Modern Contemporary Chateau Wedding Ideas
Prepare to be wowed by this effortlessly elegant yet organic editorial fresh from Europe today as we're transported into deepest romance with the Chateau location, crumbling walls, gilded details and ethereal bridal looks. French photographer Alain M. (whom I was lucky to meet at a workshop a short time ago!) has blown me away with this Vogue-esque editorial and I know you guys will love it too....
From photographer Alain M.: "Located in Alsace (eastern France, at the border of Germany), the Chateau de Froeshwiller is an incredible place with a very unique, and timeless atmosphere. Surrounded by its own charm, the place inspired us to create a contemporary design, linking poetry and modernism, while breaking the codes of the wedding sphere. The natural color palette and the organic fabrics being used: hemp, pleated chiffon, crystal, and ceramic brings a contemporary touch to the ensemble.
We’ve decided to play on the contrasts. The light and the shadows, the lines and the fabrics, and center our work around the bride, a woman that’s free and modern, who’s strong yet delicate."
