Ok, I’m officially on a French wedding kick. After last week’s wedding and now with this…my my, just take me to France. Eleonore is a fashion blogger from Paris who celebrated her marriage in her grandparent’s forest. The entire event- including all those precious hand made details- was put together by the friends and family of this adorable couple. There is such a personal sweetness to every detail of this celebration–don’t you love it?

We’ve been working in the forest for 9 month to make it nice, we bought tents and built a candyfloss shed and the dancefloor (with a star in the middle), I went every weeks to emmaüs (french charity store) to buy 65 chairs for the dinner and nice vintage dishes, people lent us the tables and my grand mother gave me white sheets and flowers to decorate it. The dress code for the guests was : dots and stripes and many of them followed it. Our guests slept in tents with us after dancing around a camp fire and it’s been a wonderful day and night. I imagined everything with the caterer, the designer for my dress and the taylor for my husband’s suit. We did all the decoration by ourselves and took inspiration on once wed and other decoration blogs. Here is also our wedding website and here our invitations made by one of our witnesses.
