Toulon France Wedding.
The passionate love of Barbara and Maxime was celebrated with a beautiful wedding hidden within the vineyards of Toulon, France. What first started as a meeting between mutual friends quickly turned into a dinner date and dancing all night. And two years later, the couple said “I do” in front of family and friends in the gorgeous French countryside.
French model Barbara’s classic bridal style spoke for itself. Glittering peep toe heels, a delicate and traditional lace veil, and a romantic rose bouquet tied with lace ribbons were all precursors to her enchanting gown.
Her mermaid style gown featured lace fabric and appliques, an illusion neckline, and a dramatic skirt. She accessorized with dangling earrings and long curls by her shoulders.
Maxime, a handsome professional Rugby player, has undeniable style. On his wedding day, he chose a navy blue tuxedo with a matching tie and dainty boutonniere.
The ceremony took place outdoors under a floral arbor made with heaps of pink roses, dahlias, silver dollar eucalyptus, and assorted greenery for a plush and sumptuous presentation.
The bride appeared with a veil framing her face and was escorted down the aisle to her groom, who stood waiting with anticipation.
They exchanged vows and rings in front of their loved ones, including groomsmen in black tuxedos and bridesmaids in short white dresses and flower crowns.
During the ceremony, when loved ones stood to talk, the bride and groom each sat in a personalized chair as they listened.
They sealed their vows with a kiss and were all smiles as they made their way back up the aisle, stealing one more smooch as they neared the end. Guests on both sides showered them with bubbles.
The beautiful Barbara and her handsome Maxime took photos after the ceremony that were as stylish and passionate as they are.
Their bridal party also took a few fun photos before the reception began. The posh celebration allowed guests to mingle and explore between several furnished areas on the property.
Tasty hors d’oeuvres were passed for guests and the delicious offerings were clearly handpicked for their elegant presentations, as well.
Seating arrangements were creatively displayed in a variety of chic picture frames all presented on one larger frame outfitted with floral touches.
The brilliant white reception featured white tables and matching chairs. Charming bird cages hung from the ceiling, while pink uplighting and romantic centerpieces filled with pink roses added soft color.
But it wasn’t all soft and gentle! The couple surprised and dazzled everyone with a sparkler show from the dessert table which included a champagne tower in the center.
Forged years ago, Barbara and Maxime share a strong, sincere bond that could only be honored with a resplendent French wedding. Their wedding day symbolized everything that makes their relationship exceptional, while instilling the hope of all they wish it to become.
