We had the honor of celebrating our friends Elodie and Gaël this past weekend. They celebrated their love and union with a beautiful outdoor ceremony (where Hugo played “Is This Love? on a ukulele!), a lovely “vin d’honneur” (champagne cocktail), a delicious Brittany-themed dinner and an all-night dance party!
It was a wonderful celebration and we loved every moment! We are such romantics and we love celebrating LOVE. Weddings are our place. We always get teared up when the bride and groom exchange their vows. 🙂 So sweet. This wedding was particularly tender as the couple is so darling – they are huge romantics too and everything about their wedding was sweet and personal.
We were touched because the wedding was full of personal touches – homemade décorations and memory-making activities such as romantic postcards to fill out as keepsakes for the newlyweds.
It was such as pleasure to be present at this wedding in Brittany with our lovely friends!
If you are planning a trip to Brittany, there are some foodie treats that you absolutely MUST try :
- Galette complète (the traditional French galette from Brittany : filled with ham and cheese and topped with an egg).
- Galette saucisse (their version of a hot dog – a delicious sausage rolled up in a galette). Check out our buckwheat galette recipe to make your own.
- Kouign-Amann (pronounced kwinaman).
The Kouign-Amann we had the pleasure of eating :
What is a Kouign-Amann? It is a flaky, buttery, pastry that it typically “Bretonne” (from the Brittany region of France).
The couple’s personal wedding touches :
Homemade mini jam with darling, handmade labels reading “WITH LOVE”. (Awww.)
Gorgeous postcards to write a sweet message to the happy couple. This is the one we chose :
And… the sweetest “newlyweds” car :
