Franco-American couple Caitlin & Guillaume's wedding is a dark, romantic celebration full of black wedding decor, rich autumnal flowers and love. Wait until you see the acrylic signs and honeycomb table plan - talk about showstopping! They said their I Do's under a Sequoia tree, officiated by their three brothers and spoken in French and English. It was personal, heartfelt and looked like a fairytale.

After looking for what seemed like forever, we happened upon our venue and fell in love with it immediately. We also chose to hire an AMAZING wedding planner - Mélanie of Féelicité. She knows everyone and recommended nearly all of our suppliers. Together we came up with the magical bohemian vibe including lots of black wedding decor.

Family Wedding

Friends and family came from all over the world to celebrate Caitlin & Guillaume's wedding. In the garden of an old hunting lodge built by a former German Emperor, they said their I do's under a giant Sequoia tree surrounded by boho wedding decor. Their parents read blessings, representative of the blending of their French, German, and American cultures. Plus they ate traditional flammkuchen while their sister-in-law's gipsy jazz band serenaded everyone.

Black Wedding Decor

Wildflowers, black wedding decor and fabric table runners make this wedding ceremony and reception in France a magical bohemian dream. The rich autumnal colour palette echos the ochre and rust mismatched bridesmaid dresses. With everything popping against the dark vases, acrylic signs and natural botanical settings. To quote the wedding planner, it's a dark industrial, foresty, hyggeligt fairytale, and we couldn't agree more!

Lace wedding dresses are a staple fashion choice, and will never go out of style.

Get a wedding planner! They will save you so much heartache and save you a lot of stress. It's totally worth the money. Also, splurge on the flowers! They make everything so beautiful and people really remember them.

The magnificent mustard Chrysanthemums paired with greenery and black wedding decor are a match made in heaven. The styling really sets the tone for this bohemian celebration.
