Chateau de Villette

I fell in love with Chateau de Villette the moment I saw it. This historic home is only 35 minutes from Paris and has all of the splendor of the French manors that this country is known for. The chateau offers 6 rooms for 12 guests total onsite, which means your wedding day here can be super intimate! Chateau de Villete has gorgeous indoor and outdoor options, including a fountain, gardens, and stunning interiors to be used as a backdrop for your wedding day. No matter where you choose to host your wedding day, you won’t find a more elegant option! 

Chateau de Courtomer 

Located near some of the dreamiest countryside of Normandy, Chateau de Courtomer is a beautiful and intimate option for your French wedding day. This French wedding venue perfectly blends the elegance of days gone by with the needs of the 21st century. Chateau de Courtomer is a stunning stone building in the fields lending itself to both luxurious affairs – and those with a more bohemian vibe. The staff here is bilingual, which also makes planning a breeze! Definitely worth a look if a countryside wedding is more your style! 

Shangri la Paris

Dreaming of a Parisian wedding? Consider the incredible Shangri la Paris overlooking the Eiffel Tower and River Seine! It will give you the luxury you’re looking for with the landmarks we all love in Paris. Shangri la Paris is a truly central location in the city of lights for your wedding day – full of the grandeur and luxury you could dream of for your wedding! This is definitely one of the best wedding venues in France (and Paris, too!).

Ritz Paris

Whether you’re planning an intimate celebration or large party, the Ritz Paris has the perfect space for you! In the heart of Paris, this incredible hotel is arguably one of the most famous locations in the city. Both Coco Chanel and Ernest Hemingway lived here!! The Ritz Paris brings the grandeur of the city to you. Decorated to honor French history, there’s stunning gardens outdoors and wonderful options indoors for your reception. It’s a great place to kickstart your honeymoon, too!  

Chateau Challain

Fairy tales really do come true in France! Situated in the Loire valley, Chateau Challain is one of the most romantic French wedding venues you could ask for! Chateau Challain is a unique gothic château, complete with towers and impeccable grounds. Whether you’re dreaming of a big fairy tale day or a more intimate elopement, bring your guests somewhere they’ll never forget! 

Yachts de Paris

Speaking of an experience your guests will never forget, consider getting married right on the river in Paris! Yachts de Paris has 8 boats in their fleet, offering options for intimate weddings or those for celebrations with many (many!) guests. Imagine sailing down the river with the lights of Paris glowing around you. How romantic would that be? 

As you can see, there’s so many incredible options around France for your wedding day.
