Nestled just outside Paris lies Château de Villette, a romantic bride’s dream. With lakes and French manicured gardens designed by Andre Le Notre, who also created the gardens at Versailles, the château creates a sense of romance, French tradition, and grandeur. The French and Italian-influenced curated details of the château inspires our design elements and color palette for this shoot, incorporating hues of buttery yellow, rose, Parisian blue, and hints of sapphire.

Our jeweler, Mellerio dits Meller, dates back to 1613 and claims the title of the oldest jeweler in the world.  Mellerio has been the appointed jeweler of all the queens of France since Marie de Medicis who awarded her Royal Warrant in 1613, and it is reported that Queen Marie Antoinette may have purchased a bracelet designed by Mellerio.  For this editorial, we featured high jewelry from Mellerio’s Monte Rosa collection, featuring diamonds and pink sapphires reminiscent of the floral appliqué seen throughout Château de Villette.
