Luxurious Parisian Wedding Inspiration

I struggled to narrow down the adjectives to describe this shoot; it’s glam, yet elegant, ethereal yet simply romantic and inviting. Either way, it’s what we call a winner. Captured at The Belle Arte Workshop hosted by event planner Cynthia Martyn Events in Paris by Katie Stoops,  these pics have us wishing upon our lucky stars for an invite (from Seniman Calligraphy, The Wise Creative or Written Word Calligraphy perhaps?) to a French fete as fabulous as this. Just a little forewarning though: the rest of your Friday will be spent in our Vault right here.

From Katie Stoops Photography… This is a styled shoot that came out of The Belle Arte Workshop. The Belle Arte Workshop is a luxury immersive educational retreat for professional wedding planners, stylists, photographers and related creatives. The workshop is a curated and collaborative experience focused on the world of fine art weddings. The first edition was hosted in Paris, France during November 2015 and plans for a second installment are underway for Fall 2016.

French Garden Elopement Inspiration in Giverny

Just when I thought my uhb-session with all things french was manageable, this shoot comes along. A shoot filled with soft blues, warm peach hues, seasonal ModFete florals, and the ultimate elopement, but better yet? It all took place at the ideal cottage in Monet’s (yes THE MONET!) quaint town Giverny and I’m convinced I need to move there tout de suite. Kibogo Photography captured it all and we can relish it together in THE VAULT!

From Katelyn of ModFeteWe wanted this shoot to embody the rustic elegance that we found in the historic cottage garden where this took place. I was inspired by soft French blues and the warm peach tones in seasonal fruit and flowers. The table linens, foraged floral and silk ribbon I used were a complement to the organic nature of our surroundings, while the tableware, wardrobe and calligraphy gave a nod to Parisian sophistication. The cottage in Monet’s home town Giverny provided a beautiful backdrop for the table which we envisioned to be the perfect setting for an intimate garden celebration.

Elegant Paris Elopement

I love love loved my wedding, but if we were able to do another one? We’d jet off to somewhere fabulous and do something like these two here. Thanks to Celebrant in Paris, they said their vows before just one another and then took a walking tour of Paris with Le Secret D’Audrey capturing every romantic moment. How can you not absolutely love them? Get inspired in our VAULT right this way!

From Le Secret D’Audrey… Ella and Jordan chose Paris to say “I do” on the Bridge Alexandre III overlooking the Eiffel Tower. What a lovely day it was. They got ready together in a picturesque French apartment, shared a macaron cake and wandered the streets of Paris for couple photos in the City of Love.

From the Bride and Groom… Although we went to different universities, we both grew up in the Bay Area. We were fortunately brought together by mutual friends. We have been to 15+ weddings in the last two years and have had enough of traditional ceremonies and banquets. When Ella came across Audrey’s photos, she fell in love with her work. She pointed to one of her pictures, that this is exactly what she wanted; an elopement for us. Planning the elopement was stressful finding vendors in another country initially, but with the help of internet, we were able to find all the makeup, hair, and cinematographers that fit our elopement imagination.
