michelle & alexandre






     



















Michelle & Alexandre's wedding was like a fairy tale! It all took place at a beautiful chateau about twenty minutes outside of Aix. I think it was built in the late 1800's {amazing!}. Everything was perfect! 

The ceremony took place outside in the garden with the most beautiful afternoon light and a strong, magical, energetic wind. Michelle had asked me to be part of the ceremony, of course I said yes! and felt extremely honored and touched when I found out that I was to light a candle in memory of all of their loved ones who were no longer physically present. But, they made their presence known when the wind completely stopped as we lit the candles {we were worried that lighting them would be impossible}. It was so magical. The ceremony was so sweet and loving. Alex looked handsome and Michelle looked so stunning and beautiful! 

Afterwards we all gathered in another part of the garden and had champagne and delicious nibbles. Michelle tossed the bouquet from the window above, it was so sweet, you can see Alex in the window taking a photo of her. And then on to the reception in the chateau dinning room, which was gorgeous! It had beautiful old wooden floors and a huge fireplace with a huge mirror above, and yellow floral fabric covered walls, with these huge chandeliers, and candles and white roses everywhere. It was amazing!

Everything about the day was so sweet, and beautiful and from the heart. There was so much love.



I feel a bit conflicted posting photos, as I want them to have their privacy, but it was all just so beautiful I could not resist posting these few. 

I just love the top two photos of Michelle, she looks so radiant and happy!
