So as you may know, especially if you follow me on Instagram, my boyfriend (now husband) and I got married in May! We had a small destination wedding in the South of France with 12 of our closest friends and family. Since we are both wedding photographers we knew we wanted to do something a bit different and not have to deal with the drama that comes along with having a 100+ guest list. Don't worry though if you are having a big wedding! We still had drama lol.
We found our "venue" on Airbnb which also doubled as everyone's accommodations for the week. It was a stunning 14th century chateau in the small town of Saint-Hippolyte-de-Caton located around nine hours south of Paris. This place was wildly beautiful and I still can't believe we got married there! Everyday started off with an adventure to the nearest bakery to get fresh croissants (HOLY CRAP WERE THEY EVER DELICIOUS!) and some other staples for the day. We relaxed pool-side or would go on mini road trips to the near towns and be tourists for the day. Half of our group had never been to Europe before and the other half had never been to France so we were excited to explore the stunning countryside. I would definitely recommend it can't wait to go back one day with Joey!
Our wedding day was really low-key and relaxed. We started out the day the same as the others, with croissants and coffee out on the patio. We got ready in the afternoon, did our first look and then some photos and had a late ceremony with cocktails and dinner afterwards. The night ended with a lot of Drake, ska music, some crazy dance moves, and jumping into the pool!
Some of these photos are from the sweet little town of Saint-Hippolyte-de-Caton, including our chateau, Arles, Nimes, and other little towns that we stopped in because of their beauty. Enjoy :)
I couldn't help myself, I had to take some photos on my own wedding day!
Now some actual photos of our wedding from our insanely talented wedding photographer Kristin Sweeting.
This one below is one of my absolute favourite wedding photos! This was well after midnight and after a lot of drinks!
Now back to my photos!
