Studio Artifice joined the happy bride and groom for their ultra-glamorous wedding at Chateau Diter, a gorgeous venue set against a lush, green backdrop. From the very start of the day, this wedding was nothing short of picture-perfect. The bride got ready surrounded by her closest friends, tons of fresh flowers, and bubbling flutes of champagne. Once she was ready to go, she slipped into a figure-hugging lace wedding dress, the ideal complement to the ornate venue. Her groom wore his formal best, too: A sleek, fitted tuxedo.

They weren't the only people at the wedding who wowed. The bridesmaids each wore blush gowns and carried delicate posies of white blooms. And the couple's flower girls? Well, they were about as sweet as can be in their little white dresses. Flower crowns were a beautiful finishing touch.
Guests gathered for cocktail hour on a nearby lawn where they were treated to drinks and amazing views. Then, everyone returned to the chateau for a formal reception, complete with tons of flickering candlelight and knockout centerpieces that nearly touched the ceiling. But that wasn't the only surprise of the night—the bride traded in her wedding dress for a sophisticated red lace gown with a high neckline and long sleeves. Then the party really got started, and guests spent the night on the dance floor or posing in the photo booth.
