Did this Chateau Wedding take place in France or Alabama? You’ll Never Guess!

Brianna Kozlarek / Wednesday March 20, 2019
Be still our hearts! If you’ve always dreamed of a romantic, destination wedding in the most glamorous city in the world (lookin at you Paris) but it’s just not in your budget, today’s wedding is proof that you can make that magic happen in any city, you just have to hunt for the perfect venue! Yep, this stunning chateau wedding took place in Alabama, not the rolling hills of France. Shocked? Us too! It’s elegant, classic and beautifully planned. Scroll for some stunning wedding inspo:
“I captured this stunning editorial in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, but when I posted sneak peeks on my personal Facebook page, ALL of my family asked me if I went to France!” said photographer Laura Anne Watson.  “Frankly, I don’t blame them. Stonewood Farms looks just like a French Chateau, and when I arrived for the editorial, my jaw dropped! The venue is settled high up on a hillside overlooking a lake with grand views (and possibly a grander staircase). Heather Benge Events fused the landscape and architecture with a Spring color palette of blushes, blues, rich pinks and golds. From the Bella Belle shoes to the floral embroidered tablecloth, the details brought to life every bride’s dream of a French wedding…in Alabama. My favorite detail of all was the handcrafted painting of the venue itself!”
