French Wedding Inspiration at a European-Inspired Castle

Could there be anything more romantic than a fairytale wedding at a stone castle? You'll find it hard to believe this European-inspired editorial is actually rooted right here in Texas. Thanks to The Castle at Rockwall's stunning backdrop, it was possible to bring a European bridal session to life without wandering too far from home.

This editorial styled shoot is filled with warm colors and delicate details, featuring a stunning bride and an inviting tabletop. We would love to pull up a chair at this en plein air gathering. Wouldn't you?

Planner / Stylist Kristen Jeremias (Ivory and Lace Events) captures it perfectly: 

"The challenge was to create something more magical than your typical French provincial-rustic scenery while still maintaining the intimacy that such a scene evokes. But I think we’ve struck the perfect balance between whimsy and reality here. The greenery is very untamed and wild but the play against the deeper hues is grounding, luxe and sensual. It’s like you’ve wandered out of the woods to come upon this storybook soiree. And isn’t that what every bride wants on their day? To find themselves immersed in their own dream world, rendered completely radiant in the sheer magic of it all."

The European feel of this editorial is topped with a gorgeous unstructured bouquet. Hints of sunrise orange play against ivory and peach blooms, accented by textural thistles (a subtle pop of blue contrast) and plenty of organic greenery. Wouldn't these fine art wedding flowers make a perfect bouquet for a summer bride?
