Loire Valley wedding portraits | Abby Grace Photography

Casey first mentioned to me how much she loved Château de Bouthonvilliers last summer in Paris- she was dreaming of getting married in France, swept away in the beauty and charm of this 16th-century domaine. The château & grounds have the ability to make you feel transported back in time, and as soon as we arrived in July, I could absolutely understand why she’d fallen in love so quickly!

Their wedding will instead be taking place in the US, but we still got to see their hopes of French wedding portraits at the château come to life! Seeing Casey’s joy at being there with her fiancé, in a gorgeous gown with florals by Floraison, was so sweet to behold. Her words afterwords are better than anything I could write-

“…the moment I was in my dress, I began getting emotional while thinking that, even though it wasn’t a wedding, my dream was still coming true…All I have ever wanted in life was to be loved the same amount that I love, to feel worthy, to feel pretty, to give my trust to someone, and to have my soulmate for life. Everything I have ever wanted became a reality in that moment…”

Chad & Casey, thank you, thank you for trusting me with these precious portraits. I know how much these mean to you all, and it was such an honor to capture you both in a place so special to you. I hope these bring you joy for years and years to come!!
