Harpers Bazaar Chateau Wedding of Alexandria & Nicholas 

When Alexandria first contacted me, I was in NYC for some work with clients. 

She wrote me an email, mentioning I might be the one who would be able to make her vision alive, as she had been disappointed by some of my peers. 

We agreed on a meeting at Mama Coffee Shop in Tribeca. Alexandria was with her Dad. And I immediately understood I would fall in love with her.

And this is what happened. Alexandria was so detailed oriented, I knew that everything we will be able to create from scratch will be unique and over stunning. 

This Couple Didn’t Believe in Love at First Sight–Until It Happened to Them!

Alexandria and Nicholas had been introduced by mutual friend. I remember perfectly when I asked Alexandria about their story. We were on our way to a stationery meeting in NYC, after the lunch we had at The Roxy Hotel Restaurant, in Tribeca still.

She told me she was not keen on big love at first sight, but when she met Nick, then she knew he was special to her. A little bit older than her (so little, very!) Alexandria thought Nick would not envisage a serious relationship with her. 

This is what a love story is: He was the man of her life. And he felt the same in return. 

When love is that obvious, you can even speak about #couplegoals.

The getting-ready #bridesquad

It was clear from the very beginning: The bride squad would have the entire 1st floor of the Chateau d’Estoublon for their personal use. Champagne, laughs, jewels and complicity were on program. 

Time to Say I do in style!

Now all Ladies are ready. Time then for Alexandria to join the ceremony area, in the olive groves, where the man of her life is waiting for her, surrounded by their beloved guests. 

Celebrating love! 

Our first biggest challenge clearly defined by Alexandria? 

 Creating a wedding ceremony scenery worthy of a natural decor.

Morgane at  Big Day,  a very creative partner, we’ve seen these 20 meters of low bushes with wild along the aisle, open both sides literally rising from the ground. Like everything was already naturally there. 

Then on top of the altar, an incredible roses furnished Arch, 2.50meters high, slightly unstructured to still create the most organic feeling. 

The Ceremony, led by Kasia Wright, was also in music with string quartet from The Botticelli’s. See all vendors list at the end of the post.

 

It's Dinner time! 

With the Star Chef Xavier Mathieu, the couple wanted a Menu Degustation with a very exclusive wine pairing of their favorites French wine.

  1. Mise en bouche : Stewed or roasted Zucchini with seasonal vegetables and edible flowers.
  2. Appetizer: Lobster tail with citrus butter (light) with spinach
  3. Entrées: Filet of lamb on provencal herbs crust, green saulce (juice of savory) + some mini stewed tomatoes and pearl oignons.
  4. Cheese selection
  5. Pre-dessert: Melon in sorbet, lavender sour/vinegar, meringue, fresh peaches, pollen, honey
  6. Dessert: Wedding Cake + 1 macaron olive oil + lemon | 1 macaron lavender + A mini aquavie bottle to serve on the same time.

We worked on a very detailed mise en table, with exclusive products selected at Maison Options, enhanced by all rentals picked at Be-Lounge. 

Work had been then enlighten by talent of our floral partner Big Day Studio Design

Fly me to the moon!  

You know this romantic moment, that belongs to the couple only.. the first dance!

Once the wedding cake had been tiered by the couple, then the Liveband Spyglass started to play “Something” from the Beatles.

Then, the party steered by DJ Benjamin from Discotecnik ended at 6am. We helped the guests to last longer with a yummy crepes stand. Welcome to French Parties!

The Venue, Chateau Diter

Chateau Diter is an unmistakable location that has a very sad story. We’ve been (un)lucky to be the last wedding to be celebrated there as it’s has been ordered to be destroyed for some non-understandable reasons. We wish Monica & Patrick Diter to have enough energy to continue to fight to keep their Palais Florentin alive for the next decades. No matter what, we will be by their side.

Lis & Tris Ceremony

How romantic is this ceremony. Tris’ brother had been chosen to be the celebrant of this gorgeous wedding ceremony. Lis’s dad – an Opera singer – obviously sang with the String quartet we hired for the wedding. The temple had been magnified by a very natural but bold decoration with flowers, in a blush-red-greyish palettes. We decided to entrust the talented team of Mademoiselle Jules, a French Riviera wedding-designer agency.

A touch of paperie

The aesthetics were from the very beginning very clear to Lis & Tris. Belle Epoque style, in reference to their yearly summer holidays in Saint-Tropez. To create this very detailed and gorgeous paperie suite, we worked hand inn hand with Christelle from Crème de Papier, a French designer we know very well since many years.

Bon Appétit!

