A wedding at a fairy tale manor

Located in the heart of the Loire Valley of France, from the moment they drove down the tree-covered alley leading up to the manor house, they knew this is where they were going to say “Oui, je le veux”. With guests arriving from France, the United States, Spain, Australia, and Lebanon, they were able to experience a true weekend getaway in the French countryside.

Guests began arriving on Friday to their country homes, excited for the weekend to come. The festivities began with a rehearsal dinner on Friday night, where guests mingled and laughed. On Saturday, the big day, guests grabbed a bike and went around the forest and nearby lakes, or went for a swim in the pool during the day. They later joined the bride and groom in front of the chapel for the bilingual ceremony, followed by a sunset cocktail hour, and a candlelit dinner inside the manor house. The next morning, guests woke up to a typical Lebanese Sunday brunch, a perfect way to end the weekend!

Inspired by the vibrant fall colors of burgundy and dark green, N & S wanted a rustic yet chic vibe for their big day. The decoration, with undertones of gold, was natural, airy, and lit up with many candles. The unique and colorful venue, surrounded by the forest, made up for the rest. From the hand-designed the invitations, to the meticulous coordination of pre and post events, it was truly a dream day.
