Stylish, Intimate Wedding in Paris

I’m going to go right out and say it, this wedding is my dream. Intimate, beyond stylish, filled with romance and oh, did I mention it was in Paris? Because that is just the icing on this very pretty cake. Beautifully captured by Skiss Agence Photo Paris and planned by Wedding Paris, this wedding will dance around in my dreams for days.

From The Bride…Opting for a small intimate wedding in Paris, our favorite city in the world, was the best decision we’ve ever made. We were able to turn what is typically a 1 day affair into a week full of lasting memories for us and our families. From having the girls makeup done at our loft in Saint Germain, to taking pictures with our families at the Eiffel Tower, and ending with romantic shots in Montmartre, it was surreal.

Everything from the minute we arrived to the breathtaking venue until we left with our glasses full of champagne was magical and memorable. To give our full attention to each other and our 8 family members was more enjoyable than any large wedding could have ever been. To be able to share this with those that mean the most to us and the amazing city of Paris is something we will be forever grateful for.

From Agathe at Wedding ParisI always knew Stacy would be a special bride. She wasn’t classical and had her own style that she wanted to show in her wedding. That is why we thought about touches of black (ideal for a winter wedding) and anemones and went to the streets and art galleries of Montmartre for the shooting!

We loved to be able to put a black lace table runner that contrasted with the classical and gorgeous style of the venue. The crystal chandeliers with gold candles reflected all the mercury votives lights and gave the room an enchanted atmosphere. Even after having put all the decorations, when we opened the room door, we were stunned by all these elements that combined so well.

Romantic Beach Shoot in the South Of France

Every little thing about this shoot is a dream to me. Honestly, if I could bottle all the details styled by Sandrine Pesante and Jacques Dessange I would in a heartbeat. Luckily for all of us, Ian Holmes captured this absolutely perfect shoot in a way that makes my heart sing, and you can get lost in all that lovely here.

From Ian HolmesAn elegant, wedding inspired shoot on the beach within a very natural setting. We created a romantic, cozy and natural scene on a hidden beach surrounded by cliffs. It was important to keep a harmony between the feel & look of the wedding inspired theme and the stunning, wild landscape.

Staying away from sophisticated decoration, fancy dresses or hair style, opting instead for something naturally elegant and beautiful. The natural feel was achieved by using simple materials like wood, linen, raffia, shell, as well as natural make-up, white flowers of the centerpieces, the dress, the choice of table setting and of course the natural beauty of our model Fanny.

We created a relaxed and romantic space with pillows as a seating area, an intimate table setting with a wooden table and the sunset overlooking the sea.

With sensibility in the poses, the stunning raw landscape and the natural tones of the table decoration complimented perfectly the overall feel of the photoshoot.

Rustic

From La Fabrique a RevesWe are delighted to share this beautiful South of France wedding with you! A 3 day event with such an adorable couple. Taken by the gorgeous scenery and surroundings, this couple opted for a stylish but rustic destination wedding in south of France. Le Mas des Comtes de Provence is a XV centuries property with charming old stones, beautifully restored and turned into an idyllic wedding venue in the heart of Provence. At the gates of the Alpilles, Les Baux de Provence or Saint Remy de Provence, this is a remarkable place, ideally located.

After a beautiful and moving ceremony under a glamorous big chandelier hung by a gigantic pine in the centre of the garden, the guests were treated to a cocktail hour in the courtyard of a typical provencal mansion.

We used a palette of pastel color with old rose, hydrangeas and olive gorgeously fitting the setting of the historic mansion where the reception was held. The gypsophila flower garland from the ceremony and all the amazing flowers were perfectly done by our beloved florist Virginie from L’Art qui pousse.

The dinner was held next to the swimming pool where the famous caterer La Truffe Noire served a lobster salad with citrus vinaigrette, followed by a roast duck breast with honey and figs from Provence, that all guests have worshiped.

