The organic arrangements from Lily Paloma complement the Inbal Dror dress, while the dreamy white setting, with it’s lengthy drapes, candlelight and herringbone floors encompass elegance galore.

From Wedding Paris… When I proposed Audrey about organizing a styled shoot, I did not have a precise idea of which side of the parisian wedding I wanted to show. But when she gave the idea of shooting in a typical Parisian apartment all white with mouldings, it became an evidence that we wanted the result to be “simple” but oh so elegant and romantic!

Because Paris IS elegance. Because Paris is Romance. Getting married in Paris does not need too many artifices because this city brings you straightforward to the point that it is enough for itself. That was exactly the point of the shoot.

Lovers having dinner in a Parisian architectural apartment with a delightful fireplace like we can only find in France, tones of silver and white and an amazing light captivated by Audrey.

For the flowers, we wanted something organic and fresh with light tones surrounded by the heat of candlelights. Lily Paloma used wonderful buttercups, anemones and roses. Not to mention the amazing Inbal Dror dress all embroidered of white and silver that fitted so nicely in the atmosphere. The silver bolded stationeries seemed to be the continuity of the crockery.

Surprise Paris Proposal

I’m still struggling to wrap my mind around how amazing this whole situation is. Not only did this lucky lady get one gorgeous sparkler placed on her ring finger, but she got a whirlwind trip to Paris on the side. And to ensure that not a moment would be forgotten, Catherine O’Hara trailed along and captured every fantastic French moment. Even on National Proposal Day, I’m not sure if anything beats this.

From the Bride… What was supposed to be a weekend trip just outside of San Diego, California turned into the most romantic trip of my lifetime.

Cole, my boyfriend of six years, told me to pack my bags for a short weekend trip. Next thing I knew, we were in the airport terminal and he already had my passport. I had no idea where we were jetting off to since I had a grad school event in two days, but when I put on my “Oui, Mon Cherie” (French for “Yes my dear”) sweatshirt and Cole laughed, I knew we were headed to my dream destination: Paris! I was overjoyed! I had never been to Europe before and I could finally put all those French courses to good use in the most romantic city in the world.

Cole isn’t always a planner, so I was shocked when he had this secret going. With the help of my two best friends, Cole planned the whirlwind trip. The next big surprise was when we headed off to one of Cole’s favorite spots, Sacré-Cœur. We had been sleeping off jet lag when he suddenly declared we had to get to Montmartre. We hopped in a cab and were on our way. As we weaved in and out of the summer crowds around the magnificent mountain top church, I could feel Cole rummaging through his pockets. The rest was a blur! I don’t love being the center of attention, so when he got down on one knee, I quickly and excitedly said, “YES! Now get up! GET UP!” He had planned so well, that there was a secret photographer to capture the moment. We then gallivanted throughout Paris as a happy freshly engaged couple, with photographer Catherine O’Hara poetically documenting our new bliss!

Truly a “Oui, Mon Cherie” moment!

Romantic Paris Summer Wedding

Paris weddings whisk me away to a whole other world, one that is overflowing with blush and gold, where the Eiffel Tower and Arc de Triomphe appear in the background of all photos. This lucky couple said their vows in this magically chic place with a celebration planned by Fete in France, captured by BKT Films. It’s time to pop some champagne, dive into K Hulett’s photos and prepare to fall in love.

From Fête in France… Mary & Jason are a Brooklyn, NY based couple. Jason’s family is based in Paris and Mary’s family had spent time in Paris during her childhood. It was Paris where they first met, and though it was elsewhere and a while later before they got together, they couldn’t think of anywhere more perfect than Paris to get married.

Mary and Jason’s wedding was one of the most fabulous weddings we’ve had the pleasure of organizing. The event was filled with elegance and class, with elements of fun and amusement mixed in. The day was filled with surprises from bagpipers, to vintage Citroen cars, custom cocktails, and a light up dance floor for an amazing party atmosphere.

