Famous for its lavender fields and olive groves, Provence has become the ultimate close-knitted wedding destination. Jacqueline and Casimir opted for an affectionate wedding to go with the very beautiful venue, and how romantic it turned out to be. The ceremony was held in an open-air olive grove with only natural green and blue as backdrop. The bride did a personal touch by designing the wedding program with a little French dictionary for their guests to share some tête-à-tête. The seated dinner was also done outdoor with place cards also personally designed by the bride. It was a beautiful and lovely night. Take a look at the pictures all packed nicely in our gallery over here.
Being an artist and a designer myself, I knew I would inevitably end up planning the wedding and creating all the paper goods and stationary. I was able to do this with the help of my friend (and generally awesome human) Joy Proctor. This was something I really enjoyed because from the save the dates to the invitations or the welcome books, I felt I had the ability to do small things that really represented us as a couple. We love adventure, we've traveled across the world together and we come from 2 very distinct cultures. Instead of a traditional guest book, I created postcards with drawings of women that represented the places in the world we traveled together. Our guests were able to choose a postcard they liked, or had something to do with how they met us. When we found the Auberge La Feniere, we knew it was exactly what we had been looking for. A location that felt authentic, incredibly beautiful without feeling stuffy, surrounded by nature, Michelin star chef and run by a group of people who, at the end of the day, felt more like family than vendors. A lot of our wedding was DIY and we were so grateful for all the family and friends that really helped make this happen.
