Witnessing the dance of delicate florals and the sublime charm of France is like watching the world’s most immaculate masterpiece take its final form in front of your eyes. If this sounds like a poetic fragment, just imagine how it feels to attest to this floral grandeur in person. And that is precisely how it felt to design Melissa and Chris's love celebration, which took place in the remarkable Château de Varennes. 

France is the ideal destination for a variety of reasons. From boasting an incredibly pleasant climate to featuring immaculate locations to crown your love in, there are a plethora of reasons why planning a château wedding is a delightful idea. In the case of Melissa and Chris, the affair was a genuine floral grandeur. It was an intimate union with only 8 guests, embodying the couple’s most dazzling dreams.

"The hue palette of this colorful wedding was, what many will say, quite unusual for such an event. This is due to the fact this was a Monet's garden-inspired wedding. It was a medley of pinks, peach and dusty pink, orange, purple, buttercream yellow, and a hint of dusty blue. I was more than thrilled to design utilizing this amazing burst of hues, as it meant I could work with a variety of florals."

For the bride’s bouquet, we opted for the same color palette and created a medium-size design. The O’Hara roses in cream and pink radiated a delightful scent. I deem this crucial as the scent stays embedded in the memories for the longest. While you may forget how something was decorated and which was the most striking detail of this luxurious wedding, you will never forget the scent. We have incorporated Clematis, Shiraz spray roses, and Japanese anemones to add more movement to the bouquet. Naturally, the groom received a dazzling boutonniere to match the bride.

As for the ceremony decor of this magnificent wedding, we designed a grounded arch replicating a colorful garden. We incorporated a variety of florals, hues, and sizes, including allium, delphinium, hydrangeas, garden and spray roses, clematis, as well as aster, campanula, and lush greenery. The grounded arch looked ethereal in front of the immaculate chateau background.

For the aisle, we used a combination of floral places at every row and adorned the chair where the bride’s deceased mom’s picture was placed. The cocktail hour was embellished with matching centerpieces, with a petite yet utterly adorable detail- the couple’s dogs printed on the napkins. 

Although the dinner should have taken place outside, the unfavorable weather conditions forced everyone to sit in the chateau's dining room. Since the place was naturally bright, it was the perfect canvas for this colorful wedding’s portrayal. Apart from the varied centerpieces, we also included a hint of blue through the napkins and tapered candles. 

What I mostly liked about this stunning affair was the creation of the centerpieces. The lovely assortment of blooms in different sizes, shapes, and colors made them an embodiment of Monet’s infamous garden. 

Melissa and Chris' union was an authentic floral grandeur, evoking all kinds of candid emotions.

"Madita's creativity knows no bounds, and her ability to transform a space with her floral designs is truly remarkable."

Madita and her team at Grace & Flowers are nothing short of extraordinary. From the moment we began planning our wedding in Provence, France, Madita's talent and passion for floristry shone through. She effortlessly captured our vision, bringing it to life in ways we could have only dreamed of.

Working with Madita was an absolute pleasure. She took the time to understand every detail of what would make us happy, and her attention to detail was impeccable. For our traditional Jewish wedding ceremony, the Chuppah was of utmost importance, and Madita created a masterpiece. Every flower, every leaf, every detail was carefully chosen and expertly arranged, resulting in a Chuppah that was not only beautiful but truly meaningful to us.

The details of the florals, candles, and linens for our reception dinner table turned the evening into a scene straight out of Vogue. Her work added a touch of magic to our special day, and we are forever grateful for her talent, dedication, and the beauty she brought to our wedding.
If you are looking for a florist who will exceed your expectations and create floral arrangements that are nothing short of breathtaking, look no further than Madita and
Grace & Flowers. We cannot recommend her highly enough.

"From the bouquet to the table arrangements to the chuppah the entire day was made special because we were surrounded by so much beauty."

We had an intimate wedding in Provence- just myself and my husband and our families. I knew even though I was having a small wedding I wanted it to feel as elegant and romantic and stunning as if we had 300 people.

Madita crafted an absolutely breathtaking floral story for our wedding. 
And she's also the kindest, sweetest human being you'll ever meet! Thank you, Madita!

We cannot thank Madita enough for the wonderful florals she provided for our wedding. From the first day we met Madita, it was clear that she understood our vision for our special day, and what we received could not have been more perfect. The attention to detail was obvious in every arrangement, and the communication from day 1 made sure that we had absolutely no worries about what we would see on the day.

Madita created a bridal bouquet for me that touched my heart deeply and brought tears of emotion to my eyes. The magic of the flowery beauty drew me completely under its spell. Every single blossom is so lovingly selected and arranged with the greatest passion and skill. The magic her hands are able to create fascinated me and my creative soul. She managed to translate my imagination and, above all, my feelings for the day into a flower language that was perfect and unique for me. Dearest Madita, I am very grateful for your wonderful traces that you have left in my heart through your flower art and your magical nature. A very special encounter.
