“I have always dreamt of getting married to a prince on a white horse, and having a grand celebration at the castle, drowning in a sea of flowers” with these words charming Alena began her story about a wedding of her dreams. Soon the wish list was completed with the Cote d’Azur, the Banderos band, the strict Black Tie dress code for guests and many other details pleasing to the heart of the bride.

Selection of the venue
Literally restored from ruins, and now a luxurious private residence, snow white chateau Saint Jeannet just a 10 minute drive away from Nice, became Alena’s and Alexander’s dream wedding location for the next three days. Any princess would envy such venue. The castle offered stunning views on the picturesque surroundings of Cote d’Azur and enchanting seascapes.

The Bride’s and Groom’s Morning
On their wedding day Alena and Alexander have agreed to see each other only near the altar therefore, their morning was spent separately in a company of their friends. The groom organized a festive swim in an outdoor pool, and for the bride and her 11 dazzling bridesmaids in lavender robes, we arranged an aristocratic breakfast with Prosecco on the terrace.
During our introductory trip to Nice, our team together with the bride and the owner of the castle, went on walks through the numerous gardens of the chateau, when Alena suddenly stopped in a shady alley of mulberry trees and exclaimed “Here! The wedding ceremony will be held in this exact place…guests in tuxedos and evening dresses will sit on garden benches, Sasha will be waiting for me near the arbor, covered with white roses and hydrangeas, and I will walk down these stone stairs held by my dear childhood friend”. The word of the bride is law! Everything happened exactly as she planned. The bride’s impeccable plan was completed by a piano and live vocalists during the welcome party. We discovered the vocalist by accident, during our evening walk along the Promenade des Anglais our attention was caught by his amazing voice.

The wedding dinner
During the day, we transformed the castle’s helipad into a snow-white banquet space, a cozy hookah room, lounge area, and a spacious stage … so many bright performances were expected at dinner! The mirrored table surfaces reflected the clear sky of the Cote d’Azur, the crystal of the chandelier glittered in the sun, and the exquisite table set up hinted at an exciting gastronomic journey that awaited the guests at the wedding in France.
During this day there were a lot of surprises planned for the newlyweds, that we had secretly organized together with the guests: the spectacular appearance of a Ferrari, remakes of musical hits from friends, video broadcast of congratulations from Moscow.
