If all the rest in this wedding doesn’t excite you, I promise that the wedding dress will! The wedding took place during a floral festival in the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region of France, it was filled with blooms, and the bridal dress reflected that.
The groom’s parents own the fort where the wedding took place. The couple decorated the space themselves, and the whole village helped with that! Neighbors generously grew flowers over the summer and let the bride take the flowers, so they decorated the rustic chateau with giant daisies and dahlias. Katy + Saeed’s mothers hung dried flowers from the ancient beams in the reception room. Saeed’s dad crafted 18 living-edge oak tables and benches especially for the occasion.
The bride wanted a floral dress that would be super unique and eye-catching and with a detachable tulle outer layer so it could transition from day to night. The decor of the dress was inspired by vintage Hawaiian shirts, and took 2 months to make. The bride and her mom made all the embroidery themselves making literally hundreds of meters of colored ribbons. The groom was wearing a tan suit with a brown turtleneck, his look was also very memorable.
The day before the wedding, Katy baked cakes with the help of her mother in their neighbor’s oven. They used the tastiest vegan recipes, including: a 4-layer coconut and lime sandwich cake with pineapple flowers, and pecan brownies with dark salted chocolate ganache – plus a selection of their favorite traditional Arabic Baklava.
