Inspired by a place of picturesque passion, we’re in love with the overt elements of European charm in this romantic French garden wedding inspiration shoot from Chic Fleur Weddings & Events! AR Photography was behind the lens to capture the setting in all of its scenic glory, from the sweet little lounge area to the feminine details in the table setting. The Dallas Arboretum‘s sprawling green lawns and stone step-dotted backdrop elegantly set the scene for the nature-surrounded fête. Golden Greys set the tone for the soft and sweet set-up with a paper suite in shades of mauve and sage green, adding a subtle vintage feel. A lounge from Coral Lane provided a welcome reception for guests to soak up the garden views, consisting of a dove grey tufted settee, plum sofa and a uniquely shaped gold and glass coffee table. Petal dusted cake petit fours from The Butterfly Cake Factory awaited their guests on the table and were an appropriately dainty alternative to the classic tiered wedding cake. At the center of the shoot, Posh Couture Rentals contributed everything from the cross-back wood chairs to the rattan charger plates at the grand table setting. An impressive overhang of greenery, along with the table centerpieces of mauve, blush and ivory blooms, were carefully crafted and arranged by Something Pretty Floral to create the perfect garden party table scape! The model bride’s look fully embodied the romantic setting in her ethereal lace overlay embellished gown from Lovely Bride, accompanied by a soft half up-do with wispy waves and a loose braid done by The Styling Stewardess to complete the look. To say we’re still swooning over these images is the ultimate understatement! Cheers to charming romance!

From the planner: “Romantic French garden was our inspiration for this shoot. We often have brides that want their head table to stand out from the guest tables. We wanted to showcase a fun way to pull together natural elements with classic tabletop dinnerware pieces.”
