Your first time in Paris is something you’ll never forget, and for Annie and Robin, they’ll remember more than just the city’s magic — they’ll remember their wedding day. After all, what could be better than seeing the world’s most romantic city than seeing the world’s most romantic city on the most romantic day of your life. And thanks to Le Secret d’Audrey and MgImage, we can see it all too in The Vault!

From Le Secret d’AudreyAnnie and Robin contacted me as soon as they got engaged as Annie dreamed of Paris for her wedding. She never visited Europe so it was a full adventure! We were lucky to have the sunniest day for us and after the ceremony I took the couple in my favorite locations in Paris for some timeless couple photos.

Her dress was stunning and Annie was the most elegant bride. With the beautiful architecture of the ShangriLa hotel we sneaked into the lobby before the ceremony and shot some Classic photo of her. She was all smile and excited to meet Robin to start a new Chapter of their life.

For months we were exchanging about her wedding, I gave her all my inputs about Paris, my recommendations and preferred vendors so it is always emotional even for me to see the day unfolding like you imagined.

From The Bride…We met at our previous job a little more than 6 years ago. We were working in different departments and by chance he had a project that required him to work in my area. We then realized we lived 20 minutes away from each other so we started carpooling to work together. We started off as friends for a while, then I noticed he started acting unusual and different around me. I just wanted to be friends at first but he was very persistent. He would do something sweet for me every single day. Even when I initially turned him down, he was persistent for almost a full year! He is super funny with an incredible sense of humor. He is very witty and super smart. We started sharing stories about our childhood/upbringing and we realized we had a lot in common. I soon realized that he is a sweet, caring, generous and loving person and I found myself falling for him too.

We decided to get married in Paris because we both think it is the most romantic city in the world. Everything about Paris is romantic! The language, the art, the architecture… breathtaking! So that’s why we chose Paris because we thought it would be a great place to get married and a wonderful back drop for photos. To be honest, when we were indecisive about the location, seeing Audrey’s photography really inspired me and helped us finalize the decision. 

My dress is designed by Hayley Paige and I loved the playful yet romantic soft layers created by the horsehair tulle on the dress.

My bouquet was inspired by multiple photos on Pinterest. I didn’t want cliche red roses. Since my wedding is during spring time, I wanted soft spring colors!

April Showers Bring (Parisian) May Flowers

Even on the wettest gray day, Paris still manages to take our breath away. Take this elegant inspiration captured by Lara Lam Photography as proof. Drenched in elegance and irresistible Seniman Calligraphy, we’ve got every minute of magic waiting for you in The Vault!


From Luxe Paris EventsWe all know what they say about Spring time in Paris…What few know is how unpredictable the weather can be. Maybe it is bright and sunny or perhaps grey and gloomy but Paris is in fact always a good idea. When planning a Paris wedding or elopement in the early months of spring make sure you bring along an umbrella. While its practical it also provides a chic vintage inspired accessory that you might just actually need. This shoot was all about sharing the experience of an elopement in Paris with your “better half;” from getting ready through the photo tour after your ceremony and taking a stroll through the city while dressed to your wedding day “nines.” No first looks, no planned photos just capturing your love but with the unmistakable style that is the city of love behind it all. This city is an explosion of history, beauty and above all else details…a simple lamp post, an old cathedral or a sculpture where you least expect it.

This Inspiration Shoot Proves Paris is Always a Good Idea — Even in the Winter

As far as I’m concerned, winter is the worst. But through the lens of Catherine O’Hara and with a little help from my soulmate city, Paris, this inspiration session is making winter seem not only bearable, but also completely beautiful. Thanks to two gorgeous wedding dresses, stunning florals and details designed by Avec Weddings and Events, The Vault is full of everything you need to make your day a little prettier!


From Avec Weddings and EventsThe Paris sky in winter has a romantic soft grey hue. Set against the dusty blue rooftops and ivory building façades, this hue adds to the natural beauty and sophistication that comes with having a winter wedding in Paris.

This was the inspiration. To bring out the beauty of an intimate Paris winter elopement through warm candlelight, elegant florals and sophisticated design. To get a glimpse of a couple enjoying a romantic stroll in a jardin or locked in a private embrace in a cozy Haussmannian apartment. We chose to incorporate shades of Paris in winter; soft grey, dusty blue, pale ivory and blush pink.

The delicate lace wedding invitation suite provided by Ever After Press perfectly embraced the theme of the shoot. “Je t’aime, je t’adore, j’aime que la vie est belle, ton coeur est a moi, mon coeur est a toi” meaning “I love you, I adore you, I love that life is beautiful, your heart is mine, my heart is yours”.

The gorgeous wedding cake by the one and only Bertie’s CupCakery captured essence of a winter wedding in Paris. The incorporation of the lace detailing on the cake to the invitation suite is in a word exquisite. It truly was the star of the show.

For the table décor, hard marble plates were mixed with warm rose gold flatware and pale pink silk ribbon to add dimension to the design; a combination of hard and soft materials, cool and warm tones. The etched design swirl in the wine and champagne glasses adds a bit of whimsy to remind us that we are grabbing inspiration from the cool winter wind.

Let’s talk about the breathtaking blush wedding gowns from Zahavit Tshuba. Billowing trains of tulle, soft beading detail, jaw dropping pearl detail on the back of one of the dresses… need I go on? They were the perfect combination of sensual romance meets classical sophistication. Romantic, refined hair styling and soft, natural make up by Honorine Makeup Studios highlighted the grace in the inspiration.

The elegant floral design by Floraison made this shoot come to life. Loose florals of ranunculus, poppy, eucalyptus and jasmine creeping softly down the side of the fireplace with soft candle light beside creates a lovely wedding ceremony backdrop and is enough to make you melt. The bouquets of ranunculus, poppy, eucalyptus, jasmine and Christmas roses wrapped in flowing silk ribbons were absolutely swoon worthy.

All of this was beautifully captured by Catherine O’Hara Photography, who’s soft romantic style lent itself perfectly to this Paris Winter Shoot.
