Weddings Elsewhere - Fall 2014

No Need in Provence, France WeddingsElsewhere.com 31 The Reception: Imagine that your wedding recep-tion takes place under a night of stars, the cricket’s song in the background. Your wedding is like in your dreams, but you offer your attendees the chance to live this unique moment with you! While having a cocktail reception outside is fairly common, enjoying the entire reception outside in front of a beautiful view, alongside a welcoming and charming country house is easily accomplished here in Provence. The sun is in its zenith in a clear blue sky. Then at 9:00 p.m., you discover the horizon has turned slightly pinkish, and your special day takes on a new shape. Shortly you will be then under a sky of brilliant stars. Your dream has just become a reality! My Tips: Pick up a venue with large trees, such as the Plane tree. They are the most natural way to protect you and your guests from the afternoon sun. Also, most houses in Provence face south, shielding your reception from any breezes and offering a beautiful backdrop for your wedding. The Wedding Ceremony: Concretize your love with wedding vows taken in a field of olive trees or of lavender, or even at a vineyard. Whatever location you choose, the landscape of Provence is stunning. Different landscapes and locations lend themselves to different wedding decorations and styles. Choose a palette of soft colors, which covers all the nuances of the countryside. Photographer / Muriel Saldalamacchia com
