Chanel Dror, the executive producer of the lifestyle blog Camille Styles, and Eric Tarlo, the director of sales at software startup SpaceCraft, have known each other since childhood. “He was friends with my older sister,” remembers Chanel, “and though we always knew that the other existed, I don’t think we spoke one word to each other growing up.” For Chanel’s 21st birthday, she planned a pirate-theme barge party on Texas’s Lake Austin, where she’s from. “My sister arrived with four or five friends in tow, Eric being one of them,” she says. “He brought me a giant hot pink velvet sombrero as a birthday gift—which we still have in our home—and then a few days later, he called to ask me out.”
The two had been dating for six and a half years when Eric proposed. “To say that our families had grown impatient would be an understatement,” admits Chanel. The couple was enjoying a quiet Friday night at home when it finally happened. “There had been a few curious moments leading up to the evening, like fresh flowers mysteriously appearing on the counter while we were at work, and Eric not wanting anyone to come over for dinner that night, which is unlike him. But by 10:30 p.m., nothing out of the ordinary had happened, so I let go of any suspicions,” says Chanel. “Soon after, Eric took our dog out, and when they came back upstairs, sweet Coco was wearing a ring around her neck on a string.”
Even though their families had been chomping at the bit for an engagement, Chanel really hadn’t given much thought to her actual wedding prior to Eric’s popping the question. “For the first month after the proposal, I bounced around from one idea to another, clueless about what I wanted,” she says. She was familiar with Château du Grand-Lucé, which is located in France’s Loire Valley, because she’d profiled the designer and owner of the property, Timothy Corrigan, for CamilleStyles.com. “One morning, a few weeks into our engagement, I woke up with the château mysteriously top of mind,” explains Chanel. “I emailed my contact there that very same day, and a few weeks later, it was booked!”
The wedding’s aesthetic was largely inspired by the venue—classic, romantic, neutral—and the time of year helped rule out the use of any bright, summery elements. Chanel enlisted Marie-Emilie Méjan and her team at Mon Plus Beau Jour to take the helm of the planning process. “Given the time difference, the language barrier, and the considerably short engagement, I think it’s safe to say that planning the wedding would have been absolutely impossible without her,” says Chanel.
Choosing her wedding day look was Chanel’s favorite part of the planning process. “While I took an aesthetic cue from the venue, I also stayed true to my own style,” she says. “I thought I wanted one dress, but when we zeroed in on the location, it became clear that it wasn’t the right fit. When I landed on this design by Amir Taghi, I first sent it to my sister to get her seal of approval, then with her consent, I knew it was the one.” Chanel’s real-life style tendencies shined through during this process as well. “I’m obsessed with shoes, so naturally, that was the first purchase I made—even before finding my dress!”
The weekend started with a picnic on Saturday followed by a cocktail party later that evening. The decor was kept simple for the ceremony on Sunday so that guests could fully appreciate the stunning scenery at the chateau. Two urns filled with hydrangeas were situated at the end of the aisle; there were rows of white chairs; and for the chuppah—instead of a large structure that would have obstructed the view, the couple wed under Chanel’s late grandfather’s tallith. “For late September in the Loire Valley, the only way to describe the weather is ‘plain lucky,’ or as I’m convinced, ‘divine intervention,’ ” says Chanel. “There wasn’t a cloud in the sky, and the temperature was damn near perfect in the high 70s.”
Chanel’s brother-in-law played The Beatles’s “Something” on guitar during the procession, which consisted of the bride and groom’s families. “I’ll never forget walking down the aisle—the view, the music, the crisp air, our guests’ faces, and Eric waiting for me. I was overcome with emotion,” remembers Chanel. “I wish I could have bottled this moment to relive its magic every day.”
Eric’s sister, Eve, made opening remarks, then the rabbi took over. At one point, family members were called up to read blessings. “I realized in that moment that I’d completely forgotten to give them a heads-up!” laughs Chanel. “Our Israeli family had no problem stepping up to read on the fly, but we completely sabotaged a few people who couldn’t read Hebrew at all. Watching them struggle on the spot ended up being hilarious and had us all in stitches, and it’s a moment that people are still talking about.”
Guests showered the newlyweds with rice as Father John Misty’s “Real Love Baby” played during the recessional. “My heart still melts every time I hear that song,” says Chanel.
After the ceremony came cocktail hour, and after that, a seated dinner at a long, 92-person table. Once they found their places, guests actually broke out into “the wave,” which ran up and down the length of the table three or four times. After they’d settled down, everyone then enjoyed an eggplant salad appetizer, then a choice of chicken or fish with roasted vegetables for the main course. “It was all paired with lots of wine, of course, though the French waitstaff was shocked at how much liquor our group consumed!” says the bride. “During dinner each of my parents took turns giving a toast, then Eric and I made a speech thanking our guests.”
Post dinner, everyone moved into the orangery—where a dessert and cheese spread was waiting—for the reception. “In lieu of a wedding cake, we kicked things off with a tower of Le Grand Courtâge Brut Rosé, with Sam Feldt’s ‘Show Me Love’ playing on blast,” says Chanel.
For the first dance, the bride’s friend Katherine sang “Make You Feel My Love” while her friend Matt accompanied on guitar. “The three of us were in a college a cappella group together, and I swear I could listen to Katherine’s rendition of the song on repeat forever,” says Chanel. She and Eric took dance lessons before the wedding and learned some simple choreography, but after a few too many glasses of wine during the two-hour dinner, she was in no state to perform. “I completely bombed! I can still hear Eric’s voice in my ear, saying, ‘What are you doing?’ as I fumbled through the steps,” she jokes. “Oh well!”
The couple made the night feel like home with a few details that got everyone fired up: “Tito’s vodka as a nod to Austin, plus tons of H-Town rap, and ‘Houston’ snapbacks to tribute our hometown,” says Chanel. “We did the hora, and then there were hours of dancing. For a late-night snack, we served sweet and savory crepes that I’m still dreaming about.”
The party kept going strong until 4:30 a.m. “We could have kept dancing all night,” says Chanel, “but after a week of revelry, it was time to call it.” One day later, the newlyweds jetted off to Minorca and Barcelona for their honeymoon. “I swear I could have curled up by the Hotel Torralbenc pool for six months straight.”
