As seen in Vogue
This editorial bridal campaign for Universo by Karen Rodrigues at Chateau de Villette was truly remarkable. Karen brought together the most magnificent team. Everything about this day is the epitome of luxury and romance, and I couldn’t be more thrilled to share all the beauty we created on this perfect cloudy summer day in Condécourt, France.
There couldn’t have been a more perfect venue to host this editorial than Chateau de Villette. Every inch of this estate is dripping with french charms and grandeur.
The gardens were the most beautiful heaven, and the views were stunning. I loved how the intricate, classic design of the garden complimented Karen’s gorgeous gowns.
I’m so thrilled this collection is out in the world, and I couldn’t have been more honored to be part of sharing it with hopeful brides.
I loved how Oz’Home put together the lushest florals for us, and the color palette brought everything together beautifully. Muted and soft, they were such an excellent pairing for the stonework and regal decor of the Chateau.
A destination wedding in France is a dream for almost any couple. Planning a successful destination starts with putting together the right team, and this one was perfection.
This venue, in particular, is a true treasure. After this editorial, I can so clearly envision the most spectacular wedding day within these Chateau walls and gardens.
The garden would be a perfect location for a first look just before saying, “I do.”
The rooms within the château check every item on my list of must-haves for a getting-ready room. Every room has stunning floor-to-ceiling windows perfect for bridal portraits before the ceremony.
Shooting here was a delight, and I was overjoyed to see this editorial featured in the October issue of Vogue print magazine. I couldn’t be more thrilled with all of the beautiful images we were able to create together. I hope they inspire you to plan your Chateau de Villette wedding.
