This French Blue Wedding Inspiration is featured today on Wedding Chicks!
Nestled in the rolling hills of vineyards in Northern California’s Amador County (a true hidden gem), lied a Parisian romantic evening that would have any bride dreaming of running off to France. An evening designed around classic Parisian blue, the delicatesse of the croissant and lush florals provided the perfect backdrop for A Little French Femininity in Northern California at the jaw-dropping Helwig Winery.
Inspired by Parisian blue and the sweet treats of France, Kristina of Events by Kristina Elyse designed an intimate affair for the lover of all things classic, sweet, and French. A dinner table and sweetheart table draped in silky blue linens from Creative Coverings, lush florals from Violette Fleurs and timeless pieces from Celebrations Rentals created the perfect ambiance for wedding guests to enjoy an evening full of romance and celebration. The sweetheart table wouldn’t have been complete without a stunning candelabra, a hoop chandelier draped in blooms, custom calligraphy baguette menu holders and stationery from BLXVA Designs and matching sweetheart chair signs dawning “Monsieur and Madame” by Swoonable.
The bride, dressed in a flowing Blush by Hayley Paige gown from La Soie Bridal, chose a soft and romantic look by Lea of B Gorgeous, including a loose and tousled side braid. Paired with French blue Vince Camuto heels and a stunning gold and diamond ring, the bride’s look was then complete with a simple but stunning cathedral veil. The groom sported a classic black-tie affair look from Bonobos, sure to make any bride swoon. Together, they would tie the knot in front of a ground arch of blooms and greens, with some of the prettiest views Northern California has to offer, reading their personal vows written to each other in their Art of Etiquette vow books.
Guests were treated to a beautiful spread of croissants, madeleines, macarons, and a French blue inspired three-tier cake from Baker & A Black Cat. Displayed within a gorgeous half circle floral arch, you couldn’t miss the stunning calligraphy place cards, some of Helwig’s classic wines, market flowers, and a dessert table that would make any mouth water.
And while you technically are in the rolling hills of California’s Amador County, you wouldn’t know it with the stunning vineyard views outside of Helwig Winery’s barrel room, pond and oak tree spots to sneak away to for an intimate moment alone, and the romantic feel of Ashley Baumgartner’s film images, developed and scanned by PhotoVision. It was the perfect amount of French Femininity in Northern California.
