Let them eat wedding cake…or whatever Marie Antoinette said! This elegant wedding inspiration drawn from classic Impressionist French art combines a rustic countryside with a delicate European-inspired palette for the most magical styled shoot planned by House of Tales Events. In beautifully light and airy scenes, Jen Symes Photography captures every intricate detail in digital and film for timeless wedding shots you will treasure forever. A Victorian-esque invitation suite by Brown Fox Creative is made up of the prettiest paperie and floral-embossed wax stamps seal the deal for a striking soiree. There isn’t a more perfect place for this elegant wedding inspiration than The French Farmhouse Venue, where provincial architecture, 1800s-era reclaimed French doors, and the grove of woods surrounding their scenic, double-trunked kissing tree makes for a seriously stunning ceremony setup. Fine china and ornate silverware from POSH Couture Rentals combine with opulent crystal elements creating a dramatic, yet delicate tablescape where a square cake design by Ashton Marie Cakes turns on an edge for a nontraditional twist that doesn’t look overdone – on the topic of sips, HD Liquid Catering creates drinks that look too good to be true, spruced up with floral ice cubes and 17th-century artwork in every craft cocktail. Styled with both soft and full glam hair and makeup by WZ Beauty Studio and clad in exquisite bridal attire from Stanley Korshak Bridal Salon, this model bride shows off a timeless romantic gown as well as a modern bridal jumpsuit with detachable skirt for the stylish bride. She is absolutely the star of the show in this elegant French wedding inspiration! Read on for a note from the planner about the vision behind the design and styling of this impeccably styled shoot. Cheers!

From the planner, House of Tales Events: “This French Elegance inspiration shoot portrays a perfect scenario of a film inspired dreamy romantic love story that is at once soft and romantic but with wildly gorgeous moody and bold details. Drawing inspiration from Impressionist French art, the color palette includes touches of dusty rose, mauve, French blue and layers of cream and white. You will be swooning over all the lush florals by Luxe Petals brimming with orchids and roses cascading over the venue’s 1800s reclaimed French church door and embracing the massive double trunked ‘kissing tree’ as the focal point of the ceremony space. House of Tales Events delivers both amour and passion in their modern and romantic bold design perfectly captured by Jen Symes Photography. Viewers ready for adventure will be tempted with a one-way ticket to the French countryside.”
