Lisa and Brian from California were married at the stunning Chateau de Bourron, located about one hour south of Paris. Lisa spent much of her childhood growing up in Paris, and spent weekends at Bourron-Marlotte where her family had a second home. It was there that she learned to ride horses and even competed in equestrian events. Hence, we made it a point to photograph the couple at the Poney club, a place which meant a lot to Lisa, and where she had many fond memories from her youth. I started the wedding day by photographing the bride and groom getting ready, accompanied by their closest relatives and friends. The couple arrived at the town’s church in a lovely antique carriage. There they said their vows and were greeted with enthusiasm by their guests upon exiting. The cocktail took place outside in front of the chateau, and the dinner in two beautiful dining rooms inside. The day culminated with fireworks and then dancing in the chateau’s basement.
