Ultimate wedding & party destination since 2009

Destination wedding in France: Simone + Sean

A destination wedding in Bordeaux, France, you say? That’s house party ready? The Chateau Rigaud might just be the place you want to land in. From what we hear, the Medieval Chateau is absolutely stunning, with an owner/wedding planner that helps with every step and spoils you along the way. The chateau may be a world away from us, but with S + S’s mix of modern fashion in a rustic French setting, Matt Guegan‘s love for capturing color in his photos, and Deneemotion‘s sweet moving picture, this wedding can sweep us away to France any time.

Their music: U2’s, All I Want is You string quartet version played as they walked up the aisle, Bang Bang by Petula Clark played as they were announced Mr. & Mrs., and their first dance was to Everywhere by Fleetwood Mac.
