The White Paradise
The snow sparkling in the rays of spring … the view on the white mountains ... our arrival in Villars confirmed us that day would be perfect for a winter wedding.
The Catholic Church ceremony was touching as the love flooded the small chapel of the hilltop village. The smooth and powerful voice of the singer took us to the surrounding peaks, at the height of our emotions.
At the exit, the white rose petals whirled around the happiness of Elodie and Romain, whose smile, contagious, illuminated the small steep path.
The cocktail could take place on the terrace. Between sheep skins, logs, dried meat and champagne, the atmosphere was festive.
At 7pm, the small group went to a surprised destination. Everybody only knew they had to wear shoes for the snow! The bride replaced her beautiful pumps with black Moon boots!
Everyone climbed into a train without knowing the place of final destination! The atmosphere was electric and lively during the journey of 10 minutes, while the wagons plying the snowy valleys.
On arrival, a large snowmobile was waiting for the bride and groom and a path with torches was waiting for the guests to go to the restaurant. The night was clear, we could see the stars, and there was a magical atmosphere, while the congregation walked 1,600 meters towards the site of the festivities.
Minutes later, the couple welcomed their friends and family at the ice bar, a glass of hot wine in hand, while a sweet music animated this pleasant moment. And there, beneath the moon and stars, all took a drink, lying on the lounge chairs, admiring the incredible view from this place lost in the mountains... in this white paradise ...
When the cold was too much for the jackets and UGGs of everybody, it was time to go into the restaurant, to go in the locker room to change shoes and discover the sledge's seating plan and tables decoration.
At the candlelight and the sound of the DJ, the party continued late into the night. Two trains were provided for the guests to go back to reality.
Far away from this white paradise…
