Are you ready for some serious eye candy? Sit back and enjoy these gorgeous images from a French Inspired Wedding Shoot that will have you dreaming of Paris romance and French macarons for days! Designed by Jessica of JCF Events, who shares my love for gorgeous tablescapes + simple beauty, this wedding shoot has “dreamy” written all over it!  This is just one of the reasons I’ve booked her to design my wedding flowers. Take a look at these gorgeous images and you’ll see why I’m elated for June 23, 2012 to come!

In typical Courtney fashion, I’ve started with this gorgeous dessert table because aren’t the sweet treats the best part? I think so because this romantic display holds not only French macarons but also cherry almond nougat, caramels, white chocolate caramel popcorn, strawberry tarts, white chocolate covered marshmallows, sugar cookies, chocolate chip bars, and cream puffs. Send me on to sugar heaven…!

Jessica of JCF Events shared how she was inspired to style this shoot. “My inspiration was honestly, the space. We found the space and fell in love. I wanted to design a French-inspired shoot with lots of details, something purely romantic. The space has beautiful white painted wood framed windows which overlook the water falls. It also has original hardwood floors which are painted slate gray. We decided to do long, family style seating with farmhouse style tables, add a gorgeous platinum pintuck table runner and soft romantic flowers. Overhead, we hung vintage wooden window panes and chandeliers that added some sparkle.”

A lot of our readers love to know where the fabulous props + decorations come from. Jessica shared a bit of that information as well! 

“I am so very lucky that my parents own a small farm. Their main product is maple syrup and honey. They make many other confections as well. I utilized vintage mason jars from their farm, as well as reclaimed barn wood which was taken off their sugar house to create a custom table. The vintage window panes came from a family friend who has a window replacement company. Rod iron chandeliers were something we had purchased a few years back. We added oil candles and draped crystal garland on them. Along with my mother, I made raspberry rhubarb jam from their farm. We printed really great tags and tied them on with natural twine. I had a custom invitation designed and we had it printed in letterpress at our local printer. Letterpress is gorgeous and the invites were printed on Crane paper in a soft white on #220 paper. Simplistic and so very pretty!”

Advice for brides? Jessica has that too! “Our hope is that brides realize that they really can create any look. The more details, the more interest it adds to your wedding. Every little extra touch you can add to your décor makes a huge difference. This look is romantic and yet completely inviting. Long family-style tables will allow guests to mingle and get to know one in other.”

  4. It was honestly a huge collaboration of all the vendors. We designed the initial concept, then bounced ideas off of each other for the overall feel and down to the finest detail. Everyone has their own unique thing they specialize in, it all came together flawlessly.

  5. Oh my goodness! I seriously can not get over this! Love every single detail. I have a very large soft spot for anything romantically French :)
