Welcome to my journal where I’ll share stunning weddings of even more beautiful couples, endless travel adventures and sweet anecdotes about living with the love of my life. Pour yourself a glass of Prosecco and stay awhile. 

Hi, I'm francesca.


Traveling to beautiful far off places might be out of the question right now, but European inspired wedding venues may be closer than you think. 

I’ve rounded up a handful of stunning castles, jaw dropping chateaus and chic mansions for you to explore while beginning your venue search! These European inspired wedding venues hold a certain elevated flair for you and your guests on your wedding day. They have the power to transport you to the rolling hills of Tuscany or a champagne toast in Champagne! And the best part is, you can save your airline miles for your Honeymoon! 

I’m thrilled to share 6 different European styled wedding venues in today’s post all across the New England region and I am seriously swooning over an opportunity to photograph at one of these gorgeous locations. However, since that hasn’t happened yet, I’ve credited the appropriate photographer under each photograph. Please note that I do not own any of these photos and they should be used as inspiration for wedding venue research only. 

Happy viewing!!
