Happy hump day lovely FWS readers, and allow us to spoil you further as we continue this week with some more Real Wedding fabulousness.
Today we’re escaping to the stunning Loire Valley for a romantic wedding at Château de la Beuvrière – captured beautifully by FWS Vendor Story of Your Day.
Their chosen venue was Château de la Beuvrière – a fairytale 14th century white stone chateau in Angers, 90 minutes south-west of Paris.
In the heart of the Loire Valley, Château de la Beuvrière – also known as Château Allure du Lac – has its own 22-acre lake with an island and has been lovingly restored by its British owner.
Cassie explains their venue choice: “We are both from Colorado. We grew up in a small town called Elizabeth and have known each other since middle school. I found the chateau in France about a year ago and thought it looked magical.”
“We knew we would do a destination wedding… we have a very close group of family and friends that have supported us at varying times over the last 20-plus years and we wanted it to be about them as much as it was about us. We are pretty private too; a big event is not really ‘us’.”
Indeed, the wedding was a wonderful collaboration between the couple and their friends and family.
On the morning of their wedding, Cassie began writing her vows to Chad while her family and friends worked hard on the preparations in the marquee and by the lake where the ceremony was to be held. Cassie’s close friend Sarah Roberson was their official photographer, while florist Estelle Preston created stunning floral displays.
The couple invited Story Of Your Day to film the intimate affair after visiting the Switzerland-based destination wedding videographer’s website and watching the film trailers.
“I really felt like our wedding day was more than just the event, it was a celebration of the life we have lived together. The people, the memories, the love and support and I knew Emma at Story Of Your Day would be able to recreate that,” says Cassie.
“Our wedding trailer film is amazing and beautiful and perfect. We are so happy Emma captured not only the day but our relationship.”
Congratulations to Cassie and Chad from us all at French Wedding Style!
