We love to flex our creative muscles and collaborate with other wedding professionals from time to time. When we recently had the opportunity to design a style shoot at the beautiful Château de Villette we jumped at the chance. This spectacular property, nicknamed Le Petit Versailles, located not far from Paris is one that we have long-admired for its perfectly symmetrical 17th century proportions, stately décor and formal jardin à la française designed by André Le Nôtre, the same landscape architect responsible for the gardens at Versailles.
With the talented team of the Komans behind the photo and video lenses we had our departure point for the shoot!
After re-visiting the spaces we decided to actually use the orangerie which had beautiful light during the day and afforded us a neutral canvas for our table set up. The orangerie was full of lemon trees being stored for the winter and those deep green leaves and citrus colors ultimately inspired our décor.
With a backdrop of the clean stone we wanted to infuse a pop of color and warmer texture so we had a velvet tablecloth custom made of the event in a dark green to set off the soft citrus hues of yellows, oranges and pinks artfully arranged by Floraison. With then accented the table with fresh white linen napkins, blue Porto plates and green and blue glassware provided by Maison Options. In lieu of traditional paper the talented Joy of Studio French Blue personalized alabaster coasters in gold calligraphy at each place setting.
Sweet Creations Cakes integrated the emerald green perfectly into the cake design with a stunning modern geode design.
Fresh colors were peppered throughout the design and we had fun styling all the brightly-hued ring boxes from Voeu du Coeur, the green stationary by Studio French and the accessories by Lindsay Marie Design.
We hope you enjoy this little tour of our emerald-hued fête recently featured on the Front Page of Style Me Pretty!
