Take a minute to transport yourself to France, as today you get to see so much wedding inspiration from this Vaux-le-Vicomte Wedding Editorial!
An XVIIth century chateau built by the architect of Louis the XVI, Vaux le Vicomte has traditional French gardens designed by Andre Le Notre. Chateau de Versailles was based on this model. On arrival, you are blown away by the architecture, and once inside, you are astonished by the interior. Its unique oval shape makes the main ballroom as wide as it is high. Its black and white floor tiles and a painting depicting a beautiful sky with white clouds on the ceiling are breathtaking. Our inspiration came from the elements in the ballroom. The color palette came from the ceiling painting; sky blue and fluffy romantic clouds.
Our main attraction, Madame Artisan Fleuriste, went above and beyond with the florals for the tablescape, which was what we envisioned. The Astilbes were the base form of her design, with various shades of pink incorporated. Our goal was to have an ethereal cloud look by the types of flowers used. She then rested the floral arrangements upon tall modern-looking gold stands as if floating above the table. We mixed colors and layered different fabrics, including a textured tablecloth from Nuage Designs, a silk runner from Daucus Tinctura, and a custom velvet creation to recreate the complexity of the sky painted above on the ceiling.
Scalloped chargers and gold-rimmed plates on top, paired with deep blue cutlery from Maison Options, gave us a bit of contrast. One of the details we loved about this tablescape was the little lace plates courtesy of Canigueral Mesas con Esencia, which looked perfect sitting next to the bigger plates. Black taper candles added a dramatic touch to the chic black and white medallion chairs, complementing the flooring. Finally, gold accents were used on the rim of the glasses, and round plates, cutlery, candle holders, and flower stands to tie the whole tablescape together.

We also chose the same accent colors for the invitation suite, which was another detail that we were very excited about. Crimson letters were pulled in with a black envelope to contrast the white paper. This invitation was dreamy with gold leaf motifs and light pink watercolor strokes drawn in the same shade as the roses.
For the first bridal look, we worked with Said Kobeissy. This dress was the perfect mix of modern romance. Intricate flowers and sparkles fit well with the ballgown skirt on top. Chana Marelus was a beautiful ethereal look for our second dress. The breeze coming through the French windows of the Chateau gave our model the appearance of flying away. In our third look by Chana Marelus, a shimmery gown reflected light beautifully off the train and looked like a princess gown.
It’s always such a joy creating content like this worldwide. Enjoy scrolling through some of my favorites from this Vaux-le-Vicomte wedding editorial!
