A Chic French Elopement at Château de Villette on Style Me Pretty

An absolute highlight of 2021 was having the opportunity to spend two days at the exquisite Château de Villette with Kaleb Norman James and Smith + James Events for the most incredible elopement. Today, I’m thrilled to share that the photos have been published on the front page of Style Me Pretty.

As told by Style Me Pretty, “This stunning day at Chateau de Villette was the perfect combination of modern and ornate! Lush florals and elaborate paper goods took stage – and it’s a contrast we love oh so much. Smith James Events and Kaleb Norman James Design knocked this day out of the park to create the French fairytale you’ve all been waiting for. If things like classic gowns, dramatic draping, and clean lines inspire you, you’re going to want to check out the full gallery captured by Molly Carr Photography.

From Tory and Lauren of smith + james events…When designing this shoot we took our cues from the Chateau grounds and interior design, which is truly something to behold. Napoleon Bonaparte’s wife’s bathtub resides in the master bathroom. Enough said.

We focused our design on the combination of the strong, clean lines of the perfectly manicured chateau gardens coupled with the ornate, over the top styling of the chateau interior – we already mentioned the bathtub, but the dining room’s molding is also pure perfection. And we let this juxtaposition guide the overall aesthetic of the shoot.

Now, let’s talk about the fashion. We fell in love with the overall clean, classic design of the moire silk gown our bride wore. But our favorite part was the dramatic draping and an elongated train, both so exaggerated and so fabulous. The groom wore a beautiful suit and classic bow tie. When we found out that our models were celebrating their one year anniversary the day after our shoot we basically broke out into show tunes. Perhaps it was kismet. We certainly think so.

When it came to the table design, we selected the dining chair because of its modern clean lines. And we loved the unexpected pop of black the chair brought, particularly when photographed in the soft morning light against the beautiful stone Chateau. The lushness of centerpiece floral and the ornate paper goods added more of that contrast we love so much.
