Favorites From My Wedding Files: French Country Favorite

A French Country Wedding
Here’s what one of my favorite fairy tale weddings was made of:


A French chateau in an idyllic countryside…

A perfect warm and sunny summer day,

Air filled with heavenly flower perfumes 

And sounds of laughter, love and music.

P7240102 - Version 2A beautiful Princess and her handsome Prince,

Embroidered silk and satin, ruffles, ribbons, and wispy floating gowns.

P7240101 - Version 3 P7240089Lovely ladies-in-waiting

And stalwart groomsmen standing by,

P5290796A solemn ceremony under canopy of tall oak trees,





As rosy petals floated on the breeze….





Softest flowers blooming everywhere

All pink and blush and apricot and peach ~

P7240119            Snapdragons, spicy-scented stock,

            Huge hydrangeas, ruffled peonies

            And tulips, freesia, phlox,

            Palest pink yarrow and Canterbury bells and many more…

Pink candles ribbon-hung from branches of the trees ~


Every detail thoughtfully designed…

Encircled by a wreath of billowing hydrangea blooms.

A gift well-wrapped in Love.


And for this blissful bride and groom that day,

  1. If this isn’t reason for a little book of how a wedding should look and your writing style which is so beautiful must be shared…


  2. I can picture it Sydne!! I was in and out of Citrus Heights on a schedule, but am also driving up to Ashland this Thursday – are you around? If I get off on time, I should be able to at least stop and say hi and deliver the pill cases for you and Hillary. Hope that visit with Daphne was the best!!

    Every time I see a flower post I smile from ear to ear!!

    Love, Claire



  3. Breathtaking! The bouquets are beyond beautiful and the bridal party are from a Bridal magazine layout. Your passion for glorious displays of flowers is so evident.
