Shallon's Provence Wedding


Shallon's Provence Wedding

March 31st, 2022

While studying abroad in Paris, Tuckernuck's Fashion Director, Shallon, fell in love with all things French, from the delectable meals to the charming city surroundings. After exploring several regions of the country, particularly with Provence, she always dreamt of coming back and making more memories with those nearest and dearest to her. Read on to discover how Shallon created the quintessential Provence weekend experience leading up to her black-tie garden wedding.

Upon arrival Thursday evening, Shallon’s in-laws hosted the wedding party guests for an intimate rehearsal dinner at La Mirande in Avignon, the elegant hotel where Shallon and her wedding guests stayed. The property is especially known for its authentic and intimate restaurant on site. Shallon chose a Lela Rose dress, Gianvito Rossi shoes, and Jennifer Behr earrings.

On Friday afternoon, Shallon, Brian and their friends enjoyed a picnic lunch and wine tasting at a Chateau la Nerthe in Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Shallon wore a Zimmerman dress, Tuckernuck earrings, a Lola Hats hat, and a custom straw bag with “Bride” inscribed.

For the big day on Saturday, Shallon chose the 18th-century farmhouse, “Provence Poires,” meaning “The Pear Trees Estate.” Shallon’s was the first wedding the venue hosted, and Shallon made sure no one saw it until the day of, making the event all the more special.

Shallon hosted a pre-wedding luncheon with her bridesmaids from every phase of her life, and gifted each of them custom earrings and flower crowns for the day.

Shallon wore a custom Johanna Ortiz dress with a blush bow (her favorite part!), custom blush Alexandre Birman heels, and an emerald bracelet of her grandmother’s. This was her “something borrowed,” and a piece which her mother also wore on her wedding day.
