Big weddings aren’t for everyone—thank goodness, because if they were, we wouldn’t have this beautiful couple’s romantic Parisian elopement. And despite this small size, this wedding has everything it needs: love, family (the couple’s daughter and flowergirl insisted on flowers in her favorite shade of pink) and stunning photos from Le Secret d’Audrey. See them all here.
From The Bride…Late one night, somewhere between trying to minimize our ever growing guest list, seating arrangements and choosing the perfect colour scheme, I had a light bulb moment! Why don’t we elope? He loved the idea, I loved the idea and both of our families were extremely supportive and knew that this would be perfect for us. Together with our 2 beautiful children, we wanted to make this special occasion an intimate and heartfelt one, dedicating our lives to one another without any added pressures. Walking down the aisle with the 2 most important human beings in our lives, I cannot begin to explain how special this moment was.
I wouldn’t quite say that I am a perfectionist, but I certainly do dedicate a lot of energy into the finer details. I wanted our wedding to be timeless and elegant with a hint of personality on the side. I had a lot of fun collecting fresh flowers from a local flower shop and styling the mantle in our apartment with my wedding details. My daughter loves the colour pink and her only request was that we had pink flowers, so I couldn’t resist a few pink peonies!
Why Paris? Why not?! It is the City of Love after all. With its intricate beauty and romantic backdrop, I couldn’t think of a more perfect location to say “I do.” Planning an elopement in Paris is easy, especially if you have the gorgeous and vibrant Yanique from Elope in Paris on your team! She took care of every fine detail, from locations to makeup and everything in between, she was an absolute pleasure to work with!
For Chris and I, finding the perfect photographer to capture our special day was imperative. As our family and friends weren’t there with us on this joyous occasion we wanted to be able to relive the day with them through still lives. When I came across the most stunning images I had ever seen on an Instagram page (@audreyparisphoto) I knew that we had found the one!
With Audrey’s eye for detail and knowledge of Paris, she captured our day exactly how we had imagined! Now I have the most amazing photographs of my very own fairytale wedding.
