Invitations for a Château Wedding

Do people really get married in Châteaus in France? Or, is it just one of those fairy tales that girls dream about? Well, I know of at least one couple who is doing just that, and when I saw their venue, it was like it was painted from a dream.

Claire and Adam contacted me recently to design the invitations for their 2010 wedding at the gorgeous Château de Challain in France. They decided to go with a classic hand-deckled monogram invitation, with ivory cardstock, a scarlet ribbon knot, and a metallic bronze backing. Their guests are just starting to receive the invitations this week, so below is just a little preview.

Since the couple is based out of Asia, the domestic invitations were stamped, addressed, and sent out by Pink Orchid Designs, and the international invitations were packaged with pink ribbon and shipped out together.

I just can't get over how beautiful the venue is. If only there were places like this in Boston!
