Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild Elopement Wedding

With its Mediterranean sea and its mountains, you could say that the French Riviera has it all. Imagine professing your love surrounded by such beauty and tranquility. This couple chose the Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild to set the scene of their nuptials, with its rose-colored house and sprawling gardens. The villa is surrounded by nine gardens, each with its owns influence, providing different pops of color where ever you go.

The bride wore a stunning Oscar de la Renta gown paired with a pair of Bella Belle shoes, which helped to create a stunning ethereal vision of beauty. Complete With her parasol to shade her from the Mediterranean heat, she really did look elegant like the lady of the villa.

Andrew and Leah decided to have a non-traditional, very small elopement wedding. They had only seven close family members as guests and Leah’s uncle officiated the ceremony.

Their Love Story

Our gorgeous couple met in a summer program before they started college in Chicago and have been together ever since.  Leah grew up in Florida and Andrew is originally from California, yet somehow they met in the middle! They spent the formative years of their adulthood with one another and on their seven-year anniversary, Andrew proposed.

What was the inspiration behind planning your wedding?

Andrew proposed in Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat back in 2016 after we graduated from college. We took our engagement photos at Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild and it was our dream to return for our wedding. The Villa’s overall aesthetic served as the inspiration for the colors, flowers, and other design elements for the ceremony.

Was there a special part of the wedding day that stood apart from the rest?

“A special part of our wedding day was our celebratory champagne break after the ceremony. To escape the heat of the French Riviera’s August day, we went to the Le Salon de Thé to cool down and have a toast overlooking our favorite view of the Villefranche bay. We will always remember the touching words spoken by our loved ones during this time. ”

What advice would you give to brides and grooms that are planning their destination wedding?

“It takes time! Be prepared to wait several days in between email correspondence and don’t be afraid to follow-up. I found that the hardest part was picking vendors, but the internet and social media were very helpful. If you have the wiggle room in your budget, consider hiring a local wedding planner who can handle things on the ground.”
