Style Me Pretty | Charming Burgundy Wedding Inspiration

Mon amour!! This is the feature we’ve been waiting for! The talented Sylvie Gil hosted one of her incredible workshops in Burgundy, France and Brooke added her sparkling touch to deliver an inspirational shoot like no other! Decadent elegance frosted with sophisticated beauty and endless amounts of charm graced the grounds of this gorgeous chateau as an incredible team of designers created the perfect French destination wedding. Featured on Style Me Pretty, this French dream is romance at it’s finest and we invite you to share in this breathtaking photoshoot!

“Chateau de Varennes is located in the gorgeous Burgundy region of France. With its expansive grounds, gardens, chateaux and chapel, it makes for the perfect wedding venue. Just recently named CNN’s top ten wedding venues worldwide, it was the only venue in France to receive these honors. When Sylvie was in search of the perfect workshop location and came across Chateau de Varennes, it was a no brainer!

When Sylvie asked me to collaborate with her, I was so excited to dive in and start designing. I knew I had to bring over the rock star duo, Holly and Becky from Holly Flora to help me execute my vision. I wanted there to be cohesiveness throughout the 3 days of the workshop, but I also wanted to create interest and slightly different color palettes to keep the attendees interested from day to day. The underlying tone of the week was the color blush. Some say it is such a traditional decision, but every day, I put a completely different twist on such a ‘tradition’ and ‘typical’ color that is often incorporated in weddings because it is timeless.

All of the attendees were able to sign up for one on ones with the instructors. The great thing is that each instructor offered a different type of one on one. Bianca from Little Miss Press offered a calligraphy class, which all of the attendees loved, and Holly Flora offered foraging in the backcountry of the chateaux. This gave the attendees the opportunity to help pick the items that would accompany the floral designs for the day.

The first day we infused it with natural greens, ivories, whites and blooming branches into the styled shoots. The second day, we infused a deep burgundy color with the blush as well as blooming branches, whites, ivories and natural greens. And the third and final day, we incorporated mixed metals along with blush, butter yellow, whites, ivories, soft peach and natural greens. Where they all had the underlying blush tone, they all looked different and created a different mood and feel for each day. It is proof that blush can be more impactful when paired with other colors and tones!
