Style Me Pretty – Black Tie Wedding in a French Chateau

There’s something instantly magical about getting married in a far away land. Destination  weddings make an already exciting event event more so with the mystery of a new place.

The house itself is grand and impressive, a theme clearly carried out in this grand party. The “Monsieur” and “Madame” chairs with floral garlands, well they’re just the icing on the cake!
