Romantic Wedding at Greystone Mansion: Chriselle + Allen

chriselle wedding

I’ve had so much fun working with Chriselle the past few months on our Down the Aisle with Chriselle series and today I’m so excited to finally share her gorgeous wedding with you! If you’ve been following the series on GWS or The Chriselle Factor, I’m sure you’re dying to see the lovely wedding photos. I think you’ll agree that her wedding was undoubtedly designed to reflect the epitome of Chriselle style – lots of blushes, peaches, lace + gold accents. :)

For their big day, Chriselle + Allen really wanted to make sure they just enjoyed all the little moments. I love how they started the day with a few words together, then ended their day with a romantic car ride in a 1962 Rolls Royce!  I don’t think either of them will forget the special moments shared on their wedding day :)

Big thanks to Jana Williams for the photos, Details Details for the planning + design and to Julie with Elysium Weddings for the gorgeous video at the end. But most importantly, a big congrats to Chriselle + Allen!

From Chriselle, “On your wedding day remember to set some alone time aside for just you and your husband. It’s those sacred moments spent alone, together, that will last you for a lifetime!”

Enjoy the process! It's normal to argue & be frustrated with one another during the planning process, but remember in the end it will all be worth it!! Now that our wedding is over I wish that I could relive every moment!!

Romantic Paris Elopement: Amanda + Chase

paris elopement

Always mesmerized by the elegance, charm, and seduction of France, Amanda + Chase decided it was the perfect place to get married – with their ceremony taking place at the stunning Palace De Versailles. It was a dream come true for the couple to be able to have their ceremony in the gorgeous Versailles Gardens. Once they arrived at the gardens, they knew that when they saw the right spot to recite their vows that they’d both just know. Turns out that spot was on Lake Versailles in a rowboat. How romantic!! Thanks so much to Kim Miller Photographs for the gorgeous photos and congrats to Amanda + Chase!

I loved Sofia Coppola’s film “Marie Antoinette” especially the characters and era. I was completely fascinated by the colors, textures, costume design, décor, and overall brilliance in the depiction in the film. It was the true inspiration for my dress (by Claire LaFaye) and our wedding location.

It’s so hard to say my favorite moment of the day. The experience in and of it self was remarkable. Traveling by train and metro in our wedding garb throughout the day was so much fun. But, my favorite moments were actually that people from all different countries, all speaking different languages, and of all ages noticed that we were in our wedding garb and had gotten married and were so affectionate and so jubilant at the thought of us becoming husband and wife. We were continually joyously congratulated by men, women, and families from all over the world throughout the entire day. Those moments were so beautiful and precious.

Both my husband and I would recommend hands down that you do a destination wedding. It is so worth it! It’s truly what getting married is about. It’s all about each other. It’s your union and your start together as a couple. Having a destination wedding is obviously romantic but also was such an intimate thing for both you and your new spouse to share. Spending a wedding budget on a three week Wedding-Moon as opposed to just one day is so worth it. The attendees on our wedding day were our photographers.

Prior to leaving we had a huge bride and groom weekend with family and friends and to follow Bachelor and Bachelorette parties and now that were back we’ve hosting two houseboat weekends for all our college friends and out of town friends. For us it was the best of both worlds being able to have so much quality time with friends and family instead of only 4 hours at a reception. Seriously – try and give it some thought. It’s worth the shot.
