Monique and Cedric’s story is epic… I first talked to them a year before their wedding, they were looking for a wedding planner to help them from the Philippines to plan their wedding in the South of France, in Provence, land of lavender fields in France. We quickly were connecting and had a good vibe. They were suppose to come a few weeks later to France to scout venues but unfortunately Monique had an accident that put her in a coma.
We were so surprised to receive an email from Monique about planning the wedding, 2 months later. She was so motivated by the wedding it was great to see her change over the months and getting back to normal. We loved planning this beautiful wedding with Cedric and Monique, it was not always easy but they were always so fun and involved in the process. Monique’s dedication and hard work to make her wedding in Provence come true was so inspiring. And their story is one we’ll never forget.
Their wedding was such a sunny and beautiful day (usually is in South Of France, but we never know!). The sky was clear blue and it felt like a perfect summer day. The religious ceremony was performed outside at the chateau, which is really rare for catholic ceremonies, as they are always held in churches. But the archbishop was so moved by Cedric and Monique’s story that they were granted to do it outside at Chateau Bregançon where the wedding was happening, with a direct view on the sea.
The vows exhanged by Cedric and Monique were so moving, the emotion was truly palpable and started when monique walked down the aisle. Everyone was just mesmerized and in owe in front of this beautiful bride. Monique’s gown and shoes were so unique.
The cocktail was chill and relaxed with Jazz band “Dealers of Swing” from Club 55 in Saint Tropez. Having this group was very important for Cedric & Monique as they were playing a french love song “La Vie en Rose” at Club 55 when Cedric proposed to Monique. The view over the sea from the château was magnificent and such a treat during the cocktail.
For the dinner, we had an open, nomad tent installed in the garden and the dinner was filled with laughter and emotions. The guests and couple had a great time that continued all night under the stars.
It was a real french fete and the ambiance was exceptional.
Thank you Monique & Cedric for your trust, we loved helping you to get your dream wedding in Provence.
