JESSICA & CHETAN : THE WEDDING : ST. SYMPHORIEN, FRANCE

August 8, 2012

Oh, how I loved this wedding…a private chateau in the French countryside. Royalty meets vintage french flea market, overgrown gardens everywhere, tapered candles and chandeliers from every point possible, course after course of classic French cuisine and fireworks, oh the fireworks. Jessica and Chetan’s wedding weekend culminated in a ceremony overlooking the castle, the cocktail hour held on the drawbridge atop of the moat and a reception that went until 5am. The classical musicians for the ceremony were flown in from Italy to provide the perfect rendition of Ave Maria and otherwise classic European soundtrack to the day. The band, a personal favorite of the groom, was brought in for NYC for Motown and Jazz like only American musicians can play and the DJ came in from Paris who again, literally, kept the dance floor going until 5am…Every detail was thought of and perfect for this celebration. It’s a weekend that any guest in attendance will never forget…a true fairytale! A special thanks to Steve Steinhardt for the beautiful images below…And, Janis Ratnieks for the gorgeous night shots of the tent and fireworks.

Come back tomorrow for the wonderful video from Living Cinema…It’s definitely worth a peek!
