French destination wedding with a Chinese Ceremony


In between pine trees and fields of sunflowers as far as the eye can see you could easily miss the turn off to La Moulinasse. In this part of Southern France near Carcassonne the landscape is very typical. Once you turn in towards the house however and red shutters and white brickwork peek through the greenery it’s like you’ve entered a whole different world.

There’s golden sunlight streaming through the trees, lush summery flowers in the most beautiful shades covering the beautifully set table and in between it all Tricia and Josh, beaming smiles, surrounded by their loved ones.

Tricia and Josh live in New York and with their families in California and Hong Kong as well as friends from all over the world it made perfect sense to gather everyone in the South of France. Tricia’s aunt runs La Moulinasse and it was the perfect place to host this wedding. The late September weather was kind to us and after a traditional Chinese tea ceremony in the morning everyone moved on to an outside ceremony in the garden with Jewish elements, Martinis under knobbly olive trees and an alfresco dinner in the old barn. It was wonderful to see these two families together, celebrating from morning until evening and Marco and I could not have felt more welcome by everyone. Thank you so much for letting us be a part of it all!

Two days later we met up again with Tricia and Josh for a portrait shoot in the old city of Carcassonne, check back next week for those pictures.
