Dreamy French Château Wedding


December 7, 2022

Where do I even begin with Elizabeth and Jason? Their wedding day was filled with so much love and intention. From the beautiful details and florals, to even just how much thought went into coordinating such a joyous day. It was absolute perfection. Their Dreamy French Château Wedding was a complete dream and perfectly summed up Jason and Elizabeth’s love and dedication to one another.

Hotel Du Village – A Pennsylvania Based French Château

Hotel Du Village is an exclusive French Château located in Bucks County, PA. This beautiful location sits on 12 acres of land and really gives off that historic county estate vibe all within the Bucks County countryside. The estate has actually been restored in order to blend together historic and modern elements to elevate your wedding day. When you book a wedding at Hotel Du Village, you not only have access to the restored estate but also to their ballrooms and perfectly manicured grounds.

Dreamy French Château Wedding

The morning of Jason and Elizabeth’s wedding, I was photographing their insanely beautiful details. Like the definition of elegant if you ask me. Elizabeth got ready with her bridal party, enjoying some champagne and really relishing the moment. All eyes are on her. She slipped into her dress and everyone gasped as they saw her walk out for her first look. Teary-eyed, jaws dropped and audible gasps proved that she was the most beautiful bride. While Elizabeth was getting ready with her crew, Jason was with his. Enjoying his time with his groomsmen before making his way outside to the courtyard where he was to meet his beautiful bride-to-be.

First Looks, A Dreamy Outdoor Ceremony & An Epic Reception

A first-look moment between the two lovers led to many laughs, giggles, and happy tears. The wind was rustling and the sun was shining as we wandered through the gardens taking portraits of the stunning couple. Before we knew it, the ceremony was starting to begin. A painter sits in the back as he documents this moment for Elizabeth and Jason. A unity ceremony bound by the lighting of a candle eventually led to Elizabeth and Jason’s first kiss as husband and wife.

Beyond that, hors d’oeuvres and custom cocktails were served as the guests stood enjoying a serene cocktail hour. The reception space opened up in one of Hotel Du Village’s ballrooms and the happy couple made their debut as newlyweds. The exchanging of speeches, the cutting of the cake, and an open dance floor led to a night absolutely worth remembering. So much love filled the room as everyone was there celebrating the happy couple – I am truly honored to have captured such precious moments.

Cheers to Elizabeth and Jason and a life of pure happiness.
