When designing and planning your dream destination wedding, it’s important to have a clear vision and style for your big day. Thankfully, blogs like ours can offer inspiring photo shoots which were designed and executed by some of the industry’s best vendors. In this shoot titled French Romance, the talented group who participated got inspiration from the coordinator’s ancestry. 

Samantha Pereira with Memory Making Events traces her origins to France and the majority of her family still lives there. The idea was to recreate a vintage, yet modern setting. The group achieved inspirational details which speak to the French, chic lifestyle. By combining colors like teal, orange, magenta, rose pink, pale yellow and ivory, the reception set-up lent itself perfectly to a garden setting at Heritage Estates in Arroyo Grande, California.