Before peaking their seat, we managed in our planning to give Jeremy enough time to capture some details of the l’Art de la Table we completely created with Lis & Tris and that Estelle and Mademoiselle Jules’ team produced. We’re still amazed by the delicacy and obvious simplicity (but yet tricky to imagine at first sight). The ambiance was refined, not ostentatious: exactly what Lis & Tris expected. Four lines of tables, with Le Nozze de Figaro as the head table.

When the bridal party has some fun!

No need to write too many words. Happiness captured by Jérémy sais it all! We won’t have enough words to thank Lis & Tris for the generous humans they are. 9 months to plan their dream wedding. Always available, always caring, always responsive and smiling, making decision vastly… Those adjectives could be the ones for the ideal wedding-planner. But it is also true for clients. Lis & Tris : you’re dreamy Xx -M

With praiseworthy wishes, this couple had their garden style wedding in France.

During four days, this couple decided to get married in Southern France, far from their daily life.
As every Jewish wedding, number of guests is high. But in the end, 210 guests total and that was ideal for us to be able to give this three days  religious celebration both an intimate yet festive wedding.

3 days of wedding = 4 wedding receptions + 1 emotional jewish ceremony in the gardens | Number of guests : 210 Ambiance : Festive 14 months of planning. 11 professionals selected and gathered for this destination wedding in in Provence including:

The Chateau where magic happened

During four days, the couple and the their family stayed in the Chateau.

With a total of ten rooms, and a maximum of twenty-one guests to sleep on site, the experience had been 100% enjoyable for each of the guests. This XVIII° Century Chateau is originally a Family property.

Surrounded by 500 acres of vineyards, olive groves and roseraies, the 1.500 sqm of the Chateau were a little bit dazzling but, trust me, the kindness and patience of Frederic the Butler, always guided each guests until they reach their room.

And then the dinner…

On a jewish wedding, the dining moment is absolutely everything. Not necessarily obsessed  with the food, but mostly obsessed with the entertaining, the whole planning of this moment is very specific. Amongst a lot  of speeches and lots of partying moments, we focused on a garden style design on the tables. Still created by Anne Vitchen and Mademoiselle Emma. It was divine. Refined, cosy and intimate (despite the big number of guests ^^) : we. had everything on this wedding.

Embark on this celebrity wedding in Capri. From yacht to lemon trees.

When we’ve been asked to plan celebrity Jacky Heung’s wedding with his no-less famous fiancee Bea Hayden, we knew from the very first second the four days wedding would be as challenging as exciting!

From Saluzi Yacht, to Da Paolino (Lemon Trees Restaurant), il Capri Palace and Il Riccio, we worked with our very beloved team, tutti Caprese!

Capri is the IT-Place for celebrities’ weddings. And we planned one of them

Spending several days to celebrate your wedding abroad: isn’t it dreamy?

Four days in Capri + a few more days to sail around Mediterranean seas. That was the ambitious but yet concrete plan organized for Jacky & Bea’s wedding last September. How do we imagine the best experience? While exploring the gorgeous clichés we have to offer in Capri, but.. obviously: with a twist.

Rehearsal Dinner at Da Paolino Restaurant

Italian cuisine is known to be famous, worldwide. Da Paolino Restaurant, genuinely managed by lovely Michela is one of the greatest table in Capri.

Here’s the menu we served:

STARTER :
– Buffala di mozzarela, Tomatoes and Rucola salad, Parma Ham, Dep fried zuchini flowers.
 
PASTA COURSE:
– Local assortment of pasta: Ravioli Caprese in lemon saulce, Ricioli with zuchini flowers, and Spaghetti  with fresh cherry tomatoes and basil.
 
MAIN COURSE:
– Sea bass fillet, served with asparagus or Eggplants Parmigiana style.
 
CAKES, FRUITS & ICE CREAM:
– Temptation Room” Fiano Pietra Calda Feudi
 
Chianti di Pozano Frescobaldi

Roof top ceremony @ Il Riccio

The ceremony had been over emotional. Bearing in mind this blessed and spiritual celebration would have been broadcasted on the first ChineseTV-Channel, we managed to keep the privacy of the moment with a very involved and respectful team of vendors.

It's Dinner time! 

Recovering from the roof-top ceremony at sunset. That was an absolute necessity and our clients were at the right place, at the right moment. Il Riccio is a one Michelin Star restaurant, and we entirely decided the menu, to surprise the newlyweds and their most beloved ones. 

Then, we designed the dinner in a Spring Dolce Gabbana style, perfectly executed by Anna-Lisa and her team at Flowers in Capri

A wedding in Capri can’t happen if you don’t gift the guests with Carthusia Profumi candles. https://www.carthusia.it
