St. Jean Cap Ferrat, is very close to Monaco and Nice in the South of France on the most heavenly body of water, the Mediterranean Sea. I had the pleasure of shooting with Susan Stripling there in June of this year.
The day could not have been more perfect! The weather was a balmy 74 degrees. It was warm in the sun and cool and breezy in the shade. It was a day ordered up from heaven!
The home where the bride got ready over looked the bay and rumor has it that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have a home just down the hill from here. I went up to the widows peak and peered into folks' back yards hoping to catch a glimpse of the hollywood couple to no avail but the view was stunning!!
The ceremony was at Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild and the reception was won a platform built especially for the event covering the sands of the bay.
We finished shooting for the night at 2 am and agreed to meet at 7 am for a sunrise trash the dress session. What?! We got back to our hotel room and decided is we tried to sleep we might not wake in time so we just stayed up!!
The quiet stillness of that area at 7 am was the epitome of tranquility! I could have lived the rest of my life in that very spot!
