Romance in the Parisian Countryside

I’m totally loving the florals and tablescape for the fantastic wedding reception of New York interior decorator and stylist Kelly d’Halluin, née Kapica, and art-loving grande famille scion Nicolas d’Halluin. This wedding was held in the countryside near Paris with cocktails in the gardens, candlelit dinner on the terrace – at a single long table set for 300 guests! – and dancing in the grand salon. I love this color combination and the bouquet – it is so stunning. The inspiration for the bouquet came from the curiosity cabinets in the chatêau. Paris-based floral designer, Stephanie Chapelle, mixed butterflies from Deyrolle, grouse feathers, orchids, ferns, mind and peonies tied with antique ribbons. One of my other favorite details are the glass cloches – aren’t the little nests and porcelain birds perfect? The place cards were done by calligrapher, Bernard Maisner.

What an amazing table! “Fuzzy baby almonds, pepper berries, and porcelain doves accompany birch-bark vessels and white and green florals down the length of the reception dining table.” Kelly (the bride) really brought her vision to life with her amazing styling.
