It’s hard to believe that Megan and Logan planned their wedding at France’s Chateau Franc Mayne while living thousands of miles away in San Francisco! Luckily for them, the expert wedding planners at Jenny Morel Weddings and Wedays had everything under control and created a gorgeous event for them and their guests. The couple’s main request was that every detail, from the color palette to the flowers, blend seamlessly with the winery and have a subtle autumnal vibe. The result was an intimate garden ceremony and a luxurious yet laid-back dinner party overlooking one of Bordeaux’s breathtaking vineyards. The golden hour portraits of the bride and groom along with the impossibly beautiful landscape photos captured by Yoris Photographe have us ready to pack your bags for a romantic adventure through the French countryside!

Chateau Franc Mayne, Bourdeaux, France
We wanted our wedding to have an intimate and fun vibe that blended in with the beautiful surroundings. With a guest list of only 18 we were able to achieve that. It was like having an amazing party with our closest friends.
I wanted a simple look that I hoped would not look dated a few years down the line. I also wanted to look like myself. I fell in love with my Lihi Hod top and skirt and the intricate details of the top and simplicity of the bottom. I kept the accessories to a minimum, just wearing a thin gold bracelet that belonged to my great grandmother. I only had a maid of honor and she wore a beautiful reformation dress that was a dark navy to match Logan‘s suit.
The majority of the details like the flowers and the catering and the music were all a bit of a surprise to us because we planned a wedding in France while living in San Francisco and we did not see everything come to life until the day of. Luckily, it was a very happy surprise!
Since we were getting married in early September I wanted to the wedding to have a slight Autumn feel, I also love simplicity. For the flowers, I chose mainly white and cream with a few pops of deep red burgundy color and lots of greenery.
For our guests, we did a beautiful wooden wine box filled with a bottle of wine from the chateau, french sparkling water, french macaroons, a lovely soap from a local store in the village and a personalized handwritten note thanking each guest for traveling so far to share in our wedding celebration.
