loire wedding valley

A Wedding in the Loire Valley

okay, if you are a regular reader you will know my feelings re: the wedding industry and that my overall hope is that people would have honest, real weddings without the unnecessary hoopla.

…but, i had to show you this. because it’s so ridiculously fantastical i almost cannot believe it’s real. this couple had a costume themed wedding in a french chateau in the loire valley. if you can afford to have your wedding in a chateau you’re already in another league, but this is simply nuts. the bride’s dress was designed by the same costume designer who created michelle pfeiffer’s costumers in dangerous liasons. they even had fireworks on the balcony! marie antoinette, eat your heart out, eh?

the photography is the work of Shawn Connell of the Christian Oth Studio - the quality of which is not unlike something you might expect to see on the pages of Vogue.
