We are so excited to be able to share a few more photos of Joseph and Virginie's wedding in France with you!  Instead of rolling out one huge post with all the photos, we thought we'd share a few at a time.  We had hoped to get this one posted a few days ago, but Mother Nature had other plans and threw a crazy storm our way that knocked out the electricity for a little more than entire day.  While we enjoyed the darkness and peace and quiet, it is a bit tough to edit photos with no electricity! At any rate, here we go with some of our favorites of the preparations for the wedding.  We were staying in the lovely Chateau de Villers Le Mahieu which provided a lovely spot with tons of natural light for all the hair and makeup.  As you can tell below, everyone was relaxed and enjoyed themselves with several sweet moments along the way.

We get started with Joseph.  I (Peter) am a huge fan of cuff links, and his were top notch!

And Virginie's dress was stunning - especially hanging in the window of a castle!

We love these next few moments shared between sisters!

If you are leaving a castle in a wedding dress, you really should leave in an entourage of nice cars!

The cathedral where they were married was directly next to a pub where a lively group was evidently celebrating another big occasion.  Once the buses of wedding guests arrived at the church, the party-goers turned their attention towards Virginie and her father and serenaded her with a boisterous rendition of "Here Comes the Bride!"  It made for quite a scene and this is quite honestly one of my favorite images of the wedding day!

Be sure to check back soon to see our favorite images of the ceremony.  We can't wait to share the rest!!
