If you like laid-back weddings with a rustic feel, this is it! This is a gorgeous summer French wedding of Julie and Lionel who created a lazy wedding vibe and kept everything super chilled by holding the reception outside and filling their day with rustic detailing and decor. The sunshine is bursting in from every angle and really fills the day with a summer party feel.
The wedding took place at La Chaponnière, St Rémy sur Durolle, Auvergne, France. The wedding was 100% rustic, organic and rural. A country bouquet and ten small vases installed on all tables with candlesticks. There were 90 guests from various places and everyone enjoyed the relaxed ambience of the wedding.
Triangles were installed outside with garlands of lights to bring a country and guinguette atmosphere. All table sets in jute and lace sewn for the 90 guests so they could leave with a souvenir. The cards are drawn in paper pencil then printed on thick kraft paper and colored / personalized. It took a whole evening to color a tree garland of pennants and lights. Tipis made for children so they could have fun outside. The couple also rented giant wooden games for the kids.
The bride was wearing a flowy wedding dress with a lace bodice with an illusion neckline and cap sleeves and a flowy plain skirt plus a tiny white flower headpiece. She accented her cutout back with a back necklace. The groom was wearing a navy suit and a navy and white printed bow tie. There were bridesmaids who chose their own dresses, so they were mismatching.
