Chateau de Chantilly, Paris| France
The renowned Chateau de Chantilly is located very close to Paris, only 50km and has a very rich history. The château’s art gallery, the Musée Condé, houses one of the finest collections of paintings in France. The chateau is captivating in every way. The surrounding gardens combined with the exceptional architecture of the Domaine, are the absolute dream for a destination wedding in France. Alice & Bob are from the US and as they wanted to get married in France, the Chateau Chantilly was a perfect choice! At this wedding, I had the pleasure to collaborate with one of the best wedding planners in France, Fête in France. Nancy is very professional, her attention to detail is prominent and she is a very pleasant person. Trust me, she will turn your dream of having a destination wedding at a French chateau into a wonderful reality! The couple hosted a rehearsal dinner, the day before, which is always a great opportunity to have documented. They were some very emotional speeches from their friends and family and we had the chance to have a lot of pictures from guests, saving a lot of time from the wedding day itself. As an added bonus, since the couple was already dressed up, we couldn’t pass the chance to do an engagement session at the chateau’s premises. That helped a lot with posing on the wedding day, as we were relatively limited in time. If you are looking for a French Chateau wedding, France has definitely a lot of choices for you and Chateau de Chantilly should definitely be one amongst them!
The following pictures are from the rehearsal dinner and the engagement session that took place in the premises of the Chateau Chantilly. The Domaine’s beauty and elegance are a true French masterpiece. Enjoying a glass of Champagne or some French wine can make you daydream of the noble times this building has witnessed.

I cannot recommend Elias any more highly – his photos were perfectly lit, edited, with gorgeous natural light and he was so easy to work with. Some things that stood out in our process with Elias. He was great with communication – helping develop a rapport even before meeting in person. The day of and rehearsal dinner he helped us feel comfortable but also was able to blend in seamlessly and get beautiful pictures of both events.
In receiving our photos, my husband and I were thrilled! Having the ability to have both film and digital photographs was amazing and his galleries were easy to download and share with family/friends! Plus, everyone looked so stunning and natural.
I am so happy we went with Elias and now have his beautiful pictures to remember our wedding forever.
