    I am absolutely in love with this countryside venue, so authentic and stylish at the same time. I am planning to have the wedding in a similar place, with all the luxurious Chateau atmosphere and the open terrase for the outdoor reception settings.

    But the most inspiring for me are the pictures of brides and groom on the coast, having the walk on the sea brreeze.

    All about this place is an inspiration for me, including floral choice and table decor. Though my wedding palette is Ivory/Gold, and the wedding gown will be of delicate egg-shell shade as well as my Polina Perri luxury wedding invitations.

    I like the idea to incorporate lace decor with the chairs. And awesome, impressive vintage chandelier is a true centerpiece. The coutryside theme is prefectly playe with the table florals.
    Not a single detail is missed.
    Sophisticated & fabulous wedding!
