Amelie & Laurent Provence, France

"We met at a friend's party where we both should not have been. We can call it destiny! After living together for 4 years, Laurent decided to ask me to become his wife in a beautiful place in Auvergne, in an authentic house, alone in the mountains, with no electricity, no phone... only candles, a fireplace, red wine and breathtaking walk in nature! We wanted our wedding to be something like us - chic, but not bling, with amazing food and wine; simple, smart, and authentic. It took place in Laurent's family's vineyard, which is filled with very old trees, hectares of vines, olive trees, a beautiful, romantic and Provençal castle, and an amazing tiny chapel where we celebrated our union."
