Maria & Shaun's Couture Destination Wedding in France
Maria and Shaun’s stunning destination wedding in the South of France would be a fitting culmination to their equally dramatic courtship. A chance encounter during a study abroad program in Paris, Shaun by way of New York and Maria by way of Milan, began a friendship in the most romantic city on the planet, which blossomed into love and a long distance romance spanning two continents.
France would become the centerpiece of their international love story, setting the stage not only for their first meeting but Shaun's eventual marriage proposal. Nestled in the quiet fishing village of Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, the couple chose Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild as the backdrop for their gorgeous wedding ceremony, a breathtaking seaside villa with sprawling gardens and fountains built in 1905.
The weekend was kicked off with a stylish welcome reception at La Voile d’Or, a chic boutique hotel overlooking the luxurious yachts and sailboats dotting the azur waters. From a stroll through the medieval cobblestone walkways of the charming hilltop village Eze, Maria and Shaun couldn’t resist a jaunt along the rugged coastline on a Vespa, with gorgeous views between the cypress trees and limestone cliffs. Maria and Shaun also seized an opportunity to celebrate their love of Italian fashion, donning looks by Roberto Cavalli and Prada.
The five day solo shoot also spanned two continents, from New York to the South of France, and was another intense production in a series with only a single shooter. A thanks to the team of professionals who helped put together this stunning event!
