This beautiful photoshoot took place at the Château De Varennes in southeast France. "Our bride and groom met at a secret black tie masquerade ball in Burgundy. They saw each other from across the room and were instantly drawn to one another," says photographer, Stephanie Brauer. "They spent the rest of the evening together and decided then and there to elope. They snuck away to a nearby abandoned chateau and tied the knot, just the two of them. The next day they sent word to a few of their closest friends to join them in an intimate celebration. I took these photographs on Fujifilm 400h at the Sylvie Gil Workshop," she says.
