Destination wedding in France: Simone + Sean

Paloma Blanca wedding dress

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.
