This intimate elopement editorial planned & styled by RACHAEL ELLEN EVENTS, took place at a charming 17th century chateau in the Champagne region of France. With its tasteful and authentic renovations, CHÂTEAU DE MAIRY is set on 10 hectares of gardens and woodland, serving as the perfect backdrop for this countryside elopement captured by ADELYN BOLING. Drawing inspiration from the quaint surroundings of the small village, the design team - including Vancouver wedding planner WONDERSTRUCK WEDDINGS & EVENTS - chose a neutral palette with a powder blue foundation to produce a classic, and timeless aesthetic. The ornate detailing in the dinner plates and wrought-iron chairs add dimension to the tablescape, with elegant brushed gold accents elevating the overall design. Beautiful paper goods by wedding stationery designer MICHAELA MCBRIDE CALLIGRAPHY have a refined yet organic aesthetic. Candid moments of the couple are framed in crisp, yet soft light, producing an almost ethereal glow. The romantic allure and organic charm of the French countryside will surely inspire couples considering a destination elopement with timeless details.
