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’Audrey…Annie 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!
