This intimate wedding in the heart of Provence has our hearts a flutter. What a romantic soirée this destination wedding was in a gorgeous French chateau filled with blush roses. Oh and did we mention the bride’s TWO wedding dresses and gorgeous mantilla veil? It’s as if this wedding was tucked away in our favorite storybook and we have fallen in love with every photo by Rory Wylie Weddings.
From the photographer, Rory Wylie Weddings: After meeting in Cambridge, England, and now living in San Francisco for work, Dongting & Rebecca chose to have a destination wedding at the beautiful Chateau de Tourreau in Provence.
Inspired by the Rebecca’s favorite colors and flowers, the couple planned an intimate spring wedding day full of blossoms, with a hint of vintage incorporated in the bride’s long sleeve ball gown and mantilla veil.
Lovers of classical music, Dongting & Rebecca asked the Florence Bethune of Avignon Conservatory to play excerpts from their favorite pieces throughout the day. While spring brought some rain showers and clouds intermittently through out the day, the weather cleared in the evening and the couple was blessed with a beautiful rainbow across the sky greeting guests as they sat down to dinner outside.
When someone says “destination wedding” and then tacks on “French chateau”, there’s really no need to say more…we’re IN! If you’re thinking you want a more tropical destination wedding, check out our top 5 tips for getting married in the Caribbean!
