Chanel’s Pre-Wedding Picnic at a French Chateau

November 29th, 2016

I’ve been looking forward to the holiday season as much as the next girl, don’t get me wrong, but if you asked me what’s really given me butterflies over the last month, it’d have to be my anticipation of this very moment. Finally, this week, Eric and I get to share some of our favorite photos from our destination wedding weekend in France. And it starts today with our epic picnic.

On the Saturday before the wedding, we kicked the festivities off with a picnic lunch at Chateau du Grand-Lucé. Thirty of our closest friends and family members had arrived to the property the night before and settled into their accommodations, but for the rest of our 90 guests, this picnic was the first time setting foot on the 75-acre slice of heaven. The gates flung open, the bus slowed to a stop, and the weekend began.

Enjoy some of our favorite photos from the magical afternoon below, and tomorrow, we’ll be sharing more photos from the event.

  5. What a dreamy dreamy way to kick off your wedding weekend, Chanel (and Eric). I can’t wait to see more!

  6. Your pique-nique was so sunning, the most picturesque day! I have a huge favour to ask – I am getting married in the Loire Valley in June next year and I would love to get in touch with the caterer you used to create those gorgeous picnic baskets. Could you please share their contact details if that’s ok? And I love those felt signs! Just gorgeous!! Thank you so much!

      Amazing! A bride after my own heart. Chambord Prestige did our catering all weekend, and I couldn’t recommend them more highly!

      • Sorry the website wouldn’t let me reply directly to your comment! Thank you very much for the response, I’ve just sent a request to Chambord Prestige so I’ll make sure to mention your recommendation. We are getting married at Chateau de Jalesnes and I’m slowly ticking off different elements but caterer was one I was still undecided about! Thank you again for your help, reply and of course the gorgeous inspo xx
