Parisian Countryside wedding

Aug 21, 2009

This lovely French countryside fête featured in Veranda has already made the rounds on most wedding blogs but when I came across it again last week as I was putting a custom inspiration board together, I decided I had to devote a post to it - better late than never, right?

From Veranda: Inspired by an 18th-century pastoral festival,the fête champêtre, New York interior designer and stylist Kelly d'Halluin brought the vision to life for her own elegant wedding reception.
Cloche still lifes named for sculptors, photographers, and artists marked sections of the dining table. Respect was paid to each detail, exemplified on the table cards with calligraphy by Bernard Maisner.

Fuzzy baby almonds, pepper berries, and porcelain doves accompany birch-bark vessels and white and green florals down the length of the reception dining table. Paris-based floral designer Stephane Chapelle helped bring to life the rustic and refined table stylings along with the bride. Prior to the grand event the two drove around in Stephane's flower truck out at Rungis — the endless flower, fruit, and vegetable market outside of Paris — to hand select each element.