There are so many things we loved about this wedding and we are so happy that Greg Finck, photographer and MG Image, video artist, were able to offer us fantastic images of that day.

A big thank you to Thaïs & Patrick who have entrusted us with organising and managing this important day and with whom we had a lot of fun throughout the preparations. They form a very close unit and pretty family with their adorable daughter and we wish them nothing but happiness.

From Sophie Marie Photo… Like all things French, this wedding was romantic and delicious, with that je ne sais quoi casual elegance that comes so easy to the francophones. The bride and groom reserved the Chateau de Brognon in a small village just a few kilometers outside of Dijon, to host their guests for a luxurious weekend of relaxation and celebration. Festivities included an endless parade of hors d’oeurves, a flash mob surprise dance performance for the bride and groom during the cocktail hour(s), and elegant ballroom dining. The vases used for the center pieces were all from the bride’s grandmother’s antique collection.

Rustic Summer Wedding in the South of France

I think I’ve discovered my happy place thanks to these gorgeous photos by Anne-Claire Brun. She captured this rustic, romantic wedding, held at Domaine de Blanche Fleur in the south of France, where Les Mignonneries, the Bride’s own company, shined bright, designing and planning every detail to a tee. From the adorable babe to the colorful streamers, I won’t be leaving here anytime soon.

From Anne-Claire BrunCéline and Jérémie got married at the Domaine de Blanche Fleur in the South of France. I was so happy to get to shoot their wonderful and delicately crafted wedding! The Bride and Groom are the sweetest couple and they are so in love that you can feel it in the air around them!

Céline and Jérémie, it’s a story that starts in Paris. That’s where I met them for the first time, to shoot their maternity session in June 2013. And then again in August 2013 to shoot their newborn baby Romane. So, of course, when they contacted me a third time to shoot their wedding, I was on a cloud. See, when you shoot weddings you kinda get attached to people and it sucks when you never see them again. Working with the same couples, seeing them getting pregnant, with a baby, then married – not necessarily in this order :) – it’s extraordinary.

So I was already happy to shoot their wedding and I wasn’t even there yet.

When I arrived, Céline hugged me and started crying (so did I, what can I say!) She said that seeing me made her realize that this was it, she was going to get married. And all day long, I’ve been overwhelmed. Céline and Jérémie are (overly) sensitive (like me) and the speeches of their families and friends touched me.

But I think that what really struck me was the way those two looked at each other. I’ve seen many couples, but looks like that….

When I made it back to the hotel that night, it must have been around 4am but I needed to write them. Being a photographer, it’s a thousand things all at once: emails that will lead (or not) to booking a date, meetings, first photo shoots, learning how to use a camera or some retouching programs like Photoshop, managing emails, deposits, taxes, creating business (and in two countries I might add!), managing your time, your money (because some years are better than others). And some weddings are also better than others. Not because of the amount of money involved but because of the atmosphere, families, relationships, stories…. And some weddings are simply not “made” for you, we aren’t on the same level as the couple or guests are rude.

Sometimes, making the “dream” happen (= living from your passion) becomes a job. A job from which it’s hard to get away, especially when you work from home. So sometimes, things aren’t all pink: frustrations, wondering if the couple liked their photos (because if they don’t say anything, we, the photographers, panic a little!), not having enough business and comparing yourself with all the other photographers out there, and so it happens that the question pops up: “Why am I doing this?”

When I shot Céline and Jérémie’s wedding, I got my answer.

Their wedding was perfect to me. Their friendships, the kind, funny words of their guests, the stories, the look on everyone’s face, their smiles… All those emotions and moments during the day brought back my desire and passion. The will to work harder, not having weekends, spending all my time on my laptop. The will to give the best of me, to manage better and more important, to capture better days like this. This wedding was all that I love: the venue and settings and decoration, their oh-so-impressive choreography, the (French) meal…. absolutely everything.

