria Toda add the perfect pinch of mystery to this magnetic scene.
Soft and plush, these velveteen linens from La Tavola have our names on them.
And wow, the light + airy calligraphy from Shelby Libbrecht has our heads spinning with delight.
If you’re loving the pear details in this wedding inspiration, check out the cake from this recent spring garden feature we shared!
Her open-back blush tinted gown with a botanical lace overlay was scooped up at La Soie Bridal, and ummm, we’re making an appointment immediately for a dressup sesh. Either that or we’ll vicariously live through you guys!
We had an amazing team that brought our vision to reality. It is so refreshing to work with vendors who notice and care about every detail. It elevates the entire event. We truly believe that having the right vendors play a huge role in your wedding and can take it from ordinary to extraordinary.
