Provence, Southern France is a Picturesque Destination for an Intimate Wedding

Situated at the picturesque Clos St Esteve in the South of France, this enchanting Provencal hideaway was the ideal environment for a late Fall editorial. This 17-acre property dates back to the 18th century, with its land harvested for olives in the early Fall. While the summer months produce an abundance of lavender blooms no matter the time of year, this estate never fails to charm its guest. The owners have fully restored the grounds amongst natural lavender and rose gardens and cypress trees.

Destination wedding photographer, Joseph Rogero, produced this fashion-forward shoot that embodies the soulfulness of Provence by highlighting a woman’s femininity, playfulness, and wonder. The gardens were the perfect backdrop in providing the elegance and tone he envisioned Provence to have. Joseph captured three separate looks among the property’s vibrant landscape.

Issia wore a jumpsuit by Lien and two wedding dresses designed by Eisen Stein Bridal. These looks magnified the robust beauty of France while blending organically into the beauty and wonder of a bride.

With the contributions of a global creative team, this dynamic shoot was designed to inspire brides who may be planning a Parisian style celebration.  Clos St Esteve is the perfect location for a couple that envisions an intimate destination wedding in Provence. The surrounding areas host themselves to a remarkable landscape of wine, olives, and small farms that pull together everything Le Thor represents.

Once Wed was launched in March 2008 to meet a need in the marketplace for an online listing service for second-hand wedding dresses.
