Intimate French Riviera Wedding

Michael and Lori married at the beautiful La Forge d’ Hauterives in the French Riviera. Family members surrounded them with love and support in the quaint cobblestone courtyard where they took their vows. The calm breeze urged the couple through the gates of the mansion and out into the village of La Colle sur Loup where the natural beauty effortlessly became the backdrop for portraits. Locals walking and dining nearby in outdoor cafés cheered as the bride and groom walked by hand in hand. When the sun went down the couple arrived back at the mansion garden where a charming and elegant reception dinner was awaiting them. Owner of the mansion, Anne d’Hauterives, used antique family china and silverware for the place settings with handwritten name cards and menus. Fresh flowers and candles garnished and illuminated the table with a perfect ambience as the newlyweds and family gathered talking, laughing, and dining for hours under the starry sky.
