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 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.

From the beautiful Bride…Jason asked me to marry him while we were enjoying a romantic weekend on the Mornington Peninsula near Melbourne, Australia. As the sun was setting over a glass of champagne he gave me a beautiful diamond and proposed.

Jason and I wanted our wedding day to be intimate, beautiful, sacred, and filled with love. We discovered Audrey’s photos (Le Secret d’Audrey) of Parisian elopements and not only did we love her photography but as soon as we saw a photo of the Chapelle Expiatoire, a beautiful private chapel in the 8th Arrondissement, we knew we wanted to be married there. We were looking for a special destination that signified our love and everything about Paris and the Chapelle was perfect.

Through Audrey’s website I found my Dress designer Paolo Corona. I saw a dress designed by Paolo that I loved…it was feminine, soft and sensual. I emailed Paolo in Paris and the process of creating my dress began. Every part of the creation process (via skype & email) and final fitting with Paolo (and Billy) in Paris was pure joy…I sparkled from the inside out when I put my Dress on. Seeing me in that dress didn’t only bring a tear to Jason’s eye when I walked down the aisle but to my beautiful father too.

Billy (Luxe Paris Events) found a lovely private room for our reception at the Saint James Paris and then all the final details for our day fell into place. We were fortunate to find wonderful people to contribute to every part of our day. It was very special to have our dear friend Isabella Baumeler, an Opera Singer from Switzerland, join us and sing a capella in the Chapelle…her voice is incredible and touched everyone’s heart.

Our day was a magical day filled with love and romance. From the start of our day to the end we couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day with so many touching moments.

I began my day meditating in the early hours of the morning…meditating on love, commitment, and the peace I felt as I was about to marry my soul mate. I never realized how much I would enjoy this day…every minute of it. The time before with my parents as we all got ready while Sanni was doing my hair and makeup, driving through the streets of Paris in our mint green Citroen, and then seeing Jason waiting for me as I walked down the aisle with my parents towards him, feeling the love we share between us and our beautiful connection, committing to our personally written vows, Isabella’s heart touching voice, the love of our loved ones…it was all so special.

Paris…the city, the Chapelle, the people…touched our hearts and we will forever remember our day of love in this romantic city.

Everyone who contributed to our day not only provided outstanding service but they all had an openness and gentleness about them. We were truly surrounded by love and provided with timeless memories to cherish.