The best weddings are those where you feel like a guest, a friend or a family member rather than a vendor. And this wedding was like this. I’m a witness of love and theirs is one of my favorite. I wish them to keep doing whatever they are doing because it seems to be the way to go :)

From the Bride… Jérémie and I met on our workplace and after working for over a year side by side, we fell in love. We haven’t left each other since then.

He had planned to do the proposal at home the evening of our anniversary… but with a 5-months-old girl, it wasn’t easy to organize things discreetly and I felt it coming … so I screwed up! He did it again a week later, roses everywhere in the living room, a candlelight dinner and the ring on the plate instead of dessert!

During the organization of the wedding, Jérémie was serene, me, a little less! But we did see things the same way so that helped. The hardest part was to prepare the dance for the bridal party and our entrance. That took a lot of time but the result was beyond our expectations!

Like many brides and grooms we spent hours on wedding blogs and Pinterest to get inspired and figure out what we wanted. We wanted something pretty simple, rustic, fun and a touch of vintage. The rest of the decoration process was inspired by the venue. It was important to us to respect the soul of Blanche Fleur with soft colors and natural elements. I actually had so much fun with organizing, creating and decorating than I opened my own event company (Les Mignonneries – http://lesmignonneries.com/)!

Our favorite moment of the day was the ceremony itself. It was crazy! Our friends who were in charge of “animating” the ceremony did a fantastic job! It was a rush of intense emotions: love, laughs and tears! We couldn’t have dreamt of a better one!
Oh and also that bridal entrance that took us so long to set up. The dance went really well and everybody was hysterical!
It was definitely one of the happiest days of our lives.

If I had any advice to give, it would be this: do what you want to do but do it together, not just the bride. And don’t hesitate to talk to your bridal party, involve them and ask for their help.

And the most important: have a wedding that is you. Have 1000 details if you like it or get married in jeans if that’s who you are!

Romantic Parisian Destination Wedding

To say this wedding is something out of a fairy tale is to put it lightly. From pre-ceremony photos all over Paris, to a reception aboard a private boat by the Eiffel Tower, dreams don’t get much better than this. One & Only Photography and Le Secret D’Audrey captured every breathtaking moment that Fete in France created, and as we wrap up this Monday, I can think of no place I’d rather be than right here.

From Fête In France… Jasmina & Maurice came to Fete in France from Switzerland to plan their intimate Parisian wedding. The couple selected the gorgeous and glamorous Shangri-La in Paris to host both their ceremony and dinner reception.

The hotel benefits from a location near the Eiffel Tower and many of the suites have a lovely view on this iconic monument. Jasmina had a suite with a view for her hair and makeup preparation.

The couple decided to do their photos before the ceremony around the city with the very talented One & Only Paris Photography. After a sweet first look they were whisked away in a vintage white Rolls Royce for photos around the city. After the shoot the couple met back up with their bridal party at the Shangri La for the ceremony. The ceremony was held in one of the historic private salons of the hotel which features high ceilings, fireplace, beautiful hardwood floors and lots of gilding. The couple, being multilingual, chose to incorporate French, German and English into their ceremony. The bride carried a bouquet of pink peonies and white garden roses. When the ceremony was finished guests showered the couple in rose petals as they headed to their cocktail hour.

The champagne cocktail hour was held on the terrace with spectacular views of the Eiffel Tower. After cocktail hour everyone headed into the Grand Salon for dinner at one long table which was filled with pink, peach and white flowers, which accented the soft gold in the room perfectly. For dinner they had a traditional French meal and the couple was toasted by close friends and family. Each guest was treated to a box of Laduree macarons at their seat. After dinner the couple cut the three-tiered cake and headed out for dancing and cocktails on their private boat. As they left the Shangri La guests held confetti guns which showered the couple in gold colored confetti as they headed to the boat. They then embarked on a moonlit cruise of the Seine where the couple shared their first dance and enjoyed cocktails with guests. They enjoyed a two hour cruise while dancing to a DJ as the monuments of Paris sailed by.
