From Jennifer Fox Weddings: "A few months before the COVID-19 pandemic, I happened upon Château d’Estoublon in the heart of Provence. With over 500 acres of sprawling, manicured grounds that include an orchard, vineyards, a pond, and a rose garden plus the regal castle, in which each room is as grand as its spectacular facade, my imagination ran wild. I dreamed of the day I could design an event here. A few months later, the opportunity to create an editorial that honored the venue and its surroundings in partnership with the amazing destination film photographer, Oliver Fly, presented itself, turning my dreams into reality. Oliver is deeply passionate about Provence, he knows perfectly the light and turned it to his advantage for to create the best set of images ever.
Guests were greeted with a curated welcome box featuring olives, rosé wine, olive oil, and other signature products from the chåteau as well as cookies to match the cake, a locally made bar of soap, and a towel as a nod to the luxuriant pool on the property.
Grey & Cake created a stationery suite featuring an illustration of Château d’Estoublon, a custom envelope liner featuring white anemones (the signature flower of the day), a lavender wreath on the menus, and a beautiful wax seal. Soft, handmade paper, inky calligraphy, and delicate silk ribbons resulted in a textural, layered suite that truly paid homage to both Provence and the venue.
Vibrant pinks served as an unexpected color palette, with purple accents as a subtle nod to Provence’s most famous export. The color selection was serendipitous, as upon arrival at the Chåteau, I discovered a lawn full of bright pink rose bushes in full bloom in front of the staircase, which is where our ceremony took place. Miss Rose by Perrine created a cascading, floral masterpiece to adorn the staircase railings, which popped against the creamy hues of the elegant chåteau and looked as if the florals had been foraged from the grounds. A simple arrangement featuring traditional, round-back Louis XVI chairs provided by Belounge, completed the ceremony set up.
The groom arrived in a 1958 MGA Roadster by Provence Classics, wearing an elegant suit by Rives featuring a shawl collar and a beautifully belted jacket. Alejandra Nerizagal pulled the bride’s hair back in a romantic chignon, showcasing her dewey, natural beauty, highlighted with peachy makeup by Ylva Langenskiold. Top Bridal Paris provided an immaculately detailed gown, which showcased exquisite beadwork on the bodice, a plunging neckline and back, a flowing, light overskirt and coordinating cape, and a bold, beaded underskirt. A pair of Bella Belle pumps completed the look, with a sheer panel that complemented the skirt of the gown.
The bride and groom changed attire for bridal portraits by the pool. The bride wore a semi-sheer gown, featuring a bold feather bodice and illusion neckline, and we chose a long, birdcage-inspired veil to allow the golden hour light to shine through. Her look was topped off with a statement, wafer paper flower, designed by Made in Cake, while the groom donned an ivory dinner jacket. Guests enjoyed the chåteau’s rosé and white wines among the olive trees along with the signature cocktail – a Provençal Kiss Martini. Gin, Saint Germain, freshly squeezed grapefruit juice, and lavender combined to create a vibrant, refreshing drink that truly captured the beauty and feeling of the area.
A long, rectangular table dressed in crisp, pure linens by Madame de la Maison was set with regal gold and white porcelain and crystal by Joli Bazaar for the intimate reception dinner on the chåteau lawn. Lavender taper candles, vibrant floral arrangements, and an abundance of local wine and olive oil completed the tablescape. At the finish of the perfect evening, guests enjoyed a slice of the pink olive oil cake – made using the chåteau’s production, of course – with poached apricots and rosemary cream."
