This Chateau Wedding in France Channels the Victorian Era… And We Love It

If your dream wedding involves a castle, velvet upholstery and plenty of colorful macarons, prepare to be awed by this wedding at Hôtel Chateau d’Esclimont in France‘s Bleury-Saint-Symphorien. Jessica, Chetan and their planner Beth Helmstetter, used an undefined color palette throughout their wedding day, opting to draw inspiration from old paintings and the chateau itself for color inspiration. They used a mix of muted and rich tones in lavender, ivory, nude, blush, burgundy, sage and dusty blue to achieve the look — and it totally worked.

Vintage-inspired letterpress invitations by CeCi New York, Frédéric Garrigues’s dark, romantic floral arrangements, golden candelabras, ornate chandeliers, mismatched antique furniture, aged paintings, lush area rugs, sweet cake confections (by Laduree in Paris) topped with miniature crowns and velvet accents all came together before the backdrop of the enormous, moat-surrounded chateau.

See all of the stunning details as captured by Steve Steinhardt Photogrpahy below and here.

Escort cards are extremely easy to personalize and an excellent way to bring in your wedding day colors -- from calligraphed seating cards set atop a textured linen to apples tagged with each guest's name or small personalized bundles of lavender tied off with string. Other ways to display escort cards: Pin them to a clothesline, post them on a board covered in color-coordinated ribbon, or incorporate them into your cocktail hour using personalized stirrers tagged with guests' names.
