Fashion Forward Bride Says “I Do” in a Truly French Style

You know Greg Finck as the French photographer behind some of our favorite weddings on SMP, and today he’s taking us to the gardens of the Rodin Museum for a day that’s every fashion lover’s dream. It’s a destination wedding featuring an Iowa couple (shout out to my home state!) who brought their style A-game to the streets of Paris with a celebration their guests will never forget. Madame Artisan Fleuriste designed the floral pretties, and you can pin each bouquet, dress and city shot inside The Vault.

From Greg Finck… Shannon and Garrett are both from Iowa and had decided to tie the knot in the City of love. Being a photographer, photography was really important to Shannon and she first contacted me more than a year ago explaining that she wanted to get married in the gardens of the Rodin Museum in Paris. I was immediately seduced by the project as this place is so full of history and magic. This place, tribute to the famous sculptor, is usually used for fashion shows and it was a dream for me to shoot a wedding there.

Shannon and Garrett hired Fete in France for the design and planning, as these girls definitely are the best out there for beautiful weddings in Paris. An elegant ceremony setup took place in the gardens including floral arrangements designed by Madame Artisan Fleuriste, and a few chairs for the 25 guests, including the couple’s close family and friends.

After exchanging vows, it was the time of a photoshoot in the city’s most scenic locations, including a stunning view on the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, and the Alexander III Bridge. Our driver took us to Bagatelle Gardens for a garden cocktail hour and an indoor reception for the perfect night.

What a beautiful Parisian day spent with this lovely American couple!

What Happens When You Fall In Love With Your Best Friend?

Why, you plan an inspiration shoot in Paris of course! With Anouschka Rokebrand behind the lens this darling duo proves that love is in the details (like this sweet lil’ posy). Because even on a foggy morning in the city of lights, the wonderment that is Paris never disappoints. So let’s stroll along with Danitcha and Maxime as they roam the quiet morning streets of Monmartre hand in hand, see it all in The Vault!

From Anouschka RokebrandLast month I traveled to Paris to do some lovely shoots, one of which being this love shoot with Danitcha and Maxime in Monmartre around the Sacre Coeur. Dutch Danitcha met Canadian Maxime in Australia (how international can it get, right?) when Dani was working there after her studies and Maxime had joined his brother there and was finishing up his studies. The connected and became great friends. When Dani wanted to do a bit more traveling after her Australia adventures she traveled to Canada and her and Maxime traveled around Canada together.

After a few months of traveling and having a lot of fun, it was time for Dani to head back home to The Netherlands and they realized they were clearly more than just good friends by now! So Maxime joined her in The Netherlands and they are still going strong! They had never done a professional photoshoot together and how romantic is it to do a shoot in Paris?
Even on a foggy morning Paris does not disappoint and we created a gorgeous shoot together.

For Dani’s outfit we opted for a Carrie Bradshaw type look with a tulle skirt from BHLDN, tanktop and gorgeous handmade lace cover up from one of my favorites, SIBO Designs. SIBO provided the gorgeous headpiece as well. We also brought along a gorgeous hatbox from Trousseau & Co. For Max we went with a classic dark navy suit that gave a wonderful contrast to Dani’s white and blush outfit.

We roamed the streets around the Sacre Coeur and found lovely spots for photos, including a lovely little terrace where we stopped for some hot tea.
Paris is and always will be, a good idea!

From Kristin SweetingWhen Laura and Brian started planning their wedding, they knew they wanted to make it an extra special experience for their friends and family. Laura had studied in Paris, so their love of the city, French style, and French food made Paris the perfect place for their destination wedding. Their weekend was full of special moments, like the double decker bus tour that they took their guests on before the rehearsal dinner and the song that Laura’s brother sang to the newlyweds at their reception. Laura incorporated beautiful details in to the day, like the custom stitched message inside Brian’s jacket and her wedding dress, which was hand painted by friend and artist Mallory Page. They made their wedding weekend a wonderful experience for their guests and family and it was clear how excited everyone was to be there to celebrate with this wonderful couple!
