Ouzouer-sur Trézée, France

Every wedding that I’ve been to has been pretty amazing, and uniquely representative of the couple.  But Janine and Christophe’s wedding in Ouzouer-sur Trézée, France was something spectacular.  I mean, it’s not every day that I have a friend get married in a château!  I took over 100 photos, but culled them down for their privacy.  I included a rare photo of me riding in the backseat of our car to the church!  (I like to sit in the middle so I can see out the front window, I know, it’s weird.)

J and C were married in a stunning church.  The ceremony was largely in French, and although I had no idea what was being said, my friend Emily translated.  I’m not sure how much she was adding lib, but she had me in tears–it was such a touching and beautiful ceremony.  Cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, dinner, and dancing followed at a nearby château for the next 12 hours.  I felt like I was in a fairy tale, I can’t believe places like this exist.  True to J, everything was personalized and fun.  Instead of traditional place cards, she wrote letters to each guest!  Party favors included a deck of cards with instructions for Sh*thead–which is one of the best card games and a favorite to play with her, and everyone was given a J and C mad libs.
