After hearing that Rachel + Fabien are both French 3D artists working on a short film together, we’re not surprised that their wedding is filled with so much cinematic beauty. The vintage ambiance, antique mailbox, and airmail stationary—all nods to their movie. Pretty neat, yes? And then there’s the location… We’re fans of any film—we mean, wedding—set in a quaint backyard garden in the South of France. Thanks to Anne-Claire Brun for sharing the beautiful photos with us.

Rachel + Fabien’s love story is straight out of a movie too. Rachel says, I was 14 years old and Fabien was 19 when we met each other. We were on a train between Paris and Montpellier. When I saw Fabien, I don’t know why but I really wanted to know him. Because I was too shy, I asked to my younger brother to give him a piece of paper with my e-mail address. We just fell in love really quickly after that.

When I was on the old bicycle with Fabien, with all our guests behind us, I really had the impression I had been brought back a century earlier. In spite of the rain at the end of the afternoon, we smiled all day long.

Rachel + Fabien asked their guests to dress like they were from the turn of the 20th century. And they happily obliged! Everyone came prepared with a moustache, a hat, or a rad vintage accessory.

Laura + Kyle’s wedding is one of those events we wish we could dive right into. From the impeccably styled tablescape to that yummy looking signature cocktail… Hudson Nichols’ photos make the whole day look pretty perfect, don’t they? And according to Laura, the focus was really on having a fun and comfortable atmosphere. She and Kyle placed less importance on some of the traditional aspects of a wedding—no bouquet toss and no long speeches here—and more on having guests feel at ease.

Laura’s gorgeous veil that you see in the very first photo was a DIY by her mom. She incorporated pieces of lace from her own veil, which was also worn by three of Laura’s aunts, one of her cousins, and Laura’s three sisters. So sweet!

Laura + Kyle scoured thrift stores for all the vases on the tables, and then painted the bottom sections with gold paint. Just like this little DIY we shared this morning!

Laura says, Kyle and I are both a bit introverted so we decided to read our vows to each other in private before the ceremony. It was just the two of us and the moment was very personal and intimate.

What a beautiful moment. Congrats you guys!
