The olive trees dotting the French countryside inspired the theme for a stylish wedding reception

Past rolling fields of grapes and olive trees, perched atop the vertical village of La Roque sur Pernes in Provence, you'll find Chateau La Roque, the idyllic site chosen for the small family wedding we imagined for an American bride and a French groom. An empty moat attests to the chateau's origins as a fortress in the 11th century. Now a meticulously restored five-room hotel, La Roque's stone walls and terraced grounds lent a backdrop exuding charm gleaned from centuries of history.