The couple had an elegant ceremony held at the American Church in Paris. At the end of the ceremony the bride and groom were led down the aisle by bagpipers – a surprise for everyone including the newlyweds and a nod to the groom’s Scottish heritage. Following the ceremony the couple was whisked away in a vintage Citroen Traction and the wedding party was picked up in colorful convoy of vintage Citroen 2CV cars – to top it off the drivers donned berets and striped “marinière” shirts. The parade of cars took the bridal party to the Eiffel Tower for group shots and then the bride and groom set off for their own personal shoot. Beautiful shots overlooking all of Paris were taken from the panoramic terrace of the Hotel Raphael and after pictures around the city the couple met their guests at the Salons France-Amériques for champagne and a menu of signature cocktails expertly crafted by mixologists from Paris’ hippest bar. Dinner was held in gorgeous salons overflowing with white and pink flowers. Each guest had a hand crafted paper Eiffel Tower filled with chocolates at their place setting. Following dinner everyone headed downstairs into the converted Turkish bath which was transformed into a nightclub for the event. The band led Mary and Jason in with Frank Sinatra’s “New York, New York” and the DJ quickly transitioned to start the party with Jay-z’s “Empire State of Mind.” The DJ had guests dancing well into the night on a colorful light up dance floor that brought the party atmosphere to the next level!

From the beautiful Bride… We decided to forgo a planner and planned the wedding all on our own in a short period of time. Being in the wedding industry, we know some weddings can take a lot of stress, effort and time which we didn’t have but generally are people who like to keep things fuss-free. Planning from the other side of the world meant relying on the good ol’ internet and a few international calls and Skype timed just right. It also meant we wouldn’t see anything tangible until the day of the wedding. There were no cake tastings, only tasty descriptions from the baker, no hair or makeup trials (which was probably the only thing that made me a bit nervous), only Pinterest boards, and most importantly, we had no idea where to get married because we had no idea what existed within this possibly fictional place we’ve only seen in movies called Paris. But we did as much as we could by putting our efforts into the details such as the flowers, props, our getting ready apartment, and some items that I made including the wedding invitations and vow books. And we made sure to invest most in our photography and videography as we knew it would be the only thing we would have to look back on this once in a lifetime moment.

Although this could be a bit nerve racking, it was actually fun to see everything come together on the big day. We knew to keep our expectations low as anything could happen especially in a place we’d never been. And ultimately the most important thing was that we were in this amazing place together to get married. We had a simple celebration with close friends and family the week prior and after much packing we were off. After an eleven hour flight across the globe with our wedding dress and suit in our carry-on, we finally arrived for the first time ever in Europe! We spent some time wandering around a few places we had in mind during our time in Paris and knew when we found the spot and decided to risk being kicked out by security guards. And a couple days before our wedding day, we found our ceremony venue.

The wedding day predicted rain so we prepared for the worst by picking up an umbrella the day before. Although the weather seemed to be on our side that morning, when Jin ran out to pick up some breakfast he was unfortunately pick pocketed in the grocery store. It was really a bummer that we were a target especially on our wedding day but didn’t let it ruin our day. The getting ready portion of our day in our little Parisian apartment was full of energy and excitement and it was nice to be pampered by getting my hair and makeup done for the first time. We also loved getting ready together, Jin steaming my dress and me helping Jin put on his bow tie. Once the makeup artist was finished, Jin left the room as I put on my wedding dress. We saw each other for the first time in our wedding attire during our first look and it was such a priceless, special moment we will never forget. We had our cake cutting, toast, and gift exchange before heading out to make it official!

The ceremony was one of the most emotional moments of the day as we both couldn’t hold back tears as we tightly held hands and recited our vows to one another. Jin had written the most beautiful vows and I couldn’t help but cry like a baby. Here we were standing in this beautiful garden in Paris about to become husband and wife and that’s when it sunk in. We really made it happen. Our dream wedding became a reality.

We spent the rest of our day around Paris taking our wedding photos as husband and wife. And as soon as the ceremony was over the rain started to come down during our photos but it only added to our wedding story. How could you be anything but happy in this place having just married the love of your life. After our special dinner, we ended the evening with a first dance as husband and wife in our apartment to a very emotional song. Clinging to one another tightly, we had never cried so many tears of joy together.

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.
