Wedding at the Château de Chantilly by American wedding planner in France

This pink and blue elegant château wedding near Paris took place inside the grounds of the Domaine de Chantilly. Located just an hour away from Paris and dating back to the 14th century, the château and grounds feature beautiful French gardens, breathtaking backdrops for couple photos and a large selection of spaces for both the rehearsal dinner and their wedding day.


The rehearsal dinner took place in the former grand kitchen of the château, now transformed into a restaurant with vaulted ceilings and copper pots on the walls. For the ceremony and reception, the couple chose the Maison de Sylvie, an intimate reception venue hidden in the park of the Château.





The sunset ceremony took place in front of the arch opening to the garden which was gracefully decorated with roses of various pink shades. The wedding design revolved around a beautiful palette of pinks with touches of pale blue and blue & white chinoiserie style vases. Keeping with the decor theme, the bridesmaids wore light blue dresses and the groom wore a chic navy tuxedo. The bouquets were made with soft pink flowers, with added touches of purple orchids for the bridal bouquet.





The cocktail centered around café tables and high tables covered with light pink linens. The couple’s entrepreneurial project, Little Fancy, was of course a part of the drinks on offer. Guests were entertained by a jazz band and an illustrator painting their fashionable outfits.





The dinner took place in the main ballroom of the venue, with the head table in the middle below the grand chandelier. The table decor carried on the wedding design with blue linen tablecloths set with blue and white plates and low centerpieces with roses in shades of pink and a few orchids for a modern touch. The tables numbers and printed menus, printed in pink on pale pink cardstock, carried through the crest the couple had used on their invitations. Even the wedding cake perfectly matched the palette: pink on the inside but a white, blue and gold design on the outside inspired by the plates.





The evening continued with first dances and then the band got everyone on the dancefloor. The bride changed into a light pink tea-length dress and danced the night away with her groom, their friends and family.
