We are so excited to announce our rebrand from Pure Expression Events to Pétillante Weddings! Pétillante Weddings is still your go-to wedding planner in France – we specialize in planning beautiful chateau weddings in France.
We started our rebrand in summer 2022 and chose to work with Emily Foster Creative to design custom branding and a custom Showit website.
You can now find us at petillanteweddings.com, and look out for more wedding planning tips and stories here on our blog!
This rebrand came with a couple intentions in mind:
When we started the process with Emily from Emily Foster Creative, we first talked through our brand strategy and had not officially decided on our new brand name. In the past, our business has been under my name – Nicole Tournois, and we were previously Pure Expression Events. After consulting with Emily (and several trusted business colleagues!), we agreed that “Pétillante Weddings” was the perfect combination of French and American culture. You’ll notice that throughout the brand, we find ways to intertwine both cultures, since many of our clients are from English-speaking countries, Nicole is from the United States, and we’re a wedding planning business in, well, France!
Emily helped us choose colors and fonts that represent the mix of elegance, professionalism, creativity, and fun that we bring to each of our weddings. It was so fun to walk through the process of seeing a mood board and see it come to life as our full custom brand!
All of our logo designs and assets were custom-designed for our business. You may notice that the “P” at the beginning of our logo “pours” in to a glass that makes up the “E”. This was an intentional detail to represent the “bubbly” of Pétillante Weddings without coming across as in-your-face weddings.
Why should you choose Pétillante Weddings as your wedding planner?
Just as when we called ourselves Pure Expression Events, we work with couples who want to have FUN while they have the once-in-a-lifetime experience of getting married in France. We support you to plan a wedding that is not only beautiful, but an opportunity to dance the night away through a weekend event at a French chateau. As Pétillante Weddings continues to grow, it is our mission to help you experience the joy, fun, and party that French weddings have to offer.
Most of our weddings are in the Bordeaux area, which is the perfect area to find large French chateaus, quality wines, and yummy local cuisine. We have worked with many vendors so always have quality, trustworthy florists, photographers, venues, caterers, and other businesses to recommend!

We are booking weddings for 2024, so please reach out whether you’ve found your wedding venue or not! Our Wedding Management package is perfect for couples looking for a wedding planner’s support while still handling most of the planning logistics themselves. Our Full Wedding Planning package is best for couples who have yet to choose a venue and want full planning support along the way. We have some stunning French chateaus to recommend. 😉
