First, a few of my personal favorites. I love this satin bow blouse and feel a bit like the first female Vice President every time I wear it. If the gal you’re shopping for sees the world as a beautiful dream, she will cherish the opportunity to take a trip down the rabbit hole in Tim Walker’s inspiring coffee table book as much as I do. Like any good Grandmillenial, I adore chinoiserie, and this wallpaper is beautiful yet costs a fraction that many of the iconic brands do. Chloé always designs the loveliest bags that feel both understated yet elegant, and this ladylike crossbody bag would compliment almost any outfit.

Although nights out are almost a thing of the past, I still relish the opportunity to get dressed up – whether for a Zoom call or for a romantic date night chez moi. Pair this classic polka dot tulle dress with the most gorgeous Miu Miu pumps and a pearl headband that would make Blair Waldorf herself green with envy for the perfect holiday outfit. Top it off with a vintage-inspired tartan coat (with a faux fur collar, of course) and you’re set! Or, if she isn’t a headband girl, these mother of pearl floral earrings are the perfect statement piece to make any day feel special. And, when the evening is over, these pajamas will look extra chic while cozied up by the fire.

If buying clothes for the ladies on your list makes you a wee bit nervous, the elegant pieces on our Gift Guide for the Home are a surefire crowdpleaser. I also love these bow-adorned dinner napkins, this sparkling blush holiday cottage, these French blue champagne coupes, and this showstopping Gucci candle that will become an objet d’art once it’s been burned through. This body milk by one of my favorite French brands, these chocolate truffles, and this beautiful bottle of Spanish olive oil will make the perfect hostess gift or stocking stuffer.

I hope you enjoyed this elegant home gift guide! If you haven’t seen it yet, our Francophile Gift Guide and Home Gift Guide must not be missed. Stay tuned in the coming weeks for even more curated shopping experiences including guides for the Old-World traveler, the groom, and more.

                                       I can't wait to learn more about your love story!

After pursuing my degree in fashion, I began my career as a travel photographer, exploring the world one country at a time and telling the stories of the people, places, art, and ideas that moved me. But, it was when I photographed my first destination wedding that I truly found my life’s calling.

My work is luminous, poetic, elegant, and above all, intentional. It will be my deepest honor to guide you through the wedding planning process, to help you create unforgettable moments and experiences, and, ultimately, to craft images where time stands still.

I'm Molly - an international wedding photographer eternally devoted to capturing the beauty of your union. 

Bonjour mon ami,


Planning your destination wedding?

Let’s create something beautiful together.


Old-world elegance with a hint of that French ‘je ne sais quois.’
