This elegant Virginia outdoor wedding took place at the childhood home of the bride for their intimate family-orientated wedding. The bride and the groom lived in Paris when they got engaged on the banks of the Seine last year, so the bride wanted to incorporate little details of her husband’s Parisian roots into their relaxed Southern affair. This elegant Virginia outdoor wedding speaks of romance and culture and has a sweet hometown sincerity about it, which we just love. Be sure to view the rest of the images in our real weddings gallery.

The bride describes the night below:

“Guests arrived to a glass of ‘bienvenue bubbly’ served in vintage French champagne coupes, and following the ceremony moved into the garden for hors d’oeuvres and bluegrass music. Dinner was delicious southern fare prepared by Chef Michael Wood, and complemented by French wines. White hydrangeas and garden roses adorned the long table, and each charger was topped off with a small chocolate carré by Debauve & Gallais, famous Paris chocolatiers. After dinner, the champagne flowed down to the barn, where bales of hay set the stage for our Southern jazz band, and guests indulged in lemon pound cake and macaroons. My Dad and I danced to the theme from Casablanca. As a parting gift, guests received bags of Wedding Impérial tea by our favorite Paris tea house.”

It’s from the Spring/Summer 2012 collection. Can still find them in the store in Paris, so perhaps could call? Maybe not featuring all the options via internet. Bon courage!
