If you’re looking for something a little extra dreamy today, you’re in luck because Maya and Lénaïc’s Provence wedding is downright swoon-worthy!
Planned long distance and with a budget of just over $5,000, Maya and Lénaïc’s intimate wedding (they’re both professional photographers) was held at Beaumes de Venise City Hall. After the ceremony, guests were treated to an intimate, cocktail reception that included a game of Pétanque (similar to Bocce), and a candlelit alfresco feast, all set in the picturesque French countryside of Provence.
We don’t know about you, but we don’t think it gets much dreamier than that!
