Less than a month after hosting "the most low-key royal wedding," Princess Grace of Monaco's granddaughter Charlotte Casiraghi and husband Dimitri Rassam are continuing their wedding celebrations in France.
On Saturday, the couple held a religious service and private reception in Provence, People reports. Charlotte's mom, Princess Caroline of Hanover, and uncle, Prince Albert II of Monaco, were there to celebrate the big day, as were her brothers Andreas and Pierre, and her sister, Alexandre de Hanover.
The religious portion of the event took place at Abbaye Sainte-Marie de Pierredon outside St. Remy de Provence, and the site of the reception was a surprise to the guests (and still has not been revealed to the public). Casigrahi has a soft spot in her heart for Provence, as her mother brought she and her siblings to live there shortly after their father died when they were children. “It is this particular love of Provence she wants to share with her family and friends,“ a source told People. To share the spirit of Provence with their guests, the couple gifted them with "small fragrant wands of lavender" crafted by a local outlet.
The bride wore a stunning couture gown by designer Giambattista Valli, featuring a sheer neckline with lace detailing and cascading layers of tulle. She paired the dress with a crown and veil. Rassam was the picture-perfect summer groom in a cream suit with a grey vest, blue shirt, and yellow tie.
The couple wed for the first time in Monaco earlier this month.The ceremony took place within the Palace's State Apartments, where Casirghi wore a grey Yves Saint Laurent dress reminiscent of the one that Princess Grace wore to her and Prince Rainier's civil ceremony in 1956. Then, they celebrated with a 300-person picnic at the Palace's terraced gardens. Later in the evening, they hosted a reception with dinner and dancing at the Monte Carlo Beach Hotel, where Casiraghi changed into a white strapless Chanel gown. The couple got engaged during a family ski trip in 2018, and share a six-month-old son, Balthazar.
