Ajna + Ollie: France wedding, part 1


There is no way in my universe I can spend a week with these beautiful people in the South of France and only share one post of their wedding. There was too much time, love, and preparations to be had that week. I have been waiting on posting this wedding for quite some time now because it felt like for me once I posted it the wedding would be really over. Isn’t that just silly?

I had been talking wedding plans with Ajna for over a year before their actual wedding and I knew it was going to be very spectacular knowing all the work she put into this whole thing living in England and having a wedding in France. I would wake up to these really honest and hilarious 3 page emails from her chatting about what was happening in wedding world and exchanging updates. I just loved it.

Ajna created so many fabulous things for her wedding to include the design of her wedding dress. With a little help from talented friends they pulled this dress together in two days. Two days! The day of she was getting sewn into that baby. She also collected all the plates, cups, flatware, table decor and anything you see on the tables over the past year. So impressed.

The wedding was in Bergerac, Dordogne at a lovely place called Le Leotardie. One of those places you see in magazines and hope to someday visit. It was phenomenal. We stayed there for a week in an old style country French house with Swiss and American house mates.

Friends and family from all over Europe and the states come to celebrate these two. I can see why as they really have something special and will be forever friends of mine.
